DS was born with a heart defect that was undetected until he was 2 weeks old. After going through open heart surgery and a CVICU stay (which still continues) the thought of having another child horrifies me. I feel completely convinced that I cannot get pregnant again. I'm not sure if it is just because I'm still dealing with the situation right now or just because I am truly done. I don't think I could even be intimate with DH again until he has a vasectomy. Are these thoughts normal? Did anyone else go through this? Did you end up changing your mind? I feel like the stress I'd experience during pregnancy would be too much and I'd never be able to relax enough to have a healthy pregnancy.
