What keeps you from having another kid?

I have a 3 year old and would love another lil one but the hubby says no way. not for some years still....I understand his reasoning..but sometimes I just dont want to wait lol. So how do you over come that tug of wanting another one...another one to love...for your child to play with...to grow together...and all the amazing things that come with children :)

  • That's easy. The cost of raising a child. The fact that I had my last kid at 23 and that I am now in my early 40's and can do anything I want to do! That thought is enough to made me shudder. UGH!

  • We have a 22 month old and a 9 month old. I love it, they play together now. I couldn't imagine not having 2 of them. We want a third but until the job situation looks up and money is better it's just them. I am sorry your hubby feels that way. By the time you have another they may be in completely different age groups. I grew up with my brother, and cousins, it was awesome!!

  • I don't know how you "overcome" the want but some times you just have to for the benefit of the family. I want another one ASAP! Wesley just turned 1 and we had always planned to have them close together but after he was born DH lost his job and therefore our insurance. So we had to get individual insurance and the maternity does not kick in until 12 months after the start of the plan. So that will be March 2011. So we'll start TTC again then. If we had insurance that would cover it now - then we would already be TTC.

  • A vasectomy and having another c-section. The last one, the docs said there were a lot of adhesions and scar tissue. Also, I am just done having kids. I do not want any more.
