Okay, so we had our daughter, Penelope about 14 months ago. she is walking, talking some, and a ton of other stuff. She wasn't a terrible cryer and we handled everything pretty well her first year, especially being first time parents.
And before We had her, we did not want kids. So when we found out we were pregnant, we were shocked to say the least. FYI... At the time we've been together 6 years.
But fast forward a few months... I don't know, I just fell in love with her before I even met her. It was an amazing feeling, and he was excited as well.

Now my daughter is a little over a year and I recently just have had the urge to try and get pregnant again.

I talked to him about getting my birth control removed; he was on board 100%, said it was fine. Pregnancy was not the only reason though, I suffered side effects and wanted it out for multiple reasons.

But I talked to him about having another baby again the other night, and he wasn't so happy about the topic. Kind of just said he doesn't think he wants more(not sure)... why not just focus on Penelope(dd). And I was confused and kind of hurt because only a few months ago, he said he wanted another kid(he brought this up on his own) and we joked about getting my bc removed and possibly try. But we agreed to wait! So we did.

And now I think our daughter is at a good age, so I brought it up about trying... but he doesn't think he wants more kids all of the sudden.

So basically I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or has had a similar situation?

I'm really wanting to try to have a 2nd and I just feel hurt because this wasn't one way at a time and now I feel like I'm alone on this. And obviously, I don't want to force the Situation and him hate me for it.

I would bring up maybe NTNP, but its much healthier to wait until he is on board than lose your great steady relationship over baby fever, pour yourself into dd, and dont bring stress into the bedroom.
