im in a bit of a predicament, I have 2 children and am seperated from the dad, My new partner has a daughter he sees regularly,
We have been together 18 months and live together with my 2 children,
I need another one, my body is crying out for another baby, BUT he is adamant he dosnt want more kids, what do i do? should he let me have one if he loved me? or should i respect his choice if i loved him? i cant bear the thought of not being with him but i dont know if i can live with this hole inside me that can only be filled with another baby.
I dont even want one right now im thinking in 2-3 years. Do i stay with him and hope in time he changes his mind or should i accept we want different things and move on to find someone that does want more kids? i really dont wanna be without him.
Has anyone been in my situation and does the feeling ever go away??

Hi i havent been in your situation but i having tried for a second baby for 4 years i know the pain of wanting one and not getting one. If you REALLY want another baby, and cant talk him around, i think you have to move on. If you stay and dont ever have another baby you will only end up resenting him and probably leave him anyway, only by then it might be too late to have another baby. Good luck and i hope things turn out the way you want.

Suffice to say the one time I was in a relationship like this was many years ago now, I was early 20s & desperate to settle down & have a family whilst he was late 20s already had his family from a previous relationship gone wrong but couldn't give me any children because he'd had the 'snip' & wouldn't have it reversed. We ended up agreeing we couldn't each other what we really wanted & parted on good terms.
I know many a broody woman trying to convince her other half to see things her way, some will succeed, some won't. Does the feeling ever go away? - They say time heels all wounds but just how long it takes is down to the individual in question.
