  • Sounds like a good heart to heart talk is needed between you and your dh. Explain to him your reasons for not wanting another baby at this point. Sit together and write down the pros and cons of having a new baby:
    A gift of you for both of you =)


    Afraid of another eptopic pregnancy. (?)

  • Tell him that you DO want more kids, but you'd like to wait a few months. My husband and I went through this. I was ready, he wasn't sure. So we waited 3 months, then talked about it again. I was still ready & he was finally ready. You don't have to wait 3 months... maybe just ask him if you can talk about it again next month... or whatever you'd feel comfortable with. It's not like the idea is off the table... you just need a little time.
