I feel so guilty...

Sometimes wanting to have another baby, but know that over population is a real thing. How can I just add to the numbers of humans. There are too damn many as is, but I REALLY want another baby. 

I always think that MAYBE just maybe I'll be able to tell myself no. Yet I never get to that official no because it's the right thing to do.

I want another baby. v.v 

(Also as a disclaimer-- my opinion doesn't mean I think YOU are wrong for having more/many babies. That is your personal choice. This post is only about me, my conscience and the feels on the world around me.)

I don't see a problem with having another baby, as long as you can afford to.

 how many children do you have already? if you're uncomfortable with it, then don't. but if you really want a baby, and can afford to have one, then you have every right to!

I am sure one more baby won't cause the world to crumble. Hugs

Personally I think that is something too big to feel guilty about.  Your one extra kid would not be damaging or push us over the edge.

I cannot currently afford it. This is a in the future goal. Working on it but taking all the steps to make it does not happen until my  family(I can afford) is ready for it.

with more and more people not having as many kids, if any at all, I think you having 1 or 2 more won't be a problem. if you want another baby and can afford it, go for it. later on in life you really might regret not having more if thats what you really want.

I have contributed more than my fair share to the World Population Explosion......I doubt one or 2 more will be  a deal breaker

Why not adopt a baby at birth?

ehhh. I mean. I appreciate the sentiment, but if I was going to adopt it would be an older child. Since they are usually subjected to crappy lives as wards of the state or in foster care. 

It's more about conception with my SO, pregnancy and birth of a baby. All that goes with that.. breastfeeding, raising a child, and etc
