No more babies...

My doctor told me some things they hadn't told me at the time of delivery. It turns out I have a hole in my uterus. Basically it means I can't risk having anymore children. She said it's a miracle I made it through this pregnancy without major complications. If I'd been able to give birth naturally I probably would have had severe internal bleeding and God only knows what might have happened with Sean. I suspected he would be my last... I'm of "advanced maternal age" at the ripe old age of 36 but I still thought maybe.... According to her, I shouldn't even think about it. I'm now trying to talk DH into a vasectomy so there's no chance of slipping through the birth control.

Sorry to hear that, unless this was your last anyways then yeah just be careful not to get pregnant again. You're health is the most important. But thank God this last pregnancy went well Smile

Yikes. Yeah, better to listen to the docs. My DH is planning to get a vasectomy, so Kellen will be our last as well.

My SO is also getting a vasectomy so Gideon is my last. I'm kind of sad. I always said if my second was a boy I was done cause I always just wanted one of each but the thought of never getting to carry a baby inside me ever again kills me.

it bothers me too. I mean I kind of figured after being so sick and the bed rest and the pain that I wouldn't go through it again but to be permanently done.... it just makes me kind of sad.

{{{HUGS}}} Amaris is our last and even though I'm okay with it, the idea of permanency of it is a little sad.

I choose to not have anymore either at my c-section, but sometimes I'm really sad I will never have that experience again - it's the right decision because of the twins, but I love pregnancy.

We are done as well. We talked about only two but I felt there was a chance for more. However being my body seems to not like being pregnant and having two preemies it was highly suggested no more. It saddens me but I couldn't do bedrest again, a cerclage again and god forbid another NICU stay. Two NICU stays were way to much
