    Default Anyone mid 30's considering TTC #3

    We currently have a 3yo and an 8 month old and are discussing the possibility of a third (wont TTC for at least another 6 months though).

    Is anyone else mid thirties and considering TTC #3.

    I go back and forth as i believe that we can have a much better lifestyle financially with 2. We can put 2 through Private Schools if we choose, but probably couldn't with 3. Having two would mean we could take more holidays and do more things.

    I also worry about my age and incredibly dodgy miscarriage history.

    But as one of two children i love the idea of there being another sibling. DH is one of three and if we had had kids when we were younger, I'm sure that there would have been three or four.

    Is anyone else in this position? Id love to hear from those who have had a third when in their mid thirties too.

    Hey giag, I'm like you, back and forth in my thinking. Ds1/2 were IVF and we are not keen to go down that path again, so we're considering trying naturally. I have PCO and have been closely tracking my cycles etc.
    I would love a girl, perhaps we'll swap our youngest?

    I'm 36 and 8 weeks pregnant with number 2. We are going to go back for number 3 after this one as well. I was just shy of 35 when I had our first daughter.

    I'm 34 and we'll be trying for #3 at the end of the year. We have DD1 (3 yrs) and DD2 (9 months). We were thinking of TTC a bit earlier but we're travelling in July and December and I get terrible morning sickness so we'll wait. Still undecided on 3 or 4 children - I guess my age will play a part in that.

    I'm 34, DH is 37, I'm going back trying for no 3 in April / may this year.

    My oldest is 6.5, youngest, 2.4. I know I'm not finished, yes it means upgrading the car, but these things happen, and we know it.
