    Default my husband is driving me nuts :)

    He is the one who should be writing here. I do not want to have another baby now. I have written in here a while ago when we were trying to decide 3 or no.... but then Ive reached the decision that im ok with 2. I am tooooooo old to try for another...

    Having said all that... its my husband that cant decide. Hes an only child and likes the idea of 3 kids. I would probably have another for him (I PROBABLY wont regret another child ... but I dont want him to regret not having another one or to resent me for denying him iykwim) I do say id probably do it, but Im not sure really. I dont know if I have it in me to be preggers, do the newborn/no sleep thing.

    the thing is im 39. waaaayyyy to old right?

    I thought we had decided and last night he was watching tv and said i think I do want another baby (he saw a newborn on the program) BUT hes still not sure! tic toc.......

    I wish we'd decide one way or the other and soooooon!

    Im not sure if ive put this post in the right spot or not - just venting LOL

    I dont think you're too old either, but I can totally understand not wanting to go through it all again. I dont think i could have another baby unless i was fully on board, no matter how keen my DH was. Pregnancy and babies are hard work!!

    You're only too old if you THINK you're too old I'm 41 and expecting my second... That said, I am pretty nervous of the newborn period and hope this one sleeps through the night from a young age like DD1 did. And this pregnancy is much harder on my body than my previous one at 39... no way would I do this again
