What do I do now???
Fri, 03-29-2013 - 12:46pm

I am 33 and a half years old, DS is 8 and DD is 6.  I will be 34 in November.  I have always said that I would eventually like to have one more child before I turn 35.  DH has always gone along with that plan.  In the meantime I have used a paragard IUD for contraception. I am now getting to that point where I feel like I do want that third child... and I was considering taking out my IUD.  I discussed it with DH and he asked what other forms of non hormonal BC I wanted to use.  After naming a few options I explained that they were not as effective as the paragard, and that our risk of getting pregnant would considerably increase.  Every time I bring up having another baby, he always says its not the right time.    I am fast approaching 35, and I feel Im not ready to give up just yet.  At the same time,  I dont want to pressure him into an unwanted child... What do I do?
