My boyfriend and I had the same experience! I really wanted to have another baby before our son turned 3, but my boyfriend said that he loves our son to no end and he didn't want another. It led to a lot of upsetting conversations, but here we are, our son is now 4, and we don't have another baby. I try and think of all the positives like the fact that we can focus all our attention on one child, how much less stress we will have in almost every area of our lives, and the cost savings. Just try and remember that even though your family is all having babies, you already have a precious child. If you still feel as strongly in a couple months try talking to him again and make him see your true feelings. Maybe it will work out for you
I am so relieved to see your post! I have been going through this with my husband for well over 2 years. I feel less "crazy" knowing that other people are going through this too.
We were not married when we had our first child and I had always said that I wanted a second and he always agreed.
When our son was about 18 mnths, I started bringing it up and he put it off and said that he wanted to wait until we were married.
So 8 months later after we were married I brought it up again and he said he wanted to enjoy "the honeymoon period" (with a 2 yr old????)
And now my son is 3 and my husband has come up with a tonne of other excuses too and still....no second child.
I hope your husband is more receptive to your very important needs. This is a very important topic.
