I currently have a 2 year old daughter and a 6 month old son.
Since the day my son was born hubby and I have been talking about having a third. I want them to be close in age so I feel like I need to make a decision soon. Financially I know it will be harder but it will work. We said that if we had two boys/two girls that we would try for the third baby but since we have one of each I wonder if we should or not.
Part of me for selfish reasons wants my body back (no more breast feeding/weight gain etc) but on the flipside I loved being preggo and had easy pregnancies/delivieries. At times I think that having a third would increase my stress level but I really want a bigger family and love my kids! When I search this type of post, most women with 3 kids have one that is significantly older (usually from a previous relatiomship) and then 2 younger ones. I would like to hear from people that have 3 young kids close in age as this is much more difficult to deal with in the beginning. Advice? Tips? Thought??
