I totally understand how you feel! (and I have been off the pill for a few monthes!) Every month I go from hoping like crazy that this is it, to hoping like crazy that my period will show up.

I think it is normal to want both. I mean, it’s a HUGE life changing deal! I think the old, “there is not “perfect time” to start” saying is true. You just have to pull the trigger when you are as close to ready as you think you can be.

Sorry that is not really advice…but at least you are not alone!

I was on the pill for about 8 years and I stopped taking it in April. I wasn’t mentally ready to start TTC but I had been getting mid-cycle spotting for several months and I felt like it was my body’s way of telling me to get off the hormones! It was a little weird to no longer take the pill every day, but it was also kind of liberating. We switched to condoms until I felt more ready to start a family.

We officially pulled the goalie last month and I’m currently in the TWW – both hoping for and fearing a pregnancy! I think it’s very normal to feel conflicted. It’s a major change!
