  • If YOU and your DH are ready to be done, why does anyone elses opinion matter? I'm having mine done in January, I'm due with number 3 in December. We would have had them done after number 2 if we could have...

    Seriously 6 kids is more than enough for anyone, no one can fault you for wanting to be done. If you want to be done, have them tied. If not, try for number 7, but really, I say be happy with what you have.

  • well are you guys done..If it was me I would have him get a vasectomy because between you both you have 6 kids. I have 3 and my SO had a vasectomy. But you guys should dicsuss if you are done and the procedure.

  • I got 10 myself plus a step child and a godchild and 3 nephews we got custody over ( had 8 nphews but 5 moved out)! I love them all and wouldnt change it for the world! i dont have my tubes tied because my DH and I are open to more children ( we arent trying but if it happens it happens) so its all up to you and your SO, if you love kids and see more in the future then i wouldnt. but if you cant handle any morethen go for it,

  • This is all between you and your Husband.. Outside of this Family should not come involved in this. I had mine tied after my youngest, was born. ( she turned 21 today) But i did it becuasemy mom got involved.. after i had it done, then i started to regret it. ( depression got worse then what it was) Becareful and be ready.

  • I would STRONGLY SUGGEST that you wiat to have anything permanant done. My Husband and I had a vasectomy before we were ready and we had to pay for a reversal out of of own pocket. Thankfully, God has blessed us again and we are pregnant with our first reversal baby. This is not something to take lightly. Please take the time to think about it.
