My husband and I have recently been talking about having another child. He has an older brother and believes that having a sibling is best. Me on the other hand am an only and believe that not to necessarily be true. I know that I have always wanted children and always thought that I wanted more than one. Since having my first I have only wanted him and did not want to consider having a second. Now that our son is turning 3 my husband has really been pushing for another child. I have been saying NO but I don't feel that it's fair for me to make that decision since he is an amazing father. Everytime I think about having a second child I get a knot in my stomach and feel like I can't breathe. I worry about finances (which is not necessarily a worry now) when it comes to daycare, vacations, clothes, food.....etc. I also have a very demanding job and worry that I am going to lack the preformace that I am used to producing and ultimately feel like something will give. Not working is not an option and a failing family isn't either. PLEASE HELP ME!! Any parents in the same boat or have felt the same way that now have two children. I am really needing some guidance.
