DH and I have two beautiful, healthy boys already, ages 2 1/2 and 7 months. I've always wanted 3 children and remember telling DH this before we had kids. I'm an only child and DH has one brother that lives on the other coast, so I feel like our family is small as it is and want my children to experience growing up with siblings.
Both of my pregnancies were pretty perfect. Fortunately we conceived right away both times and I just thoroughly enjoyed it and am longing to experience it again. I feel almost selfish at times because we do already have 2 amazing kids and I'm well aware that many couples never get to have even one. DH had an appointment to get a vasectomy, but ended up cancelling it. He said he just doesn't think he can handle the pain. Anyways, I think about it daily and get emotional almost every time! He says things were made for families of 4 (restaurant booths, Disney packages, etc.), that it's an even number and on and on. I just feel like his reasons are nothing I care about. I don't care about having to pull an extra chair up to the table to accomodate an odd #...also my SUV wouldn't be large enough for 3 kids, at least while in car seats, and we'd have to get a van. That doesn't bother me!
Anyone else having the same issue? I feel like we'll never be on the same page about it and really don't want to struggle with this the rest of our lives! We're best friends and usually agree on everything, except this! It's a really big deal to me!
