baby #2

I've been having really strong feelings about wanting to have another child. But my fiance, the father of our first does not want to have another one. After I had our daughter, I thought I never would want to have another one, I had really bad ppd. A couple months ago I had a miscarriage, and I didn't even know I was pregnant. It was so far early in the pregnancy that I just didn't know. Which is good because I would have been such a mess, puting that mildly. But now my heart is swollen with emotion and desire to have another baby. I'm having a very hard time accepting his decision. I asked him to give it some thought.. We're waiting to get married until 2016, I told him I feel like if he doesn't want one now maybe then we could try once were married. I don't want to wait until our daughter is 6-7 years old. I want our children to be close in age. We've talked with other couples about having children closer in age and spaced apart, from their answers it would be best for us to have them closer together. Don't get me wrong either way I'd be happy and I know having kids isn't what's best for us. Any advice on accepting his decision.. I'm having a very difficult time with it. I don't want to resentful towards him or keep pressing the issue.

Hi. Are you sure you want to be with someone who has such a different path he wants to take in life? I'm never just a "dump him!" kind of girl, but it's something to consider. Best wishes.
