My son is nearly 3. I love being a mom very much. I have wanted another one since he was around a year; it's tough but so rewarding. I grew up as an only and think it would be nice to have a sibling for him. My husband is 6 years older than myself (I'm nearly 39). My husband worries about money and I'm working part-time and trying to find something more permanent. I hate how close-minded he is when I want another so passionately. It's been hard. Has anyone else gone through this? I can't find a support group so I'm here.

Thanks for replying Marissa,



You are so young and have plenty of time. But I know it's tough. I'm nearly 40 and my clock is ticking : ( I am just trying to enjoy my sweet pea; he's growing too fast (3 in November!).



Take care! : )

mine is the same way. my son is 2yrs old and i have been wanting another and my fiancee doesn't it seems. he keeps telling me not right now maybe later on down the road but i'm afraid that later on down the road he just won't want another child. he has the same issues it sounds as your husband money. i have a full time job and so does my fiancee but sometimes we still have a hard time making it work. i'm only 21 but love so much being a mother even if it meant sacrifcing my teenage and so on years. my fiancee is 30 but at times it just seems he doesn't want to settle down for anymore children and it hurts. i know what you are feeling!
