He is far from broken, but he's getting fixed. . .

DH that is. Considering that this pregnancy was a great big giant OOPS and I really don't want that to happen again I suggested (okay, really I just flat out told him) that he needs to go get fixed. Shockingly, he seems a bit put off by this idea. He spouts something about his manhood and needles and knives or something, but I couldn't hear him clearly as I was heaving my guts out at that moment. When I pointed out that for him it was an outpatient procedure with little to no risk involved, he responded with "Well, since they are already going to be in there, can't they just tie you up?" UH, say what was that? Who are 'they'? and Where are 'they' going to be? Does he really not remember the first time, where I pushed a few times and out came a crying bundle of energy. Do I not remember him there next to me encouraging me even as I puked on the nurses shoes? I don't remember 'them' with their little prospector hats going mining for the baby. Maybe I was a little out of it, but I'm pretty sure I'd remember someone climbing in my vagina screaming "Hey, since we're in here, is there anything you'd like us to do? There's a baby in here, would you like us to push that out? Maybe dust the shelves, put away the dishes, clean up a bit? Tie something off? Whatever, we're in here." I think for that statement alone he should get snipped.

ITA, for those comments alone he must get the "V."

I'm regretting my surgery because of the symptoms I'm experiencing so I'm telling anyone NOT to get a tubal ligation.

I've blogged about PTLS. Some dr's don't believe it exists but women are experiencing symptoms. It's worth looking into before having a tubal ligation. NOT that you're remotely considering it.

oh yes... it's his turn babe. for those comments if nothing else. Either that or he'll have to be celibate for the next... say, 20 years? Heh.

I wish I could persuade my DH to do it. but he's heard too many jokes about "just juice" (a brand of fruit juice round here).

I'm considering tubal implants because it means no surgery or cutting for either of us...

Sorry you got that comment from dh... maybe someday men will learn :)

Sounds like Wayne. OMG. He absolutely refuses to get one. And since I know Im having a c-section I told him Id have them tie my tubes "while theyre in there" LOL!

But since read Candes' entry and I plan on talking about it with my OB that is doing the surgery when I see him in a few month. If he says anything that makes me have doubts then Im hoping Wayne will be more willing. MEN!
