I am just curious, is it ok to have kids after twins. The reason why I am asking is, I am not mentally ready for one but my kids now started asking for baby sister/brother. My husband is ok with my decision but I am not sure whether I can manage another one.. confused

It really depends on you as well. My kids have been asking me to give them a brother but for some reason I cannot get pregnant. I have been trying for two years now and I think I have accepted the fact that I am not gonna have any more kids. But for you I say I would have them close together and get it done. My girls are over six years of age and to me that is a big gap when it comes to children. But if you really do not want anymore right now than I say that is up to you. Take care and happy mylotting to you.

It's not up to your kids to decide when you are ready for more children, it's up to YOU!!! You just tell them that if you and your partner decide you're ready to have more kids, you will decide yourself. It's not your kids decision to pressure you to have more kids. Wait until the time is right for YOU!

oh yeah... they are not forcing me. Well whenever they see some baby brother or sister of their class mate, they ask me immediately "when am I going to have a baby brother/sister?" Lol... thanks for responding

You're the parent and whether to have another baby or not is a decision that you and your husband should make...not your kids. Kids always want a baby brother or sister at some point in their lives but that doesn't mean that you have to give them one. Hang tough and wait until you're ready.

How old are you twin babies? Are they over 3 years of age? If yes, then you can go for another child. I don't see any problem in it. Did you get normal delivery last time?

Oh, so you are worried about you physical condition because I don't see any problem in having another child because others are old enough to take care of themselves a little

It is OK to have kids after twins if you are healthy enough. I would think long and hard if you are ready to take on another responsibility. I could not care for more then two children and I knew it in my heart and soul so we did not have any more then our daughter and three years later our son. A lot of women have help from hubby and can handle more children and have more. I say more power to them but it was not for me.
