    If you do decide to have a 3rd your kids will grow up being 1 of 3. I doubt theyll think much if it as that will just be their life.

    I'm currently pregnant with my 5th, my girls will be so excited once I tell them they are getting another sibling. As long as they aren't missing out on things because i had more children than I could cope with or afford than its ok.

    I can, and without knowing the family dynamic/situation, you cannot say it's selfish.

    But agree with it being too 'soon' to make a decision OP.
