We have a two year old son and I am ready for baby #2 but my husband is not. He is very adamant about not wanting more children. I would never get pregnant on purpose and suprise him with an unwanted baby but I am so sad that he is done having kids. I almost feel depressed about it. It doesn't help that 6 friends in the past year have had a baby and today I just found out that there is one more baby on the way for another girlfriend...it's like I am constantly surrounded by babies. How can I move past this? What would you do?

The most important thing a parent can do before making a decision (especially a life changing decision) is ask themselves, "Is this the best thing for my child(ren)?" This is something your husband and you need to ask yourselves. Are you financially and emotionally ready for another baby? Is it the best thing for your son? Is your DH a good father? If your home is unstable financially or emotionally it might not be the best choice to bring another child into it.
IMO I think kids deserve a sibling and it is the best thing for most kids, as long as the parents can handle it. To me your husband seems to be thinking of himself when making his decision. Have him think about it based solely on the best thing for your son, see what answer and reasoning he has. I hope things work out for your family.
