My little girl is my last. I am absolutely SURE of that, for MANY reasons. I've only ever wanted three kids, and she's my third. I'll have a 4 year old, a 2 year old, and a newborn in three months time. I've just finished theory in college and am on a 600 hour externship. My husband is losing his job on our daughter's fourth birthday and we'll live off his severance until it runs out in October, when I'll take over working. Anyway, I want to have my tubes tied after this pregnancy and ASAP after this pregnancy, preferably while I'm still in the hospital or shortly after, since my fertility returns shortly after giving birth. Well, I just talked to the obstetrician's office here to find out if they've received my referral yet and they said they had but they can't get me an appointment until April, and it'll be another 3 months after that before they can even get me in. Not only that, but they're not sure if they want to perform that procedure on a woman my age!! I feel like I'm being treated like a child who can't make a decision for myself based on what's best for me and my family. I'll be 25 years old when I have the baby, I'll have 3 kids under 4, one of them has special needs. My family is going to depend on me for financial support in a few short months. I know my family is complete, and I'm ready to start on my career. My husband did have a vasectomy when our son was 5 weeks old, but we found out this past August that it failed. What the hell do I do? This is outrageous?!
