just a hypothetical question......

My sister and I got on this topic the other day.

If you had 2 kids and then were infertile for whatever reason after those 2, would you go through any kinds of lengths to conceive again? (like fertility drugs, IVF) or would you come to terms with it (eventually).

Would you adopt?

I'd probably just be like okay, thats what I get. I never was the woman who really wanted a huge family, they just kept coming...lol Not sure if I'd adopt. maybe, maybe not.

Most likely just be thankful for the 2 I had and then continue NTNP and see what happens. If the infertility was permanent, I would just come to terms......maybe adopt???? Would discuss with dh.

I'd probably adopt, it's something I have always thought about.

I would have probably just accepted it, especially if we'd had one of each.

I would just accept it. Because my husband was a horrible young adult it is going to take a lot of steps if we want to adopt any children. Adoption agencies don't want to deal with you if you have a felony... even when it's 20 years ago (in March)

I would love to foster children. I probably still will one day when my own children are grown. But I would have just started sooner if I only had two bio children.

Really? no adopting if you have old felonies? I guess I should have known. My dh has a 16 year old felony and couldn't get hired at a job because of it, a silly job too.

I would just accept it. I have never been a fan of invasive fertility treatments. I think adoption is a wonderful option for other people, but I dont want the hassle. See, I really like things to be easy, simple and preferably cheap. If a child was dropped in my lap, though, I would gladly take him in.

I wouldn't do fertility treatments. We would likely adopt as many kids as we could afford.

I actually have been there. I had one child. My hubby had 2 from his first wife. We wanted more. We tried for 3 years and couldn't. We decided to go the fertility meds route. It was really important to me to have another child. I wanted to go through the pregnancy and childbirth experience again And I wanted a child who was biologically a part of me and my husband.

I would adopt for sure. We have 4 and are in the process of adopting so we just would've gone for it sooner. We've actually been in the process( raising money) since before we got pregnant with #4.

I kinda faced this already but was considered infertile. I have done fertility treatments for all my children including IVF and FET. I probably wouldn't do those again because I have a houseful but I did after my second child I went back for FET.

The desire for a child doesn't stop because there is an issue getting pregnant at least not for me.

After 9yrs of trying I am finally pregnant with #2, this is pregnancy 13 and I have 1daughter, DH has one son and our third is neither of ours, he is my DSS's brother, same mom dif. dad. And we have basically had full custody of him since he was 4months old..so basically adopted. And now we are having one of our own.
If I can and it doesnt take 9more years I would LOVE another...but if not we will def. adopt!!

We would probably adopt. We've always been open to adoption anyway and have seriously thought about it several times. I can't see myself doing IVF or any of that stuff. I've seen what friends have gone through, and with two bio kids I just don't think I would. Maybe I would do Clomid or something, but even that can have some crazy side effects.

We actually were in the process of adoption when we had 4 kids. We had our homestudy done and were getting paperwork ready to go overseas. But than I found out I was pg with number 5, we put it on hold. One day we hope to complete the process, but with the amount of paperwork and stuff required, I don't know if we'd have the time to do it. And than there's the $30,000 part.
