I'm hoping dh goes to the doctor soon to be put on the waiting list for a vasectomy.
I'm done having babies because I can't deal with the worry and anxiety from pregnancy. I had 2 mc before Finn and a 17 week loss between Finn and Evie. I was hospitalized 2 times while pregnant with Evie and there was a while that we weren't sure she was going to make it here. I knew she was a little fighter, though. I had many complications with the placenta. I can't do that again.
Besides all that I feel like our family is complete. It feels whole
Hi, I'm Rachael (26) about to turn 27. OH is 25, DD Grace (5) and DS Matthew (2) 3 at the end of the month. We're done for financial reasons and space reasons. We have one of each and I'm happy with that I don't think I could cope with anymore. There's also the selfish reason of getting my life back on track career wise.
Every time I feel even the slightest bit broody I just remember the sleepless night, the nappies and everything else and it cancels out the cuteness lol.
Hi I am Julie ( 34) and DH (31) and LO (3) we are a small but complete family I had bad pregnancy and bad PND ( was admitted to a mother and baby unit) and we feel our family is complete, I struggle with psychosis depression and anxiety.
LO is our world, I would love another one ( I think) but DH has said no due to my MH so we are a complete family of 3, plus the cat!
Little bit scared I'm pregnant... I can't be. I'm sure of it but dh joked the other day are you sure you're not pregnant when I had a stomach ache. Since then I've had a sore lower back and yesterday something smelled sour to me that wasn't. We only dtd 3 or 4 times since Evie was born and used condoms every time! .
Hi I'm Vicki (26), OH (28) and we have 2 boys; Freddie is 2.5 years old and Finley is 8 months.
I think I'm sad to say we're done...most of the time...maybe I'm very conflicted about it all. On the practical side, 2 children works so well and similar to the previous poster who mentioned burgers I always tell people chocolate bars come in packs of 4 and I'm not giving mine up!! Also, when they are older and run in different directions we can pick a child each and leg it after them. However, I just don't feel complete, I don't want it all to be over. We'd always both agreed we only wanted 2 children and still agreed right up until our second was born, now I've changed my mind, I just love the chaos of it all! I know OH is right though and 2 is enough, I want to go to university and begin my career so any more babies would just push that further away.
Anyway, I'm really glad this area is here and to talk to people in similar positions!
^Lol, chocolate bars! I also think about the having a child each thing. I imagine weekends where one's got a swimming lesson and the other's got a football match. What happens if a third child has dance practice..?
So there's me (29) and my OH (30) Lily (7) Jack (6 in a few weeks) and Connor (2) we wasn't so sure we'd completed our family until a few months go when our eldest got very sick and we found out she had type 1 diabetes. With her diagnosis that pretty much killed any urges for another I had. My 3 I have now (especially Lily) need my attention. With Lily I'm basically her carer, so I'm the one who injects her 4+ times a day and finger pricks her up to 10 times I couldn't look after a newborn with constantly trying to keep on top of her levels.
