Listener email: 'I wonder if you or your listeners can help me – my husband and I have two daughters, 4 & 7 years of age–I know we are very lucky to have two healthy kids, and understand lots of couples struggle to conceive at all. However, I would just love a third child but my husband is adamant we are done. I am 39 next month and just really feel like I would love one more, I feel like he would actually be delighted if we had another and it would complete our little family, he is a super Dad! I have 5 siblings and my husband has 4 so we both grew up with lots of family around us, which is why I don’t know why he won’t come around – should I keep trying to talk him into it and get him on board?, or should I just respect his decision and accept it? What if we both regret it, or worse I resent him for not agreeing to it?' What do you think? Ciara hears from listeners
