  • Wedding: June 2011

This is us. Almost to a T, but we’ve been married for nearly two years. The original plan was to come off mirena and TTA for most of the year. We’ve sort of decided that we’re more or less open to having  a baby now. So, we are basically loosely using WD – something I’ve never EVER done before so I more or less consider it NTNP. Darling Husband, on the other hand, supposedly used it quite a bit for years with an ex and didn’t consider it playing with fire.  

We know that it’s not perfect timing, but we also know that there’s really no such thing. So why not at least keep our minds and hearts open to the possibility? After all, we both grew up really poor. We’re already so much more together (and older) than our parents were – so I’m pretty sure it will be ok. Our kids will never be trust fund babies anyway, and our financial situation isn’t likely to GREATLY improve over the next year or anything. We’re planning a move/job switch, but that’s it. And our careers are almost always going to be contract based, so it’s not like I can really guarantee I’m going to get a maternity leave anywhere. 

Ipad autocorrect is seriously the worst.

  • Wedding: February 2012

This was us last year. I came off BCP after the honeymoon, in March of 2012. We were long distance from March – September so we didn’t have many opportunities to be together and when we were, it was always right before or right after AF so we knew there was little chance of pregnancy. 

I started tracking my periods (can be irregular) and my CM around July or August so that I had a better idea of when i might ovulate. We weren’t exactly trying to avoid, but we weren’t trying to do it around ovulation time either. If they happen to fall around the same time, then so be it. Darling Husband had no idea when my “fertile window” was. 

We just had our 1 year anniversary a couple weeks ago and that is the first time we timed things with ovulation in mind. I still don’t feel like we are “actively” TTC but I guess techinically we are? But maybe in a very casual, dare I say LAZY sort of way??? I still feel like we are in the “if it happens, it happens. if it doesn’t? no biggie” camp.
