After alot of thought DH and I have decided that our two kids are all we are having. I had some medical issues with both pregnancies and we feel it would be safest to call it quits. Is anyone else done having children?

Yes I'm done, but not by choice. I have two boys 4 and 2. I had problems with both of my pregnancies as well. With my first I was on bed rest and 19 weeks and spent 4 months in the hospital. My second went a little better up until 31 weeks. I started dilating very slowly and was put on bed rest. Went into labor and 35 weeks. Was in labor for 10 hours and then had to have a emergency c-section. I got pregnant again last November, and lost it at 14 weeks. It was a girl. I found out 2 days before I lost it. I woke up 2 days later and was hurting so bad. I went to see the doctor and she told me the placenta was pulling away and it was covering my cervix. The heart beat was beating at a weird pace and then the next day it was gone. They had to take the baby out. It was the worst experience I have ever had. I can still have more, but my husband and I decided not to. I didn't want to go through that again. I kinda regret my husband getting a vasectomy. I still want a child so bad. I agree with you though about not having anymore due to medical issues. Your two children need you, and taking the chance of something happening is not the best road to take.

We are done...My youngest was a surprize..After having an Autistic child we decided we were done. It is exhausting having Normal children ..having an Autistic child is like having 3 kids in one.

I love my 3 children..and look forward to one day having granchildren.lol

Not yet, but once we have one more (making two kids) we will be done. We've already been looking into our options as I don't want to take hormones after the next one. I hate being pregnant, and think two is a great number for us :)






 I didn't want to take hormones either. They really mess with me. We decided to have my husband get a vasectomy.  It's not for everyone but you might want to look into that. It was easy and it's not as bad as it is made out to be alot of time. My husband said it didn't hurt that bad. After a day of rest he was as good as new! lol  And it sure beat me having to get my tubes tied. :) 





 



We are looking at three things, If I need an emergency c-section I may get my tubes tied.  My husband is also looking at the vasectomy, but was going to talk to a dr to make sure it would be ok for him due to something weird (but not an issue) at his last apt.  And lastly I just looked at this thing called essure for women, In the coming months I was going to talk to a dr that is in the area that does it to see what she thinks of it.  I've heard a lot of horror stories of women having there tubes tied, so I don't know.

I always knew that if I had kids I'd want no more than two. I had my daughter with my ex-husband. Got remarried and had my son with my current husband. I lucked out and got one of each. I couldn't have anymore even if I wanted them, tho due to medical issues.

We decided to try for one more now that our son is six, and we ended up pregnant with twins! So we'll definitely be done! :)
