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 tell him I am the one who does all the work, carrying them for 9 months, giving birth, and then raising them. I'm the disciplinary, the fun one, the one who goes through the night feedinga etc.....all in all it's me, my body and my choice. I'm not rude to him, but input it simply and factually, I don't want anymore either And while I was still pregnant with our now 3 week old son he said he wanted one more.....no. I don't like being pregnant and don't want anymore. There ya go. Just tell him plainly and honestly.

I'm not sure. Alot of people will tell you that you should've found that out before you got married. But men can change their kinds just like women. Dh and I swore we only wanted two kids. We've for 5 now. All planned.
