If This Is Your Last Baby

What do you plan on doing to prevent any more?
How do you feel about it?

Me..DH is getting snipped and I am really bittersweet about it. Some days I feel awesome about it and other days the realization that I will never experience this again hits me and sends me into a sobbing mess.

For us DH is getting snipped unless I have to have c-section, then we figure they are already in so it might as well be me. I am very at peace with our decision this is our second child and will put us with one boy and one girl.

I am unsure of what we will do. My husband would have gotten the big V already if I let him. He is set on 3 kids and doesn't want anymore. My thing is he is still only in his 20s (he is 28 ) and I think that is too early to make a decision like that. If something happened to me in the next 5 years and he remarried I told him his new wife would probably want at least one kid together and not have to deal with a vasectomy reversal. Of course he thinks I am nuts for thinking this way but seriously I think he needs to be near 35 before the V. So anyway we will probably do condoms/natural family planning until I am done nursing (I plan to nurse for 2 years). I might agree to the Nuva ring after nursing is over (I used this in the past and liked it). I would rather not be on birth control but if it helps him not to get a vasectomy then I might just agree to it. Plus even though he is so set on three I can't help but think what if in a few years we wanted another? I would love 4 kids so I would be all about it but I don't think it will happen which makes me sad. I cannot believe this chapter (pregnancy/infant) in my life will end! It makes me emotional thinking about it.

I am also 27 Smile I have wanted babies my whole life and enjoy pregnancy/birth/babies so much that I will feel kind of lost without it. It is like all my friends are just now starting to have kids and I will feel out of the loop when they are pregnant and I am all done. My mom says maybe if I come far enough away from it then I will be happy to be out of this stage. I just don't see it! I could so be a Michelle Duggar! Smile

I think this should be our last. I love being pregnant, hubby loves me being pregnant. Hubby wants at least one more with his limit being 5. :eek:

I was one and done at first. Then I got baby fever when I knew how hard to was going to be to have another haha. DH says he knows Ill change my mind, so we will see. I always wanted a big family, then after my first god awful birth I was finished. lol I think this birth with determine any future children.
