How many kids is enough kids

Many people have their own ideas of how many kids they should have, and also how many kids is considered enough kids.  People also have their own ideas on the amount of kids others should have.  Some people believe two or three is enough. (I know alot of people who believe that)  This day in age it doesn't seem attractive to have alot of children, but back in the day it was a good thing.  In many families your grandmother or great grandmother had anywhere from 5-12 kids.  I feel like these days when you go over the two mark, people want you to slow down.  At three they want to cap you off.  When you go for four, the response is like "What are you doing!"

Have you ever watched TLC's reality show 19 kids and counting? Imagine what there family and friends thought. 
It seems like your first kid, people are always excited; the second one they are equally excited because they are usually hoping for the opposite sex.  By the third it's like "Oh, ok another one, that's nice". By the fourth  child the reactions get weird. Some are positive, some are a little odd. The excitment from the first child, is definitely not there.

I have also heard people say that it is selfish to have so many kids when they are few resources in the world. I personally think that is a ridiculous comment.

As I said before I have 3 children and I am pregnant with my fourth, and I have gotten different reactions starting with the pregnancy of the 3rd.  Especially since my second and third are 15 months apart. I personally feel if you are not raising my children, caring for them in any way then it shouldn't concern you.  I am married and have been for a while and I feel as if there is nothing wrong with a big family. My mom had me and my brother, so I don't think she thinks you should go over 3 for sure. My husband has about 13 brothers and sisters so I have seen both sides.

I never thought I would have 4, however I have 3 boys and have been trying for a girl so that's really how I got to #4.

What are your thoughts?? Leave a comment and let me know your take on it all and how many kids you have if any.
