What do you do when he wants more kids & you don't?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My husband and I have 3 kids together, 5, 7, and 8. He's started dropping hints about wanting another one but I'm exhausted from the 3 we have. I've told him I like having 3 and don't want more but he keeps trying to make me change my mind.

What can I do to get him to understand?

I had the same dispute with my husband and he waited for me to be ready. I'm pregnant with #4 and my others are 18, 14 and 11

well whats his reason for wanting another? did he just pick a number out of the air? but really...you both have to agree...just be honest and if you are not up to it...he has to respect that in the end since you are the one who has to carry the baby and most likely care 99% of the time for all the kids

good luck

Not sure, I'm concerned ours would be the other way around.

DH wanted another child when our DS was 2, but I told him no.

Yeah we talked before marriage didn't do any good. People change their minds after they actually have children. They are more aware of what they can handle. Just keep telling him how you feel op.

Should be talked about before marriage. I say if he wants more he can get pregnant.

I would tell him how tired I am and what my responsiblities are.  Maybe you all could come to a compromise, that if he helps more and you are not so tired, you would feel like having another.
