This is my pregnany belly the day I was induced with William. He was 12 days overdue.

This is my pregnant belly at 7 months with Samuel - Huge!

For some reason I don't have any pregnant belly photos from Ebony, so here she is the day she was born.

Lately I've been seeing people lots of pregnant women and instantly disliking them. Awful I know. But I can't seem to help it. I seem to be struggling a bit with knowing that there are no more babies for me. I'm all done. I made the decision to have my tubes tide when I had Ebony, and I thought that I was fine with that. 
But then, while I was on the table getting sewn back together my Dr leaned over that big blue drape and told me I was doing the right thing as my uterus was in no condition to have anymore. It was stretched and weakened and he was having trouble stopping the bleeding. It wouldn't hold another pregnancy.
I just nodded at the time. 
But now, 4 months later, I look at Ebony and feel like I'm not finished. It has knocked me over a bit as I had always said I wasn't having kids. Now I have three and feel like there should be more. Crazy! 
So I keep seeing all these pregnant ladies around and have pregnant friends, some just about to have their first, and I envy them. They get to experience that amazing, brand new baby moment and my most favorite bit -  the very first week when they just sleep and feed (and poo) and are so perfect. 
I know I should be happy for them but I can't help feeling a bit selfish and wishing it was me again.

I just wanted to say that I totally understand where you're coming from. It took until my youngest was 2.5 to come to terms with our decision to stop at red. And I was totally fine with that decision, but part of me found it so hard to say goodbye to having my own tiny little baby. My youngest is about tot turn three and now I am so happy with no more babies. My brain just clicked. Just allow yourself to take your time to come to terms with the decision :) you're allowed to feel however you like :) it's huge moving away from the baby stage. Thinking of you :)
