I'm not sure if this is the right section....

My baby girl is 6 months. I'm loving it so much. And I am definatly wanting a second but want to enjoy her for the moment. But my sister every time we go out says. When u having another, don't be selfish, she will be lonely. I have said so many times give me a chance let me enjoy DD for now.

I'm not on the pill, I'm 37 and too be honest I have had so many problems it's a miracle this one arrived. I was told I probably wouldn't be able to have children after last operation. So my daughter is my miracle. So it might not happen, but I am really getting fed up with the questions. I want to scream!!! She is 6 months!!!! F off!!!! She waited three years between children, I know she means well but it's driving me mad.

Is your sister the only one pressuring you? Is so, then I would just verbalise the 'F off!!' you are thinking. Seriously, let her know she is pissing you off. You should be able to do that with sisters I do with mine, she hates it. Then, tell her you know she means well BUT SHE HAS TO STOP.

It seems to be everyone, friends ,colleagues etc. Even neighbour. But sister is continuously saying it!! Even when out with others! Then you end up with five other people all saying same thing!

Say that you're starting to think that having a sibling isn't a great idea and give her a hard stare.

Speak to your sister. She is being annoying and insensitive.

Only have another baby when you are ready and don't worry about what other people say. My son was only 6 months old when I got pregnant again with my daughter and it was a mistake to have them so close together. Really hard work! There is always someone in your family who has opinions on how may kids you should have and how you should raise them. My MIL is always on hand with her helpful 'suggestions!'

I used to look people in the eye and say "are you seriously wanting to discuss my sex life?" - at the end of that day thats what it boils down to grin
