Anyone else going through this and how are you coping with it

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

I had my first child by cesarean and was lucky enough to be able to have my second by VBAC six months ago. I had a rough go of healing from my C-section and was really scared about the possibility of having another one but now am having issues following my VBAC and am in physiotherapy. I know that having more children will probably be too difficult on my body and although I would love to just have one more, I know I need to be thankful for the two wonderful daughters I have and seriously consider a tubal ligation. It is breaking my heart. Anyone else going through something similar and having to make this decision? How are you dealing with it? It is honestly really depressing me.

I'm probably physically able to still have children but financially and residence wise we probably won't be able to. We don't have a big enough house for 3 kids and we can't afford a bigger one. It DOES break my heart that we probably won't be having more children...and I guess the way I cope is I cherish every moment with my kids and lock away every memory. I tell stories to my friends and family constantly and even to my kids about the things they do, the way they do them. I'm enjoying the gifts I have and trying not to dwell on the gifts I may never get.
