Hello I am a 25 year old mother of five. Since the year 2004 I have either had a baby, just gotten pregnant, or had a miscarriage. I actually don't mind having another child but my last pregnancy in 2011 left me in really bad health. My last two pregnancies actually. Since 2010 I've had my gallbladder removed and underarm surgery two c-sectons and other problems. I had gestational diabetes and preeclamsia with the las pregnancy. My youngest is five months old now and I sitll have high blood pressure and chronic severe swelling. I have gained 100 pounds and have not been able to lose due to always being pregnant. My husband wants 10 kids and he doesnt seem to care about my health concerns. He says God is in control and he won't let me get pregnant while I'm ill. I am a devout Christian and I trust in God to take care of me which he always has but I just want to heal properly. My husband refuses to use comdoms or help me in anyway, He keeps pressuring me about sex and I don't want to caused I'm afraid of pregnancy. This has caused strain in my marriage and I dont know what to do. please give me some insight from a Christian point of view. Look forward to h=reading your responses Thank you very much God bless.
