    So because I am having a cesarean I am going to put in the request to do a tubal ligation at the same time. But, I reserve the right to change my mind and if I do that then my husband has said that he will get a vasectomy. I am really torn on whether or not I want this to be our last child, but if that’s what we decide then I want to know that every thing is set up for that to happen.

    I don’t think it ever is “time to stop”, but who knows? Maybe I’ll change my mind one day.

    I also think that sterilizing yourself when your spouse wants more is one of the most selfish things you can do.

    My husband has expressed his desire to stop at 3. If I decide to wait until after baby is born to make the decision and I choose to stop at 3, then he will get a vasectomy.

    I’m not sure if you are ever certain. I just had my first and I don’t know if I want others. I had kind of a tough pregnancy with severe morning sickness that lasted for over 20 weeks and bad anxiety, and I ended up having an unplanned C section. On top of that, our baby has VUR, which is genetic and has a higher chance of occurring in females. Now that my PPD is getting better, I often think about giving our baby a sibling. I can’t help but change my mind almost daily, though. On good days, I could see myself having at least one more baby. On difficult days (bad colic or issues with my PPD), I swear I don’t want more. Before our baby was born, I kept swearing up and down that I wanted like 4 kids, lol.

    In your situation, I’d give it some time. I know I’ve heard that any other kids after the 2nd are all easy to handle and usually take little adjustment, but it depends on what you’re financially and emotionally comfortable with. You don’t want to stretch yourself too thin in any means.

    My mom and dad thought they were done with three: my two sisters and I. But, they had another, a boy. They made a permanent decision to be done and my mom's heart just ached for more. We prayed about it and she asked that if it wasn't Christ's will, for her desire to be taken.. but it wasn't. My dad was the one who said he wanted to get a reversal.. and now we have two more little siblings. Pray about it.
