Here's our poll of the week!

I'm sure we all have a range in how many children we'd like, but it's time to pick! In your ideal world...

i said 5 or more... but it's really more like 3-5. i could see us with 5 kids, but dh isn't quite on board with anything above 3 right now, lol. we are planning to have at least two (i'd like to have three) and adopt 1 or 2 so my cap right now is 5 :-)

Lesly - LOL. Ditto!!

DH and I want 3-5 children, but at this point it doesn't feel like we'll even have 1! Regardless of how we expand our family (whether through pregnancy or adoption) I certainly want more than 1...

I said 3! Seems like a good middle number. If we ever get even 1 lol.

Well, DH comes from a family with 6 (3b/3g) and I come from a family of 3. Ideally, as many as we can, but I really want at least 3. DH says after the IVF, if we can conceive on our own (and keep it) great, we will keep going, if not, we'll use up our frozen embies. Not sure how many of those there will be.

I'd like 3, maybe 2 if we have one boy, one girl. I come from a family of 5 and would like to be able to provide a little more for my children than my parents were able too. We didn't suffer or anything, but DH and I have paid for everything ourselves (wedding, house, car, school, etc). Actually he got some help with school so that plus scholarships he doesn't have any. Anyway, point being, I don't think we can afford to support more than 3 the way I want too (not lots of 'toys' but the bigger things).
