Hi EB world!

It’s been a few years since I’ve been on here!

We have a DS who will be 6 next month and a 4.5yr old DD.

Hubby and I would love to have baby #3. Hubby is a lot more old fashioned than me and isn’t opposed to it, but thinks we should wait until we are better off financially. This is fair enough and I agree mostly, but we’ve always been on the tighter side of things like most families. We’ve always made it work with tight finances, and we will need to buy things again (second hand will be fine for us).

I run my own fitness business so will also need to bring someone in to cover for me for a while too. So lots of planning to be done, and while I know things will be hard sometimes, I don’t feel having 3 is impossible. Both kids will have full time school next year and I have the flexibility of bringing a bub to work too (which is only an hour or two at a time for groups of clients).

Of course we want to be on the same page before anything happens, but I’d love to hear from other people who have 3 or more or 2 with one on the way and how you make things work 🤗
Did you feel it more financially? Was it more stress or does Bub mainly adjust to the existing routines?

Thanks heaps! 😘
