What everybody doing for birth control after baby?

Im thinking of doing a long term method but can't decide between a iud or the implanon? I have 3yr old son and a 19 day old daughter. I'm not sure if I want one more or no more lol. So I think 3/5 yrs is enough time for me to make that decision.

@buggie216-have you thought about Essure? if and when I go the permanent way that what I'm considering.
@kfrasher-I know what you mean somedays I feel 2 is enough but then other days I feel 3 seems like a perfect #. Im not good at remembering to take things, during my pregnancy I had days where I forgot to take my prenatal. Also I heard a lot of negative things on the depo shot. Nuvaring, yaz,yazmin, have ads on tv for bad side effects.
@purplelush07-what were your side effects?

My biggest issue with birth control, is most everyone I've ever talked to says abt weight gain! I have so much more to loose, I can't take something that's gonna make it worse! Plus I'm terrible at remembering pills too! And Essure kinda scares me!? I just don't know!???
