So it’s official.
No more babies for us.
I’ve taken the steps for it to be so, as the temptation would otherwise be there.
Not long after N arrived, I started selling off my maternity clothes on a well known auction site. They have practically all gone now.
I’ve started sorting out J’s old clothes into what to keep for N, and any that N outgrows are being sorted for what to sell or give away and what to keep for a memory quilt in the future.
As N outgrows the baby items (such as the swing) they are being sold too.
The latest step is contraception (as I never got that far before falling pregnant with our angel). Obviously we have decided no more babies in the foreseeable future so this was the most important thing. I have decided on the mirena coil as I am rubbish with tablets so the pill would have been no good for me. My appointment is next week.
All of this does make me quite sad, as I would love to extend our family (and I love being pregnant, I often have bump envy) but it’s just not feasible right now.
I openly admit I also wouldn’t be able to cope with 3 this close together!
My head overruled my heart this time.
Maybe at some point in the far future (when both boys are at school!).
But not right now.
My boys are my world.
My own little piece of the world.
When did you decide to have no more babies, that your family was complete?
