We had the opposite issue. He wanted more and I said "When you have the second one, I will have the another one." That was 29 years ago ... I'm still waiting to see that second kid.

My husband and I agreed on the same # of children before marriage and luckily, neither of us changed our mind. lol. If I was in that situation, I would just find a way to accept it.

Depends on how many you have and age to me..

I do not want any more I am too old and have too many medical issues, if he said no and I was healthy and younger I would say fine we only have 1 and that is fine w/me we did want another but it did not happen!

 I would respect his decisions. You don't want to get yourself mixed up in a situation that involves you being pregnant and him not wanting the baby. That would be bad for everyone. If he eventually changes his mind, then yay for you! But if not, be happy with the children you DO have and enjoy your family!

He has said he doesn't want more and I do. As of now I am getting an IUD put in, and we'll reevaluate and see if he is still totally against more kids in 5 years when it's time to have it taken out.

I completely agree

Quoting OHgirlinCA:

 I'd respect his wishes.  Both partners need to be on the same page before having a child.  Perhaps he'll change his mind in the future... perhaps not.  I'd focus on the children I do have and not focus on the child that could be.

Getting pregnant on purpose without consulting and being in agreement with your partner first is just plain wrong.  (Not saying you're doing that, just saying it in general terms)

I'd respect him and leave it alone for a while.  I might try to approach it later on.
