A Third

Maybe I'm crazy but I always think about another baby, a third. Once Paige was born I said minutes later that I wanted another one. We got pregnant with Parker when Paige was 16 months old. Parker is just about to turn 15 months, if we followed the same pattern I'd be pregnant again in just over a month. The decision to have a second was simple, it seemed like it was just meant to be. We didn't have to try very hard to conceive unlike Paige who took us 16 months, spooky!

Once Parker was born it took me a little while longer to want another, 4 days infact! Haha. I just love having a babies, I love seeing them together, I love pregnancy (once the sickness passes). I've always wanted a big family, 4/5/6 children. But life isn't that simple. If we had a third we'd need a bigger car and a bigger house (eventually). A third seems like such a huge jump. I feel like it's pretty normal to have two children. Loads of things are for family of fours. When people ask if we are going to have another and I say maybe they look at me like I'm mad. They mention how we already have one of each, why would we want/need another.

I don't feel like our family is quite complete, will I ever? I love both Paige and Parker so much. If we weren't blessed with another baby I would be more than happy to concentrate on them two and be the best mummy I could be. I'd feel sad knowing that I would of already experienced my last pregnancy and had my last birth experience though.

I didn't know when the right time to have Parker was but it happened perfectly. I don't know if there will ever be a right time for a third but if there is I'll welcome it with open arms.


If Paige got her way she'd have 5 brothers and sister's. She is such a good big sister and Parker would be the best big brother.

So will we have a third?

Lets see what the future holds.

Do you have three children? Was the descion easy? Did you decide against having a third?

  1. We have three and it was an easy decision for us, we've always wanted a big family. Now the tricky one for us is how many more!!!

  2. I don't think there is ever the perfect time. We always said two, we have two but recently I've been thinking about a third although I'm unsure it will ever happen x

  3. My husband wants another one but i am not keen on it i also don't feel broody at all. I am finding having 2 children still very hard work even though MM is already 18 month so i don't think its fair to put another one in the mix and me loosing my marbles completely. I think 4 is a great number which works for us!

  4. I have three children I always said I wanted three and wanted two close together which I got as my little two are only 14 month apart. My son has just turned one and already my partner wants a forth as he is one of four but I'm not so sure. Like you I feel sad if I have experienced my last pregnancy and don't feel like my family is complete but we would need bigger house and car so we will see. Xx

    1. Sometimes there are a lot of things which you have to think about. It isn't just as simple as having one more x

  5. I always thought I'd like three but now I'm even having to convince myself to even go for the second!! I think it's the whole pregnancy thing that puts me off! Xx

  6. I have a feeling you will be announcing before the year is out.... I cant decide if we will anymore, I don't feel like we quite got the gap right for our two, but they are fine, and that's just me. I don't actually feel like I want anymore but I don't feel right, like you said, already have experienced my last pregnancy and birth. But if we did, it would be a bigger gap, like 5/6 years, and then I think, but my two will be all grown up and independent and at school and I can get a job again etc, to then go back and start again just doesn't seem right to me. Plus the other half is dead set on our two. I wouldn't ever say "never", I just can't make up my mind on if we are done or not... I would happily be a surrogate I think. x
