Re: How do you cope?

There's not much I can tell you, mama. I'm dreading that day, myself. I want 6, DH's pretty dead-set on no more than 3. I just had my first, but going through all the wonders that I've been through and thinking that one day, I'll never be doing this again...it scares me. I hope you get through it.

I have BTDT.... Celeste's condition is genetic. Its no-doubt-about-it serious. SO.... we have chosen to expand our family by adoption. So far we have our bio dd Celeste and are just finishing up adoption of dd#2. I miss pregnancy, but am glad i was able to experience it at least once. After all, the fun really starts with that baby in your arms! GOod luck to you.

Re: How do you cope?

How I cope? Denial Dh was done before we began, he never wanted kids. I had my son and that was fine, I had female issues and told there would be no more babies from me. This was eventually fine with me and together we decided that my ds was enough. Then surprise ~ 7 years later I am pregnantw ith Madison. He FREAKED big time but eventually came around and is a reat daddy. Again though, that was it. I begged for this one and he compromised as I said this would be it. Now I want a 4th and he insists he is getting a v as soon as the baby is born. It is very upsetting but in a way I understand (well, I understand he compromised) but pray that "something" will happen and I'll get a 4th baby. Maybe he procrastinates, has a change of heart or something ~ anything. It's all denial for me!!

Re: How do you cope?

I can totally understand what you are going through mama when i was pg with ds dh and i agreed on 3 (i wanted 4 he wanted 2) but then i had a terrible pregnancy followed by surgery and really bad ppd. He never said anything at the time but now he says he is done he never wants to go through anything like that again. As for me i feel like i was robbed and i want another chance and a homebirth (was not an option with ds) so i am trying to give him time and dropping small hints here and there to which he rolls his eyes I really hope he comes around and maybe your dh will too!
