  • Well, I can tell you!!!!!!! I have a 20 month old son. I researched for years before making the choice to have a child. Waited til me and my husband were living together, then married, then financially stable, I was 29 when I had him - he had 14 hour a day colic for 5 months!!!!! then after that was done still fussed and cried ALL DAY until about 18 months old - had pooping issues and still does - lactose issues, food allergies, normal allergies, so beyond affected by teething pain you couldn't imagine! He is very hard to handle for me. Mood wise and stubborness . I love him with ALL my heart but He's MORE Than a handful in every area and I just can't can't cant' handle another one.. patience and energy - he's on the go NON STOP -

  • i was an only child and i loved it :] so thanks mom and dad for keeping in your pants AHAHAHAHAH. sorry. i think i'm funny. anyway i dont know, my mom said she didnt ever want kids then got pregnant with me then had to have a hysterectomy due to cervical cancer so maybe she would have had more than me.

  • maxsmom thank you, I was feeling confuse and sad because my friends keep having babies and they keep asking me when I'm going to have more children.
    I can't put it in words how I feel. I only know that right know I have more that I could ask for. OP

  • yeah if you only want one child or you just arent ready for another yet that's 100% okay. you know whats best for you and your family. i know i'm not mentally healthy enough to have another child yet (maybe someday but not now).
