Quoting LilyRain12:" say you wanted to have at least 2 if not more (i want 4, DH says 2) children. after having one, you found ... [snip!] ... having one, you found out that you may/will not be able to have anymore. idk the prospect of it i find a bit devastating..."
I wasn't supposed to be able to have any. I got lucky. My first viable pregnancy gave me twins. We thought that was going to be it and I was thrilled. Granted that was two babies and I always wanted 4 but, 2 was better than none especially given my history. We were suprised with another pregnancy that gave us a son. Again, thrilled. We thought, "hey, maybe these dr's didn't really know what they were talking about". Well, they did. Turns out, getting pregnant with the twins was too much for me and while pregnant with my son I ended up transfusion dependant. Now, here I am blessed beyond belief with three beautiful children but, I just had a partial hysterectomy (my health is not good so to speak and this is one step in a direction of healthy if you will). There is never another chance for me to have another child. Biologically that is. To me, a child is born of love. It doesn't matter how that child lands in your arms as long as it comes with the idea of love. Yes, we were in the process of adoption applications when I turned up pregnant with my girls. I will consider the process again when my health returns.
