The vasectomy that is.
Although my husband is willing and ready, I can't make up my mind.
Truth be told, two kids are a handful, but something about a third baby seems so right to me.
A little background...my hubby is approaching 44 and I am soon to be 36. I know our ages should tell us to stop. Factor in our limited income (I work part-time). And, consider the fact I almost died during childbirth with my second child.
I should be ready to say "NO MORE BABIES!" But I'm not. Yes, I know, I know...I have a boy and a girl...one of each...I should be satisfied, right?
But I'm not.
Friends aren't much help (bless them for trying). They will tell me "Oh, vasectomies are reversable today!" True, but at a high cost and with a low success rate.
So someone please tell me, how do I make this decision, and feel comfortable with that decision? Oh Shakespeare, share your wisdom with me!
