Two maybe three is my limit for pregnancies. I would consider fostering/adopting down the road. I don't think i would be upset if nature had something else in store and I have a surprise. I have always pictured myself with a daughter. I am carrying my first little girl now. After that I don't have a preference. My husband would like one son but other than that the amounts of each gender don't matter.
Boys- Julian Felix, Nolan Alexander, Andersen Patrick ??? I have so much trouble with boy names.
Girls- Charlotte Elise and Genevieve Solene are more or less set, middle names might change. Third girl? Maybe Wisteria Seraphine?
4 would be my absolute limit. We will probably only have 2 though. It's so hard to narrow down my girls list!
Girls: Leta Harper Louise, Neve Anya Matilda, Leonie Eva Ottoline, Pippa Eleanor Mary or Liv Carolina Ottilie
Boys: Abram Philip North, Harrison Robert Grey, Franco "Frankie" James Ever, Armand "Armie" Christopher Finn
I don't actually want any children.
But I suppose if I did, I'd be most happy with 1 boy. -- named Bennett
2nd happy with 2 boys - Bennett and Phineas
3rd happy with 1 boy and 1 girl - Bennett and Livy
Realistically, I'd have two no matter the sex.
(Henry and James, Henry and Eleanor, Eleanor and Mary)
If I lived in a book (like the Chronicles of Narnia or The Boxcar Children), I think I'd have four.
(Henry, Eleanor, James, and Mary).
3, unless last pregnancy ended up in twins then I'd have no choice to have but 4! I'm just not organized enough to handle a lot of kids, as much as i love them. Have to think about boy names.
Girls: Gemma, Lucy, and Alice (fourth Loie)
Boys: John, and???
I want four, absolutely no more than five (which will only happen if I haven't got a boy by the fourth girl).
- Amaury Philip Theo "Theo"
- Archibald Charles Inigo "Archie"
- Henry James Nanoq "Harry"
- Felix Richard Hugo
- Anna Ingrid Alexandra "Nancy"
- Maude Olga Marina "Daisy"
- Hester Dagmar Elizabeth "Hes"
- Alienor Ivalo Josephine
Maybe three boys followed by one girl, I think that would be nice. Or just two of each.
Would I be disappointed? No. I don't think you should have children if you get disappointed because of the gender. Having children is not a game, you can't just pick whatever you like. Though I consider myself more suitable for having boys, I would never get disappointed if I had all girls.
That would be such a cute sibset:)

I really would love a girl, but I know that while they can be different to raise, boys and girls require the same to raise- love, acceptance and good role models.
I really don't have names thought out for ranking favorites. My top five per gender float around the rankings so it's hard to say :-)
Realistically, three is my limit. Five kids would be awesome but I don't think I have it in me.
All Girls (This is going to be hard)
I think two boys and a girl would be cute, like Harry's children in Harry Potter :) so Jack, Oliver and Eliza
I like the idea of brothers more than the idea of sisters. My sister and I don't get along very well so I really don't want more than one girl because I'd be afraid they'd go through the same thing my sister and I do/did, bickering and teasing all the time. I wouldn't be disappointed, just scared of all the potential fights I'd have to break up. From what I've seen of brothers they tend to get along better.
