Hi everyone. I am a fellow done after one mommy. My son, Billy, will be 16 months old on the 24th. While I get sad, at times, thinking about never being pregnant again or never giving birth again, it is what is best for hubby and I. Of course I get the usual, "You can't have just one" comments from my family. Yeah, um, actually I can.
Hello Jennifer! I know exactly what you mean! I dont even have my little man here with me yet and DH and I already want to be done. We are VERY happy to be pregnant and are head over heels in love but sometimes you just know. I agree, it does get old! I wish people didnt assume us women HAVE to HAVE more then one child. Actually, in some cases its smarter to have one child, my opinion. It makes me so sad to see mommies with more then one child struggling and you can see they are not happy. I dont want to be like that. For my lifestyle one is perfect.
The biggest thing people say to me is that Drake will not have social skills...um you do NOT have to have multiple children to teach a child social skills. Im sorry but thats a crock. My DH is an only child and he is not socially imparied. I am one of 4, but I always remember my Dad could not come to stuff, things were always sacraficed since there were 4 kids. I dont want that for Drake.
Honestly, I think its awesome that some women can say "I want just one" because I feel as if they have weighed out all the pros and cons and realize that one is just as great as 5 to some families. You dont see people saying "Omg, you should not have more kids" so why do they say that WE should...I dont get it.
