Hubby and I discussed it before we got married. He let me know with his health issues, that he would not be able to emotionally or physically handle more than one. He asked me if I would be okay with that. I said I was.

But also, financially, one child makes sense for our family. Our resources would be severely stretched if we added a second child and we just don't want to do that in this economy.

Hope this helps! Good luck with your decision.

Financially it makes sense for us too!

I loved the newborn/infant stage, but I only had one baby. I don't have it in me to care for a newborn and give my son all the love I want to give him. Hope that doesn't make me sound like a bad mom.
