I haven't used the forums in a while... DS ( my only) just turned two, weaned himself a few months ago.
I'm hoping to hear from other moms who are ready to TTC but their partner isn't. I'd love to know you are out there!
My husband and I agreed when we got married that we'd probably like to have two children. And I've always wanted to have two, about 3 years apart. I was thinking we would start trying over the summer, just before DS's 2-year birthday. But DH seems to still be recovering from the change to his life from our first.
I feel like my life is in a great place. We have no major family issues, our son is fabulous and easy to care for... But my DH is not feeling emotionally stable. I wish he could decide to move forward with this and get used to the idea during the 9 months!
I'm coping with all kinds of big feelings - lot of sadness, feeling like we're "behind", anger at him for keeping me from what I want to do, etc... I am so ready to do this project with him and get to have that closeness that TTC brings. and I want our family to have four people in it! DH says that he's not opposed to having a 2nd, but he's not sure when he'll be ready. So I have no idea how long I'll be waiting. I want my children to be close in age! And since we've just weaned, I think my hormones are going crazy.
Anyone else out there dealing with this kind of thing?
