Hello, I've been lurking for a few days and decided to introduce myself. I've been most impressed with the friendly tone of this forum!
My name is Diane. I am 36 years old, and have 3 wonderful children. Upon the birth of my 3rd child, via c-section, I elected to have a tubal ligation. That was on 2/1/08, and I've regretted the decision since. My dh is insisting on stopping at 3 kids. Don't get me wrong, we're very overwhelmed some days. We have a 5, 3, and 1 year old. But, it's slowly getting easier as each child gets older.
As I read many of your stories, I can identify so much with wanting a large family. Maybe there's some psychological reason because I was an only child growing up? I don't know, only that I am the happiest with my family. I am undergoing a tubal reversal, for many reasons. I do suffer extremely severe periods after the tubal, as well as horrific mood swings. Upon discussion with my dh, we've agreed to go the reversal. That way, the door will be "open" if he changes his heart and mind down the road regarding #4. If not, that's fine. I'll still feel better having my female system in "working" order.
Anyway, I'm happy to meet you and look forward to your support and advice!
