Not that I'll want more children, just 1 more thing to recover from & hurt while caring for a newborn & a then 6 year old. Though, when IS a good time?! I've got to do some research, talk to all my doctors, & make sure it's the best option. I can't use an IUD because my uterus shape makes complications & dislodging likely. Hormonal birth controls mess me up badly. Sponges, caps, diaphragms fail too often. And I don't trust condoms since there s so much room for human (ok, MALE) error. Sooo...what other options do I have?!

What are you thinking & why? Any experiences to share?
I would like to get my tubes tied, but for some strange reason my insurance doesn't cover it - however it covers SO's v. Which doesn't help me much if we break up - but I really feel like getting my tubes tied is the best option. I do not want anymore!!!

But my mom had her tubes tied & chopped many years ago - she never had issues. She got it done while having my brother via c-section.

Tying my tubes really scares me too, but I think it will be worth it. I didn't want the one I am pregnant with now, but they wouldn't tie me after my last because I was too young...

A part of me doesn't want to, but that part can shove it! lol
SO how I feel!!!
