In our case it will be baby #3 because we had twins the first time around. This is a huge dilema in our house right now. Not that we're planning on trying for another any time soon (that would be RIDICULOUS). But we can't decide if we should reserve some sperm from the same annonymous donor whom we used to conceive our boys. The money for reserving it is not an issue.
The issue is that Dp thinks that using the same donor for another baby would make the donor seem more important than she wants him to be. Before we had twins, I agreed that we would use a different donor for each pregnancy. But now that we already have two kids with the same donor, I worry that a third child would wish that he/she had the same donor as her/his brothers.
Does anyone have experience with this? Do your kids have the same donor? Different donors? If they are old enough to care, do they?
