I had twins first pregnancy. 5 years later I decided ‘that’s it’ I want another baby. I could not believe the reactions from family I received! My friends were all saying yah go for it! But my family were less impressed. I received many comments along with, ‘why do you need another?’ ‘oh but you’ve already got two healthy kids’ ‘what if you have twins again?’ ‘The timings so wrong with kinder runs’ ‘how will you have the energy’… I was shocked with all the negativity so I actually googled it and found many other mums out there that have received the same criticism over the third child! I still don’t think I understand it but I was kind of relieved to hear I wasn’t alone. Baby # 3 is now 15 months and loved by all of course but still interesting to see how many were against his creation.
