I recently made a post about really wanting a 3rd child .
I do have 2 children - it took us awhile to get pregnant with both of them and we had always planned on just having two, and I have always been very grateful that I was able to have them.... But I just cant get rid of the "want" of a 3rd baby ... I think about it all of the time and I really just feel like something ( well someone) is missing. This is the same way i felt after my first, which is why we had another... We have a 5 bedroom home, I am a stay at home mom and my husband has a great job.... But when i talk to him about it ( which is what my post was about) ..and he said he doesnt think he wanted another ... ( we have talked about it more and he said that he just never planned on a 3rd, but now since I brought it up he has been thinking about it alot too and we are going to start trying again) ....
Anyways .... So i never said I am not happy with my two kids... If I am unable to have anymore I will still be happy ( of course I would be sad for awhile ) ... They are my whole world - I love them so much that I want more of them ! lol...
So how is that selfish ? I got a tons of comments saying I was being selfish for wanting another when i already have 2, and that there are women who cant even have one, etc.... I got so upset and I deleted it.... but then I thought... Do these people then consider every person who has more than 2 planned children a selfish person ?
