Vasectomy Monday afternoon....

Well, it's scheduled. Its hard to think about on one hand, but a relief on the other. I was a WEEK late this month-----two pregnancy tests later and I finally started. LOGICALLY, I knew we were protected and the odds were VERY unlikely, but, I was ILL for that week, wondering what was going on and terrified---I was mentally preparing for 8 weeks or more of bedrest with a tiny baby and a 4 year old-------i was so scared. It's for the best.

I can relate to that fear. And when we finally got the "all clear" after DH's vasectomy, it was a great feeling. Have some frozen peas ready. ;-)

Thanks girls. Tick tock----he's not looking forward to it in the least, but, he's going to do it. If I want another one day we'll adopt, but, I think I'm finally confident in our decison now that my hormones have straightened out and the REALITY of what COULD happen if we got pregnant again set in. We are LUCKY to have two kids----no losses etc etc....not going to press it!!!!!

UPDATE:

It is done!!!!!! It took a little longer than expected---dh is hard to numb!!!!!!!! But, it's a done deal. 6 weeks he takes a sample, then again after that (not sure how long) I had both kids in the waiting room----one screaming down a bottle, spitting up and the other disobeying me right and left......somehow I felt we were in the RIGHT PLACE!!!!!!!!!!! I'm just glad its over. I feel SUPER sure we made the right decision.

Glad to hear it's over. Be sure he gets in for the follow up sample. We know someone who didn't and had sex, bingo baby #4 made an appearance. My DH took about 5 months before he was clear, so hopefully the 6 weeks is it for your DH. Hoping he's doing okay tonight.

Day #2: NOT PRETTY. So, dh woke up in pain and he took his pain meds and antibiotic....well, then he told me he was lightheaded, nauseaous and burning up. Felt him he wasn't even hot. He went and laid down another hour and told me to get him back up. I took his bp and temperature when he got up, all fine, temp low prob b/c ice pack and percoset. UGH. I thought he was DYING when he went to lay back down but he got up feeling much better!!!! I keep reminding him that I had TWO c-sections, classicals nonetheless.......MEN!
