  • hahaha, sorry I laugh because I am doing the same thing. I have two girls and love them to death. I want another and then I'm like, ugh 9 months of big belly, and then all those diapers...With that said, we will be ttc again in july after we have a honeymoon without a big belly in the way!

  • Oh yeah, our marriage is great and we are not rich but secure financialy.

    I worry about the being pregnant thing too, I had gestational diabetes with both. So I will most likely have it again.

  • Well, three is more work and cost but if you can mentally, physically swing it again, a larger family is always fun. Depends on your life. Do you mostly stay home, do soccer games, have bbqs, etc or do you travel, go out a lot and that sort of thing? I like to travel, go out, enjoy music, fine dining, etc. The four of us fit in a car, it's not terrible to fly, and we'll only pay for 2 colleges. That said, for me, I couldn't have done the baby thing all over again. If you can, do it. I grew up with a larger family and it is so fun!
