Can't believe I am here.

Guess I should make my own thread instead of hijacking Jorgiegirl's.

I have two beautiful girls ages 2.5 and (almost) 15 months. My two year old is quite the handful, but very smart and fiercely independent and clingy at the same time. My baby is an absolute joy, she is a little cuddle bug and so darn cute I can hardly stand it. I am not 100% sold on a third, but my hubs seems to really want to give it a go. We discussed it the other night and he wants to wait until we get out of debt from our recent move to a bigger house (which meant new furniture, etc). I want to wait until my youngest is 2 and I have been back to work for a while. So probably keeping the IUD in place until 2013. I go back and forth every single day, but I think I would regret not having another. I LOVE being pregnant and I am excited about that and giving birth, not over the moon about the newborn stage for a third time. ;)(Remind me of that when I am *****ing about a sore pelvis or ridiculous weight gain)

Welcome!!! Isn't two girls the best? Smile Yeah, the journey to a third baby is not an easy one. I found a website that really clarified things for me and made me realize that I am more on the 'yes' side of the fence. havingthreekids.com lol. Funny, I know but you might like her articles and the forums, while closed, have lots of interesting conversations that rang so true for me.

I hope you find an answer that your heart is at peace with! Until then, it's nice to have others in the same boat!!

Welcome!

There are a lot of us here with 2 thinking of 3. I totally subscribe to the mindset of "just do it". I figure you won't regret having that baby once he/she has arrived. Smile

The newborn phase is tough and I don't look forward to parts of that either but I always remind myself of how quickly that time passes. I more get hung up about pondering another pregnancy....it's really not a fun time for me and not something I look forward to.

I have to agree with Lynn, though that newborn phase is no picnic, the pregnancy worries me more. I hate M/S!
