same here. have just accidentally on purpose TTC no. 3 and waiting to find out the result. if it's BFN will be gutted - so that's my answer. if someone gave you newborn DC3 tomorrow how would you feel?

I have 3 and it's lovely smile

Bloody hard work but lovely!

It's harder finding babysitters, especially for the non-sleeping hours as 3 is a lot for a non-parent to cope with. If you need/want to work childcare for 3 is prohibitively expensive - I'm glad mine are a bit spaced out.

Accommodating the differing needs of 3 can be hard.

It gets expensive - new shoes for all 3 is the best part of 100 quid. Many places are set up for the 'traditional' 2 adults 2 children family scenario.

But I wouldn't change it for the world - I love seeing my girls all together smile

Yay. I've got 3 and today, it's good.

it's very tempting.

Although the 2 i have are 4 and 6, so would be a bit of a gap, between them and number 3.

house isn't big enough but is extendable and we can extend the mortgage to do this.

only problem I've found with three is that now I'm thinking..

...would four be so bad??


...sort of like pints of lager- once you go over the two, it's difficult to stop wink

Yes, yes, go for it. I wish I'd had 4 or 5, but too late now.
