Did you only WANT one child? Or do you WANT more? Are you planning on having more? Did you chose to only have one, and if so, why?
I only have one, she is two, and we have talked about having another, but (I know this sounds horrible) I can't help but think if I have another I will never love it the same as my DD. I'm terrified I will get a "bad" kid, or have a boy and not know how to raise him. My DD and I are VERY close (yes, even at 2!) and I'm scared that if I have another that it will just take away from time that I want to spend with her. I came from a large family and growing up I always wanted a huge family, like 5 kids, but now that I have one, IDK I just don't feel like I want more. Anyone else feel this way? Do you think it is "mean" to only have one, your child doesn't have siblings? Sorry I know this is long, I am just confused, DH wants more, IDK what I should do!
