Only child - dilemma !?
So our daughter turned 2 a month ago, and of course the questions are rolling in,
'So, when's the next one coming? '
"She needs a play mate now!"
"Better get cracking, you don't want to leave it too long!"
And I thought by now, I would just be ready and wanting another child.....
But whenever I think of doing it all over again, I am overcome with fear and dread.
Yes I did have severe post natal depression, but aside from that, I'm just super happy with how things are now. I've never felt so happy, we have a great life and a great balance.
It's not because of the birth, but because I'm just very content, very happy, and not one ounce of me craves another baby.
It's sad but I am not as maternal as I thought I would be.
And whenever my partner is hinting to 'start trying' and making comments such as "but you'll be pregnant by then!" when we are planning things in the very near future, I get a sinking feeling in my stomach. I can't explain it.
I really need to talk to someone. I don't know where to start, or where to go.
Partner definitely wants another one. And wants one now.....
