I feel like my family is very comfortable and we are in a great routine now...but....I can't close the door on having one more. A part of me doesn't know *how* we would manage with 3, especially if we started trying soon. It would add a whole new dimension to our lives. I don't think it would be feasible for me to work, which would mean going down to one income. Could we do it? I'm sure we could...we would just have to be creative. Then there's the thought of, would I want to give up my career totally....at least for a few years??? Yes and no...it scares me a little. A part of me wants to and the other part is scared to! In a perfect world, I would probably wait another couple years and try for one more...but I'm 36 and took forever to get prego with #2. So, I think I hear my clock ticking!
Anybody else sort of have the baby fever but don't know how it would tip the apple cart???
We definitely want more kids. I don't feel done. DH does too, but we worry a little about having another child like my middle daughter who has some fairly serious behavioral issues... I think for me I don't want to look back in 5 or 10 years and regret it or continually feel like someone is missing, ya know?
Yes. We said we were done after dd2 but couldn't bring ourselves to make it permanent. When shewas a bit over a year we knew our family was not complete. With ds we know we're done - we feel a great peace with the decision we never really had with dd2 and hubby got snipped
