Depressed/Wanting to have another baby.

I had my tubes tied a few years ago and since I had a pos test earlier this year shortly followed by AF and a neg. test, I've been wanting another one. Just the couple of days from seeing that positive to getting AF made me want another one. Really bad. I know I should go to the dr but I'm scared of what they may have to say. We don't have the money to get a reversal. I guess we shouldn't have more kids if we can't afford a reversal. Has any one ever went through this? How did you handle it?

  • and the poor excuse of a father that helped in their creation was different/better than what it has turned out to be. find yourself first; then let everything else fall into place in due time!!! good luck, and God bless.
