I honestly don't know.

I always knew I didn't want just one. Dh wanted a close age gap because he was the youngest by years and didn't want that for our children. We had ds 23 months after Dd was born and that was fine.

We then began to toy with the idea of a 3rd as we both agreed on 3 but then we started really properly thinking not just fantasy thinking.

We thought about school, prices of uniforms, money, holidays, days out, time, bedrooms, possible disabilities for future children and decided in the end to stick with two.

It hurt. And sometimes it still does but I know it's the right choice

we would like 3 but we also thought about the reality of money and housing and stuff. I originally wanted to wait till ds was at school or at least nursery bit seeing people with bumps and babies who are a few days old making me want another one already.

Knew when ds was one. Always assumed we would have another, and felt right after a year. Started to consider third when second child was three- it took longer to come round to the idea with two toddlers in the house! Never did go for number three sad
