Hi Becky! Sorry to hear your DH isn't on board with you trying for #2. I would suggest sitting down and having a heart-to-heart with him about your reasons for wanting another child and his reasons for NOT wanting another one. It's so important to communicate and for each person to understand where the other is coming from. If you know the things holding your DH back you can maybe provide a counter argument that will get him thinking in the other direction. Let him know the specifics of WHY you want a second child and how you think you will manage it. Discuss the potential challenges and rewards with him so that he knows you've really thought it through and it's not just a passing whim.
Good luck! I hope he comes around! :)
Hi Becky! Nice to see another cupcake momma over here!
I agree with all the PP's and say give it time. I would bring it up again in a month or two and ask him for specific reasons.
I would be devastated if my DH suddenly decided he didn't want more kids because it's something I've wanted all my life and something we agreed on a long, long time ago. I grew up as an only child and am still having issues with it (not that all onlies do, just my personal experience) and I definitely don't want Selin to be an only child. Everyone has their own reasons though and you have to do what works best for you and DH.
GL and KUP! (((HUGS)))
