New here VR Friday
Mon, 02-16-2009 - 4:44pm

Hello all,

I have been lurking on this board for months now and finally decided to post. My background: I am Renee,34, my DH is Ray,35, we will be married 20 years in June and have 7 kids; DS 18, DD 16, DS 13, DS 11, DS 8, DD 6 and DS 3. We had the V in 6/06 and I immediately regretted it. I remember sitting in the waiting room while DH was having it done and thinking "What have we done!" Baby #7 was a traumatic birth and we also had alot of pressure from family. We were so stupid. I have been thinking about the reversal ever since but didn't get up the nerve to talk to DH until about 6 months ago. It didn't take much talking! Turns out he regretted it too.

We are having the VR done by Dr. Wilson. I actually found him and chose him because of this board. I'm starting to get a little concerned about the weather while we are there. We are Las Vegas people and not at all used to cold/icy weather. I'm gonna have to go buy some more thermals!

Welcome and good luck on Friday!!

I dont think your crazy at all for wanting another. I think I might love having 7 or 8 as well. ANd I even say this as my 3 yo dd throws a tantrum right next to me over wanting more valentines candy,lol.

Keep us posted on the VR or just any questions you have about anything. The ladies here all are so very nice and helpful.

Hi Renee and welcome to the board!

I'm sorry #7 was so traumatic, I hope all is good now!!

As far as you being crazy for wanting more, I don't think so!

Good luck on Friday, you should have good chances of sperm returning since it hasn't been long since your Dh's v! We were in Muskogee last week for our VR with Dr. Wilson. The weather was actually very nice - in the 60's both days, it was quite humid too. It felt like spring to us!
