Hi, Jen. I am just joining the boards again. So happy that Alison is doing so well! I had my tubes tied during my second c-section. I had so many complications during both pregnancies and I knew I couldn't go through another pregnancy. I had terrible regrets afterward, and actually went into PPD over it. I don't think it was a good idea to do it when I still had the pregnancy hormones going crazy. But, now a year and a half later, I am so glad that I made the decision. I know that my body just can't handle another pregnancy, and, like you, I don't want to leave my kids without a mom. It is a super hard decision, but I know that you will make the right decision for you and your family.
Suzanne, Mom to:
Hannah Rose - 26 weeker - 1 pound, 1 ounce and 12 inches long, born 8/24/01. Now the tallest kid in the class!
Brandon James - 35 weeker - 4 pounds, 1 ounce and 16 inches long, born 11/11/09. Very happy baby!
Complications during pregnancies: Severe Preeclampsia, Pulmonary Edema, IUGR, MTHFR, Factor II and Factor V Blood Clotting disorders
Miracles do happen!
