we always thought we'd have just 2. DH has a sister who suffers terribly with middle child syndrome and we didn't want that. But losing Oscar has made us think again.

We are now considering having 3, but I will honestly and truly be happy with one healthy, take home child.

Oscar, will forever be out Eldest son with his little brother or sister becoming the youngest or middle child.
Me 29
DH 30
Oscar forever 5 months
Our beautiful son Oscar, born 24/2/14 at 32 weeks with Tetralogy of Fallot, oesophageal atresia and tracheo oesophageal fistula. Earned his wings aged 5 months and 1 day.

Oscar is going to be a big brother. BFP #2 29/11/14

When I was younger I wanted five kids...then I had one. After experiencing labour I was like I'm not going through that again for a long time! Now he's 6 and I'm finally ready for this little bean I'm having. Now that I'm pregnant again I'm like yeah maybe have one more after that, but I know I might change my mind after the birth. I'm 27 so got some time, so we might have 3. I think everyone has to do what's right for them :-).

I always said I wanted 2-3 GIRLS...but we'll see after this pregnancy how I feel about having more. I'm already hating being pregnant - I've been super sick and tired, it's just awful. I joke with DH that if this is baby a girl I might just be done. HA :doh: :rofl: DH said ideally he wants one boy and one girl.
