there is no easy solution for this one.

as a couple you need to agree. if you go behind his back he could be very mad, he could leave. or he might get over it but is that something you wanna risk? there is no meeting midle ground either if one says no and one says yes what do you do? me and my fiance agreed on the number of children before we started to have kids.

dunno what to tell you. you need to talk to him and ask him the reasons he dont want another one and think about why you do. the only thing you can do is talk about it.

hi,Narelle, thank you for a reply.It's a very hard one isn't it,i would never break my husbands trust as i love him to much.I know it's going to be hard but i will have to deal with it,i just don't know to at this moment.As i always see a baby and then come home and bug him about another one.I know i'm a nag ( ha ha) .Well i must go and attend the children.
Bye for now.

hi there Tammy,
like you i keep pestering for another one. i know exactly how you feel. i know i will be allowed another one but i keep getting told 'not yet'. like you everytime i see a baby the yearning gets more. two mums in my coffee group are now pregy with number 2. i came home and cried the other day when the second one anounced the news. i get so jelous. i dont think males will ever understand how us women yearn for a baby. my partner certainly doesnt. i hope it helps you to know there are others of us out here who are feeling like you. if you ever want to chat about it e-mail me.

hi how you going?

well i think kids are great, have how ever many you can put up with i say. i come from a big family and there is never a dull moment.
although i must say one thing, that the third child in every family is some sort of pain .
eg. my sister who is 3rd born , is a major drama queen. everything is over the top with her. and she is manic depressive.
a friend of mine in her family the 3rd born is a drugy . and my uncle thinks he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth he is so selfish.

so if u stick with the 2 kids u have im sure u will still have a great old time.

just something for u to think about.

just on a serious note, do you feel you are still missing something? is this why u would like another bub. if u have suffered from pnd do you feel you could have done better?

kids are what keep us alive and young
i bet your a great mum.

Congrats on your hubby agreeing to have another child.

My husband always wanted three and I only wanted two, but after having my second I knew I wanted another one.

So my husband didn't have to fight to get number three as we have just found out bubby 3 is on the way.

Have fun trying and good luck with your pregnancy.

My partner want another baby but i want to go study and it will take me 3 years and well i dnt want there to be a huge age gap!

Good luck with it and hope it all works out for you
