In The Clear???????

Did you ever have a time where suddenly you were bombarded by out-of-the-blue hints that force you to do something you should have done a LONG TIME AGO? I mean, eerie, sudden hints? Eerie, sudden hints that continuously slap you in the forehead, to the point you ask yourself:

How much longer can I actually put something like this off????!!!

Here are the facts:

  • I have two girls and my husband has two boys. Grade-wise we have a kindergartner, first, second and third grader. Yeah, I know.
  • My husband had the amazing courage to offer to get a vasectomy last year. Actually it was 15 months ago this Christmas, but why would we be counting, right?

  • Routine follow-up for vasectomies includes TWO sperm-sample checks, to ensure the procedure went as planned, and there is NO sperm spillage... sperm leakage... You know, accidental pregnancy for a couple that has way too much on their plates already.

  • We never got our second sample check.
Here's the sudden, eerie hints I'm talking about:

  • Psychic at recent psychic party feels "MORE" children around us. AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

  • Lunch at my husband's Urology office 2 weeks ago [I am a drug rep]: Stories of two men just coming in with pregnant wives, both after vasectomies that didn't get samples re-checked. AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
  • Waking up too many times with temporary birth control ring stuck to my right ass cheek. AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
So this proud procrastinator would like to say, "We did it, everyone".

Sperm-Free, and Proud.

I'm seriously crying right now b/c I'm laughing so hard. Good for you and your hubby's spermless happy cup. :) All the fun, none of the risk.
PS. I'd like to know how you talked him into a vasectomy? Please? I think Lennie is one of those guys who wants to be fertile forever, just in case I die when we're in our 80's and he marries a 25 year old. Because in his mind, that's how it's gonna happen...

I just had similar conversations with a good friend of mine about MAKING SURE YOU GET THE SECOND "ALL CLEAR"!!!! She fought me at first bu after letting her see the people this has happened to directly, she relented that I was right! yeah!!! happy dance for me!

Congrats on the the "all clear"!!!

You know...some things are just meant to be. And some things, you just have to take a knife to and kill it off forever. I'm just sayin'...
