I feel like the thought of a third baby has been around in my head for a while now. Aria was only 2 weeks old when I started asking Warren (daily) if he'd change his mind about third. His answer was an adamant no back then and he wouldn't talk anymore about it but now he will have an honest conversation about it. Mainly throwing lots of questions at me.
Should we have a third baby? Can we afford a third baby? Would we regret a third baby? Where would a third baby sleep? How would I cope with 3 kids?
When I think about all of these questions in a practical way, it kind of puts me off having a third. It would be tight with money as we would need to move house & both get bigger cars. It's Warren's main worry about having another too.. we even sat down and worked out all the costings of moving house, getting new cars and everything. We used a car finance calculator and even getting them on finance would be tight monthly with everything else we pay.
I also do worry how I'd cope. I get so ill during pregnancy and I'd have to get Sienna to school 5 days a week and look after an energetic, curious toddler all day. They say it's only 9 months of your life but when you're so ill, those days go so slowly. I feel like I've spent the last year or two being either so ill during pregnancy or so sleep deprived & exhausted with a newborn. I'd like to just enjoy a few years with my girls feeling like 'myself'.
