DH is having his vasectomy on Dec 28. I am so sad about this. I cried when he called to tell me he had it scheduled. We want to get it before the end of the year since we have already met our deductible. This means it really is final. As much as I know I don't want to risk having another baby I can't help but think I would have a fourth had I been able to have vaginal deliveries. I have always been at peace with my c-sections, but now I am thinking it has prevented me from having more kids. I know God has a plan for me and I know I probably can't even handle more kids, but the final step is making me pretty sad right now.

it's normal to feel sad, IMO. I hope you will come to peace with it when the appointment rolls around....

I'm sorry you're feeling emotional! Even though I am at peace with us being done, I still find myself a little sad about closing this chapter, never TTC or getting pregnant again. Our OB actually recommended we bank some sperm when DH does his vasectomy just to give us a back up for a few years in case something changes. I'm not sure we'll do it, but it WOULD be nice to know you had the option if you changed your mind. I'm sure it must be hard knowing that things might have been different if you had had vaginal deliveries. But you're right, God has a perfect plan. HUGS!

You haven't considered another form of birth control opposed to the vasectomy, it seems like you're not 100% about it.

I'm sorry Rachel. I would be sad too . Sending hugs!!

Michelle if I remember right her ob advised her to be done with babies because her uterus wouldn't be able to handle another pregnancy...

You're right Jill. My uterus was very thin this time. They even put a stitch in it. I have a greater risk of uteten rupture if I did get pregnant. That is a risk I can't take with having three kids already. I am just not ready to make things final. This is our plan so I need to find a way to accept it.

The same here. DH had his vasectomy in July. It's been a little sad watching William grown up and I wish he could stay little forever. The end is bittersweet. Maybe try and start focusing on all the fun stuff you'll get to do as a family with no more littles to worry about.
