Thank you so much Mamas for your kind replies, I'm feeling a little bit better now, still a little sad that it's almost over, and worried about the baby, especially knowing that I'll constantly be under a microscope because I have a physical disability. I think that bugs me more than anything that people think that because of only having one hand I'll be a bad parent who wont be able to do things "properly" (I was 4 when I cloth diapered my baby brother, and that was with flats and pins and he never received any stabs.)
As for the vasectomy, before I got pregnant Ken and I agreed to only have 1. He was dead set against having children at all when we first got together, so the fact that he changed his mind and wanted a baby with me is a miracle in itself. After thinking it through, I've decided that I will be happy with one, most of my reasons are selfish, I've been dying for more tattoo work and I already have to wait until the baby is done nursing before I can get any new modifications, and since I'm going to let her lead the way as far as weening goes, who knows how long it'll be.
Even though my journey through pregnancy is almost over, I'm looking forward to the start of my new journey as a mother, and being a mom is something I can have forever.
