Hi I am Laura...I have a DD Katie who will be 4 in a few days (!) She is the light of my life. I really reallly want to have another child, but my husband is extremely hesistant...he says it's not an option right now, due to financial/economic reasons. I am 36 next month...my bio clock is running out. I am sad and depressed. Lots of my friends already have 2 or 3, my sister is pg with #2, my other sis is ttc#1. I think i would feel different if I physcially could not conceive, but i can.

Thanks for letting me vent....I hope to come here to be able to share my support with others. I can't post much during the workday though, we are highly restricted at work (another vent)....

Laura

I have one daughter and am in my second marriage. For years I wanted another child or two but I became a single mom instead. Now that I've met the love of my life we seem to be unable to conceive so I understand your frustrations. I too see all my family popping out kid after kid and yea it hurts and I feel tremendous guilt for having an only child but I have learned to be thankful for the one that I do have. My daughter is 16 now and giving me a run for my money so I don't think that I would have energy to handle any more right now!lol

Hi Laura, I know how you feel but in my case I had to have a complete hysto after my son was born. This broke my heart. I would have loved to have more. My husband said I need to be happy with the one we have. He just doesn't understand how I feel. I have become ok with it now but it took me a while. It's hard to see y friends with 2 an 3 kids and my son I feel is not getting what he could. I feel he is lonely sometimes so I go oveboard, I am sure, with giving him my attention.

Hi Laura! I know how you feel--and my only daughter is 13! I am finally accepting the face that I won't have another and am okay with it. The older they get the more expensive they get! And the attitude, that's a whole other story. Hopefully you can keep communicating with your husband and will be able to figure out what is best for both of you. It's never really the right time. Hang in there! :)
