    I put other. The "culprit" was the fact of me being incapable of remembering to take my pills half the time, and not having a backup method of contraception (didn't use condoms).

    Dd1 - forgetting to take the pill because I was busy working
    Dd2 - had an inplanon removed, the doctor failed to ask me of i'd had unprotected mummy daddy time in the last couple of days
    Ds1 - stopped taking the pill as I was having bad headaches, got my AF and had unprotected special cuddles the day AF finished (happened to coincide with DH getting home from 2 weeks away).

    DH is off to get the snip before we get a baby while I'm booby feeding.

    DS - due to me always forgetting to take the pill and then telling DP, then not using condoms.

    Ds was planned. Dd however was a complete surprise. Ds was only 5 months old and As I was bf I hadn't even had my period yet. We were practicing combination of pull out method and condoms. I still am perplexed on how I fell pregnant... She must of crawled up my leg

    My second child was conceived when my son was only 5 months. I put the pill, however I can't really blame the pill, I had a tummy bug and obviously the pill was not being absorbed! (should have used back-up) My OB then told me you are extrememly fertile the first 6 months after giving birth !

    i fell with this baby using condoms, it broke so i took the morning after pill. LMAO alot of good that did me. I fell with number #1 on the pill & # 3 on the withdrawal which we knew was a huge risk so it wasnt a shock when i got pregnant. The only one we actually tried for was # 2 and also the m.c.

    I was on the pill for the last 2 babies. The last pill I was on, was a 50mg.

    I also have 1 IUD baby.

    Needless to say, I got my tubes tied after bub number 4.
