    Both actively preventing at this point, as we aren’t sure if we want children. 

    If we decide yes, then it will definitely be planned. 

    My siblings and I were all un-planned.

    Totally UN-planned. We were 18, using condoms, 16 years later…best accident ever! 2nd one was planned because we didn’t want them to have a big age gap, so I had 2 kids by the time I was 22. Wouldn’t change a thing.

    10000% planned. Discussed it planned to start after my bday came of bc pills and within the same week ended up pregnant no charting or opks

    I don’t get the difference between NTNP and trying. Surely once you’ve made the decision to stop contraception then you’re open to having a baby? It’s still trying for a baby – just at a more chilled out pace, no predictor kits etc.

    youngbrokebride:  Very much planned. We never really set a timeframe after we got married, but figured it’d be at least a year… we were already in our mid-30’s. So, I went off BFC a month before our 1-year anniversary. It took a couple months to figure some stuff out, but after 5 months of trying (along with temping/charting) – something worked! I’m currently 7w2d.

    DaisyBlossom:  This always puzzled me too.
