I want another baby UPDATE

I want another baby and be pregnant by the end of this year, my husband wants us to wait til the end of next year. That will put the kids about 4 years apart and I don't want that. I will have finished school by December 2014 and I don't want to have to put a newborn in daycare because after I finish school I plan on going back to work. Does this seem logical? My dh doesn't want to have a baby in the house were in because he thinks it's to small, it's not 2 bedroom and full basement. The baby won't have his/her own room but at up intil 3 months old the baby would be in our room anyway so I don't see the problem. I know I need to talk with him again kind of just wanted to vent and see what you ladies think...

Another thing.. I'm 27 and I'm adamant about having another child before I'm 30 and my dh will be 40 next month, he's already mention about how hard it is being a 40 year old father so I'm thinking this may be apart of it.

Thanks

I talked with my dh this morning and he see's my point and we are planning to have another child toward the end of the year! I'm SO excited.

My dds are 4 1/2 yrs apart! I wish I didnt wait so long but I was in school. They are 10 1/2 mos and 5. I just wish so bad they were closer in age cuz I feel they'd be closer as kids. I mean when they grow up they probably will be. But ya I see your point! Do it now!

I am kind of in the same Boat. My bf and I have a 5 yr old and I want another one. I keep telling him I need to get my iud taken out but he wants to wait. I am 9 yrs older than my sis and I didn't want kids that far apart.

I had the same plan- done by the time I'm 30 (I'm 28 now). With the way my life worked out, it doesn't look like that's gonna happen, because I won't be done with school for at least another year and half, and want to work to build up some savings and move into a bigger house. So, logically, we're probably looking at 3-4 years, which will put my youngest at 8, 9 years old. Now THAT'S a huge gap, especially when my oldest and middle are 16 months apart, my middle and youngest are 2 years apart.

I'll give you a bump because I'm done with the baby stage and couldn't imagine having another one. 

Good luck with your decisions.
