Broody DH - anyone dealt with this?

DH is seriously broody.
I am getting daily requests to stop taking the pill.

All three of our kids have SN of one kind or another, autism being a common factor although mobility issues are involved too.

It's hard work.

Whilst I'd not say no long term right now it is definitely a no.

I've said I'll consider it when DD starts school. She's 13 months now.

I was diabetic when pg with dd, she was seriously ill after birth and in SCBU due to cord prolapse, it was terrifying and I ended up with horrific PND for which I am still taking medication (although I have largely recovered).

There is no way for my physical or mental health that I can do this, he's also out of work.

I'm saying no but he still keeps asking.

Inspiration anyone?

No experience of this, but bumping for you...

Have you spoken to him about why he wants another right now?

LBAM he just adores the kids we have.
Particularly DD, our youngest.

Thing is despite being a hands on parent - he changes nappies, helps with meals, dressing, bathtime and bedtime - he doesn't really contribute to the SN side of things - dealing with the LEA regarding education provision, filling in DLA forms, getting them to appointments with their numerous consultants, managing the family diary.

I don't think he realises just how much peripheral stuff each child brings.

tell him that if he can demonstrate an ability to expunge a Galia melon through his penis, you'll have another baby
