So, my dh and I are fairly certain that we are finished having kiddos. Well, I am fairly certain, he is 100% sure. We have one just turning 2 yrs old, and one 5 months old. Because of our ages and the need to eventually return to work full time, if we had another child, it would have to be sooner rather than later. Since dh is so hands on, it would probably push him to his limit to add one more to the mix anytime soon. Plus, my MIL, who provides care for the children 2 days a week, might feel a tad overwhelmed with 3 little ones.
Well, I looked into birth control and found out that my insurance will cover tubal ligation, but not IUD or pills. I was wanting the IUD, but it is pretty pricey. So now my dilema is pay out of pocket for something that I may not be happy with or face another surgery and permanent sterilization. I guess I could go for pills for awhile, but I really haven't found one that I am totally happy with. Usually I gain weight, get really moody or feel yucky while taking the pill. Plus I am still nursing my ds right now.
Even though I am pretty sure that the tubal would be an okay choice, I still get pretty anxious when thinking of the permanency of that decision. I guess I am just irked that insurance won't cover an IUD.
