DH is 17 years older than me, I'm 33, we have 2 DD aged 4&2

DH doesn't want any more due to his age, space we live n a semi, cost etc

Am I just being broody?

Not unreasonable to maybe feel that you'd like another child. Very unreasonable to have one if your husband doesn't want more though .

Ywbu to have another if your DH doesn't want another but not u to want another.

YABVU "to have another baby" if your DH is against the idea. No harm wishing you could though.

YANBU to want another but YABU to insist on one. At some point I think we all have to accept we have enough even if we desire more (not talking exclusively about children here). I had to stop at one and DH is only 4 years older than me. There are a lot of positive reasons to stop and concentrate on what you have.

You can want what you want, but if you trick your DP then YABU

suppose these are the problems you get with a big age gap, perhapse talk to him about how you feel. maybe he doesnt want another but does that mean your wants are not as important. discussion (with slight pursuasion and a kick up the backside) is the anser to everything. smile

YABU to have a baby with someone who doesn't want one but YANBU to want one.
