The other day I got the news that one of my friends is pregnant with her third child. Since she told me I’ve been doing a lot of thinking myself about having a third. As a matter of fact a few months ago I ceased taking my birth control pills. I didn’t do it to get pregnant, or at least that’s what I told myself. BD and I have knocked around the idea before but never came to a final decision. But now I’m seriously weighing the pros and cons of having another baby. I also think it may be a biological clock thing. Today I was walking down the street and I thought, “Yes! I want to do it. I want another,” but am I thinking rationally?
Something happens when you see your second getting older and you realize that that’s it, they’re just growing up and you have to deal with it. There’s a little bit of a sadness there but there’s also this though to keep the party going. But is that a reason to have another? I can pretty much come up with a pro for every con, so what’s the deciding factor? Soon I have to come to terms with the fact that we have two kids and it’s enough, or I get pregnant and have another baby. So what’s it going to be? I think BD and I have some time to really give it some thought and figure out if it’s the right decision. But decisions like this are hard to make, they’re based on emotion and the reality of your situation. I’d love to hear from anyone who’s made either the hard decision to close up shop or to go for it.
