My bouncing baby boy didn’t realize his mommy was on the pill! So…. yeah.

The first time trying after going off of the pill – we were shocked, because we figured that it would take a bit longer for my body to regulate itself, but were thrilled to find out we were wrong.  Apparently I did have reason to be uber paranoid about taking the pill so strictly for years, afterall! πŸ˜‰

Got off the pill, had my first period one month later and got pregnant right after that.

I wasn’t on the pill for years before we got married, so I can’t speak from my own experience, but one of my best friends just called me yesterday to say she is pregnant. She got pregnant the first month she was off BC. The expected it to take longer since her husband is 42, but… it didn’t.

I was on the pill for about 10 years, went off in June, prevented for the most part in July and got my BFP in August. I was charting and using OPKs to give it the best chance possible however.

I got off the pill at the beginning of May and got a positive pregnancy test by the beginning of June.  I’m due in February. 

Oh and I was on the pill for 11 years.

I’ve been off the pill since December. I was on it for like 13 years. We haven’t been ‘trying’ but we haven’t been ‘not trying’ We leave for our honeymoon in two weeks, I’ll probably start charting and all that after the honeymoon.

My sister had 4 cycles before getting preggo.  

Have you started taking prenatal vitamins yet? It’s a good idea to begin when you’re TTC because that way your levels are already up by the time you are ready to need them. πŸ™‚

I just got off the pill on August 18th, and Darling Husband and I are NTNT. I’m due for my period on Wednesday, so I’ll let you know if we have any luck in our first month πŸ˜‰

My friend stopped her BC pack and 2 months later she was pregnant, and now has a beautiful 2 1/2 year old girl πŸ™‚

I wasn’t on the pill. But a friend of mine was on it for several years, then when she went off it took about 10 months for her to get pregnant with clomid.
