Whoa...let's hold on...

Sorry to be so late in the day for this...but I was unexpectedly out of the office all day and didn't get a change to blog this morning. Plus, I have been super hungover all day and I was a very bad girl last night, and I am going out again tonight. To make matters worse, I don't think I will be around tomorrow, either, at least not until late afternoon.

Maybe a little clarification on yesterday's post...I am not trying to get pregnant. I am not necesarily trying as hard to remain un-pregnant, but there are no plans to immediately get me all knocked up. The purpose of coming off of the pill is to be ready in case we decide, in a couple of months, that it is a good time to do it. But, it should be noted that we have not actually decided that just yet. I wouldn't call it "unlikely", but it also isn't probable just yet, either.

I did have an "oh shit!" moment, though. Vera (place unknown:-)) noted that I went on the pill at almost the same age that Munchkin is now. That is not entirely true...I was a little bit older than her (I said twelve years yesterday, but really it was a little over 11 if I really think about it. I started when I was 15...she just turned 14 in April) but still, it is a sobering thought.

We actually almost put her on the pill last winter, because she was getting horrible, horrible cramps and if they didn't get better, he doctor was going to put her on it to help. Fortunately, she seems to have grown out of that a bit, and they have been more manageable recently (I am sure she would love me broadcasting her menstrual issues across the Internet...hee hee). We are getting pretty close to TMI here.

Basic point...she is getting to an age where I did all sorts of things that I really hope she waits until she is older to do...

Now, I am going to go bang my head against a brick wall, since that is more comfortable than thinking about this...

Gosh...I can't imagine thinking about that with children. You think back to what you did when you were there age and just pray that they don't do it! Aahh! Stressful!

Hehe did all the baby talk scare you? ;) It freaks me out when people talk about it for me too hehe - and I'm always wanting a baby!

I'm jealous the pill worked for you for so long. It just messed me up. I'd rather the cramps and they are beyond severe so that's saying something ;) Part of the reason I came off was so that we could test my fertility (which will be soon) without any worry of the pill interferring with the results. Not that it's known to but we wanted to be sure.

My friend went off the pill 3 months before her wedding because her doctor told her it usually takes 3 months for your body to get fully back to normal. Well, she got pregnant 2 weeks later and was pregnant at her wedding!

So maybe still be a little careful!

Still just me said...

Yep, I was told it would take three months too. It took maybe a week.

I went on the pill at age 14 for the same reasons you almost had Munchkin on them. It helped a ton, but I'm glad she got better and didn't have to go down that road!
