I am getting pressure from my dear sweet mother-in-law to have another child. My husband & I have a 6 year old daughter and a 3 year old daughter, and they are the only grandchildren to my parents and my husband's parents. So of course, they want more!! I am 28, and my husband is soon to be 31. We have thought about having another, and we both say that it would be nice to have a boy, but honestly we are very content with what we have. I would be happy either way, and I know my husband would be too. The next thing we thing about is money. If it was based on money alone, we would not have another one. We have been working hard to get out of debt (student loans, credit cards, etc.) and we are SO close! To think about having another baby, makes us really think we will go back into debt, and that is not what either of us want. So... we are just confused...

I'm certainly not one to think about money on this one as my top reason. However, my MIL is for SURE not my top reason. You gotta do what will make YOU happy.

You certainly need to do what makes you guys happy, and what makes sense for YOU. End of the day your MIL isn't the one who will be paying for a new baby, nor will she be the one getting up 50 times a night

My MIL is doing the same thing. Stressing us about another grandchild when she knows that DH and I planned well in advance that we were only having one. One is enough for us lol. I say do what YOU both want to do.

I agree, this is something that is between you and your DH. No one else. You have to do what is best for you and your family
