Hi :) I'm not really sure where else to share this, but since it applies in a way, I thought I'd share it here. I just need to share it. DH and I have been married almost 7 years. We have 4 children, though none together. We have had two early miscarriages, and then an unexplained still birth at 39 weeks. That was over three years ago, and finally, tonight, we agreed that we would not try again. Dh is going to call Monday and make an appointment for a vasectomy. We've had the counseling, preliminary appointment, etc, so he can go ahead and have it done. A part of me is relieved that we've finally reached a permanent choice, but a part me is devastated that I'll never have my husband's child. I love our children, don't get me wrong, we have my bio son, dh's bio son, and then our niece and nephew, and they are 11, 14, 15, and 16, so a baby wouldn't fit in too well anyway, we just aren't in a baby stage, but still. It hurts to know that it isn't going to happen. Has anyone else been in a situation like this? Any kind words of advice?
*****Thank you all for your advice and kind words. DH and I have spent the last few days discussing it more, and this morning, he called and made the appointment. I am at peace with this decision, not exactly happy, but at peace, and I know it is the right one. Thanks again :)
