I've just found out I'm unexpectedly pregnant with my third. We have two older children, a happy marriage, two good jobs, good family support.
But thinking about starting again I just feel....tired. I've given away all my baby things, we are moving into the school years.
Probably my biggest worry is money, we do ok, have savings, but also have a pretty nice lifestyle that I don't think we could continue with a third. Kids activities, school, clothes. We would eventually have to extend the house.
Is having to sacrifice a lifestyle a big enough reason to not continue with a pregnancy? I've been googling costs of a third and it seems frightful.
But when I think of a baby I can picture it, but the hard yards of paying for a third for another two decades? It's frightening.
I know no one can decide for us, but I feel too ashamed of my thoughts to talk with friends.
