I think I want a 3rd child but I keep going back and forth with
"Can We/I handle it?"
"Will it feel crowded"
"Will I lose my mind?"
Sometimes I see mothers with 3 or 4 kids and I instantly think OMG thats too much. But I keep going back to wanting a 3rd child. I have a boy and a girl already
I have 7 children, my last son sadly didn't make it but I am now pregnant with my 8th. I think that as long as you can afford your children and that your are not relying on other people financial and are not always asking people to babysit for you then you should have as many as you want. I have one son from my first marriage and he is going to be 18 next week. There is a 6 year age difference between him and my next. But the rest of my children are pretty close in age and the way my family worked out was my 2nd and 3rd are both boys and they are 17 months apart. They are always together and have a close bond. My 4th and 5th were both girls and they are almost 3 years apart but they have a close bond and are always together too. My 6th is a boy. I felt bad that he would not have a sibling close in his age to have the bond that the others have so we decided to have another. My 7th was a beautiful baby boy.

He sadly died from SIDS when he was 27 days old. We chose to try again so that my youngest would have that bond also. For me going from 2 to 3 was the hardest, but after that it hasn't been that hard. They always have someone to do stuff with. We still do a lot of stuff as a large family. We take family vacations every year and still go out to dinner. I participate in my kids school activities. It is all really about what you think you can handle.
