I think you need to sit down and talk to your husband about how you feel. If you are stressed over debts now another baby is only going to make the situation worse and could potentially add strains to your marriage. There is a 4 year age difference between my two kids because I wanted to be able to stay out of work under FMLA for the whole time but wanted to make financially we weren't strained.
