My DH had the V just before our 3rd girl was born.

Yes, I'm sure you've found the right board. Many ladies on this board have husbands who got the vasectomy without their knowledge or permission, and I'm sure they can relate to your wanting another child. I hope that you and your husband are on the same page soon, whatever your decision may be.

This is the right board :) You might just need to give him some time and bring up the conversation in a year like you were thinking. It doesn't sound like at the time he wanted more than the three, but that can always change.

I can relate to not feeling like you are done yet, I really hope that he'll be open to trying for another.

I'm sorry he is changing his opinion on the reversal. That has to be really hard.

I would suggest talking to him about it after doing some research. Statistically speaking, most woman don't get pregnant immediately after a VR, instead, on average it takes about a year for most women to get pregnant. Perhaps if you tell him that, he'll be open to talking about the VR happening again and it happening sooner rather than later.

I understand feeling like you aren't done yet and I hope you can work things out with your DH soon so that the two of you can get on the same page again.

On another note I forgot to add that he never went back to get his sperm count checked! I have asked him over and over and over again to do it and he still has not done it! I don't understand? I know I want a baby in the coming years BUT NOT THIS YEAR....what if he has swimmers.....he is putting me at risk for pregnancy much earlier than I am ready by not getting his count done......any thoughts on why he wont get the count done?

He probably won't get it done because its a bit embarassing.
