I love children and want more but I really really dont want to get pregnant. My last child did major damage to my body and It took me a while to somewhat repair my body so that its lean and toned but my husband wants another baby and to see me pregnant again. I'm just scared that I will get fat and have more extra skin to deal with, more stretch marks, or that my breast will get even more saggy. I know its selfish but I dont want to put my body through that. I have suffered with an eating disorder for a while and I'm also scared of what might happen if I did get pregnant or if I relapse after the pregnancy. I'm I being selfish for not wanting to get pregnant?

You're not being selfish. I think we each have fears about each pregnancy, whether it be about the baby or ourselves. If you feel it would not be good for you and thus not good for the family, don't. If you do decide to have another, I would recommend starting counseling to deal with your eating disorder while you are pregnant and after; those sorts of things are best dealt with pre-emptively rather than after they become a problem.
