How to approach the subject with your partner about having another baby?
Hello. My husband & I have a 4 year old son. Initially, I wanted to have 2 kids close in age. No more than 3 years apart. Well, our son is now 4 years old and I’d really would like to start trying to have another baby at the beginning of next year. My husband, however, would like to wait until we start building our house which would be in another 3 years (we’re working on our land in some of the infrastructure ourselves to save some money). I’m 31, about to be 32 and with our son I had to have a c-section. For any future pregnancies, it’ll be the same. The recovery from the c-section was pretty hard for me and I feel like if I wait a few more years to have another baby for 1. There will be too much of an age gap between kids. And 2. I know I’ll have a harder time with the recovery of major surgery. Any suggestions at how I can approach this subject or how else I could explain this to my husband in another way? Has anyone else been through this?
