I am in a bit of a confusing situation. I am a divorced mother of 2 and in a new relationship. My new partner has 3 children. I really really want another baby. I am in my 30s and he is in his early 40s. He had a vasectomy after his 3rd child. The whole baby situation is part of the reason I left my marriage. I have always longed for a 3rd child. I have discussed this with him and I don't feel he understands. His answer is NO doesn't matter how bad I want it or what I have to say. I find myself crying all of the time and I am absolutely heartbroken over the situation. I don't want this to be a deal breaker in our relationship as I have really fallen for him. Our kids adore each other and we have a great blended family. I just really really want this with him and I can't get the feeling out of my head. I have begged and pleaded with him and even found myself almost laying guilt trips. I am so lost and upset over this and don't know what to do! Am I selfish for leaving a relationship over this one issue? It does mean a lot to me but so does he!
