Any stay at home mothers out there with one child?

Feeling a little stuck. Left work to raise my DD and had an idea of having more at the time but now I just don't. Health and Finances are the two major reasons why. It's not really possible to return to work full time at this point. Am I doing something wrong? I love being with my DD even though it can make the days a little long.

Thanks for this. I am content. It's the part where my husband wants another and I feel like I'm letting him down... and society tells us two is best. I feel guilty. Yes people should just keep their comments to themselves.

Thanks so much for your reply. Yes getting out has been key to our happiness! We go out and do something every day. We belong to the local Y. I guess I just feel really self conscious over only having one. DD will be three this month. And as far as I can see, I am like the only SAHM with just one at this age. My DH want another but I have a challenging medical background which involved an autoimmune disease and anxiety and depression.
