I'll let you know in December!! Haha. Number 3(currently cooking) was a 'happy accident' and I occasionally, ok, quite often, find myself freaking out about how I'll cope. DS1 is almost 11, DS2 is 2. Obviously the big gap between them made things a bit easier in that, my oldest was in school during the day so had time to sleep when the baby slept. Won't have that luxury this time round tho. We're currently looking for a bloody people carrier for crying out loud! I'm going to miss my fast and powerful 5 series BMW when there's a frickin BUS sat on the drive! Ugh.
Yes, things change with a 3rd, bedroom sharing, driving mini buses etc. but it's going to be 3 times the love in our home smile
Hope this doesn't put you off completely!

Mmm.

I got a bfp for dc3 on Thursday.

Still deciding whether I'm insane or not grin

I got my bfp today for #3 ! I think our car will be ok ? And I'm not bothered about sharing rooms, I think the dc 's will love having another one to play with (and tease!)

How old are yours pretty?

I'm pregnant with my 5th, I didn't find going from 2 to 3 thAt bad. My oldest 3 are 13, 8 and 6.

Going from 2 to 3 is easy (compared from 1 to 2)
Never a dull moment. House full of laughter and organised chaos.

Or in our case house full of laughter, and disorganised chaos.
We have three (four with DSS).
Pros: our lovely DD, always full house, years of memories.
Cons: more arguements, being even more skint.

Going from 2 to 3 for me was an utter nightmare and I'm still not over it nearly 6 years later, sorry!

Oh god you wanted hear positives!!!

Um...they always have someone to fight with?! wink

I only have 2 kids but I'm one of 3, and we are all very close. There was always someone to gang up on me play with, despite our age differences (4 years and 5.5 years between us). Does that help? smile

Congratulations!

I'll tell you in January when number three comes along. It's a very wanted last addition to complete our family and I'm very excited about it. I'm in the mindset that one of mine is in full time school and the other one is in nursery 3 days a week so I'll still have a bit of alone time with the baby. I'm sure the first school holidays with three will be a bit of a struggle! ;)
I say if you really want another, go for it. I know I would of always regretted it if I didn't!
And like someone else said, they'll be three times the love! Xx
