Finding out with my DS and DD was so wonderful and I'm glad that I did but especially now that we have one of each I think it would be really lovely to find out at birth, especially since I was a team baby (and my mom's only team baby).
I'm also hoping that I can go without an epidural this time. I could have gone without it during my labor with DD and really regret that I got it anyway. It was just so great the first time but it didn't work properly the second time so it wasn't worth it.
Hopefully finding out at birth will give me extra motivation during labor too!
I think the only problem DH and I will have is finding names for both genders that we can both agree on. With DS we couldn't agree on a girl name and fortunately didn't need one. With DD we couldn't agree on a boy name and fortunately didn't need one. I'm not looking forward to having to fight with him about names for BOTH genders. I'm not a fan of unisex names and neither is DH so that's not an option
However it may be possible to find a name that has both a male and female form (for example DD's name is Thea Denise so if she had been a boy she could have possibly been Theo Dennis).

I'll join you ladies. We currently have two children and are 50/50 about having a third. I think we will probably end up going for it as we both come from larger families (both one of 4) so 2 kids doesn't seem enough. I think we both feel in our heart that somebody is missing. 3 would definitely be our limit though and it will only happen if the circumstances are right in terms of house/finances etc.

We will be wtt til at least Autumn 2018 as we have a lot going on this year, I have quit my job and am returning to a previous career but it means doing a period of around 12 months professional study first, then once I have a new job we want to move house as we have outgrown our current home. 2018 seems so far away but I know it's the right decision. I'll be happy to get to know you ladies while we wait. Happy new year to you all.

Hello and welcome!
I put you under September 2018 for now, let me know if anything changes or if you want to add anything.

It sounds like we're pretty similar. 2018 is the best time for us too as I know this year just isn't feasible but I don't want too big an age gap at the same time. I came from a really big family (#4 out of 10) but DH is #1 out of 2 (technically #2 out of 3 from his dad but he doesn't know is older sister and didn't grow up with her). 3 or 4 children feels like a good balance for us but 4 would be our maximum and we'd have to be in a really good position financially. I really don't want to WTT any later than September 2018 but my husband still isn't absolutely certain yet, a lot will depend on our financial situation.

Hi! I'd love to join you ladies if that's okay?

Currently 6 days late for my period, with back and forth positive and negative tests...so waiting to see what the result is. BUT I am thinking it is a chemical :/

DH and I are waiting to try until beginning on 2018. Probably around March (unless we decide to move it up.) We currently have a 2yr old girl and an almost 7 month old baby boy! Can't wait to chat with you wonderful mamas while we wait!

I'm finding it quite exciting that I can say 'we are TTC next year'.

Hello and welcome ladies!
I added you both to the list in the second post. Let me know if anything changes or if you would like me to add anything.

ashleyg - I don't know if you remember but we were in TTC for #2 together. It's great to see you in here TTC in 2018 with me again.

ssarahh - It is a little daunting to think of it that way isn't it? I'd be freaking out right now if we decided to try this September instead even though that would give us roughly the same age gap that DS and DD have!
