well here’s my offensive remark:

I don’t believe there are any “accidental pregnancies”….unless you tried birth control, condoms and spermicide and STILL got pregnant….there is NO accidental pregnancies….

AND with the amount of information out there for teenagers/other people to not get pregnant and take care of their own sexual health there is no excuse….

ALSO, (putting this out there), instead of a kid these women/teenagers could have a detrimental sexually transmitted disease….between HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis C, etc…..and By The Way the ONLY viruses that condoms actually do anything for is chlamydia and gonorrhea…..all the other viruses are skin to skin contact, or they are so tiny they fit through the molecular structure of a condom….amazing eh? 

AND, before anyone gets angry…I did have an “accidental pregnancy” with a guy with one testical who was told he could not have children because he had too much chemo in that area….I was also on very strong birth control pills….I miscarried before a month….

Well I’ve had TWO count-’em-TWO surprise babies! Mostly because my periods are screwed up and I never know when I’m ovulating. We were married for both, but it’s definitely a personal journey each couple goes on. Congrats on no babies yet!

@hisgoosiegirl:  Whise angry?

If you spend time looking for ways to tell other people how to post in threads, you’re going to miss the chance to actually contribute something to the topic of the thread. 

As I said respect goes a long way.

@KatyElle:  surprise is different than accidental….the difference?  preparedness….and the way you put it….”surprise” is much nicer to say than you accidentally got pregnant….

Congrats on not having any babies before you wanted!

I have had 2 accidental/surprise whatever you want to call them babies and 2 stepchildren. I just got fixed and DH will be getting fixed too. If we have any more kids they will be miracle babies…lol.

Boring & unnecessary thread jacking aside, way to not get knocked up, OP!  Fiance and I have joked about this throughout our engagement – “I can’t get pregnant now, I have a dress to fit into.”

I have a 3 year old, it was not planned, he has a good life and I was a single mom. Hey, it all worked out in the end.

I’m with you–a tiny bit over 3 months to go and YES no babies ๐Ÿ™‚

I guess it is something in the Irish–because I’m Irish too and apparently ‘super fertile’ because birth control doesn’t always work well for me. After my son, I went through about 5 before I could get it right! You couldn’t pry me away from those pills with alligator teeth.

Congrats ๐Ÿ™‚

@smcs28:  Your medical statements are in error.  Here is what the Centers for Disease Control have to say about the effectiveness of condoms in preventing HIV/AIDS:

Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing heterosexual sexual transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Research on the effectiveness of latex condoms in preventing heterosexual transmission is both comprehensive and conclusive. The ability of latex condoms to prevent transmission has been scientifically established in laboratory studies as well as in epidemiologic studies of uninfected persons at very high risk of infection because they were involved in sexual relationships with HIV-infected partners. The most recent meta-analysis of epidemiologic studies of condom effectiveness was published by Weller and Davis in 2004. This analysis refines and updates their previous report published in 1999. The analysis demonstrates that the consistent use of latex condoms provides a high degree of protection against heterosexual transmission of HIV.

Condoms also lower the risk of HPV infection, although HPV can also be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. Of course, the HPV vaccines also provide specific protection against ths strains of HPV most associated with cervical cancer.

While condoms are not 100% effective against sexually transmitted diseases, it is clearly incorrect to say that, “the ONLY viruses that condoms actually do anything for is chlamydia and gonorrhea.”

Sorry to threadjack here, but I could not leave misleading information unchallenged.

And to the OP:  Congratulations on having made it!  And I do understand the whole concern about “winking.”  I got pregnant at one point when I was reliably using a diaphragm and spermicidal jelly every time, AND was nursing full-time, AND didn’t have sex anywhere near what should have been the right time of the month.  I was married at the time, and the pregnancy miscarried, but it was still a lesson that accidents do happen!

hahah! I thought of that too! I have a friend who was ttc last year and she said the most frightening thing was to have unprotected sex in the hopes of having a baby…it went against everything she’d been trying to do for years!
