Since I have a boy and I'm having a girl I should be done having kids. . .And according to my family I should get "fixed"! I didn't realize that there was a rule that you could only have one kid of each gender. . .They look at me like I'm crazy when I say I want atleast 3 kids. I mean come on people I'm only 21 don't you think that's a little young to be getting "fixed" if you want more kids!?!?!?

Some people need to mind their own businesses esp. when it comes to personal decisions.  Congrats on the girl!

I totally agree!!!  I hate when people do that!  If you feel that you are going to want more babies then I wouldnt listen to them..  I cant imagine how it would be a few years down the road and wanting another but having to have surgery to do it..  Stay strong... :)

 if you WANT more kids then don't get fixed. Simple. I'm 21 and pregnant with my LAST!!! I have a girl and this one is a boy; but even if this one was another girl I would STILL be done lol. More power to ya.

I don't understand it when someones family says that to them either.

 Besides, most doctors wont tie your tubes until you're 25 or have at least 4 kids.

Its so silly but welcome to the 21st century where people focus more on materialism and monetary wealth then wealth of family. Regardless if you want more kids or not, getting fixed is your personal and private decision.

Advise everyone else to mind their business!

 You're done having LOs when your done not cuz someone else says so. I have 3 boys and everyone keeps asking when I'm having the girl. Nope I'm done.

I agree! Stand your ground and have all the babies you want! :-)

We're having a bunch (God willing), and if anyone says anything about it they're gonna learn really quick that it's not thier life and they have no VOTE!
