  • you dont. he has to agree on it. you cant force him into having another child or it wont turn out well. maybe there is another reason he doesnt want another baby right now.

  • I'd first worry about him adjusting his attitude as far as you and your body is concerned. You can't force him to want something he doesn't want, but you can start fixing another issue, and that's him criticizing you. (regardless that he may think you look good now, he obviously had an issue with your weight in the past, and that's something you and him definitely need to work with).

  • I recommend putting the baby issue on hold for now and seeking couples counseling. You need to address the way he is treating you. For him to say he doesn't want another baby because he doesn't want you to gain weight is hurtful and would make ME feel like my DH didn't love me unconditionally.

  • I agree with xxhazel and Sonial... he has poor reasons for not wanting more children. I have to wonder if those are his actual thoughts or if its a cover or an excuse. Are you just a nice body or are you his wife?
    On a personal note, I wanted another child SOOOOOO bad for many years. Finally, after about 5 years, we saw eye to eye and started trying. The timing had to be right and it was really hard for me to accept.
