How long are you all planning to wait for no 2? Or are you "one and done"?
Did having your first change your expectations about how many LO's you want?
Not a FTM but I remember thinking about more. I didn't get to a point where another child didn't seem terrifying until about 18 months PP, and even then it was a wine induced choice haha. I never expected parenting to be the way it is, even still, the older my child gets, the more I am shocked.
Before kids, I would have wanted 4 or 5. Now, I am counting down the days to graduation. :P Okay, not really, but..there are some rough days.
I'm a FTM. I'm not scared or overwhelmed by the thought of more at this point.
We are planning to start trying for #2 in two years. We currently would like to stop at two children.
We're going to start trying when DD is almost 3. I want her to be able to enjoy her baby/toddler stages without having to worry about another young'n.
1 week PP I was dreaming about having 2 more, but I think we're ok with just one more. DH will be 37 going on 38 when we try for #2 and he already says how old he is now (34 ... Come on now!)
If I could, I'd be a Duggar.
No, seriously, I'd like 4 or 5 close together if I could be a SAHM. But that's not feasible. We have to wait until LO is 3 or 4 to be able to afford the day care costs.

Now that I have DS, part of me wants to have 3 or 4 kids because I love him so much and he is so perfect. However, I also see what a full-time job iris. We will definitely have another, but I don't think we'll be ready for the second one to be born until DS is 3 or 4. The thought of having a two year old and an infant Is overwhelming and i feel like I would never get to sleep again!
also, DS is literally the easiest baby ever, so I am terrified that the next might be WAY more challenging.
Not a FTM but I have always wanted three children and I wasn't scared of having more after DS1. However, the more time went on, the more I appreciated his self sufficiency. I was more afraid for DS2 than I was with DS1. I wasn't sure how I could handle having two kids. They are almost exactly 3 years apart.
I recently got an IUD, and I want to be done having children. FI wants one more, so I said that we'd reevaluate in two years.
Even though my LO is not a super easy baby (not really difficult either), I can not wait to have another. But I will. We will probably wait until he is about 1.5 years to try again. Maybe sooner, maybe later depending on how things are going.
I always thought I wanted 3 kids, but now knowing how much work 1 is, I am not sure how people have 3+. So it is likely we will stick to 2, maaaaaaaaaaybe 3.
