    I get heart palpitations just thinking about a third. As @Zombie eyes said once the kid to parent ratio favours the former, things get crazy!

    I worry about my mental health having a third, I think they'd have to put me away for a while if I were to have a third.

    Oh guys, a third is great. 😀Haven't found going from 2 to 3 difficult at all. If I had special needs children then I wouldn't have had a third as can see how things would be crazy. If I hadn't have had a difficult worrying pregnacy and such an excruciating labour and birth and had remaining embryos to use we would go for number 4.

    Yes but to be fair, you apparently dont find anything a challenge.

    You've been around for a while so you know Zombie enough to see that your post is quite rude, yes? I'm actually quite shocked that you said that and I'm not usually too bothered by what people say these days!

    My 3rd DS has a few health issues and special needs. I wouldn't change it for the world now but I do struggle some days, this year has been full on appointments every week.

    But if you had 3 healthy easy babies with only 1 embryo left I'd go for it, especially as money isn't an issue or space. Do it!

    I personally find it quite full on with 3 and often a struggle but also get by.

    Default 3rd? Is it a bad idea?

    I think people are being a little unfair and reading far too much into the post. Maybe the words could have been a *bit* different but Surely you have to agree with the essence of the post: that special needs kids (I would add although just as Loveable) can be bloody hard work and stress? I have a low threshold for stress and don't think I could cope with 3 special needs kids either. That's a reflection on my lack of ability rather than the anything to do with a special needs mum. To be honest I probably would struggle with 3 healthy kids - that's a whole other thread though!

    I would go for it for no3. I have 6 kids, 4 with special needs and I don't regret a single one of them. Yes it's way harder than just having 2 but the rewards OMG the reward are million times more.

    Honestly no one will ever be able to tell you if it will be harder or easier. It all depends on your children there nature and personalities and how they mix and bond. This not only for the children you already have but for bub too.

    I think her timing was the issue. If she'd made that post not so close to Zombie's post I would have thought it slightly insensitive but unintentional. The timing was terrible and obviously so.

    I'm due with #3 now. I will have a 5 & 3 yo when it's born. Not an ideal age gap as I originally wanted 3 under 4yrs but this is what life dealt me.

    I'm actually more excited for the pregnancy than both my previous ones. Go figure.
