My son is almost 2 years old. I have wanted to start trying for another baby for over a year now. It took me 5 months to convince my husband. I also have to see a fertility specialist, so it makes things a little more complicated. I got pregnant and I lost the baby. It was devastating. So now I am able to go back and start trying again but my husband has changed his mind again. He says he only wants one. Sometimes I think the same thing, our son is getting older and easier to handle, do we want to go through the baby stage again? But then I think about how lonely he will be growing up and even as an adult to not having siblings would stink. So my question is, for those that have more than 1, do you regret it? Do you wish you'd stuck with just 1. Did you feel the way we feel before you tried for 2? Thanks!Answer Question

No, I don't regret having two. There is 5 years between my children and my older child was so lonely before his brother came along. I honestly never imagined raising two boys but I wouldn't have it any other way. There was 5 years between my middle brother and I and before he came along I was pretty lonely as well. Sometimes it was a pain in the ass having younger siblings but now that we are all grown we are best friends and I'm so glad that I have siblings.

No one can tell you what is best for YOU.
Im not even going to tell you how many I have... because what we did was choose what was best for us.... and that is what you must do.
I have friends with 5 kids, and friends with 1 kid.... and all are VERY very happy....... because it was the perfect number for thier family.
