I'm 34 and have a 9 mo son. He’s a DE child, after years of struggling. He is the light of our life and we love him dearly. He has a very easy going temperament. Only one issue we have is early waking!
My husband has chronic fatigue and I suffered really badly with morning sickness for 8 months. I have found it so hard to transition from independent career woman to mummy.
I look at my son and know he would be delighted with a sibling. But I'm scared of the effect another child would have on our lives. My husband can just about cope with his job. And majority of house and childcare falls to me!! Also our marriage has suffered since he came along. My husband has so little energy.. I'm wondering if we should stop at 1 and enjoy the wonderful little soul that we have. Or whether I will really regret not having another. Such mixed feelings. Though we’ve still got much time but frankly saying I’m afraid about my health worsening conditions. And would we get a horror?!!
Our doc at biotexcom clinic who performed ivf cycles, told us not to wait too long with the decision as for baby#2 due to my health conditions (DH is OK, fortunately.), my eggs have already lost their quality, so we need donor ones again. But I feel like I’m losing strength and with every other day it becomes harder to do the chores…
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Hugs xx
