How amazing amazing amazing is this!?? My sweetie-heart and I are going to have our selves a baby in 231 days! That's not that long at all!!
Not to worry, I've been mentally and emotionally preparing for almost 2 years now! It's just that the actual decision to MAKE A HUMAN was a bit overwhelming at times, so we kept procrastinating until this early Summer, or a bit earlier, something changed for both of us and we decided on a 2013 baby. The original plan was to make a baby in 2013. Knowing that and living with it for a few months, we asked our selves why we decided on 2013? Why not make a baby NOW!?
Conveniently "now" was my day of ovulation, which I knew of, because I studied my cycle rhythm via the book I SWEAR BY.
I heard of the Natural Family Planning Method from a few friends, and doubted it. But I've heard of the book - Taking Charge Of Your Fertility from my sisters-in-law, who both have been using the method successfully for several years at that time.
Of course I didn't believe them... but I was desperate not to be a mama yet, so I decided to get the book anyway and try the method on my self and then see if they were exaggerating or not. My fear of getting pregnant made me super stickler and careful to do all that the book required and I filled out my tracker like my life counted on it.
Some of my friends booed my decision of doing it the natural way and that put more pressure on me making sure to keep my self accountable to pay attention to all 3 indicators and study my body. It was even scarier and more nerve-wracking after I visited my "Lady Doctor" and told her I was off BC and decided to do it the Natural Family Planning way. She smirked at my decision and said everyone she knew that did it had a baby that year. Yea, ...but why would she support NFP when it will take my dependability off of her prescription pad? Anyway...
Well it's been a little more than 6 years of the Natural Birth Control, and only ONE try at making a baby! Suck an egg "Lady Doctor"! It works! like a perfectly oiled machine!!
I also knew I was pregnant a week before I got the home pregnancy test and all thanks to Toni Weschler's book. Get it!!
I purchased mine 6 years ago, and it came with a tutorial CD and this website > http://www.tcoyf.com < that was a big help during my paranoia.
Well, i'm off to stuff my never ending pit of hunger and then a nap! Aaaah the sacrifice...
