How many children do you want?


I was just wondering how many children you wanted as a teenager or older? When you actually had kids, did you want the same number of children or did it change much?

I want four children, but I'm quite a few years away from starting a family so it could change of course. My mum said she wanted six and then ended up with two lol.

What do you think is the ideal family size for you or generally?

I want four... I always reasoned that we had so much fun with three as a kid that one more would be even more fun. My fiance wants two or three... I'm pushing for three. But I haven't had any yet, so that may change.

We both want 3! I just hope that giving birth the first time doesn't put me off having any more!

My husbands always wanted 3 and I've always wanted 2 or 3. Now we have one I still definitely want another so I guess we'll just have to see how we feel after the next one!

Always has been and still is two. Possibly because my mum's third pregnancy was such a bad experience for her.

When I was a teenager, I didn't want any at all but by the time I was 20, I was really broody. Ended up having my first when I was 22 and had it in my head that I'd like 3. I am now almost at the time to get ready to TTC my third and I can't wait. Didn't think I would ever feel like this again because I was adamant after my youngest that I'd never have another. I just need to stop delaying things now
