I think we are having another baby and I am scared out of my mind. I am mostly worried about what my family will think.

I am glad to hear that he is excited and supportive. I'll be praying for you and your family!

Oh, my husband is a source of tremendous strength for me. He is very supportive and helpful. He is a bit apprehensive but more because of the physical and financial responsibility of an additional baby with only one source of income. However, he says he is filled with joy to see his family growing considering he is an only child. He always says that it is a sin for a child to be the only one in the home so he feels contented to have a relatively 'big' family. We did used ti talk about having 4 children as childhood sweethearts but i suppose we didnt see it happening so soon. And qe just need to apply more fiscal discipline, which we a prepared to do. And God has blessed him with a relatively stable and well paid job.

Do try not to let your family and the culture around you get you down. How does your husband feel about it? I think it is most important that you and your husband are communicating your feelings with each other. Is he feeling stressed about it?

The fact that I chose not to work but to stay home with my children, my relatives are somewhat worried that our family will suffer financially or that my husband will abandon me and i will be left alone with the children.

I am a Jamaican and in my country it is considered weird for a modern woman to have more than two children unless you are poor and uneducated. For such a woman her only chance of providing for her family is a man- breadwinner. Usually she has short love relations with men. They get her pregnant then they leave her.

There is 15 months between my youngest two. Having a new born at home while pregnant was a bit of a tiring struggle. But all worth it in the end. I found it easier to have them closer together as to the oldest and the middle having a 3.5 year age difference.
Stay strong. Don't worry about what your family thinks. You are mom and to them that's all that matters.

If you are not wanting another baby then use birth control.
Why are you worried about what your family think? It's your life and you chose how you want to live it.
