DF was hellbent that we were done with 2. But now that she is here..he doesn't want to get the snip and admits he wouldn't hate it if we accidentally had another. Prob not for a few yrs just yet to allow for a bit more of a gap.
Dd is 6mths
Ds 7yrs. I love the gap and it's so nice the way the interact with each other and have different interests as well as each other to play with. Also I never saw myself as having lots of little children all at once. One child in nappies/toilet training at a time is my limit.
I don't feel complete just yet. I think one more in 2yrs or so will be just perfect. Well that's the hope anyway. Interesting to read others experiences. : )

there is only 3 years and 5 months between my 1st and my 3rd and yet there has only been a total of 3 months where I had 2 in nappies. I love having 3 close together, it's awesome. I see a lot of the negative comments in real life too, not aimed at me, but in general comments about having any more than 2. It's weird to me, because when I look at big families all I see is how blessed they are, I certainly dont feel sorry for them. Crazy.

Mine are 6, 3 and 4mths and it has been pretty easy. I'm getting enough sleep, dinner time was tough inn the first few weeks as the little one wanted food but she changed her routine. My oldest two are the most difficult, and usually when dp is away (he does fifo). In and out of the car takes forever, but it's much easier with the capsule. I think it will get trickier as they get older though. I live in a very small town so that makes things a lot easier I think. Going from 1-2 was a lot harder for me.

On another note.
I'm so sick of the "hoping for a girl this time" remarks.
I guess you never really understand until your in the position of possibly having three of a kind but it honestly doesn't faze me.
A girl would be wonderful - lord knows I need some more oestrogen in this household!
But being surrounded by 4 handsome men for the rest of my life? I couldn't imagine anything better!!
I just reply with "are you kidding? I'm the lady of my house" lol

FWIW my response to the 'has to be a girl' comments I just say to talk to DH about that as the gender of bub has nothing to do with me
Me + DH = DS1 (6), DS2 (2) and #3 due September 8th

Subbing as we are currently TTC #3 after much deliberation, but we both felt like something was missing from our family. I'm more worried about the logistics of how 3 works, of course life will be busier, messier, noisier and far more work, but I'm of the thinking that all the positives mentioned far out-way any difficulties.
Immediate family don't know we are ttc and we aren't about to tell them until we get that bfp 😊 They have all been of the opinion that we have the pigeon pair (dd4 and ds2.5), they are both happy, healthy kids and have an amazing relationship with each other (they are 17months apart), we have a comfortable lifestyle....blah blah blah, so why on earth would we want a third?! They just don't understand but I'm sure once #3 is here they will love him/her all the same and as much as we will

Someone once said to me you'll never regret the children you have only the ones you didn't have. I also had three older ladies on the space of a week, when DS was a newborn say they wished they'd had more children - it was quite bizarre at the time, but really stuck in my mind.
