I have 4 children and I never thought I would feel this way about my baby turning 1. My husband and I have decided for Sydni to be our last baby. Now that she is almost 1 I cry every time I think about it. I love being pregnant, I love having babies, I love being a mother, and I love breastfeeding. Why am I taking this so hard?! I did NOT get my tubes tied. I did get a mirena IUD so I guess that doesn’t totally close the door but my other kids are each less than 2 years apart. I know we don’t have room for anymore people at our home now. Also we have 3 girls and 1 boy, our boy is adopted, and my husband is the last male in his family to pass on his name…Yes Justus has his last name but not his DNA. I kind of want to keep trying until we get our boy but I know that could give us 10 or more kids still w/out having a boy of our own. I just don’t know how to deal with this. Why am I feeling this way?

if you like being pregnant but are without the means of space for another child what do you and your husband think of you carring a child for someone else artificial insemination. I wouldnt be able to do it myself for multiple reason nothing about pregnancy made me happy, and I doubt Id be able to give the child back to its rightful parents but maybe this would work for you.

Ahh so its mainly space then? I know money is tight everywhere, but is there any chance of adding on to your home? My sister in law had the same type of thing when her "baby" started kindergarten and she got a pocket puppy. I don't think it completely filled the void, but I know she was happier after that.

My husband knows how I feel. The man thing is that our home isnt big enough for another child. We have a 3 bedroom home right now and we are already tight on space for the 6 of us. We dont have the money to move b/c we are living in my grandma's house since she passed away almost 2 years ago. I think it is just hitting me b/c my baby is almost 1 so she wont be a 'baby' anymore.

I don't know why your feeling that way, but I hope you find a way to be happy about your decision. Well or a way to change it. :) Have you talked to your husband about how your feeling? What was his reaction?
