i want another baby bad!

but my husband and i decided not to have anymore after our son was born. i had my tubes tied. but i feel like there is a missing piece to our family. i have two kids, two cats and a dog. but i still feel like im missing one more baby. although i know a third baby would be good for me, i have bad depression and very rough pregnancies. we almost lost both our kids and my husband was scared for me to have a third pregnancy. i prayed and prayed with my second pregnancy that if it was a boy that would be my sign to get my tube tied. i never regretted it until a few months ago. can anyone often advice on how to let it go? when will my clock stop

  • I have 3 and my hubby had a vasectomy part of me still wants a baby but thats because I just miss those baby days. I really don't want or need another one...3 is a handful but I think for some the feelings are just there.

  • It sounds like some brief counseling could help. With brief counseling you only go for 3-4 sessions and only work on the issue you want to work on. Many newly trained counseling psychologists are trained to do brief counseling.

  • I suggest that you see a counselor and engage more fully with the children that you have. Tell us a little bit about them.

  • You need to talk to YOUR HUSBAND about this. A baby will not cure your depression. Counseling would probaby do you some good too.
