I just wanted to share how I am feeling with all of you.  I have a soon to be 4yr old and I have always told my Hubby we were only going to have one more....I only wanted to be pregnant one more time...if we had multiples that would be great but I only wanted to be pregnant one more time.  Part of this was stress of having a 3yr old and a huge part was wanting to get my body back...as when we are done having children I am having a tummy tuck and breast augmentation.  Anyways my whole prospective has changed.  After having the miscarriage and having such a hard time getting pregnant I have finally opened my eyes and realized I truly want as many children as God is willing to bless me with.  I love my son so much but I really understand now what a huge blessing children are...we are so excited at the possibility of having a large family...or a small one.  Whatever God wills.  It's amazing how God can work in your life and change the way you look at everything.  I think that one of the reasons we miscarried was to teach us how precious life is and how much we should be grateful for what we have and to long for more little ones.  I am so grateful I just wanted to share. Have a great day ladies...I’m going to clean house... :)

Sounds like the opposite of me. I realized I don't need to have a ton of children (we started off wanting around 7). I'd be perfectly content if God only gave me the two I have now. What a wonderful God we have!

I know how you feel I would love to have as many children as god could bless me with. Babies really are a wonderful gift. My husband on the other hand doesn't feel that way. He says he would be fine with our 2. I will change his mind though. Because I was four or five

My husband and I started out wanting only 4 or less but have decided that like my parents I will also take as many children as God bless me with. I am the 5th out of 7.

I started out only wanting 2. But now I really would be happy with twice that much. You don't realize what a blessing children are until you start to try for one.

I'd be happy with one full term pregnancy at this point!  LOL!  I always thought I wanted at least 2 so they would have each other when hubby and I are no longer around...But I'm thinking I'm kind of old to have 2 at this point in my life!  But like you all said, God works in mysterious ways and maybe the one time I do get lucky...it'll be more than one!  (Lost twins last month...so who knows)....Lots of luck to you all!
