I think you will end up doing what I did and have a large age gap between the kids. I had two sons early in my twenties and I knew then I wanted more but financially we could not afford them and my husband was not really that keen. The years then just drifted past. When I was 38 my biological clock kicked in big time and I told my husband that I still wanted that last baby and unbelievabley he agreed. All was ok until I had three misscarrages on the trot something that had never been a problem before. i was diagnosed with sticky blood and put on half an aspirin every day and alacazam my daughter was born. I now have a son of nearly 20 and one of 17 and a 2 year old. I have to say being mum this time is totally different and I am loving every minute of it.

So never say never again just put your thought of having another baby on the back burner for a while and see how you feel in a few years time. More and more women are having babies well into there 40's now.

No more - just the two - I have twin girls :o) I am blessed to be able to be a SAHM but once they are in school I look forward to finding my own identity again -right now it feels a bit lonely - probably because they are only 8 1/2 months old :O) anywho - financially college will be crazy expensive with two...that is plenty for me.

Party? I'm only having 2!! Then I can go back to uni when they go to school and have something for myself rather than just be a mum.
