Ok so I know everyone says that you will never regret having another baby, only regret not having one...
I'm on the 'do we have a 3rd or not' fence, and what I'd really like to know is who out there made the decision to stick with just 2 and do you regret not having a 3rd?

i was on that fence once. we had one of each i was back at work. financially we were doing nicely. the age gap was getting bigger and bigger. our second child was special needs and very difficult. they were toilet trained slept all night did up their own seat belts etc.
i had the third and honestly I've always felt he was special. not as in favour him cause i don't. but like he has a special role to play in our family. kwim ? I've never for even one second regretted choosing to go for three.

I'm having the thoughts with my hubby about a 3rd.. we have one of each with an exact two year age gap. they are 3 & 19 mths old and it's hubby that wants another one more so than i do. I know it sounds terrible, but i had such a miserable 2 pregnancies with my really bad back and severe (and i mean really severe) vomiting that it's put me off. what to do!!

My DP and I had two daughters between us that are now 10 and 4. Dd3 - now 8 months, was unplanned and we had not planned to have any more. Our Dd3 was just meant to have a place in our family and we are now TTC #4. We would surely have regretted not having more children later in life. Good luck on your fence lol. Xx

I'm not ttc #3, just #2. But I think the same applies no matter how many you're considering.
Someone on here posted a reply saying "You'll never regret the children you have, only the children you don't". Seems pretty right to me. I could never regret my DS. You might regret timing, you might regret not doing something else first etc. etc. but you will never regret having the child themselves unless there's something underlying (I won't rule out depression or something like that).
I say if you're financially able, in a happy relationship, in a good position at work (or your partner is) and you want another baby then the math leads to an answer itself .
