Hey Everyone!  I'm a newbie to the group but wanted a place to be able to share in confidence whats going on in my life!  I've been with my SO for over 7 years.  We were married a year and a half ago and both have always wanted a family.  He's not ready quite yet but I'm super excited because he is definately getting closer!  Sounds silly but I wanted to be off BC for at least a year before we start actively TTC.  In Dec. 2012 I finished off the last of my BC and we talked about it and he was supportive of me no longer being on it with the understanding that he'd either have to use a condom or we would be "risking" getting pregnant.  So it's been a few months and at first he wasn't happy about the condoms but now he is getting more and more comfortable with the fact that I'm not on BC.  Who knows when we will decide its time to actively try or if we will get pregnant in the mean time (when its meant to be I know that God will make it happen) but either way I'm very excited about the possibilities!  Anyone else had a similar experience?

Welcome to the group!!

Congrats on baby making practice!! ; ) And no BC, I hate BC but I'm currently on the pill anyways..
I've never planned any of my pregnancies, they happened on their own. My 4th is a BC baby, I had her while on the pill...

My second and fourth daughters were birth control babies. Two different birth controls too. Same time everyday instructions didn't help me...and apparently you either, lol.

Exciting!

Are you using any sort of Natural Family Planning so that he doesn't always have to wear the condom?

Gosh its so nice to have all of your support!  A part of me was just waiting to get yelled at about being "irresponsible" or something.  So thank you!  As far as the Natural Family Planning I don't think that we are quite ready for that yet (mostly he is not).  Also I've only been off the pill for about 2 1/2 months and everything I ready about it says to really track it for a long time (like 8+ months).  Have you tried the NFP?  We have a mutual hate for condoms but both know we would be taking a risk by not using one at all.

I did use it in order to try to get pregnant, but the book I read *Taking Charge of Your Fertility* explained a lot about how to keep track to prevent pregnancy as well.
