I have a 3yrs old and a 7yrs old, but my husband and i are thinking about having a 3rd. But we are so torn on whether we should or not. I feel like there is something missing.. how do we decided?

It's not a decision anybody can make for you, really.

But, here's a bit of a litmus test. If your husband came up to you tomorrow and said, "You know what? I've decided that no, I definitely do not want any more kids," what would you feel in your gut? Relief? Or disappointment?

I find oftentimes, if someone is torn between two decisions, they tend to find it easier to decide when they pretend the choice has already been made for them. :)

Besides, nobody's saying you have to have one RIGHTFREAKINGNOW. Maybe take another 6 months to think on it...if you really want another kid, the feeling will grow to the point where it's bugging you. :)

Like Krista said No one can make this decision for you. If you think that you are missing something and having another child would fill that...then i would probably try to have another one.

To be honest, i think i would be disappointed if he did that... knowing i wouldn't even have the option to think about having another!
Thanks :)
