Was your #3 baby an "accident"?

I've noticed in my circle of family and friends and people I know that their 3rd born baby was not it true?
We have 2, girl and boy. Hubby says he's done, but won't get fixed.
I want more kids and keep reminding him that most 3rd born baby's are "accidents".

  • Our second and third were unplanned. Our plan was to wait until #1 was a year old and then try for #2. #2 came along when #1 was 13 months old. Then the plan was to try for #3 when #2 was two years old. #3 came along when #2 was 20 months old. So they just came a bit early.

  • My MIL says they are still trying to figure out where # 4 came from! I have a friend her oldest was 28 when the baby came along, neither she nor her husband believe it to this day, the baby is in his 3rd year of college now!

  • I don't like to use the word "accident" but......
    Babies #1, 3 AND #4 were "oooops" babies. My 2nd baby was the only "planned" baby

  • honestly, #3 was the only planned baby we had, we tried for 18 months to get pregnant with her. #4 was a complete surprise

  • My 3rd pregnancy was a surprise but unfortunately that ended in a miscarriage. After that we did plan and have a baby #3 and he was the absolute last one.
