This is going to be a mild pit rant, so mild it might be mundane and pointless, so we will see how it goes.
My sister has two children soon to be three. She cannot afford one right now much less three. But I am not really pitting her.
I am pitting her birthcontrol.
Now the first two can be up to debate.
With her first child she was using the pill and got pregnant. She swears she used it correctly, and when we lived together I always notice she was consistent. Always took it in the morning at the same time. Thus I got my nephew.
Since she had been burned on birthcontrol, she beefed up security a little bit with spermicide, condoms and the pill. Of course it did not help that he was taking anti-biotics at the time. She went into the doctor for what she thought was the flu, and came out with a positive pregnancy. Her Doctor told her that he thought everyone knew you shoulnd’t mix antibiotics and the pill, and that she should have read the manual. Fair enough she said, but geez, pill condom and spermicide? Apparenty Her husband had supersperm. Her husband was less than pleased because he had 4 kids already from a previous marriage. She was young enough that the docs didn’t want to tie her tubes.
Well with this pregnancy she was in the hospital 4 months, lost 50 lbs. So they finally talked the Doctors into tying her tubes, because of all of her complications. So they tied her tubes and she was done having children.
So she went back to having regular everyday wet and nasty sex, and all was good, until her last child ( a daughter) was about one year old. All of the sudden she felt pregnant. But she couldn’t be because her tubes were tied right? She went through the surgery because of the complications of her last pregnancy, and she didn’t want to do that again. So just on a whim she took a pregnancy test, and was greeted with a big fat positive. But that couldn’t be because she had her tubes tied! Right?
Went to the doctor and low and behold she was indeed two months pregnant, and is already experiencing violent morning sickness like she did last time.
Damn, thats all I can say to the situation. She can’t catch a break.
She can barely afford the two she has. That was another reason she got her tubes tied. So there could be no more “how the hell did that happen” babies.
Now maybe she was messing up her birth contol the first two times. But hot damn on a stick, even after getting your tubes tied? She was more worried about wanting to reverse it one day, than getting pregnant again
I am worried about her because she is so sick already and has a hard enough time with not alot of support.
Sorry if this is too mild for the pit, if its too mild could someone move it to mspims?
