When we first talked about having a baby, we both agreed that we would only try for one. Then, after Betsy was born, I had a really hard time adjusting to having a newborn.....we had some marriage issues.....I think I had PPD (trust me, it went well beyond the baby blues).....and I had to have an emergency c-section (and was told that any future children would be C-sections too). So given all of that, I've accepted that we're only having one (even though there's a part of me that would like to try again). However, like some of you, we haven't done anything to permanently ensure that Betsy will be an only child, so I guess our decision isn't really final!
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!

I just knew that 4 was the perfect number for us. We thought at one point we were done after #3, but we never did anything permanent. Then we had a surprise baby that I m/c but it made us realize that we did want another baby. So we conceived #4 and we both just knew he would complete our family. I had a tubal with my c/s. It was a difficult pregnancy, preterm delivery and even before all of that, I knew we were done. IDK, there was just a feeling of completeness.

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!
