Baby Fever

It's been pretty much decided that my husband and I will only be having one child, she is 17months old.  We have discussed this and have pretty much agreed on this.  But lately I have been thinking otherwise and now am wanting another baby.  I talked about this with my husband and he is stuck on only having one child.  Now what??

This is a hard one. I would say maybe make a list of how your life would be different of having another baby. What I mean is sit down with your husband and make a list of how much it would change your life. Finacialy, home wise, how much more work will there be, how will your first child react. Also ask yourself are you only having this feeling because your baby is growing up? I also had this question when my daughter was 6 months, I was so sad she was growing up and wanted another baby, even though we agreed to wait untile are daughter was 2. (shes 1 now) 


I hope this helps.

Your child is only 17 months. Wait a few years, then talk to hub again.

The feelings might pass. Every once in a while I get baby fever but then my dd does something and that baby feeling goes right out the window.

I would wait a little and then ask again.
