Hi. My name is Sharon. I have 3 great kids and 3 angel babies. My pregnancy road has ranged the gammet. I've had a miscarriage, a normal pregnancy, a stillbirth, a blighted ovum, a pregnancy with preterm labor resulting in a 34wker who turned out fine, and a pregnancy ending in c-section due to a placental abruption occurring. We have made the decision to be done having children.

Some days I want more and feel sad that we most likely won't. I say most likely since we both still can have children but are timing DTD so as to not have children. This decision to "be done" makes me really sad sometimes...like I'm closing a chapter. Although it was stressful at times to be pregnant, there were also wonderful times and I'm grieving those good times.

My question to you ladies is "how do you deal with the decision to be completely done?" I'm just struggling a bit and need some perspective. Thanks for reading.

First of all, I am sorry for your losses. I have days that I am sad about it, but then I remind myself that being done is what is best for our family.
