This baby will be #3 for us. (DS, DD and this on is a girl). We initially were satisfied with 2 children especially since we had one of each. Then I got wishing for another and DH was fine with it. I remember the conversation clearly. "I think I want to have another baby." "Sure.ok" me-"you're suppossed to talk me out of it." Lol! Lo and behold I am here and since I'm having a repeat section was offered a tubal ligation option. I talked to DH. He is 40 and I'm 33. He feels like having a 4th would be hard because he'd be like 60 when the kid graduates high school. I can see his point, so we're going to go for the tubal ligation. Any one else going through with a tubal?

Me! Me! Me! Me! No way am I doing this again. I'll be 35 tomorrow and will have a 6 year gap between these 2.

Norther KY hospitalized are all associated with a main catholic hospital so permanant birth control has to be done across the river or in an office.

Sunni, I'm not worried about the recovery, I heard that it a lot of times causes you to kind of go crazy.

I'm doing a tubal at 6 months pp. My doctor says he can go through the vagina and it is minimally invasive. Given my history of bleeding he won't do it any sooner so that I have time to fully heal and then some. This is also our 3rd, and the tie breaker for us. I'll be 29 when this one is born and dh is already 42 so we are definitely done.

Well, I've done some googling and I have to say I didn't come across any sources I would site as credible. No offense, ladies. I'm willing to take my chances; especially since I know so women who've had it done with no ill effects. I've had an IUD which many people in this country still consider to be controversial so I think I'll risk it.

Have you considered Adiana? I was looking at Essure a few years ago but my family Dr was trying to talk me out of it. He's worried about future MRIs. My nw OB offers Adiana and that sounds like it would eliminate my family Dr's concerns.

I do agree with you about the lack of credible sources, and honestly I was ready to do it with no qualms.
