Hi guys, would really love some advice!
I am 23 and I have nearly 6 year old twins (boy/girl)
Yes I know I am very lucky to get one of each.... but now I’m yearning for a third.
But, myself and my husband are saving for a mortgage.
I don’t want to jeopardize our future but I don’t want the baby to be 10 years younger than the twins (by the time we get a house and have a baby they would be 10).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks 😊
It’s a very personal decision, but time is more than on your side, you’ve hopefully got at least another 15 years of potential fertility, in which case if I were you I would get mortgage in place and settle then have another. I think as your twins are 6 already, any gap is quite big anyway iyswim, so waiting a few more years won’t make a huge difference I don’t think
