What is everyone planning to use for birth control?
I am pretty sure this will be our last () but I am still up in the air about what kind of birth control I want to use. I haven't used anything hormonal in 15 years and I am not really wanting to again, but I know that if I try NFP I will end up TTC the first time I know I am o'ing. I am not going to have my tubes tied or a vasectomy because I dont want something permanent.
My mw recommended the Merena IUD and Implanon. I think I have ruled out Implanon though.
Ed is supposed to get a V....was SUPPOSED to get it BEFORE! *blushing*
I'm going to talk to my ob about a tubal if I go c/sec, but I really, really DON'T want a c/s.

My vote is for abstinence....lmao
The pills make me feel ill and the thought of an IUD freaks me out. DH and I are okay with condoms as that is what we have used since DD was born so we will probably stay that route. I have told him that if I can carry these babies then he can endure a little snip and get a vasectomy. I am not going to undergo major surgery just because he is a wimp. Also he says he is 100% sure he is done having kids as this is his third baby. I, however, am not so sure. I guess I want to have my options open because you just never know.....
I have in my charts to get a tubal if I have a c-section.
If I have a vaginal birth, I'll probably get an rx for the minipill but I don't know if I'll take it. It is just going to hold us over until DH gets the big v. The plan is for him to get a consult while I am on maternity leave and then go in for the procedure in the summer so that my parents can take Nicholas that week (my dad is retired and mom works with the schools). I'll probably take 2-3 days sick time to take care of Emily and DH.
I have been thinking about this too. I am really freaked out about IUD. I have a friend who had the Mirena and it grew into her uterus and she had to have it surgically removed. Since we are planning to have one more...and soon...I might just opt for the pill until we are ready for baby number 2 and then hopefully talk DH into a V after that.
