I am so happy that I saw this on here. I am on here all the time for scrapbooking but I really needed somewhere to get some answers to my problem...glad its all on my favorite website!
So here is a little background to my question...my husband and I have been married for almost 3 years but we have been going strong for 7. We have 2 boys, my oldest I had very young by someone else not in the picture at all so my husband has always been Dad, he is almost 9. My youngest just turned 3. I love my boys with all my heart! But I want so badly to try for a girl. I know I am not guarenteed a girl but I want a big family anyways. My husband does not. He doesn't want the expense and the up all night and diapers again. We aren't rich but we aren't poor either. I do understand where is he coming from but this is something I want so bad in life.
At times I feel completely selfish about it. I feel like it comes off that my boys aren't good enough when that is not the case at all. I just want to experience a girl. I am such a girly girl in a house full of boys. I don't try to pressure my husband because I know that will do me no good but he stands firm on not having another.
I think I am at the point to where I give up. My oldest is getting older and I really don't want to put that many years between kids again. I know that things could change in my husband's mind and I am hoping but right now everytime I see a baby girl I just wanna cry, and sometimes do.
So my question, how do I accept this? What makes it easy to just let that dream go? I have 2 nieces but they both live many states away and I only see them a couple times a year (which at that time I do get my temporary girl fix) it just isn't the same as having my own. I need to know how to be ok with no more kids. Please, any advice is so appreciated!
