    When I was younger I thought I would not want any (too much of a career girl). Then I wanted 3 (I come from a family of 3 kids). Now I have one boy and a baby on the way, two will be a wonderful family for me. Two seems easier for a number of reasons - car, traveling by plane, one hand for each of them when you are by yourself.

    Before I had a baby, we both said 2. Then after our son was born and we fell in love, we said 3. He still says 3, but I`m still trying to get him to do more with the first one, so we`ll see if there`s even a second:)

    just curious... one person has responded with "none"... interesting for a board devoted to mostly mums & a few dads.

    i hope that the person that voted 1 has not had any kids. i would hate to grow up knowing that either my mum or dad wished that i didn't exist.

    Three -- I'm waiting anxiously for number 2 to appear as this pregnancy hasn't been a bag of laughs. Both hubby and I are determined to adopt number three if we feel the itch for another baby; as we're both of very different races our families are happy taking on more colours so to speak!

    I wanted to have two, only one now. Need to convince my husband which is undecided. Any suggestions how to do it?

    I don't agree with you (it wasn't me). I said 2 and I have 3. That doesn't mean I love my "3rd" child any less than the others, it just means that if things had gone differently I wouldn't have 3 children. I would never tried to get pregnant for no. 3 (at least intentionally and I hope Mirena is doing its job). This person (assuming it's not a "troll" vote) may ideally not have wanted children, but things went differently. That doesn't mean she doesn't love her child any less than we do or that she wished she can "put her back".

    i didn't say that it definitely meant they didn't love their child. i said, i HOPE that they hadn't. if a person really didn't want kids then had one, it COULD cause resentment towards the child. i would hate for the child to feel that.

    i'm not accusing anyone of anything.
