We should not be "expected" to have large families, you would think in a world today people would be ok with an only child household and the more educated I get the more I learn people look weird at it. I just dont get it at all. Sometimes you just know.

Same here. But, DH and I are expecting our first and a month after Drake is born I will be 27 and DH will be 31. We are not old persay but we dont want to be older parents, ya know what I mean. We started late after not wanting kids and are completely blessed to have this one. But its a lifestyle. As far as owing that money. I know what you mean. I owe $60,000 in student loans and a few other things so I mean bringing another child into this world with all this financial obligations just seems silly to me.

Bottom line, in my opinion I always hear people say "When you have kids your life stops" well I chose for that to not happen. One child, mommy and daddy just seems perfect. I will not allow my life to stop, it will be enhanced with our little boy and life will go on perfectly.

I hope you feel better, and do what is right for YOU and no one else.

It is your choice. And if you are perfectly happy (albeit still stressed) having just your son, so be it. It is your life and choice.

I had DS at 27...and now at almost 32, I feel ALMOST too old to even think about having more kids. I always thought I would have 3 or 4...then that changed to 2. But, DH is 41 and I honestly don't know that we'd have an easy time getting pregnant with a 2nd. *shrugs* So, we're happy with one.
