And I am having mixed feelings. The hospital finally called today with a date for my dh's vasectomy. Only three weeks away. We haven't been using any birth control since July and before that it was only the pullout method so there was always a chance....I guess I will be happy not to always be wondering and this really is for the best for us. I really feel like even if I had a hundred babies I would always want just one more. Lol

It's ok if nobody responds to this. Just felt good to get it out smile.gif

My husband had a vasectomy three months ago, and our fourth is three weeks old. I'm having the same sort of issues. I REALLY don't want another - I HATE being pregnant, hate it hate it hate it, and I feel like a crappy mom the whole nine months because I feel awful physically.

 

But there's a little part of me that is sad. I'll never hold another one of my just-born babies? Never?

 

I think it's normal. I hope so anyway. DH would kill me if I asked him to get a reversal! :)

Nice to know I am not alone smile.gif. I would love to be pregnant and give birth again but I don't deal with sleep deprivation well at all. Oh well I am just rambling now....lol

Well we got a BFP today.  Exactly ten days after DH's vasectomy.  Crazy...

Oh my goodness! I'm not an overly religious person, but any time I hear about this happening I can't help but think "Well, God got in the last laugh there!" Hoping for a amazing sleeper this time around!

Yeah I am thinking I ovulated around the 4th and his surgery was on the 7th.  We DTD two days before and a couple days before that I think.  I actually didn't think I was ovulating at all these last months.  Apparently I was wrong....LOL

 

 

 

Thanks again everyone!

Congratulations!!!!!!! Oh I love stories like this!!!! I do believe God has His ways and that this little one you're expecting will be such a joy. :):) 


Super crunchy Mama to DS1, DS2, DD and wanting a bunch more!  We homeschool, bed share, homebirth and baby wear. We're attached, we only cloth diaper and we don't vax. There's a lot more to us than that, but it won't all fit.

Congratulations!  My 3rd baby came to be at a time when I really, really didn't want a pregnancy.  We used protection, but we experienced a technical malfunction which had NEVER occurred before.  After our fishing expedition, lol, I thought, "Just watch.  I'll end up pregnant."  Heaven help me if it wasn't but the next morning that I noticed my body was ovulating.  Sure enough....nine months later we had our baby!  I was actually really mad about it when I got the bfp, but he has been an incredible baby who has changed our lives so very, very much.  He is a true blessing to us.  I am certain your surprise will also be a huge blessing to you!!  heartbeat.gif
