Im 22 years old. This is the first time in years that I'm writing. I'm having a very hard time expressing myself. I've been married for 4 years now and have a beautiful 2 year old son, but hes not behaving. I can't take him out to play or just go to the groceries without having him screaming and crying all the time. My husband is pressuring me to have another baby. Of course i want my son to have a sibling thats the most amazing gift i could ever give my son, but my life is very complicated right now. im not happy with how things are going with my life and im just not ready to have another baby because of that and i feel like i still have so much more to learn about children. its not easy. especially when ive left my friends and my family to move to another country on the other side of the globe. its not easy. im still dealing with alot of emotions inside of me. Am I being selfish for not wanting to have another baby right now?

NO! Abseloutly not! You need to take care of yourself FIRST! In fact, I'd almost go so far as to say your little boy might be acting out because he can sense some tension and stress coming from you! He doesn't know how to express himself either- he's only 2. So instead of saying "Mommy, it's making me sad that you don't seem to be as happy as I know you can be!"- he might be acting out- the screaming and crying.

Take him to the doctor to make sure everything's alright with him, and then get to work on yourself. Don't let your husband pressure you. Have an honest talk with him and you should even feel comfortable enough to ask him for help sorting things out. Even if it just means him leaving you alone about having another baby for a while! :D

Good luck:D
