Refusing to tempt fate


I am often teased about having another baby. Trying for a little girl. 
Yes. It would be lovely.
Yes. I have thought about it. A lot!
No. It will never happen. 
It doesn't matter how many times you suggest it.
Husband, says no for one thing.
And I know, deep down, that we are not game enough to tempt fate again.
I couldn't go there again.  I worried enough second time round.
That would be so much worse third time. I am more anxious now. I would be fearful for nine months again, until that baby was in my arms and checked closely!

I am also in a place where I know we have everything we need.  Life is getting easier. Master four is edging toward big school and my baby days are nearly gone.

I couldn't go back now. We are lucky to have two beautiful boys and I am thankful for that. 

So yes, it would be lovely. But no, I just can not tempt fate again.
