NO, I'm not testing. We're done. But, I have to say that when I passed the hpts in the grocery store this week, I felt a little twinge of sadness that I will never test again. I'll never see those two lines. I'll never feel another baby move inside me. It was weird.
Please understand. We are done. Max is perfect. So are Joey, Thomas, and Robbie! And, at my age, the risk is way too high to do it again. I love my four boys and I know we're done, but, I know I will forever miss the days of hpts and pg symptoms. (I can also say that I could have 6 more and still be saying this after it was all over ) I also know remember the fear that I experienced with a pg after a loss. It's just easier to forget after over 7 months of not being PG.
Just venting a little sadness. It's still true. Even after having 4 babies (and an angel), you still forget most of the pg symptoms, the yuckiness of bedrest, the pain of childbirth, etc...
Oh honey, I could've wrote that myself. I'm done, too. I had my tubes tied and there are days where that makes me incredibly sad. I'll never have all those wonderful feeling of being pg or holding another baby.....
It's funny that you posted this. We went to the Zoo last weekend and almost every other woman was pg. I was a bit sad that I wasn't pg, I'm one of those crazy ladies that loved being pg (aside of all the fears). We are not done, so I won't keep going.
I am right there with you. The logical side of me knows it should be done, I have 3 beautiful healthy children, DH and I are not as young as we used to be and the cost of a 4th would just put us over the edge.
But that does not stop my heart from aching everytime I see a tiny baby or a really pregnant mommy.
I Know how your feeling. I had my tubes tied 2 years ago. and Its sad when you see a pregnant lady, or those darn tests and to know that will never happen to you again, is just down right sad...I hope your feeling better, and when you feel like that, look at the blessings you have now! Thats what I do..
I'm sad, but, as I read the scary and sometimes sad posts of the mommies on our board, I know how blessed I am. Please do not think that there is a day that goes by that I don't pray for all of my JM mommies friends. I know that my Max was a miracle. DH was done...Our angel was an "oops" (but NEVER an oops in my heart...I wanted him/her from the day that I found out I was PG). Max coming is just icing on a beautiful cake of 4 boys. I am soooo lucky. but, I WILL continue to live vicariously through all of the TTCAL, TTC, and TTCOM mommies that I read about Thanks for being understanding ladies! xoxo
