We're done!

Having kids that is. Yes, I know....I know, I've said it before. And, yes, this is coming from the person who canceled her tubal at the last minute after Deacon and Truman were born and after Sawyer was born but it feels different this time. For the first time I feel like I am ready to be done being pregnant, done giving birth and ready to move on with just raising my family. As scared and freaked out as I am about having a little girl, I feel like she is the perfect way to complete our family. 4 amazing sons and 1 beautiful daughter. It sounds perfect to me. And you know what, I'm not going to lie, kids cost a lot!! And the older they get the more they are going to cost. I'm ready to just enjoy my kids. I am ready to move on from child bearing to child rearing and I'm actually really excited about. I've cried a couple of times knowing this is the last time I'm going to have a baby growing inside of me, the last time I'm going to feel those kicks and those hiccups, the last time I'm going to experience the amazingness of birth but it's time....it's time for us to move on.

I'm glad you feel satisified with your decision. I felt pretty similar this time with Tess. She's our number 5.

I'm pretty sure that we're done. I can't guarantee that I won't get the itch sometimes, but I don't think I'm going to scratch it. :op

And yes, kids are pretty darn expensive.

This is exactly how I felt this time, I tried three times to get a tubal, once after Alex, once after Caitilyn, and now I have surgery schedualed for Friday. But this time, I actually want it, I dont feel like I am doing it because someone else says my family is complete.

HUGS! Hope you recover well!

You make beautiful kiddos so I wouldn't mind if you had more. That's just because I don't have to pay for them, just look at them. ;)
It's great that you are able to make that decision. I don't feel like that at all. Some days I'd love 2 or 3 more and others I wonder how I am going to go grocery shopping with just one more! Unfortunately airline prices will probably be the defining factor in our decision.
