I am so scared. And I definitely cried a lot when I found out I was pregnant. My husband and I have been together for five years now. We got married 2 1/2 years ago. He's very supportive so it brings me some comfort. However he's at work all day every day. I just don't know how I'm going to be able to handle three babies all at once. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Idk about OP, but 30 is my cut off, too. If I have a baby at 30, by the time he/she is 18 I'll be 48 and my husand will be retired so we can enjoy vacations! Hahahaha.

Quoting gee18: Lol girl 30 is still young

Quoting sammiespvx3: Yes. We wanted to have two children back to back at a young age. I do not want to be 30 raising a baby again. Or two years down the road have to do all the baby stuff all over again.



Quoting shaunaleigh418:

Question: If pull out always worked for you, were your other two children planned?

20 months and 9 months.

30 is my cut off, too. How old are your children?

Aww, I wish! Lol. Just really think about if you are sure you wanna take the permanent route right now. You still have 10 years before you're 30 and you might change your mind later on.

Sorry...lol. I can be quite sarcastic. It's not mean spirited though :) Seriously, you'll be okay, though. If you think stressful thoughts, you're gonna be stressed. That's not good for baby. Just try to relax...you got this!

Quoting sammiespvx3: That's very comforting, except for the sarcasm. Lol. I really have all these fragile emotions right now, I almost feel ashamed or something. So when I hear that it has happened to other people it makes me feel like I'm not alone, and maybe it will be okay.



Quoting melissa632: Nope. It's NEVER happened to anyone else. You're the first :/











I had 3 by 19. Number 4 came when I was 21. You'll be fine.

No I have only had two planned pregnancies and I have never been on BC. Using Natural Family Methods have worked for me. I have two and don't want a third anytime in the near future.

Yeah, I will make sure. Vasectomies are reversible. But I really really don't think we'll want it. Maybe I'll adopt or something, but probably not.

Just keep in mind the reversals don't always work. Congratulations and good luck with your third bundle of joy! It'll have its rough moments but you'll get through.

I can understand that but I guess I see things differently, I'm working and going to school and a single mom. I will not have anymore kids until I finish my career.

Well, you're certainly never going to be bored.

 Well you will be busy but as long as you can afford it, I'm sure you'll be fine. I always wanted to be done by 30 too. I have a 5 year old and I'm 28 and having my second in October. I think I'm done after that :) Congratulations. Even unplanned, it's a blessing.
