I had always wanted a big family - 4 kids like I had in my family. My husband didn't want that many kids so we agreed on two. After our daughter was born we both decided that having a baby was more work than we imagined, especially since we are both in out late 30s and our closest family is 10 hours away, so we decided to stick with one. Recently several friends have had babies or are trying desperately to get pregnant again & I wonder if there is something wrong with me for not wanting another. I tell myself all of the good things about having an only child but the next thing I know I feel like a wimp for not wanting another. I love my daughter & can't imagine life without her but can't imagine doing it all again. Does anyone else feel this way??
