    Default Who's going back for more?

    May sound like a silly question considering most of us are either pregnant or have young ones. But I was just wondering who wants more?
    My girls have been a breeze, DF and I have handled it really well, we're in routine and work together and everything runs smoothly. I just keeping thinking it'll be so easy with our next one. I'd like to have an age gap of probably 3 or 4 years and DF is ok with that. I would actually love a set of twin boys now! To those ladies who have had two sets, how hard was it for you? I don't think I have high chances of concieving twins again because my girls are I/D but I can always hope!
    So if you guys are planning for more when do you think you will go back?

    Funny your should ask this question cause my DH and I thought the same thing and when my twins were 4 months old we found out we were expecting number 3 which is due October 4th. Only 1 this time We are glad we are keeping them close in age but it has been hard being pregnant with two babies to run around after but I am the same as you my DH has been just wonderful he is a god send and we too work well together but we make sure we still make time for us and also some me time, don't get me wrong these past 11 months have been hard and such a learning experience but I wouldn't change it for the world.

    So jump in with both feet why not have more

    noooooooooooo more for me!!!! LOL, 4 is enough, and funnily enough we got asked at the shops yesterday if DD1 & DS1 were twins too! (2yr age gap)

    I would go for the 4yr age gap though!! We always wanted our kids close in age, and it will be great, is is great now somtimes, but it's hard work too. Having a slightly bigger ag gap would have been nice - DD is 4 and is just lovely, helpful and able to hold the babies. DS wants to, but isn't old enough to understand - which makes it hard.

    I'm so torn on this issue.

    Firstly, I did most of the work when the boys were really small. DP didn't respond well with tiny babies, and freaked out whenever they cried, which was often. Now they are bigger, he is A LOT more hands on, and loves to spend more time with them. But those newborn days took a terrible toll on me!

    Secondly, I would love a little girl, but I also think I could be pretty darn happy with just my two boys.

    Thirdly, I would need at least a 3 year age gap for me to be able to cope, but that just stretches out the amount of time I have to continue to stay at home, and it is stressful enough as it is, without factoring in another mouth to feed and body to clothe.

    Emotionally- yes, I would love another. (And I don't think I would be a high chance of having twins again, although I never rated myself as having a chance in the first place, it was like a one in 380 shot)

    But using my head instead of my heart- it's telling me to SERIOUSLY think about the ramifications if I was to have another one...

    Aww Nomsie
    DF would just sleep through them crying. I think I spent every night for 2 weeks crying as much as the girls! It only lasted those 2 weeks though and now if I'm too tired he just gets up and does everything.

    I know what you mean about staying home. I'm going to go back to work a couple of times a week in about a year or so and the girls can go to day care so they can socialise and I can get a bit of a break from staying home. I won't be going back full time for quite a while though, especially if we have another!

    My FIL has 6 kids and has had a vasectomy but is going back for one next year with his new wife. They told him he had a high chance of the reversal being a sucess. Although your DF may not want to go through the pain again lol.

    I don't think you're crazy, I want a big family too.

    I obviously haven't had the twins yet, but NO more babies for us after these two arrive. I'm glad fate gave us a two for the price of one pregnancy as my last pregnancy because before hand I only wanted 2 kids, so it's good to know we were ment to have 3 and that's the end of the line for us! Although DF would love to have more. But no sir-ee, hehe 3 is plenty for us.
