All of my life I have wanted 2-3 kids but I feel like the challenges I've seen with it all (premature delivery, no sleep for a year, medical issues w/her, her more difficult than most toddler antics etc.) has traumatized me into not wanting anymore. I am not sure how I feel about her being a single child but I can't imagine going through it "all over again". I feel like I'm the only human on this earth that feels this way too (particularly out of everyone I know) as several people just keep having kids with no reservations it seems.. so I'm feeling extra guilty and selfish.
Am I the only one? Or Is it common to maybe go through this but then one day want another or?
