Baby Logan is looking good. His heartbeat was 155 and he is measuring at 24 weeks instead of 23. Guess he's a good eater. Anyways, the dr. talked to me about what kind of birth control we are going to do after Logan is born. He said that he doesn't think that we should try again. He said I've had 3 very hard pregnancies and really need to consider it. I kinda wanted another but understand his point of view. I'm really torn and not real sure what to do. I've been upset all day thinking about it and what to do.

Yay! I'm glad he looks so good.

As for the birth control, why is it a decision that needs to be made now of all times? Go with something that isn't permanent, and later, if you decide permanent steps need to be taken, then do so. But that's so far down the road! You haven't even had Logan yet, why do you need to be making decisions like that? If I were you, I'd not make a permanent decision until he's several months old.

We talked alot last night and dh and I both agree on the same thing. We are not going to decide until after Logan is here. It's not like I get pregnant on the drop of a dime. It has always taken years to conceive our babies. So we are going to just wait and see. Plus it's not like all pregnancies are the same, right? Maybe the next one would be a breeze.

I'm surprised a doctor would say that NOW of all times. He's not making your PG any easier by brining that up! I'm glad you're going to wait to decide. Every pregnancy is different. And, after you've had your baby and you've had time to think, the decision will come to you.
I'm so glad to hear that Logan is doing well. And, that baby is growing fast. Soon he'll be here and you'll be holding him. Soooo exciting. Keep growing little Logan!

I agree with the girls, I don't get why he would bring that up, my doc did not talked to me until my first appointment after having Alex. You can decide what to do after Logan is here, I decided for a very low dosage of birth control because I'm BF, but it's not up to your doctor to tell what to do, it's up to you.
