My hubby wants a little girl. We have five boys. 9, 7, 5, 4, 9months. I'm a sahm. I love my boys. Our last child we was trying to have a girl. This mourning we was eating breakfast and dh ask me, how long are we going to wait until we try again. I was puzzled. I'm thinking to myself I'm tired. My body is tired. Now I feel like I'm being selfish. THOUGHTS?

After child number 3 I would have been done, lol. If you are not up for it, tell him. You are the one having to stay home with kids.

How old are you? You must have some energy with 5 boys!

The baby is only 9 months old, tell him you want to wait longer and then have a talk with him when the baby is older.

O my goodness! I would ask for some time. That's a lot of work. I have 2 boys and they're crazy but I also got my little girl last time.

I have one child, a 14 month old boy. I can't even imagine how tired you are. I would wait until your youngest is older and think about it at that time. For now you should let your husband know that you are tired. It's not selfish to realize you have limits.

It's not selfish.  BUT, in my home we had a "rule" that you didn't speak of having more children until the youngest was at least a year.  Then you could broach the topic.  I'd go that route for now, while you sort out your thoughts and how to present them and ask him for his feedback.
