I would really like another baby. We have two little girls already ages 3 and 1. Now I am thinking I want another, but my husband thinks two is enough. What do you think?

haha. I am in that same boat. My husband is just fine with two but i want more. We discussed it and said that when our youngest who is also one is the age or close to the age of our oldest it would be a good time. cus the other child will be working on potty training possibly(hopefully) and possibly in preeschool. Just make sure the age gap isnt too close is what i think. Ours are 4 and 1. we are gonna wait till our youngest is three to try for the third (which will be our last!!) good luck

You are definently not crazy. I have a 4,3, and 7week old. My husband wanted to stop at two kids, I wanted more. We ended up fighting about it alot...in the end I left the decision up to him. I told him I'm always going to want another one, so when he was ready to stop having kids it would be up to him, in the meantime all birthcontrol is his resposibility!

I just commented on another mom's post that was similar...and I said it's a vicious cycle. No matter how bad pregnancy or labor or the infant stage was for you, you'll eventually want another one...or at least entertain the idea. At least that's how it's been for me. I had one, said NO MORE...then married my husband and gained a step-daughter, then had a 2nd of my own, and I've learned that saying FOR SURE yes or no is impossible! Some days I am SO OVER having more kids (those would be the days that my 2m old is really fussy and my 3 y.o. won't follow directions)...but then I think about how I'm gonna miss these stages when they're 4 and 7 or older. I'm already sad that my 3 y.o. has almost grown out of "baby talk" words (you know, the funny ways they pronounce things...she almost talks like a completely normal person now...sniff sniff) and my baby is moving on to 3-6 size clothing! So, like everyone else says, talk about it with your husband, discuss your reasons for wanting more & his for not, and let time and your hearts decide what is best for your situation. LOL...and if you come back on here saying that your husband doesn't want to have more 'cause he's afraid of having another girl, we can start our "sperm spinning for a boy savings plans" together! Ha ha ha...and our husbands can rant to each other about living in "a sea of estrogen"!! My husband is scared to have more kids since we have 3 girls...so he's said that the only way he'll do it again is if we can have his sperm separated to increase our chances of having a boy. Guess he's a little intimidated by so many females in one house! Good luck...!

I have two kids ages 3 and 8. Although right now thats it for me, everytime I see a baby I want one. Ive been told that we are always going to want another one... And its true.

Maybe waiting a year or so more to help you guys think. Both of you have to make the decision to want one.

I don't think you're crazy at all. I have a 10 year old son and an 8 year old step son and 6 year old step daughter. They all live with my husband and I. I would love at least one more... maybe 2. I love big families.

I think it depends on you and your situation I have a boy and a girl and every one says that I have what everyone else wants but I want 1-2 more. Sit your husband down and explain why you want another one and why he doesn't it will help to see where you stand

I reckon talk to your husband about it more and see if you can change his mind or at least find out what he wants and where he is coming from
