Bye Bye Baby Maker


I know this post is going to come as a surprise to some of you. I have shared in the past about how long we have been trying to have a second child here, here, here and here. I've also shared here and here. And now, I'm going to share why we have decided that we are complete as a family of 3 and will no longer be trying to have a baby.

Over the last few months, we had a ton of fertility testing done and all the results came back that there was nothing seriously wrong causing my infertility. The only thing that has prevented pregnancy is the fact that I have PCOS. Anyway, hubby and I have had many long discussions over the years about what we want and how many kids we wanted and how far we were willing to go in order to try and make that happen. In the last couple of months we came to the conclusion that we were completely happy as we are right now. We decided that we didn't actually WANT anymore kids. We were just continuing to try because it was expected of us by certain people and that we needed to stop and reevaluate.

Now, we've talked about this decision before but it never felt right. There was never peace with the decision. This time is different. I am completely at peace in my decision to not have anymore kids and to not even try anymore. I've even made an appointment with my gyn to discuss removing my baby making parts! I am really excited to move on to the next phase of life not worrying about any of the physical issues I deal with on a monthly basis. I have an appt in a couple of weeks now and I'm looking forward to finding out what the next step is and taking it.

We know that we are doing the right thing for us and our family and couldn't be happier with our choice! Yay!

  2. Oh Chrissy! I'm happy that you are okay with this decision... there is absolutely nothing wrong with the family you have now... every family is different. Some have lots of kids, some only have 1. We have 2 and feel we are complete!

  6. I just found your blog through rockin mama and I love it! It's a shame that people try to push you into something, sometimes without even knowing it. We have decided not to have anymore children either.
