The “Decision”

The "Decision" 1

While some might think I’m insane and that it’s too early in a pregnancy to make such a “life-changing” decision.

After this pregnancy, I want to get my tubes tied. Yes, I’m only 24. At one time, I had thought about how awesome it would be to be a surrogate. Now, no way could I handle it.

I have heard too many “tough it out” or “It can’t be that bad” responses as I’m being told by doctors to come in. Do you think I enjoy all these doctor visits? Ha. What a joke.

People are just downright rude in this day and age. “OH, I didn’t have that in pregnancy so it must not really be happening.” attitudes. When I had to go to the maternity ward, one of the nurses said “If anyone wants to hassle you, they can talk to me, the one with your lab work that says you are really sick right now.”

Pregnancy is hard to begin with. Then add mono. twins to it to up the ante and risks. Yeah, trust me, a twin pregnancy is NOTHING like a singleton pregnancy.

I want my babies healthy and happy. But after this, I’m calling it quits. I don’t have the support to fight through another pregnancy. While I sit here writing this, I keep telling myself I don’t want to do it but sometimes you just feel blah.

  1. you do know already how quickly I came to the decision to get my tubes tied after Jillian. Hell, it was 2 days before she was born that I decided I was done. I think for you, it’s a reasonable conclusion, how much hell is one person supposed to go through??

  2. We had hubby do a vasectomy because of the same thing. After 3 years of guilt, and mourning the premature end of our child-making years, we had it reversed in June. We do not have a small family. I would not choose sterilization ever again.

  3. Congrats on making a decision that is best for you! After my third,i made the decision to have a hysterectomy. I suffered from endometriosis and spent YEARS having doctors and others tell me I was crazy, and suffering through more pain then I care to remember.

    Always stay true to yourself and enjoy your precious children. Congrats on your upcoming arrivals!
