Hi. I'm OAD, not by choice. I always wanted two, but it took us seven years and ten pregnancies to get our rainbow daughter and due to health risks during that pregnancy my doctor doesn't think it's safe to try again. So after my daughter was born I got my tubes tied and we're officially done. So here I am! Hope you'll have me.
One and likely done due to circumstances. I have a 3 year old daughter and have had 4 losses over the past 10 months. We have tried and failed IVF and will never stop trying but it may be that we never have another living child and I'm trying to come to terms with that. Especially since everyone keeps asking when I'll have another and why I would want to "do this" to my child. Gag. Hope you all will have me even though I am actively wishing not to be OAD despite the odds. Thanks.
Welcome oadif, we include all types of OAD parents, including those who are OAD not by choice. I'm so sorry for your losses and for people's insensitive comments. Your DD has loving parents and is no worse off without siblings. I hope you continue to post with us!

ha ha not a very big story to share but surely an interesting one. When me and my boyfriend got married we always had a disagreement as he wanted to have 2 kids. As of me, after listening to my friends and sisters about their horrific experiences, I was not even willing to have one. Anyway so I still obviously gave in and we mutually decided to have one kid. Now after about 2 years of our marriage we went for a party to one of a very close friend’s house. I still don’t know what exactly triggered but me and my husband ended up having sex on the terrace. And I conceived twins so you know it was a win-win situation for both of us.
