Well…my youngest child is 3 and 1/2.
Shortly after I had a health scare concerning possible MS.
While they are pretty sure I don’t have it, it was suggested I NOT have any more children as it could aggravate whatever mystery condition I do have.
Since I decided to take that advice - to not have any more children, I thought it would be a good time to have the severe varicose veins in my leg repaired.
It was suggested to me I not have any more children because of my vein problems, tendency to form blood clots, and tendency to contract phlebitis.
I recently found out I have a thyroid condition that needs treatment, and pregnancy only makes these types of conditions worse.
I need to have my wisdom teeth removed because cavities are forming where they touch my molars.
Since the birth of last child I have been overwhelmed. Life is chaotic.
The house is a mess. I’m cranky because I cannot handle all the noise and chaos. I forget everything and cannot find anything.
I don’t give enough time and attention to each child - how can I?
So what have I been doing to prevent pregnancy?
For the past 3 and 1/2 years I’ve been practicing NFP.
I found out this morning I’m pregnant.
