I have a little boy aged 5 and love him very much. However recently i have been thinking maybe i want another one? After a tough birth and him never sleeping, i always said never again and so did my partner. But my feelings are changing and my partner is dead against any more, he won't even consider it. He want's us to concentrate on our son and only him. I don't no what to do? It's really getting me down and i can't help but think i may start to resent my partner in later time if i can't have another child! I can't get all this out of my head!

Is it a definate definate No? ask him if you two can have a 6 month break from talking about another baby, while you are on the break though, he must think hard if he definatly doesn't want another, and then go for the snip. Either it will back fire spectacularly, or he will give in!
Good luck though.

Yes a definate no. He shuts me out whenever i try and talk about it. He also belives i should work full time(which i do), and of course having another child would mean me having to cut down my working hours and he wouldn't want that because of money. I really want a sibling for my little boy!

His mother was the bread winner since he was small, she worked all hours to support him, his dad and rest of his brothers and sisters, and i feel this is where he gets it all from with wanting me to work full time. He says its so we can have enough money to go on hols etc, but i just want to be a mum at home!!
