3 is magic?

I just joined this forum, first time I've ever joined nothing like this. But sometimes I have some questions and wonder if I am alone with some of the experiences we go thru. 

My first thought: what's everyone's thought on having a 3rd baby?? We have 2 girls ages 3 and 17m. I'm 30 now. Both my husband and I are truly on the fence and just don't know If we would regret it. 

We both work full time out of the home as well.

I have 3 but not quite planned that way. My 2nd pregnancy was with twins. I had them when I was 30. . Only planned on having two but maybe a 3rd. I would have went up to age 33-34 if I wanted to get pregnant again. I don't think anyone can answer that but you and your husband. I like having 3. They keep us busy but it's fun.

We only have 2. And we're done I think.

Well, how many kids you should have is really none of our business. That's quite a personal subject that we really can't help you with.

That being said, dh and I have 1 together and he has 4 from his first marriage. 1 is in the military, 1 in college, and 2 in high school. I love them all, but I would quite honestly be perfectly happy with just 1.

I have 3. But only you & your DH can make that decision. Good luck!

That's only a decision you two can make. :)


We only have one and we're completely content.

I have 2 and am undecided if well add another. I would but SO isn't sure. Our house is small and finances are tight.
Having babies is a tough decision

I agree with the3Rs', good luck

Quoting the3Rs:

There is no perfect number of children to have.  I have three but you will have to decide what is best for you.

I have 5 kids so the only thing I can tell you is- when ex & I had #3 we already had one boy & one girl. #3 was a girl. So we tried again for another boy so we could have 2 & 2. #4 was a boy. Then we got pregnant again 6 years later & have another boy. 

I'm actually partial to the boys though. LOL
