TTC #3 (maybe?)

I am 22 I have a 3yr old DD and a 2 yr old DS. I lost a baby at the beginning of the year at 12wks pregnant. We weren't planning on having a 3rd but It happened...Since the M/C I have been on BC and my husband and I have been talking seriously about having baby #3. He actually wants like 5 or 6 kids, I am not sure how many I want but I do know that I would like to have another baby.

Here is my question.......How many moms my age have 3 kids? I will be 23 by the time of delivery, maybe 24 if it takes a while to get pregnant.

AND how many people have 3 kids under 5yrs old? do you enjoy it? What are your biggest challanges and your biggest rewards?

I will give you a bump lol. By the the time I was 26 I had three babies. My oldest and youngest are 5y 9d apart, and my middle baby and youngest baby are 3y 8m 1d apart. I loved the age difference between my oldest and middle baby and I wished my last was born sooner but I have learned to love the age difference

I am 24 expecting #3 in February. I'm not scared at all about the transition.  My oldest is 3.5 years old lol. So I will have 3 kids just shy of under 4 years.

I had a friend who had all four of her babies by age 21. I don't think I want no more than 2 babies. I want to be able to give them.. not only all they need but also all they want. We arent rich by any means.. So i want to know they will always have all they need/want.

But if you and your dh are set on having 5 or 6 babies... then get to it... GL ON TTC.

Thank you! As it is right now I am more comfortable with just having 3, more than that would be a blessing however it is not in my planning.....but probably is in my husband's. I'll just take one TTC at a time lol.

Quoting chrtymcdnl:
