I always wanted 3 kids. Preferably 2 girls and a boy. I thought it would be fun to have 2 girls close in age so they could be best friends and then have a boy in there, too, either first or last. Just like the Conners from the show "Roseanne".
Then I finally got married and after several fertility treatments including IVF, got pregnant with twins. I was hoping for at least one girl. I thought a girl would be more fun to dress and I wanted to be able to buy Barbies and Polly Pockets and princess stuff. Boy/girl twins would have been really cool, but the nice thing about them being the same gender was that it made decorating the nursery easier.
I would have loved to have a third, and maybe I would have been able to realize my dream of 2 girls and a boy, or, just as great, had another girl with plenty of hand-me-downs, but we just really can't afford another, especially since we'd have to do a frozen embryo transfer (FET) and there's a good chance it wouldn't even work. So, I am forever the mom of 2 girls. And it's awesome.
