Yes I am only 27.
I was 18 when I had Chase and yes we did it a bit backwards. We had Chase in May and got married in October, but whatever I eventually got it right. Then in November I got baptized and had to learn how to not wear tanks and mini shorts. (of course if someone told me to just gain weight and I would want to wear them that would have been easier)
But Chase was my preemie baby (3lbs 7 oz) and I had to have him c-section, because his umbilical cord grew in to the sac, but everything worked out and I figured I was done since everything was so difficult.
Then I told Jason to get fixed and the day before he was going to go in I ask him if was reversible and he just looked at me and said if you want more I am not getting it in the first place.
So then we had Jacob and of course I still wanted a girl so we had to try again.
And then Savannah (by the way her name was supposed to be Gillian but a week before she was due I sided with Jason and named her Savannah like he wanted) so I figured I was done but then we moved back to AZ (from Missouri) and found out I was pregnant again, only to miscarry two weeks later.
So I said I am totally done this is too hard only to find that if you don't really use a birth control you get pregnant anyway.
So we had Gillian.
Then this time I was on the phone with the doctor explaining this whole story and told him I needed something other than surgery (since I didn't handle the first one that well) but long term and he suggested IUD so I was told to make an appointment when my period came, so I waited and waited and it never came but Jeremiah did. (he was the only one not to have a name already picked out before we went to the hospital and almost went home without one too).
So yes I am 27 and have 5 kids and its all because I have a lack of will power to finish what I start. So I finally finished what I started and we are done having kids. At least for the next 10 years...lol
Signed Bridget, the slacker who didn't want any kids in high school and now has more than most of my friends.
P.S. My kids just told me they want to have 2 million kids (Jacob) 1 to 2 kids (Chase) 42 (Savannah) Gilli just kept saying.... me, me, me, kids.... and Traeana and Taylor both said 3. So we will see just how big our family gets.
