It has always been my husband pushing that he doesn't want more. Our 4th was agreed to be our last, but he was supposed to get snipped last December and didn't. Well, here we are again. I am terrible at taking birth control pills and had previously been on NuvaRing, but I can't be on that when I'm nursing. I've told him that if he doesn't want anymore, then HE needs to get snipped. I will have gone through labor 5 times, and I don't feel that I should have to do any more to "fix" the problem. ;-)

However, I do understand his concern. Our 4th was a particularly difficult labor and delivery, but I was induced early, and I really think neither she nor I were ready. It's the most difficult labor and delivery I've ever had, and she was born not breathing. I think my husband thought he was going to lose us both, and he can't stand that thought. Again, though, it's in his court to get snipped. I encouraged him to do it while I'm still pregnant this time, if that's what he wants.
