Trying to conceive

We have 3 children, a girl aged 9 (going on 15), a boy aged 5 and baby boy aged 13 months. My husband and I have been thinking about trying for another baby. We have a 3 bedroomed house, one of the bedrooms which my daugher has is a small room. Should we think of moving into a 4 bedroomed house before planning our next baby or should we just go for it? If we are successful and get another boy we could have the three boys together sharing a room but if it's a girl, would have to share in the smaller room! My husband doesn't think it matters as he came from a large family and shared bedrooms. We weren't actually planning on having any more children but have been thinking that you only live once and when it's too late and we can't have any more we may regret it. My husband, who I didn't think wanted any more has just told me today that he'd actually like another 2!!

Bearing in mind how long both processes can take I'd prob be trying for both at the same time and crossing my fingers.

Thanks, I've been thinking about it over night and think rather than putting ourselves through the whole stress of moving house and all the work that comes with it, I think we'll just come up with some decent storage solutions - maybe a trip to Ikea - we've only lived here for 2 years and hubby has been working hard on the house. There's always mine and hubb's bedroom aswell, perhaps we could have a little nursery corner in our room if it's a girl eh!!
After a good night's sleep have decided it's happiness and love that's the main thing for a family and we have plenty of that so fingers crossed. I think was ovulation over last couple days as have had the (sounds gross) but slippery stretchy stuff coming away yesterday and I looked online which said it means ovulating. We had a go last night and Friday night. I'm not sure what work will say mind, I only came back from maternity leave in September

Well it all sounds promising stuff (of course there's also bunk beds to help save space). As for work I used to work with someone who had perfected the art of returning from her Mat Leave to have her 3wks refresher training, spend 1mth doing the job before going of on Mat Leave again.

Thanks for that. I bet she wasn't very popular with her work colleagues though - oh well, we have to think of ourselves and our family cause there aren't many other people/places that do
