i have a set of identical twin girls that are almost 4.. they were born with absolutly no complications and i was very thanful for that.. almost 3 years exactly i delivered my son who i was not so lucky with.. he was born with short bowel syndrom and we are currently waiting for a transplant.. me and my husband have had this conversation already but i just want advise on what others think.. after the transplant is done and my son is recovered and we know hes safe i want to have another baby.. im not talking like right after hes recovered i mean in the future like 5 or 8 years down the road. i love my children and me and my husband take wonderful care of our children we have right now but sometimes when i think of having another baby ( not too often but occationally) i feel like im just being selfish and greedy but then other times i think of the large family i had growing up and i loved every minute of it.. my husbands main worry is that we will have another child like out son but drs told us that its not genetic and not something that happens offten within a family.. he dont see it as selfish he sees it at me going after my dream family and he understands and he will go along with what i want because he likes the thought of having a big family as well ( he came from a small family) i just want to know what you other ladys would do if you were in my shoes... thanks in advance for the input :)

I really dont have any advice. but i dont think your being selfish at all!! I mean you ARE waiting for your son to get better & you dont plan on rushing into it, You are not being selfish at all hun!
