my dh has says he doesn't. We have 3 children already, all boys, one is 6 , one is 4 and the youngest is 1. They are gorgeous and I love them so much. My dh is a fantastic father and husband and I know I should feel lucky and blessed with what i I have, but I just can't stop this yearning for another child. I see friends having babies or who are pregnant and I honestly feel a bit jealous.

We are in our early 40s and life has not been easy. There are many logical and reasonable reasons why we should stop at 3, but this week we started selling the baby things that our youngest has grown out of and I feel so sad about it. In fact I feel bereft.

Am I being silly feeling like this? Should I just accept that I'm never going to have another baby?Am I being selfish wanting more?

The worse thing is that I can't talk to my dh about how I feel as he just gets all defensive about his decision. I feel very alone and so sad.

I felt like that till my younger DC was about 3 but DH was adamant 2 was enough.

The feeling wore off as he grew up.

Are you me? smile i have 3 boys exactly the same ages as yours and would also like a fourth. Do you know why your dh doesn't want another? Are you clear on why you do?
