No more babies

As you're reading this, I'm probably breathing in those fabulous fumes from a mask on my face that is sending me flitting off to dreamland. Also known as general anesthesia. I won't ask you to pray that I wake up, because I've been put under before (hello boobs!) and I have no issue with coming to. But if you like, you can take a minute and pray that it takes a tad longer than usual for me to actually "fall asleep" and that the floating transition period it takes can be a little more prolonged. And that they send me home with some good pain meds.

And now that I sound like a complete drug addict...

It's true, friends. This momma's baby maker is being permanently disabled. No more bambinos from this uterus. Even though I'm only 27 31, I really have no second guesses. And I kind of always knew I would end up being a mom of boys. 

I love being a mom of two boys.

These two keep me busy.

But I'm glad I'm done.

Done being pregnant.

Oh yeah. And no more morning sickness, no more getting up fifty times a night to pee, bloating, cramps, sleeplessness, breathlessness, and of course, the dreaded labor. (Did you miss my birth story? You can read it here.)

So while part of me is sad that I will never have a daughter (not really) the rest of me is happy to know I never have to go nine long months again without drinking.

That was brutal.

  4. You were such a beautiful prego mama! Laughing at the pic of baby crying and the older one laughing and "awwwing" at them holding hands!! LOL at the drinking part! One day you will have daughters (in-law) and then you can drink wine and have girl time with them! They will LOVE having you as a MIL! :)

  7. I don't think your kids could be any cuter and you have to be the most gorgeous preggo ever. Hope the surgery goes well. I am totally planning on getting my tubes tied after I pop out a couple of kiddos.

  20. I can't believe I had to find out today was the day on your BLOG! What am I? Chopped liver since I moved? At least Colty still loves me when I see him. And you even texted me yesterday saying todays blog will be better since they have been lacking this week. :/ How rude! <---- in a stephanie from Full House tone.

  21. Thinking of you and hoping for an extended drugged-up dreamland for you, too! ;)

    Out of curiosity, why do the surgery for you as opposed to having your husband get a little snip snip? Just wondering what the thought process behind that is!

    And you have the cutest boys ever. They look so much like you!

  27. I will pray for a quick and painless recovery for you. I've had a c section so I know recovery can be a bitch. I totally don't blame you though. At this point in my life I totally just plan on having two. Whether I get two boys or a boy and a girl I don't care ( I'm guaranteed at least one boy because I'm pregnant with him right now lol). I'm done after two! After getting preeclampsia and losing my last baby because he was born 3 months early, I'm just not willing to hurt my body over and over. I 100% plan on getting my tubes tied during my c section after my third. Maybe even this time if things don't go well again... I hope it all goes perfectly for you. Your babies are so perfect! <3

  28. you go girl! i hope all goes well with your operation! your post made me excited for you and sad at the same time! i have always thought of myself as only having boys too! i only have one baby boy now and i'm definitely not ready to be done yet, but it made me sad to think of the time when i WILL be done! it's kind of bittersweet i guess? no more being pregnant (yaaay) but no more sweet newborns (boo). anyway, good luck with the surgery!
    and your baby boys are beautiful!!! xoxo
