  • No... we are done with three, but we were done with three before the economy tanked! I wish dh would get his butt in gear and actually get the vasectomy done though!

  • It has not changed our plans but by husband has several OBGYN offices as clients and he said this week that they are less busy by about 20% and requests for birth control usage is way up.

  • I don't know if we had any plans to do so anyway, but now we definitely won't be. At least not unless something major changes in the next year or two; then we might consider one more child. Probably not though--we'll just get another cat :)

  • No...DH had a vasectomy 2 1/2 yrs ago after baby no 4. Its the best thing and I highly recommend it for permanent birth control.

  • No, were not doing so bad. We do plan on having another child next year and if things are the way they are now for us we will continue our plans. If not, than we will wait a little longer.

  • I will have to have my DH read this article. We don't have plans for any more children, and frankly I am sick of having to take care of the BC. If only they could do it as a house call, he would have no way out. :o)

  • No, we always said that we were going to have two and we have been blessed with two wonderful sons. We have discussed the possibility of a third child but we just don't think we can do without sleep anymore than we already are.
