Last baby? Is anyone else sad?


I am about to have baby #4 and all within about 4 years - how did this phase of my life end so soon?? Don't ge tme wrong, I am looking forward to things now like watching them grow up, family trips... wine !

My husband is going for his vasectomy this coming week and it is all... so final! I am getting more anxious by the day but know we really don't want anymore children but now the possibility will be truly gone!

Anyone else there? How are you/did you cope??

I am probably on my last pregnancy, too. I am devastated. I have 4 kids already. My oldest just turned 5. I am ready to move on and do fun family things. I'm taking the kids to Disney World in the fall. I'm ready to have my body to myself. But I'm not ready to not have any more babies. I'm getting an IUD put in, so I can decide at some point that I want another, but I already have a prolapse and certainly don't have any more seats at the dining table, since my elderly parents live with me.

This will be our second and last baby and I am not sad about it at all! I absolutely hate being pregnant so I am happy to never have to put my body through pregnancy again.

I've just had my last baby. Hubby was booked in for his vasectomy referral but missed the appt and I don't really want him to make another- as you say, it seems to final, and whilst I think I'm ok with Nellie being my last, I'm not ok with having the choice taken away from me. I feel so sad about never being pregnant again or having a brand new baby plonked screaming on my chest x

This is our last. We originally only wanted 2 so TTC and having a 3rd wasn't something we had originally planned at all. But we are very done. DH is getting a vasectomy soon. I am a little sad. I will miss the excitement of pregnancies and newborn babies but it's not safe to have another nor do we want one.

It's definitely bittersweet though.

I am on my 2nd and final pregnancy. We only wanted 2 and i really dont like being pregnant so im happy to be done. If we choose to have more in the future we can adopt. Lol
We have zero plans to make any permanent decisions. We will just play smart for many years to come 😁

I am on my 3rd pregnancy, but this is my hubby's second. He only wanted two babies, so this is our last. But we decided to vasectomy or tubes being tied. Too final of an option.

I feel the same way.. this is my fifth.. but my husbands third.. we didn't try for this baby... it was a complete shock and surprise.. while I'm ok with being done if my husband is, I don't want the option taken from me..
my husband went into my appointment with me on Wednesday and the dr asked what we will do for birth control and if we are done so they can schedule a tubal.. I looked at him and told her that we didn't want anything permanent... he likes the idea of if it happens, it happens... I think I'm ok with that.. but I'm also ok with being done..

This baby is planned to be our last. DH wants to get the snip after this. He was actually going to make an appointment but I told him no, wait and make sure that this baby is going to be healthy, but in reality it isn't just that alone. I just feel so torn about never being pregnant again. Of course I'd never admit that to him.
