DD is 5 months old and all my friends at this age are already considering more kids. I've always wanted 2 so they have companionship but now that I have one, I can't imagine going through all this again.
It was an average pregnancy, easy labour and she's overall a pretty good bub. Had a rough patch with sleeping which knocked me about for the first 3 months but so many people have had much worse.
Fell pregnant pretty much straight away too.
So I feel really guilty that the reason I don't want another is that I really hated the sleep deprivation and going through the newborn 'living hell' stage. Because I am too selfish to make another baby DD will miss out on a sibling. It's not because I can't conceive, not because it was a difficult labour, not because of financial reasons, it's just because it was too hard for me.
How can I explain that to my little girl when grows up and asks why she doesn't have a brother or a sister?
