that you should get your tubes tied or your dh should get a vasectomy? i hear it all the time, especially now that this is the fourth time ive been pregnant in five years. what are some of your "come backs"? i usually dont say anything other than its our life and we will do what we want and until you pay for our kids then mind your own but they still talk, especially family. my mom is the only family member to know about this little one just yet and in the two weeks she has known she has told me three times i "need" to get my tubes tied or we can just stop sleeping together. well excuse me..its our life, we live on our own, pay for our children and love them each the same so what does it matter if we have our third and final baby.

Are you pregnant vanessa?? i must of missed an update? Congratulations! when are you due?
I get the "DH needs a vasectomy" talk all the time, especially since Lucas came along and he is a boy.. got a boy and 2 girls so now we don't need to add to our family according to some people. Just the other week we were at MIL for her birthday and SIL pipes up with how stuart can get a vasectomy because they do them really "easily" now with a laser... i told her we want another baby first before we think about that!
No, I always get "the more the merrier" speech LoL. All my sibling are done (my 2 BILs got vasectomies and my SIL got her tubes tied) so, as my dad put it, I'm the only hope for more grandkids LoL. They already have 9 though and we think, on most days, that we're done, so...
Not usually...most of our family/friends are of the "quiver full" mentality...
My SIL who had a baby boy 2 weeks younger than Conlan, was just saying how she gets the "If you play with fire, you're going to get burned" comment all the time, and I just think that's the stupidest thing ever! I told her to tell them she doesn't feel burned! (she's not pregnant again btw, but should wait a little while due to medical reasons).
I don't get them often but I do get a few comments when they find out I have implanon which is good for 3 years. They tell us we have 3 years to decide if we want more. After the 3rd year, if you are not pregnant then one of you should get fixed.
Or i get I can't wait too much longer if i want a third. You don't want a big gap between the kids. How in the world do you know what I want... you don't...
