For years my hubby have gone back and forth about having a 3rd so we are giving ourselves 1 more month to decide. We both hate the constant going back and forth on having a 3rd baby and we want to come to a decision, whichever way it goes, accept it and move on.
We would love another one, but the hurdles of having another shadow that desire quite a bit. How did you overcome all the craziness that a 3rd brings, or did you know that you couldn't overcome it and settled with the 2?
We have a pretty small house and for the first time in a long time we are debt free (apart from the mortgage... but since we've got that for another 20 years I try and forget about it! lol) and we have a small little bit of savings. I only have to work 1 day a week with the option to not have to (but we then wouldn't have any savings). My dilemma is that our office is already in the small single car garage, so I'd have no idea where to put the baby/babies (We have 2 girls, I am a twin, my sisters are twins, there are twins all in our family, so going for a 3rd baby we have to be realistic that twins could happen.).
Our house is 3 bedrooms so the girls share and one room is the playroom, if we had another I don't know where the baby would go lol the rooms are too tiny to try and put toys in with the girls beds. How do people make it work?
We'd have to get a bigger car/new carseats that fit 3 on the back, I no longer have any baby stuff so we'd have to get all that stuff again.
The whole baby sleeping with school drop off and picks up sounds insane too, the extra money involved in having another is crazy also.
Can you make it work? It saddens me to think I will never be able to experience giving birth to another baby and having one grow up around me to love and cherish, but do i have to be realistic in what my dreams are, and maybe financially, emotionally, mentally, etc we can only have 2 children?
I'm curious to know how other people went in a similar situation and what decision and why you came to this?
(sorry if this was a long post!)
