I've decided to put off my TTC until I'm 100% sure that I have a man who would make a good father... I don't wan to raise a baby Ina broken home...

however me and this guy I've been seeing aren't using condoms... He's pulling out which isn't foolproof I know... 

My mentality Is that if it is meant to be it will be in gods plan... 

I guess my question is do you think not preventing is the same as TTC???

That's what I'm doing. When I was ttc actively I was stressing and always going crazy when AF was expected. I dreamt about it and everything I did revolved around a baby.but I still don't chart and take temps because I feel like it's too much work but every time I bd I had my fingers crossed. I'm not doing anything to prevent it this time as well if it happens it happens. Doing it like that keeps stress levels down

It's not the same. But I wouldn't even have sex w a man whom I wasn't 100% sure about.

As long as you are ok work him walking away if you get pregnant and raising the child in a broken home anyway.

We stopped trying, but weren't preventing, and that's when it happened. Good luck.

I believe TTC is charting, planned sex, temping, OPKs, or any combination of the above.

This for sure. Not preventing is not the same as actively ttc. But I agree too I wouldn't either have sex with a man I wasn't sure about 100% or at least use prevention. If your not 100% sure that this man would stick around or even want a baby I would suggest preventing it until you are sure about him. 

Quoting anotherandree: I believe TTC is charting, planned sex, temping, OPKs, or any combination of the above.

Yeah...im kind of old school. No whoopee until married. But even so, if you don't think this guy will stick around, I definitely don't suggested having sex, especially unprotected. That's just a recipe for a lot of hurt and bad situations. GL
