  • I have one, and for now that is all I want considering my situation. Although, if it was my perfect world I'd want one more (; and be working on it as we speak. In the future though maybe one more maybe two.

  • I have 3 right now and want at least 4. But my husband wants no more than 4 so I get one more and then he's getting "fixed".

  • Did he volunteer to get fixed? I can't imagine any guy suggesting it lol.

  • Actually, yes! That was a surprise to me too. But he refuses to let me get my tubes tied and would rather he had a vasectomy. Ok! Fine by me!

  • It' a lot safer and cheaper for him to get fixed. At dh's prior job the insurance paid for a vasectomy 100 %. Wish they had paid for dd's birth 100% lol

  • We have 2, and we're good with that. Oh, and lol, my dh did willingly have a vasectomy. We had 2 kids "back to back" right off the bat in our marriage. We were engaged when we found out I was pg, so we moved the wedding date up, then, 6 mos after our ds was born, I was pg with our dd, so at one point, we had more kids than wedding anniversaries... Both our kids were "birth control babies".

    Add to that, I had some serious complications during the deliveries, and the Dr strongly recommended we not keep having kids at the rate we were going. So, my dh and I had a plan, if I had a second c-section, I would get fixed, since they were already in there. If not, then he would, since it was outpatient for him.

    I had a v-bac, he had the surgery, and here we are, our youngest is now 16 1/2, and neither of us regret it :-)

  • I have 4, when we talked about kids...we were on'y going to have 2....then the need for a girl attacked me so we tried again, had boy #3. We thought we'd wait about 5 years and try again. Well, not even 2 years later I was prego with boy #4....we are not going to try for that girl after all...haha
