I think that I want one more. Dh wanted one more too but now he keeps saying how hard it is with 3 he can't imagine having a 4th.
My Dh is happy with 3 but he has told me that we can start trying for number 4 when Riley turns 1, but I want to start trying sooner. I think his biggest hang up is a concern with job stability and that is also a big concern for me. I would prefer to start trying as soon as there are signs that his employers business is picking up. I just keep thinking that with us having 3 kids pretty close in age that I don't want to have a 4th being far apart. Is that a silly reason? I just would feel awful if 3 kids are close in age and good friends and #4 becomes an outsider becuz of an age gap.
Also noteworthy is the fact that the twins were conceived IVF and Riley was a huge surprise. I'm not sure how difficult it will be to get PG again.

Nope not silly at all, we want these two close together then a nice gap so I can go to college but then like I said once our Princess hits 5 / 6 years old we'd like another two with this type of an age gap
How many children are you planning to have? I had planned to have 3
Is it a joint choice or do you & your partner disagree when it comes to how many / last one? DJ pretty much decided that we were done after 2.
I wanted 5 but stuart compromised on 4.. he wanted just 3 though, we are deffinatly having one more but after that im not sure if we will have our 4th or not, it depends really on what its like with 3 kids running around.
