Well, as the subject line says, I'm 33 and have an almost 2yr old ds. It was a long journey getting him. We ttc for 2yrs with no luck. Then my dh lost his job so we stopped ttc until our situation improved. I had the coil fitted, but didn't get on with it so had it removed a few months later. 1 month after, I found out I was pregnant! A complete surprise. Unfortunately I lost the baby at about 6 weeks but I was relieved to know we could get pregnant.
A few months later our situation changed enough to start ttc again. I got pregnant with our ds on our first 'proper' month of trying and I was ecstatic - I was really expecting it to take months/years again.
Fast forward to now, and I would like to start ttc #2. Of course, I am incredibly grateful to have 1 child, as I know it just doesn't happen for so many couples, but I'd love to complete our family with 1 last baby (sometimes I think I am crazy to want this as some days I am so exhausted from running after our ds and working part time I can't imagine adding a newborn to it!
). Unfortunately, my dh doesn't want any more children so I have some convincing to do. Since I am already 33 I don't feel that I have a lot of time to sit around waiting for him to change his mind, especially if it takes us a while to conceive again. At the same time, I don't want to nag him to the extent it's just a blanket 'no.'
Anyway, I'm hoping to directly ask him in the New Year if we can start ttc, or at least ask him to give it some serious thought.
I'd love to hear from others in a similar situation, or whether your dh changed his mind (or even if they didn't, and how you resolved this conflict).
