I took DH to his big V appointment yesterday. My dad came over in the morning to start watching the boys. We left for the city (1 hour away) about 10:30am. We got there and had lunch, then did our Costco run, went for smoothies at the mall and then headed to his appointment. We wanted enough time in case we got lost. They called us right when we pulled into the parking lot to see if he wanted to come in early. That cracked us up. We were 30 minutes early, but they got us right in (after paperwork).
I felt kinda bad for him. It was like I was taking my dog in to be fixed, only he actually had a BIG CLUE as to what was going to happen. DH said "I'm doing this for you." and I said "Well, for you, too, right?" Just wanting to make sure we were both on the same page. He said that he could have been done with 2 and he's happy with 3.
So, he went through with it. I'm kinda sad to think it's done and over with.. but I had a difficult pregnancy (not by medical standards, but bad morning sickness, utter exhaustion, weird thoraxic spasms that mimicked heart palpitations, etc) and I really don't think I could go through another delivery like that one. That was way too difficulty on my body. It's just strange that once you make the final arrangements you start to wonder "what if we are supposed to have another baby?!"
So my next Depo shot is due in May. Everything says 3 months and then verify with SA that it took, but they gave him a cup to bring a sample to the lab 6 weeks out. We are thinking that since my next shot is 2 months away, that we may just risk it that month. We both know I'm not fun to be around when I'm on hormones.
My first two babies I got AF back just after 8 months. But I wasn't on Depo then. We shall see. But unless God has other plans, we are officially done.
Just wanted to get that out of my system and I KNOW he didn't want me posting about it on FB.
