My son is 8 years old. I love him dearly and think I'd be okay with having just one child, but at the same time I'd love to try for a little girl. I'm 34 and my husband is 40. He has 3 kids from his previous marriage, son 22 incl. granddaughter 2, daughter 21, and daughter 13. They live in a different state so I am not very close to them. My husband doesn't want any more children. He'll give you the long list of excuses - his main excuse always being kids are too expensive. We aren't rich by any means, but we are by no means poor either. We a normal middle class family. Part of me says, yeah, you don't want to have to deal with diaper changes, spit up, and sleepless nights again, but the other part of me says I'd like to get pregnant once more. Do any of y'all find yourselves in a similar situation? How are you dealing with it? For those of you that wanted more children, but chose not to have more, any regrets? I'd love to hear your stories.
