How do I know when I'm ready for another child?
Choosing to have another child is big decision no one ultimately decides besides you and your partner. What helped you through the process of deciding whether or not to have another child?
when the last one is potty trained. :-)
when your other baby can walk and understand what your saying. i want another baby prefably a boy but i gotta get my baby to walk and talk first lol
when God chooses that time.
we both want two. I said if I'm meant to be pregnant with another child then ok. If not, he is fine with the one girl we have.
I don't think you are ever 100% certain if you are ready to have another child. You can always wait to be a bit more secure financially, or wait until your older child is a bit more mature... But bottom line is that it will be difficult no matter when... and a blessing, too!
My son is 33 months old and i m ready for another child, but my husband says NO.
I dont know how to convince him.
How'd be the best way to make him know that my olde one needs a brother or sister, and we need one more to complete the family?
HELP, PLEASE!!!!! I dont want that my son gets to big before having a mate.
I have 2 children now...37 months and 19 months. Oldest is a girl and youngest is a boy. Everyone says why would you want another one? You have the perfect family, a boy and a girl. I don't feel the same way. I grew up the middle of 5 children and I loved having 2 brothers and 2 sisters. My hubby wants another one...eventually...but eventually isn't what I want...I want one now...I love that my 2 children are so close in age and I'm still so young I have the energy to take care of them...I keep trying to tell him if I get pregnant now our oldest will be 2 months shy of 4 years old and our youngest will be almost 2 1/2 by the time the new baby would be born. Help! How do I get him to want another one now?!
Grace: it's not at all easy to decide together. At least not for me. Going into the marriage, I wanted 4 and hubby wanted 2. We agreed on 3 as a compromise. However, since we've had #2, our second boy, he has made it clear that he really isn't interested in having any more. He knows I've always dreamed of having a girl and that 2 is not a complete family to me. He knows that if we don't try one more time for a girl (if we have another boy I would be fine with that) it will drive me crazy and I'll always wonder if I could've gotten my baby girl. I just feel like there is a piece of my family missing and it hurts me terribly. I can't force him to have another baby. Don't know what to do except pray.
My husband and I have not made a mutual decision he thinks we should be on miracle number 3 by now and in an ideal world we would be. We haven't had a second child yet because I can't bare the repeat of my first pregnancy with him and taking care of our daughter by myself and being called lazy and having my child raising criticized. I've made it very clear that we will not have any more children until he learns to do more than just pay the bills. He needs to treat me and the children better than he does currently. If I wanted to raise our daughter alone, I never would have married him and he could just pay child support and have visitation which is pretty much how it's been the last three years. I'm sure it's much easier to make a mutual decision for other couples/ families.
