Debating number 3

Melissa - posted on 07/07/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




I'm 24 and my husband and I have been married for 3 years now. We have a 2 year old and a 4 month old. Both of them were concieved while on a form of birthcontrol (shot and then pill). We are wanting to plan our next. Our girls are 21 months apart... when do you think we should start trying for (hopefully) lucky number 3? (we are hoping to get a boy this time)

Congrats on the 2 you have! I have 3- a 15 yr old girl, 11 yr old girl and 9 yr old boy. I love the age difference between them. The only problem I have ran into is that my midle one has what I have heard of has middle child syndrome. She kind of blends in doesn't seem to stick out in the aspect of she feels like she is left out of things alot. It has become very hard recently because her oldest sister is involved in so many things in high school and the youngest is somewhat of a hassle at times. I have made a strong effort to do more things with her and keep her happy!
I would say a few years difference is good but I wish I would have maybe spread them out a little more.
I have been thinking about number 4 but I am not sure I am ready to have a baby again.

I'm 28 and have a 10 yr old, 6 yr old, 2 yr old & 3 mnth old....all boys!

We always said we wanted 4...although our 3rd & 4th were meant to be a girl...hahaha

We've given up now and are staying at 4

I'd say whenever you feel ready for baby number 3, go for it....good luck xx
