I really want one more child, DH really doesn't. I kept hoping he'd change his mind, but DD is 2 now and he hasn't budged. I respect his reasons, but it doesn't change how I feel either.
Am I going to be OK/get over this desire to have a third child, or will I resent him for this decision?

The first time I read this I instantly felt that you will be fine.
But then as I opened it again to try to tap in a little deeper I feelthat it will actually be tough for you. I'm likely feeling your different emotions about it that you are going back and forth between. I would wager to say you even went between those two emotions before and after you wrote that question. And what that tells me is that it all depends on you. You can choose to get over it, or you can choose not to. There is no definitive answer here. And sometimes it's like that. In my business, I've learned that in the end it's always up to the person. I see what's potential. I see emotions behind things and sometimes I can tell there is no definitive answer b/c it's totally a choice on the persons part. And this is one of those. Make the choice that you are comfortable with and stick with it and move forward from there, whatever choice that may be.
