Did you feel like this? When did it pass?
I have three beautiful kids and DH and I have recently decided that we're not having any more. We were fairly sure this would be it but until now were going to leave it open for a couple of years in case we changed our minds. Lately we've realised there are so many reasons why stopping at three is the best decision for our family and we're looking into him getting the snip.
This is a good thing. I'm happy about this, I want to grow with them and enjoy them and get a bit more 'me' back eventually....
So why do I feel so devastated at the same time? Is it hormones? Is it just the feeling of leaving part of your life behind? Closing a chapter? Is it biology? Because my births went so badly? I feel like I'm grieving for not getting another positive pregnancy test ever again, or never meeting another newborn, or feeling those first kicks.
And it's totally irrational because I don't want more babies, and I don't want to be pregnant again.... but I'm still feeling really emotional about never going there again.
Did anyone else feel like this? Any tips to get over it? I want to be happy when DH has the snip rather than an emotional crazy pants 😁
