    I'd like to have 3. I wouldn't be unhappy with 2 or 4 though, all depends on what the father would like too!

    Children are an eco-nightmare (yeah, I'm one of those people) and I have a pretty intense fear of pregnancy/birth.

    I might adopt in my 30s/40s but nothing is erupting from my womb if I can help it.

    I still get broody. It's not fun.

    At the moment I'd like three, but in the future that would depend on my circumstances - I definitley would only have that amount of children if I could provide for them emotionally, financially etc. Definitley at least two.

    I would like at least 4 children, because I have 3 siblings and can't imagine life with any fewer. :rolleyes:

    I'm with you on this, except the broody part.

    I would be willing to adopt as well, my brother was adopted and I would love to do for a kid what my family has done for him, people who say it is not the same are talking bull****.

    I already have 2 boys!.I only ever wanted 2, wasnt fussed on whether they were boys or girls.I am the oldest of 2, my brother is just 15 months younger than me so I cant remember what it was like to be the only child.

    I must say I find it quite patronising to tell someone who doesnt want kids that they will change their mind!.Yeah some might , but not all do.One of my friends my age ( late 30s) never wanted them and she never had any.

    Breeders : Please please please STOP generalising and patronising us. Just because some women change their minds doesn't mean we all will.
    I'm not a "breeder" I'm just pointing out that most people end up having children anyway. Didn't mean anything bad by it, most people weren't planned.

    I have three, and that's fine by me.

    We had the first one, and I wanted another...
    we had the second one, and I wanted another...
    we had the third one, and I knew, even during my pregnancy, that he would be our last. Neither of us want more than three.

    likewise please stop referring to parents are "breeders", it's a somewhat derogatory term.

    I have 4 older brothers, but they're much older than me, so I pretty much grew up like an only child, however we're quite close now, so I would like to have more than one kid because I think having siblings is really wonderful. I'm not sure how many I'd like though to be honest, I'll see how I get on after the first one

    I'd like three but I'm not fussy as long as it is more than one and I can afford them.

    I would like 3, but I'd be happy with two. I would hate to have an only child.

    I would like to have 3 children. I have 4 brothers so I know how much it means to have siblings.

    However, I also want 196 children (1 born in every country).
