hello =) im new to this site and this is one topic i'm really having trouble with at home. i have a 6 year old boy and like for 3 years now i been trying to convince my husband that we need another baby in the house. We actually had a serious conversation about it like 3 days ago he said that i really needed to let go of that baby fever because it wasnt gonna happen not now or later. hes super convinced that with my son we have more that enough and i totally disagree. im super depressed at the moment and idk what to do. since i learned how to crochet, i've made a lot of baby thing for friends and it kills me not being able to have a baby of my own and make things for it. his #1 reason why he doesnt want me to get pregnant is beacuse HES SCARED TO HAVE A GIRL, and he knows he'll have a rough time not being 2 over protective of her. but i tell him that nobody knows what God wants to bless us with and it might even b a boy. My son always tells me that he wants to go "buy a baby" and i feel bad that my husband is being selfish and not want my son or myself with another baby in the house. i seriously need some help with this. i need advice on what i can do to cope with his decision.

Hi love4pink26, I really feel for you hun! it seems he's telling you how he feels but what about you??? you say this is his decision;do you not have a say in this???!!!!
I could understand if he didn't want another because of health reasons, money, age, etc but I don't think his reason is viable enough to say no to what you so clearly long for.
You really need to tell him him how you feel, how can he just dismiss your feelings as a woman/mother?!! I think to tell you to let go of this "baby fever" is so selfish!
My hubby really isn't bothered about another child (he has 2 from a previous marriage and I have 1) but he understands that I would at least like to try for a baby with him.
My worry for you is you'll end up resenting him!
sorry to be so blunt but just want to be honest.
take care xx
