So my husband left a few days ago for some training. He’ll be gone for the next few weeks. As you know, we have seriously been discussing starting a family. We left it at “just sometime this year” and that was exciting enough. But him leaving for training prompted us to discuss it deeper and we have decided to being trying when he comes back. Ahhhhh!!!!!
He’s been so ready since the day we said “I do”. I am so grateful for how patiently and graciously he has waited for me. We’ll be married for 3 years this July. In all that time I have never said “I’m ready”. Never set a date. Never let the baby conversation get too serious. Never skipped a pill.
So I can’t blame him for being somewhat skeptical that I won’t actually be off the pill by the time he gets back, but he is in for a surprise! Something in me just switched and just like that, I’m ready to begin this new season and journey together. I’ve been on the pill for about 9 years. I am definitely nervous to experience the side effects of stopping the pill but at the same time I am really looking forward to learning my body. I am a doctors appointment in about two weeks to discuss coming off the pill, what to expect and trying to conceive.
I have always loved the feedback and advice you all have given me. If you have any advice, guidance or recommendations please please leave a comment. What did you wish you knew before stopping birth control? Did you experience acne breakouts/Weight gain or loss? Anything you wish you had asked your doctor/wish they had told you? Anything advice as we begin our trying to conceive journey?
