My husband agreed to try for another baby, but now he's changed his mind

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband agreed to try for another baby, yet when I told him I was ovulating, he reached for the condoms.

Our daughter is only six months old, but the doctor said it was OK for me to conceive again.

I’m 36 and my husband is 38. We’ve been married for five years.

I loved being pregnant, and I want to have my kids close together, so they will be good friends. I thought my husband understood and wanted that too.

Now he’s saying it’s too soon, and we won’t be able to cope with two tiny children.

All I want is another baby.

I’m getting on a bit and I’m worried if I leave it too long to get pregnant again, we won’t ever complete our family.

DEIDRE SAYS: You’re listening to your heart, while your husband is thinking more practically.

Having two children so close together is extremely hard work.

You need to have your husband on board with this or it will cause problems in your marriage.

Why not wait a few more months and then discuss the idea again. Explain you are concerned about your fertility and don’t want to wait too long.
