I was told by one woman, but you couldn't trust her as far as you could throw her. I told her DH to get a paternity test.

How many kids do you have? People act like I'm a crazy person because I have four. My husband is getting a vasectomy and I'm up in the air about. Sometimes to the point of tears.

I have 3 living children and hoping for more. I don't care what people think. It's sad that our society has such a bad attitude towards big families but we do live in a culture of death so I guess it's not surprising. I'm morally opposed to sterilization so it's out of the question for me and dh. There's a reason it brings you to tears -- truth is written on your heart.

Ok, you are making completely unfair assumptions.  We have 2 kids, my hub had a vasectomy, I had a hysterectomy.  The best choice we made was to NOT have any more children.  Not because we are opposed to big families, I had wanted 4 kids.  But pregnancy was NOT good for me, neither was post partum AND our oldest was born with congenital heart defects, kidney defects oh and yea CANCER.  So if you are opposed to birth control GREAT.  But dont' make such negative assumption about those of us that don't want or need big families.  It's really not fair.

You are mistaken. I haven't made any negative assumptions about others. Also, I don believe that everyone needs to have a big family. There are plenty of reasons to refrain from conceiving however this never makes it morally ok to be sterilized.
