Anyone have success getting thru the "I want a second child, I dont" Debate?

Hello - I am on a mission. I want to have a second child. I have a wonderful little girl who is 4 right now. My husband and I can not agree on having a second. He is done. I am not. I am on a search to find someone who got through this debate and did not have the baby...And not only did they not have the second baby, but they are happy about it.

I can only find personal stories where the husband caves and has the second child or where the mom never really gets over that yearn to have a larger family. Is there a mom out there who really wanted a second child and never got it (aside from fertility issues or health issues) who is genuinely happy and unresentful of their husband for saying "NO".

It is tearing me up that he is not budging on his opinion, so I have to budge on mine if we are going to keep the little family we have in tact.

Tell me there is someone out there in that position who got through it with success!?

You might find what you are looking for on the Mothers of Only Children board.

I have personally only a positive expereince raising an only child who is a happy kid, well-rounded, involved in sports and activities, plays with the neighborhood kids, is very close in age and location to his cousins. We are a very happy and content family of 3. Good luck to you.
