I decided after my son was born to go forward with a tubal ligation. I was in an unhappy marriage and after some complications with that pregnancy I decided it was best for the kids and me. It was 2 months after my son was born and I went to the domestic abuse shelter with my 2 year old daughter and newborn son. It was the worst time in my life. I was scared and 23...alone and two children to take care of. Sometimes you have to reach this point to move forward and get to be a stronger person.
Needless to say, I have pulled everything together and after some counceling I can say I survived. My son is 10 and daughter is 13. I wouldn't change it for the world. I have managed to work hard, buy my own home and structure our life together.
I met someone three years ago that has changed our lives for the better. We are getting married next week and I am truly happy. We decided to get my tubes untied last year and I finally went thru with it 2 weeks ago. He really wants more children and as much as I have enjoyed being a mother my desire to have a happy and supportive pregnancy is at the top of my mind. I would love to have more kids.
I definitely want to share that it hurt. I had a really hard time after my laparotomy. The first night I passed out on my way from the bathroom. I am 15 days out and still sore. I am excited about ttc but I am scared to try just yet because I am still sore. I am glad we are not in a hurry. lol
