Talk to me about #3

Postby Hope4two » Wed Dec 18, 2013 10:20 am

So DH and I have 2 kids. As you can see, 5 and 1. I never thought I would want another especially with 2 miscarriages in between but I have been feeling the itch for #3. If I tried next month my last 2 would be 2 years apart. I don't know if I could handle that. I am 34 and feeling like time is starting to tick for me. How did you make the decision for 3? And what is the spacing of your kids? FYI I am currently a SAHM.

I have two little girls right now. It took 4 years to conceive the first naturally, and then my second I conceived 9 months later - ON BIRTH CONTROL, so they are 18 months apart. I am 30 now, with the oldest being 4 and the youngest 2.5......and I love it. I am also trying for # 3 even though it will be bam bam bam, but I know I want three and don't want to wait to long where there might be issues.

Working on #3 as well. I was told if I didn't want more kids, then I need a partial hysterectomy. Even though we originally planned to wait, and we'll actually have to sell our house to make room, we couldn't stand the idea of not trying now while we still can. My mother always said 'Only make decisions you can live with.' That's why we're trying.
