Thanks ladies! Jenn, like you, we've made the decision to stop but haven't done anything permanent to ensure that Betsy will be an only child.

I've been struggling with my decision because there's a part of me that would like to try for another. However, there were a lot of issues that developed after her birth (some PPD, marriage issues, C-section recovery) and even after a year, I just don't think I could go through all of that again plus raise a toddler. The pain of everything is still too fresh and raw.

I always told myself that if God blessed me with a child, that I would be happy with just one -- and don't get me wrong, I am. Betsy is an adorable and precious little girl -- she's my absolute world and I love her with all of my heart. And if she is my only child, then I will be happy with that -- I am so incredibly lucky to have her in my life.
