You can tell me to shit up if you want!
:LOL I won't tell you to shit up or shut up
Well, I have to say, my OB is really very convinced that my life would be in danger if I were to concieve again, she said she hasn't ever seen worse scarring than mine, or such an opening (rupture beginning) and with the trouble she had getting Sean out(she said there just wasn't *room* to cut a large enough opening-bladder too far up on one side, and vessels on the other), things likely aren't going to get much better. I know it is a risk to believe something that grave, but the surgeon who assisted her agreed, and neither have ever told another patient not to have more children, so it's not as if this is something she is known for, YK?
I guess it comes down to the fact that it is simply not a risk *I* am willing to take. We are very young (DH and I), and we will consider adoption in the future (when we get some money
: ). I just feel strongly that my OB is right, and as a disclaimer she did say that if I get pregnant again (by mistake
) that she feels I would survive, just that the risks are so big to me and any baby I would carry, that if she were me, she would be happy with what she has, and be thankful to have gotten this far safely. I have to agree with that.
So, while I do want more children, I also feel strongly that my best course will be adoption (which is something I have always felt *called* to for lack of a better term).
I do appreciate your asking about that though. I guess it is something that dh and I are just not willing to risk, and my OB agrees, or the other way around. Really, after hearing what the OB said, Dh would never consider having more even if I wanted to.
