Ugh, I’ve been a crazy person all week trying to figure out if we should go for #3 or not....I constantly go back and forth, it’s driving me crazy! I feel like I’m never going to feel 100% certain one way or another

Maybe I was more confident that I wanted 3, but I decided to just NTNP and let nature decide. We had plenty of reasons that 2 would be easier, but I just couldn't get #3 out of my head. My last two will only be 14 months apart, but we are getting really excited now, and I haven't thought much more about all the cons. In a few more years, I'm sure we won't be able to imagine life without #3. I think I'd be more likely to regret not trying than having another kid.

I'm doing the same right now missy. Im currently 8 days late for af, a few bfns and starting to wonder if #3 is a good idea. Mainly its a financial/space thing. I have a job lined up to start in September when ds starts full time school.... a baby would mean i cant take that job (i know i could pay childcare, but by thr time i paid for 4 days a week childcare i wouldnt be making any money!!)

I cant get #3 out of my head... but maybe im starting to feel it's a selfish decision.. almost like taking away from dd and ds to fulfil my needs.
Of course IF I am pregnant now I will love the baby so so much and wouldnt hesitate to 'make it work' but this waiting has given me time to think more realistically for sure.

Yes yes yes!!! we already have 3 boys ( triplets ) and id love the thought of another little boy running around the house ( i think id be terrified if it was a girl ! ) but we also have the cons too - 2 of our trio were born with clubfoot which is now corrected, i have an underactive thyroid and recently found out that i have PCOS. im coming off the pill end of this cycle and were just going to see what happens !!

I’m in the same boat but at a slightly higher number. This would be our 5th baby /cs! Keep swinging back and forth between my heart and head. Luckily we have a big house (5bedrooms) so have space. But everything else is bang on!

We are about to start ttc baby #2. I'm 95% sure this will be my last. However, I was very brody before my first, now I'm very brody for this one. I wonder if I'll have the same feelings when #2 is older. Or will I feel done? I've thought about being a mom since I was a teenager, so I wonder if I'm just wired to want to be pregnant and have a baby lol.

I think 2 will be a good number because they have a buddy and they will be manageable when we go out. My husband works 2nd shift, so it's often just me. I'd run out of hands after 2!

I could see 3 being more fulfilling in the long run though. I secretly hope I have twins (If I fall pregnant with 2, I might regret wishing that for a couple years lol)

Im on the fence about num 3.
Ds is nearly 5, dd is 16 months.
But ds needs brain surgery in 6 months ish
So timing not great.
But im nearly 38 and hve had 4 mc.
Took 2.5 yrs to get dd so.......
Still dithering.
Shpyld wait till after surgery and house extension done but I dont want to .
But then I hve times where I think wouldn't life be easier if I stopped now.
Ds has special needs and always will.
Great little dude but needs lots of care.
Rambling myself in circles here
Just like real life.
Also no af back cos still bf dd
But ov or trying to anyway.
