To have more or not!

Question for you mom's.

Lets say you have 3 kids and after you last one you are told not to have anymore by your doctor because
1) you have a disease that can worse at any time.
2) other pregnancy and labor could kill you.

Would you take the risk and have more kids? Is it selfish to have more?

  • I think it is selfish because if you have been told it could kill you why would you want to leave your child without the chance of ever having a mother? it"s obviously God way of saying your done. Like me i don"t want more, but if i ever do i can't i could bleed to death from being a bleeder, i know when enough is enough

  • I wouldn't have more. I would be asking my doctor if he/she could take my stuff out so I don't get pregnant on accident either. I have kids that I need to worry about more than satisfying my wanting to have more kids.

  • if there was a chance that i would leave my children motherless if i had another baby, then no, i would not do it. i would however seek out alternative forms of medicine for my illness, a homeopath, naturopath, chiropractor, accupuncturist...any one i could find with a different point of view.

  • I think, if its not you, then you probably don't know the whole situation. After I had my third the Drs. told me that I probably shouldn't have any more and that another pregnancy could be risky for me.   Well, I recently had my 4th child, and the whole pregnancy, delivery, and recovery went great!
