    Lightbulb Feeling exhausted by the 3rd baby dilemma. So I’ve made a decision.

    It's been 15 months now of daily agony and dilemma weather or not to have 3rd baby. This plagues me All Day Every Day!. I can't take it anymore i want my mind back. I want to stop thinking about it.

    So here goes to TTC #3, because I've just had enough of the daily brain puck. Still not 100% convinced it's the best thing to do but i can't keep living like this (tears of pain and longing for my 3rd then moments of 'puck no I'm over having kids')

    Hubby will get the snip once I'm 30 weeks and that will be that! Done.

    I hope in the end it will all work out for as a family of 5.

    THIS is exactly me!!! All day every day! Well almost all day.
    I'm pretty certain I have decided now and will start trying in July. I've actually gotten my head around a 3rd a bit better and I'm starting to feel excited instead of scared.
    I'm just hoping that once reality sets in I don't freak out
    Goodluck!!

    This was me too, but for #5. we are ttc now but it's still a small mind battle some days. More worried about my other older kids how they will cope dd12 and ds9 to be exact. Dd12 doesn't want anymore siblings and ds9 said if it's a girl it's not coming home.

    Default Feeling exhausted by the 3rd baby dilemma. So I’ve made a decision.

    My best friend is from a family of 5 children and she is the eldest.

    I was discussing with her whether or not to have a #3 and she mentioned how she was horrified every time her parents announced another pregnancy.

    I'd never realised before that siblings could react that way... And in her case it wasn't just a grudge for a couple of days. She was unhappy about the new dynamic for years.
    What makes them so unhappy? Is it to have to share their parents with more people? Or to have to work more around the house?

    My kids are only little and at this stage I'm sure they'd love having a #3, #4 and #5 lol

    I remember a girl I went to school with was from a large family and she was always embarassed when her mum was pregnant. Her year 12 comments in the year book for most popular phrase was 'mum's pregnant again.' My teen would die if I had a baby. Mainly because it would mean going back to room sharing, having to put up with a crying baby, me not being able to drive places due to the sleeping baby etc. A baby would cramp the teen and pre-teen lifestyle far too much!

    I was in the exact same position a few years back. Thankfully we decided to go ahead and have #3 - best decision ever (so far anyway / he is now 16 months). I think you know when you are done and the fact you are constantly thinking about it shows you're not done. Very exciting - good luck!!!

    How does/did everyone deal with being pregnant and the tiredness and all that comes with being pregnant and still looking after two small children? Thats a big thing that scares me.
