Kind of freaking out here. I EBF my 3 month old, so my birth control options were limited. I started Jolivette in addition to using condoms. I have to take it at the exact same time every night for it to work properly. Well, I was 15-30 minutes late a couple of days, and now I'm late. The one time we didn't use a condom we had a little accident. I love the idea of having 3 children, but not NOW.

I'm waiting until Sunday to take a test, just in case, but I can't help hearing this voice in the back of my head telling me how screwed I am.

My family would never let me live this down. They were so unsupportive of us having a second kid.

 

It's Sunday! Thought I would update everyone. Dh is on his way home from work and is bringing me a pregnancy test and a refill on my bc. I'm officially a week late. Fingers crossed that I can still put that birth control to good use! If not, then I'll count my blessings and adapt as always. Thanks for all of the support, and WOW at the poll ratings!

Update!!!! Sorry for not updating sooner. I thought I did, but apprently not. I tested negative, so now I can add to the pitiful 49% who have had success with birth control. ;) The poll results were interesting to say the least!

How old was your youngest at the time? What was your reaction?

No, we have just used condoms for 9 years and no surprises.  If you are, and your family doesn't like it, piss on them. They don't get a say in your reproductive choices (or oopses).

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.
