I will never be pregnant again :(
So unless there is an oops, it looks like I'm never going to be pregnant again and never going to give birth again. I think I'm mostly through it now, but there were a couple of weeks of mourning the peaceful birth experience I so wanted to have. And, not that I regret having either of my little boys, but I think I will always miss just a little bit having a daughter.
I had thought my son would be the last little one for us, I felt sad when I went into labor with him. This pregnancy has felt like such a blessing. But I know we are done after this one, so I am hoping the sadness is a little less this time. I did not feel done after his birth.
But pregnancy doesn't agree with me!!
For those considering a vasectomy - google the University of Chicago's study on vasectomy and dementia. Scary stuff.
We're looking at other options, because DH already has family risk factors for dementia.
DH and I both feel happy with our decision about the big V.
I did, otoh, really mean it when I said during labor that I was never doing this again.
how are we all feeling now? anyone changed their/dh's mind? i felt so very done. and we can NOT afford to support another babe an still maintain the standard of living we have set for our kids (we go without n work our butts off to send our son to private school, and will do with madison too but at £10,000+ a yr each we really cant add to it lol)
lol theres always a but...
my girl is SO perfect and my boy is my pride n joy it's really hard to not secretly want babies... lots of babies...hundreds...all in my bed...all over me! cuddles galore!
i think i could ignore the financial hurdles.... but not the prospect of a third cs. i just cant do that. the scarring n recovery. ack no thanks
10 weeks later and we're still done, and honestly, i'm not sad about it. i've had 7 pregnancies, 3 of which resulted in my 3 wonderful rainbow babies. and now i am done. i experienced birth 3 times, the last one being and awesome homebirth and now i am ready to move on to the next stage of our life. ready and excited! i'm sure there will be times that i'll miss having a tiny babe around but i'm also sure it will be a fleeting feeling. our family is complete
