I would love to have my third child with my husband but not sure if its the right time. I have two boys now and the ages are two years old and three years old. I am in school online and I have about five more years in school so I was thinking it would be good to try for my little girl now and get it out the way I am 25 my husband is 26? My husband has a good job supporting us etc.. just would like to get others opinion on what they think of this situation thanks a bunch!

we have 3 kids, there is 18 mos b/w 1 and 2, there is 22 mos b/w 2 and 3. honestly, there really isn't much difference b/w having two kids and having three kids - just the amount of love and giggles, but it's not more stressful than having 2. i love that they are close in age.
if you want a girl, have sex two days before you ovulate. it will increase your chances of getting a girl.
if you feel the time is right, then go for it. if not, then put the decision on the shelf, agree on a date, 6 mos, 3 mos from now, etc. don't discuss it together until that date and see where you are at that point.

iv just had my third i have a 14 year old and a 13 year old in some respects im glad i have such the large gap as i also want number 4. i have more time to focus on the baby now my older children are teenagers and more independant. if you feel now is the right time go for it embrace it and be happy

Sophia, I am going through the same decision process right now. We also have two boys. They are 2.5 years and 4.5 years. I don't want to wait much longer because of the age gap. It is a tough decision.

it is whatever you and your husband think...it could slow your schooling down and there is no guarantees it will be a girl:) all the best
