So, DH and I have been together for 10 years (since highschool), and married for a little over two. The push for us to finally tie the knot was that we decided we were ready to start a family. We got married, I got pregnant, and we sold our condo and bought a nice big house to start our family in.
We've had a ton of talks over the last 10 years about how we wanted our "family" to be, and it was always 2 kids, close in age. We bought a 4 bedroom house, so that there would be a "room for each kid, and a guest room". Now, I'm going back to work in 2 1/2 months at the end of my maternity leave, and the plan was always that I got back and we start trying for baby #2 in Sept., and then after #2 arrives, I would stay home for good.
Now, DH says he doesn't want to have another baby, and his reasoning is that our son is too good, he doesn't want to risk having a "bad" baby, or make our son share with a sibling when he's older.
I just don't get it. I was an only child and hated it, and DH has 3 siblings and is really close to his 2 brothers, kinda close with his sister. I just don't understand how this changed. He expects me to be fine with it, but I'm not. I want to be pregnant again, I've always wanted at least a couple of kids. I don't think I could ever leave DH, but honestly, this decision makes me wonder. I just don't know how many sacrifices I can keep making for him (a looooong post for another).
Jeesh, sorry this is so long.
