If we have a third it will not be until my youngest is potty trained and in pre school. He is due is May and right before he is due to arrive our dd turns 2. 2 in diapers is something I only want to go through once!

If you can financially, physically, and emotionally handle another child when your youngest is around 2 years old, then that is the time for you. If you don't feel you could handle a third child yet, then it's not the right time. No time is ever the "right time" for EVERYONE.... everyone is different. I wanted 4 kids for the longest time. I have an 18 month old daughter and I'll do good to have one more with how Abby is physically doing me lol. I know not all babies are the same, but if my second ends up being like my first, then I'll be crap out of luck with being able to handle him/her. So as of right now, one is it for a few years.

Oh gosh forever?! lol I have three children, and I love them, but 3 feels like 100 to me. I had twins though so be prepared for the possibility of two (or more!) at once. Whenever you feel it's the right time for your family go for it.

As soon as you feel comfortable is the right time. I had mine 14 months apart. it was perfect. They are close enough together that they get along great, and I can buy products that the all need in bulk  to help save money. As soon as you feel comfortable and confidant that you can handle it, that is the time that is perfect for you. Don't try placing numbers on it.

I just found out I am expecting my third. I have a 2 and a half year old, and a 16 month old (who is still nursing by the way). I say go for it if that's what you guys want. Just know it will not always be easy, but the rewards are great. They will be very close. Good luck!
