I can't really explain how we knew. It just felt right. With my first three, I just kept feeling like we weren't done yet. With the last one, we both knew that was it. (It may also be because I missed my epidural! lol)
I'm still not 100% convinced, so I decided not to schedule the tubal, and went on the pill as of today.
I don't like being pregnant, and with my second pregnancy I had a lot of complications and PTL, and then my son was born five weeks early ... So ... When I went in this morning, I was really torn on it though, so I played it safe and got on the pill, and my doc said to call him back if I change my mind and want that tubal after all.
It's funny because I never wanted any. After meeting my DH and he had a daughter I saw the way hey loved each other and I wanted that. Someone to love me through anything and I wanted to love that way also. Don't get me wrong. My Step daughter is the greatest but it's not the same. Well long story short we both told each other this would be it and I have no desire to have anymore. I love my son more than anything and I don't think I could love someone esle as much.
We had planned on only having 2 kids together (my angel son was not with my dh) but when we found out that #2 was going to be a 2nd girl we decided to try for a 3rd. We discussed it before I got preg with #3 and decided that either way we were done at 3.
I thought I might be done when we had two but DH had a nagging feeling we weren't complete, and I wasn't completely sure. #3 was a bit of a surprise but we were excited about having him, and after having him I am now 100% sure I couldn't handle any more. My personality doesn't really fit well with a lot of kids, so 3 for me is a full house!
We lost 2 babies in between the boys, the second loss was an ectopic, they tried to save the tube but the placenta grew back and the tube burst, I almost died on the table. DH said Quinn would be it, but I really wanted him to have a sibling. At my 6 week post op appt, where they told me that it would take 6 months to a year to get pg again, I was in telling them I was pregnant! That was Mark. I was on bedrest with both pregnancies as well.
DH said it's too stressful and risky having me pregnant, so we're done. I had my tubes tied, big mistake IMO, I should have let him get a vasectomy.
