Opinions Needed (and just plain BEGGED for!!)
It hasn't been that long ago that I was begging God for a baby, just one baby. After my miscarriage I can remember promising that if I could have just one baby I would never ask for another again. I don't believe that was the best prayer in the world, for many reasons, but I do truly believe that God answered it and blessed us with Aiden. Then God had something else in mind and just a few months later we were blessed with our adorable little Olivia.
I can't even begin to tell you how happy we are with our two babies and how very much we love them. That being said we have absolutely decided that as much as we love the two we have we are not sure that we want anymore any time soon. So that's where the opinion (and advice) part of this post comes in. I'm now 6 weeks post-pardum (how did the time fly by so fast??!!) and have to worry about birth control again. If you had told me 3 years ago that it would be a worry of mine I'm not sure that I would have believed you but apparently it is. Right now I'm very much thinking in the direction of an IUC - namely the M*irena. I spoke with Liz (my midwife) today and she says I'm a perfect candidate for one. We definitely don't want any more children for at least 2 years, it won't interfere with my milk supply, and it's 99.9% effective at preventing pregnancy. So what do you think?? Have any of you used an IUC? Do you have opionions about them either way? If you have used one would you recommend it to someone else? Any side effects or issues with them? Any thoughts or help on the subject would be GREATLY appreciated.
Oh and of course I thought a poll would be fun because I've never done one but would love as many opinions and thoughts as possible. Even if you do the poll and answer a straight yes or no I beg you to leave comments and really let me know anything you can about this subject. The poll will only be open until October 28th at 12:00 p.m. because I have an appt regarding this matter on October 29th and want your opinions well before that. Thanks for sharing!
