I have a 6 month old son and we have been leaning towards having one child. I thought I was ok with this decision so I whole heartedly got my maternity clothes prepped to be consigned. I didn't realize how emotional an experience it would be to get rid of these clothes. Anyone else go through this? Logistically it makes sense to have one child, my husband is 38, I'm 27, quit my corporate job, am now a SAHM. My husband is perfectly fine with one. I worked full time, was a full time student while I was pregnant and so maybe I'm just bored now? I had always pictured my self with two but love the freedom of having just one child to take care of and definitely enjoy having time to myself and activities sans child. I guess I am scared that 1) My son will be lonely being an only and 2) I will have some major urge 7 years from now really wanting another but it will be too late. Did anyone ever have any of these feelings? Any young moms who chose to stop at one?
