I am on the pill but missed two periods so thought there was a possibility I was pregnant (I admit to being late taking it once or twice!). BUT I ran out to buy a test and when I got home and before I could even do the test my period came! typical!

Anyway I already have three children aged 5,2 (nearly 3) and 7.5 months.Two girls, one boy. The silly thing is that now I am so disappointed even though I know i should be happy with what I have at leats for now!.
My husband was also strangley dissapointed!

I keep thinking of all the reasons not to have another baby, we have three bedrooms our two will have to share and the baby would have to share with either two girls or the boy depending what it is!. Money is ok but obviosuly the more you have the more expesive it is! and the main thing other people reaction to it!

but this other part of me keeps thinking how lovely it is having all the bustle and all the little people around and how another one wold be even better!!

I dont know what I am expecting anyone to say I just need to know I am not alone in being torn like this!

I think that this being the larger families topic you can rest assured that you are not alone in how you are feeling

If you feel like that then just go for it. Particularly since you both feel similarly.

Who cares about what other people think??

I only have 2 atm and find them a handful, DD (youngest) is a high maintenance baby but it doesn't seem to be putting us off the thought of more!

Were you excited or scared when you thought you were pg?

If you both want it go for it and enjoy

at first I was horrified but then pretty excited. My second baby was also "difficult" he was 5 weeks early and seemed so tiny he also had reflux so spent most of his time being sick and screaming. My third luckily has been the most easy going baby i know so it has balanced out nicely .

I think we probably will have another in the near future. Not straight away but in the next year or two anyway!

Thank you for saying that aftera challenging 2nd your third wasn't too bad - you give me hope grin

About 3 months ago, I had a very convincing false alarm, but I don't get positive tests even when I am PG, so had to wait for a scan when AF was 3 weeks late. DH and I were so disappointed that I wasn't PG, so now we're trying for #4 Our others are 8, 7 and 4
Maybe you are mad for wanting another, but if you are, so are an awful lot of others wink

I know exactly how you feel. I have recently changed pill and thought I might have been pg this month. Have done two tests, both negative, and now I'm even broodier than ever! I'm even dreaming about babies. DH doesn't want any more so unless my contraception fails I wont be having any more sad
