Hi

I have just had my 3rd baby!  so far everything is going great, even with next to no sleep and 2 other active boys.  But ever since baby was born i have really been thinking about having a fourth!  I never thought about it after my first two..  Is it because I am getting older?  Maybe?  Has anoyone else ever had the thoughts of going back for another so soon after ...And if so did you and how close?

I would honestly wait a few months till it all sinks in tbh. I have 3 and currently my youngest is 3 and life is much more hectic now than it was when he was first born.

Congratulations!

I'm due to have my third very soon and I'm predicting (perhaps hoping) that I will lose all of those feelings of wanting more children. I have been clucky for a very long time and thought that three would be our limit, but now I've read your post I'm wondering if I'll also want more!

You are full of feel-good hormones right now enjoying baby cuddles and soaking them up, so it's no wonder you're dreaming of more kids, but I would also advice to wait until they are at least a year old before making a decision.  wink.gif

Have to agree with this. Our 3rd is 3.5 and it is a lot busier now than when he was a baby. Newborns are easy but toddler/preschool age is a lot more work I think!

Hubby is happy either way..  Time will tell !  Good luck Shannon with your pregnancy!  You share the same name as me wink.gif
