Second baby

When did you know you wanted another child. My daughter is 1 and my husband has started talking about it. He has even mentioned it to others. I know I want another I just don't know if I am ready yet. I always feel weird when he brings it up.

    I don't think anything is holding me back really. Also he isn't thinking until after summer. WE would go on a trip etc. I think a lot of it is I don't want to admit my daughter is growing up.

      I think both of you need to be on board before trying for another baby, I am thinking about having a second child too but my fiance isn't ready yet. We are still trying to work on getting a bigger apartment or house first.

        If you aren't ready, that's not something to be ashamed of. I would just tell your husband that you aren't sure you are ready for a second.

        On the other hand - remember that it co uld take some time to get pregnant, and then you will have 9 months of pregnancy before your baby is actually there. So though you may not be ready for a baby this second, you may be able to look ahead and say "yes, I'll be ready in 9ish months!"

          It feels like a lot of parents get the bug when their kid reaches that 1 year point. Possibly because around that time children start to display some independence? Not sure, that's just what it feels like.

          I don't think there's anything wrong with waiting. We know that we don't want Charlie to be an only child, but we're leaving it up to God to tell us when we're supposed to have another. I agree with the other ladies on this one. Sit with your hubs and have that talk, it's so important that you two are on the same page. Good luck!

            Like I said it's not that I don't think I'm ready it's just that I am having a hard time believing my baby is a year old.
