Anyone enjoy torturing themselves like I do ;)

My husband is not really 100% on board with a second baby. We have one four year old son. I am turning 35 next week, and have been on the fence as well, but now my age is starting to give me that biological clock ticking feeling. So we don't use any other birth control besides pull and pray during fertile times, and I chart my BBT and CF, so I have a pretty positive idea of when to be careful. However, lately I've been hoping for an oops and will test from 8dpo if I feel like there is any possibility I could be pregnant. My husband says that he would of course be happy, but has no interest in actually trying for another. He wants us to have the freedom to travel, have time to ourselves, etc.

Anyone else in the same boat?

i just made a post similar to this lol. im 21 and engaged. my fiance and I have one child together. I never thought that I would want another one and he always did. Now I've been having strong emotions about baby #2 . We've talked about having another one since I've been having this strong desire and today he told me that he didn't really want to have another, my heart now feels stronger about my decision and broken by his. Now I'm having a very hard time trying to accept his decision. His reason behind his is because we cannot afford another one. I told him, we couldn't afford our daughter but we're doing good financially now. Would your hubby be willing to quit pulling and praying for at least a year? If nothing comes of it then by a year, at least you tried.. I know if you cannot conceive within a year it's considered infertile.
