I told DH tonight that we'd better not have an "oops" because I sold our baby swing, a good stack of our newborn clothes, and gave away the last of my maternity clothes over the weekend! The bassinet and baby bath are already long gone too. Gosh, it's so weird to be done. I have to admit, even though I am completely sure we won't try again, if there ever WAS an oops, we'd be excited. Since we take no chances, it would definitely be meant to be if it happened! DH still hasn't talked specific timeline for getting the big V. I'm guessing it will be sometime in the next year. We're both looking forward to tossing the condoms!
Sarah: I'll send you my stuff since I am done and my stuff are for girls and I am sure (if you were to have an oops) it will be a girl. Want to see if I'm right? On a more serious note, I need to start getting rid of my stuff too.
I am getting rid of all my stuff too! All of my friends are pregnant, so I'm just divying it up! DH got the big V in December, just hasn't gone back to make sure he's "shooting blanks." I really don't want an oops, but if God decided otherwise, we'd make it work, of course!
You ladies seem so young to be 100% sure its over.
I'm 34, DH is 38. The two miscarriages in between my boys were extremely emotionally and physically painful for me. I know myself well enough to know that if I were to go through more pregnancy losses in the quest for that potential 3rd child, it would emotionally devastate me. I'm not willing to go there. Yes, we would celebrate an accidental pregnancy, but we will never actively TTC again. The losses were just too hard.

Yeah, I am way too old to be having a baby again. Celebrating the big 40 this year! I don't feel old but they treated me like I was an aarp member with both pregnancies. Plus I really always wanted two. If there is an oops, we'll love and celebrate the child but doing as much as I can to prevent one
I really enjoy cleaning out the kids toys and clothes that they outgrow. I'm looking forward to getting rid out the stuff Melody has outgrown or doesn't use (Baby swing, Boppy, carseat #1, Bouncer..). But I'm too worried about a Oops baby so I'm keeping them for just a little while longer.
