DH and I have always wanted just two children. Our DD will be 5 when this baby is born. I only have a few more weeks until I found out what baby bean is, but we are rooting strongly for a boy. I've always said that after two, that was it - that I'd get my tubes tied. HOWEVER, that was before I had kids :).
As with most decisions involving my children, this makes me pause and think. What if this baby is another girl? I'm not saying I wouldn't love it less - not by any means - but DH & I both want a boy, really, really, really bad! If this baby is a boy, I don't think this decision would be one to second guess at all, as we've dealt with 2 or 3 more with our DD, and we KNOW we only want two. But, again as with all decisions dealing with pregnancy, it is tough! I always wonder, if this baby is a girl, will I regret getting them tied? Will I always have a yearning for a boy?
If you were to have your tubes tied, do you think that you would ever regret it? If you're doing tubal ligation after your current pregnancy, how did you come to this decision? If you don't believe in it, please, don't add mean comments, but I just need some other mama's input - this is not something set in stone, by any means, and it might be something that we don't even end up doing. This baby was a long time coming, and even though it would really, really, really suck to go back on BC after almost 5 years, I'd do it. LOL. I just need some advice from other women.
Oh, and don't get me started on a vasectomy. DH is totally against it, and with this baby, I am going to have a c/s, so if we do decide on it, then my Dr. could do it while I was on the table (I assume??)
