I'm currently expecting baby #5 and both my husband and I are 100% sure that we want this one to be our last. I am scared to have my tubes tied because I've heard stories of it being so painful afterwards, which I expect being that it is major surgery. My problem isn't with me being in pain necessarily, but I am just so afraid that I won't be able to take care of my children the week or so after its done. I am their sole caregiver..my husband can't take time off work and I don't have any family around that could help out.
Our plan after baby #4 was for my husband to have a vasectomy but he never would go do it and I don't see that changing this time.
I don't want to be put on birth control and have a chance of getting pregnant again.
What would you do?? Also, anyone who has had their tubes tied, please share your experience with me!
