How do I tell him

That I want another baby?

Dh & I talked about kids before we married and always wanted 2. We've talked about not wanting too big of an age difference between them, but also not back to back. Well, ds just turned 3 and we're beginning potty training. He is into the whole, "I want to do it" stage. Which is when I always imagined starting to try for number 2.

I've been thinking about having another for a long time, but I've been half waiting for when I think ds will be at a good age for the change and half too nervous to even bring up the subject with dh. He recently got a huge raise, and we will soon be able to finally pay some bills off. I think when we start knocking those bills out, I would really like to start, but again, I don't even know how to bring it up to dh. & I'm nervous he won't agree.

Just ask him when he wants to start trying for a new baby. Be honest that's really the best option.

How exciting, I love babies. If I could (tubes tied) and if my ex husband and I were still together and we didnt  run into issues I would have had a ton of kids. (subject for a different day)

Anywho... Just talk to him and tell him that you think it is best that you start working on it. My oldest and middle child are 6 years apart and it was hard to start all over again. my third child and middle child were only 1 1/2 years apart and it was easier, they had each other to play with. My oldest was already out growing the baby stuff at 5 and by the time my middle was old enough to really play, my oldest was really out of the whole dolls and baby stuff. 
I wish you luck!!
