My daughter is 2 and a half and really grown-up for her age I'm desperatly broody but for lots of reasons I am waiting for another one. I am feeling a lot of pressure from everyone to have another one and although I'd love to practically the timing is not right but what do I say to mum, sister's, mother-in-law who think I should be starting baby number 2 and how do I cope with the longing every time I see a newborn or woman with a bump?
If people ask about trying for another baby, particularly if they're not people I'm very close to, I try to point out to them what exactly they're asking me - are we having sex? Are we using contraception? Is this really a question you would ask me?
If they're people you're close to, I'd explain the reasons why you're waiting, if you can.
