So we have a 2.5 year old boy, and 6 month old twin girls. I keep debating whether were done. Part of me wabts to say yes, so tgat I can get rid of baby stuff as the girls outgrow it, for financial reasons (extra curriculars for 4 kids and travelling mostly), for the effects on my body, and for fear of having another set of twins. However, when I think of being done, I get sad. I try to get rid of some baby stuff, and I cant. I love being pregnant, i love the baby stage, and id live anotger so that its not always my son annnd the twins. I think I also feel like this because I didnt expect to have 3 kids before the age of 30…. and within like 2 years. So I feel like it happened too fast. Id ideally like to wait a few years and have one more. Am i being crazy?? Is 4 kids just way too many? Would you chance having another set of twins? Ppl say it can happen…. but will it really??

NMom17 : give yourself more time to decide – the twins are still really young.
And yes you could get twins again. Unlikely but not impossible. My friend has 2 sets of twins and my great great aunt had 4 sets.

Haha I think you posted something similar before and I’ll probably say something similar here to what I said before!
I loved being pregnant too and as someone’s who’s almost certain we’re one and done, I do get sad sometimes thinking about how I’ll never feel those little kicks or have those special months of growing a baby. Hell, LO was a difficult baby, and I even look back at pics and videos where he’s nothing but rolls and miss that too! But then I think that even if I had a second, that pregnancy wouldn’t be forever and that baby’s rolls wouldn’t be forever. Unless you’re perpetually pregnant and perpetually have a little baby, it will come to an end at some point for everyone.

NMom17 : Your babies are only six months old, why push yourself to make this decision now when you don’t have to? Store the baby things, once you are chasing three toddlers around the decision may be easier. There is no right answer, just what is right for you and your family at the time.

Sounds like you should wait a few years and you’ll be ready for your next! Just store away the baby stuff for now.

You really don’t need to make this decision right now. So don’t stress yourself out over it!
You’ve got two infants and a young child on your plate already. That’s more than enough to worry about.
I’d say get a reliable form of birth control if you don’t already and give yourself until the girls are at least 1 before even thinking about it again. Keep your baby stuff for now – you can always sell or give it away later on down the road.

Are you twins identical or fraternal? Because only fraternal would mean your chances are higher for having another set (but I’m sure you know that!)

NMom17 : No matter how old you are, how many children you have, etc, it will always be sad when you realize you have your last. Your girls are only 6 mos, just store the baby things away for now. You have a lot of time to think about more children.. There is no time frame. My sister and I are 10 years apart, she is my best friend.
