Well, I can tell you our choice. I'm 20 weeks pregnant with a surprise 3rd pregnancy, and I also have somewhat difficult pregnancies, PLUS we have a special needs child and although this baby appears to be uneffected, we don't want to risk having another special needs child.
Hubby is getting a vasectomy this summer. If I end up with a c-section (unplanned) then I'll also get my tubes tied, we'll just be doubly protected that way. I didn't want to wait to see if I have a c-section for several reasons:
1. It's easier for hubby during the summer because he's a student and has a somewhat lighter load during the summer.
2. I want his procedure done and fully healed by the time the baby comes so he can help me. I can't imagine having a baby only a few weeks old AND having my husband laid up with a lifting restriction!
3. Like you, we'll meet our deductible this year, so it has to be this calendar year, and I didn't want to try to cram it in rushed, I wanted the time to ask the dr lots of questions and schedule the procedure for when it's convenient for us.
SO...that was the reasoning for us to do the vas before the baby is born, but we both agree that on the off chance that I do have a c-section, I'll still have a tubal.
