I have no insight as I haven’t had kids yet but my sister, who is six years older than me, was born with epliepsy. My parents struggled to get her disorder under control and when she was just a toddler she had a stroke caused by one of the siezures. After that my parents pretty much decided not to have any more kids because they were scared this could happen again. lucky for me they changed their minds a few years later and when my sister was 6 they had me making me the 3rd girl (i have 2 older sisters) – a month after i was born my mom was pregnant again (she clearly didn’t wait her 6 weeks!) and 9 months later my dad got his boy. anything can happen! they had one more boy 2 years later for a grand total of 5 kids.

i think the IUD is a great idea because you have the option to later remove it. maybe he will warm up to the idea of another kid later down the road when he see’s the progression of your baby. I’m so glad to hear everything is going well with her though! having been witness to my sisters  seizures growing up they are really scary!

Just giving you some hope that sometimes you can change your mind and that hopefully the future kids won’t have the same issues. Good luck!
