Is 3 the Magic Number???

I feel like everyone I know has three kids or are about to have their third. Even those who have one of each (so they arent trying to get that specific gender).

I dont know why but it surprises me that everyone seems to want three kids... Is three the magic number??? We are about to have our second and trying to decide if we are done or want just one more. We are worried having a third would be super expensive and take away from the other two kids. 

Am I missing the advantage to that third child??

Everyone feels differently about it. I love having three and can't wait to have another one. My SIL has made comments she wishes they had stopped at two. She finds it hard with three children.

It really comes down to what you guys want.

I always wanted 3 or 4... but out of 6 pregnancies, I only ended up with 2. (I had 4 miscarriages).

I only wanted two, and almost everyone in my family growing up had just two. All my cousins are two sibling groups, and I only have one sister. I ended up with twins one of pregnancies so by chance I had 3 kids. It does seem like more people have 3 kids that I know of these days, but it could be because I have 3 I notice it more.

I have two and we are adopting at least one more...but we might adopt more later. It's not a magic number for us.
