I always wanted another child, but after having my son 16 wks early (at 1lb 10oz) my husband and I decided we weren't ready yet. Our relationship wasn't stable either. So, we waited. Once I turned 30, I figured that was the end, and I didn't consider it much after that. However, recently, the subject has come again from my husband (same one!) and I was in shock for several weeks. I am 37 years old now and am finding myself seriously considering it, but don't know how it will work exactly. We've now been married nearly 19 yrs, and although we've had some serious ups and downs, we seem to finally be that stable married couple.
I have a brother 12 yrs younger than me and I absolutely adored him. But, we didn't have the close sibling bond that my sister and I have (she is only 4 yrs younger).
Anyway - Hubby says ultimately it's up to me and he's ok either way. I am currently using the morena contraception that is good for another 2+ yrs, so it's not like it can happen tomorrow. But, I want to be as prepared as possible no matter what decision I make...
I suppose on the positive side, both children would have the opportunity to be 'only' children.
