DH & I don't have any kids that are actually "ours." We love the children we have very much and I just feel like I would like one more to complete our family. DH isn't so sure since he has 3 kids & I have 2. (His oldest 2 live with their mom & only visit on the weekends and his youngest daughter we have half the time. My kids are with me full time.
So basically, we've got 2 kids at the house full time. We have a nicely sized house that fits all of us, so it's not space that he's worried about. I think we're mostly worried about people judging, (we already get Brady Bunch comments), I'm terrified of what my mom would say, (yes, I'm 34 & still afraid of her lol), and obviously, we would have to work out the finances. But what could I say that would help ease his fears and possibly bring him around to the idea of one more baby?

What matters most is what the 2 of you want. I'm sure your mom & any other doubters will love this baby. You're married & established & not trying to compete with the Duggars! lol :p I completely understand the need to have 1 baby that's from your union w/ your husb. I had 2 boys when we got married & he had a dau. We wanted 1 that was "ours" & I finally got my girl! :) She was the cherry on top of the family sundae. Go for it! And the trying is half the fun! :) GL!
