Not sure what his reaction will be.....
We initially planned to stop the pill in July and start trying, but in the past 6 months I have read up on how some ppl get pregnant straight up and others it takes a while for their cycles to return to normal and have been mentioning this to DH.
He actually came up with our "plan" - me to go off pill March and give my body time to sort itself out, so this is very much a combined effort, but you spend so long trying not to get pregnant I think it's a bit daunting. Even though we will still use protection, it's still a big step for us.
Fibub - if your DH is a bit apprehensive maybe suggest going off pill but using another method of contraceptive?
Good luck for your talk!
Azimuth - That's why I love bub hub. I take all my baby crazy thoughts and bring them here to give DH a break. Hehe.
FiBub - DH and I decided to go off the pill back in January even though we aren't trying until June. He said this would give me time to get my body sorted out and we could start straight away in June. Luckily my cycle was 31 days the first time and I ovulated straight off the pill. Just using condoms until June.
Yeah due to my age i would like to get started ttc asap!
Will let you gals know. I think all will be fine
Always good to let the body sort itself out a little. Boys are so naive. After a little bit of fun this morning DF asks how long does it take before you have MS a few weeks I said, he then goes on to say well good you wouldn't show at the wedding. I laughed and said thats very unlikely same as last week I wont be getting PG at this point he said how would I know, said AF is due tomorrow and the possibility of getting PG now isn't really there lol. He then asked if there were special days only why do so many people "Accidentally" get PG why do they just not have SEX on those days lol.
Due to working such long hours and not being as fit as when we first got together was not the slightest bit happy when i said you needed to BD atleast every second day up to O day and then too. I hope he thinks he's getting a bit more energy back before the honeymoon I don't plan on relaxing in my room just to watch tv lol.
Hahaha wobblermummy that just made me laugh! That is so true!
males are just funny. I said I wouldn't mind if we were PG just before the wedding but it wont happen immediately lol, i said said last week would be in about 2 weeks if possible. Just have to wait for AF to get here, would prefer being PG and not drinking as opposed to getting AF on honeymoon lol. Should be tomorrow since last few months have been 30-31 day cycles and today is day 30 so who knows. Prob cause been so stressed and got new batch of clear blue OPK never actually showed rise in LH this month it was so late only picked up myself by monitoring CM and happened to be my hens night so wasn't home anyway and at that point had not been naughty and gone without contraception, only been twice now which feels naughty but at the end of the cycle so not a high chance, unlike when you are young and sure you will instantly get PG not using contraceptives lol.
Sad I'm getting annoyed AF is not here, figured should have been yesterday or today but still no sore boobs so can only expect will prob be one of these nights when i am oh so busy at work lol. Just want new cycle to begin cause can TTC after this one has finished come on body be friends with me and help me out lol
