Is having another child right for my situation?

I'm 24 years old, and my husband is 32. He has a 9 year old son from a previous marriage and together we have a 2 1/2 year old. We have my stepson half the time, and I know my son has a sibling, but part of me still wants another child. There are many reasons it makes sense to be done, I gained a lot of

with my first pregnancy and still haven't lost it, we have a 2 bedroom house, so if I had another that would be 3 kids sharing a room. I know a third child would cost more, but still with all of these reasons I still can't feel 100 percent content. My husband will have another if I want one, but since he has two sons of his own he is content. I can't tell what I should do because one week I think my husband can go get a vasectomy then the next I'm ready for another. I know I'm young, but my husband is a little bit old than me and doesn't want to wait much longer if we are going to have another,and I don't want there to be a big age difference between my son and another little one. Just curious of some opinions or similiar situations? I'm envying people who just know if they want another or not.

I would give it 6 months if you still want another one than have another one.
