    Default How many children did you imagine you'd have...

    When you were a child?

    As in, 'when I grow up I want 4 kids'.

    I used to think I'd have 3 kids, then when I got older I thought 2.

    Now I have one and I'm content with that

    None. I never really wanted to be a mum when I was growing up, though I think that had more to do with my relationship with my mum.

    I never had an exact idea, I just knew I wanted a big family. Then I met dh and we both agreed 2-4 (although never expected to even have 1 as he was told it would be a miracle if he ever fathered a child... Someone got that wrong big time!).

    I wanted 6 while growing up. Now we have 4. I feel like I might want just one more but then I think I could have 16 and still want just one more hah

    Just the one. Currently only have my Angel Baby who passed at 8 weeks gestation.

    Still trying to fill that void and have my one Earth Baby.

    Never really thought or "dreamt" of having kids or a wedding or anything really. I don't know if that is unusual or just because I also don't have a close relationship with my mother.

    Always wanted 3 and about to have number 3 and am very done.

    If we'd have had a boy and girl then DH would have been happy to stop at 2. I think I would've convinced him into a 3rd but he would have been doing it for my sake than his own wants.
