Suzanne, be gentle with yourself and let some little time pass. Yes, a phase of your life passed with the decision to tie your tubes but remember that you are indeed swimming in hormones and you are also enjoying the enormous treat of a delicious snuggly newborn. I can confidently say that by the time Brandon is crawling and Hannah is up to her eyes in even more school activities, you'll be much more confident of your decision. So close to the event, it's natural that your focus is "backward", very soon now I anticipate that you'll be looking more "forward".
I know you are not the first, BIG HUGS. I havn't had a tubal for precisely those reasons. I just CAN'T. Even though I know I have pregnancies from *. Even though I have never gotten full term and spend months on bedrest. I just CAN'T. I don't know what to tell you. I am sending you big hugs.
Did you feel sad afterward? I was determined throughout my entire pregnancy to have my tubes tied during my c-section. I know that my body could never do this again. I am 35 years old and I somehow avoided a stroke and heart attack due to ridiculous blood pressure readings not once, but twice. My MFM brought up the option of going with an IUD and I said no, I'm too old to get pregnant again and my body hates being pregnant. He said he delivers women 10 older than me, and that this pregnancy wasn't so bad. I told him I still wanted the tubal and he said okay, and that's what he did after the c-section. Today I had my two week follow-up and he reviewed the pathology report and said "you're now out of the baby making business." For some reason my eyes welled up with tears. I have been feeling regret over the tubal since the day it was done. I guess I forgot how fun it was to have a newborn, and when I hold Brandon I feel sad that he will be my last baby. Plus, my husband and I have not been getting along and I keep thinking, what if I get divorced and remarry and want to have a baby with my new husband? I think the hormones are just overwhelming me right now, because both times I hated being pregnant and I swore I would never do it again, but now I can't help but feel sad. I guess because it's just so permanent. I'm sure I will be glad later on, but I just wanted to see if anyone else regretted their decision after the surgery was over.
