I really want another baby but....

Hubby doesn't. Not right now at least. But I often hear him say he doesn't want anymore. I can't convince him. My calling is to be a mommy, I want one more! I don't know what to do. Our first was an accident, but she has now become his pride and joy and he loves her more than I ever imagined and he's a wonderful dad. I don't want to force him into being a father again, but I also don't want to miss out on being a mommy for the 3rd time. He tells me that I just want another baby because i'm bored...? How can I be BORED when i'm a stay at home mom to 2 kids?! I just feel like if I got pregnant, he'd come around and get excited, and of course love the baby just as much as our other 2. But again, I don't want to 'trick' him into anything or force it on him. Advice?!

  • Talk about why he doesn't want another one, and go from there. If it's something that can be changed, then you can work on changing it. If not, then you'll know where you stand.

  • He thinks we can't afford it. I think we can. People say if you wait til you can afford it, it'll never happen!
