I only have the one DS, he turned 3 last month.
Still haven't had that urge that I must have another child. We were thinking of TTC later this year, but it's really not solid.
I'm 34 years old, my DH is 42. My first and only pregnancy was complicated and resulted in DS being delivered at 31+2. Having a premmie was quite a rollercoaster.
DS is a real firecracker, very strong willed and incredibly active. He has a speech delay and is currently in an early intervention play group. The fact that he isn't an 'easy' child just makes me want to focus on him more without bringing another baby into the mix.
We could very well end up with an only child, and I think we'll both be fine with that

Hi, we only have one DS, who is now 5 years old. We won't be having any more and I feel a bit lonely too. I had a straightforward easy pregnancy and labour. There are about 5 other families in DS's class at school who also only have the one child so that has helped. All my other friends have more than one though.

I am pregnant with my one and only! People are already asking about a second, the looks when you say probably not are unbelievable. My line at the moment is one is a good comprise on none as I always said I wasn't having children. DP already has two from a previous marriage. I'm 36 and he is 38. I will be very happy with one and I just can't see us with more.

I'm 99% sure this is us
DS is 2.5 and I can't see anymore in the future, I really don't have that desire for another child. I find being a parent to a young one very restricting.
DH is also very happy with just one
Many people keep telling me I'll want another but I'm yet to get that feeling!

My DD is 16 months and I don't feel any desire to have a second at the moment. Before I had her I always thought I'd have at least two children, maybe more, but now that we have DD in our life I just don't feel that urge to have another. DH feels the same.
We have so many friends and relatives onto their second baby now and the questions and pressure on us is unbelievable; when I answer honestly that I'm not sure we'll have a second people look at me like I'm crazy. I don't know, I haven't completely ruled it out but I don't see another child in the foreseeable future.

Single mum to a 2.5 DD. I crave for another pregnancy/baby that it hurts, but into I find my true love, then I can only watch on to my friends and family have kids. It cuts me up inside, but I also focus on the positives of only having one child .

Well I'm 39 and single OP so there was never going to be a no.2 for me. I am perfectly content with that. I don't care to do it all again, and DS is everything I could have wanted anyway
Just play it by ear and see how you go. Don't worry, be happy
