I'm on the pill, mine is called Lutera, it's a combination pill. We seriously considered stopping a pack ago, but I decided to go one more round. March would be a good time to conceive for us, but if it takes longer I'm ok with that. I do hope my body regulates itself quickly though. Tomorrow is actually my last pill so I guess I'll find out soon enough!
I don't think we are going to actively prevent during February, but the chances of conceiving a pretty small. We have a skiing trip planned with family mid-month where we get to sleep on a pull out couch in a living room with siblings in an open loft above us so I'm thinking baby making opportunities will be limited anyway haha.
I've heard of people getting pregnant literally straight after they stop taking the pill so you never know! I hope it's really quick for you. Haha you're right though, sharing a room with siblings isn't ideal for baby making!
I was one of those people! I stopped my pill end of July and got my bfp 18 sept so it def can happen quickly. Good luck to you both, we will be ttc march/April for our 2nd. I've got the coil this time round so hoping I fall pregnant as quickly xxx
I stopped my pill (minipill) in the summer and my cycle came back almost instantly. I was so worried it would take a while so wanted to stop in good time but no it came back really quickly. So I have been tracking my cycles and temping since then so now I at least know when I ovulate- so hopefully it will be quick to conceive!
Haha I keep thinking that it feels weird that I spent so long hoping to not get pregnant (and buying a few pregnancy tests feeling absolutely terrified because my period was late...) and now I'm completely obsessing over it.
Good luck Sarah! Wow that was quick!
At the moment I'm passing the time thinking about our honeymoon in April (it's working quite well otherwise I might be tempted to bring TTC forward).
I started using OPKs just before I ovulated this month. I bought some on a whim at the supermarket the day before my phone app said I was due to ovulate and I THINK I caught my surge. I have one faint line then a couple of days of definite positives and back to faint again. I'll have to see when AF shows up to see if it matches up! I also bought 50 cheap OPKs off the internet and a BBT thermometer which I was a bit too excited to get in the mail at the weekend...
Oh I remember when I was super excited for my thermometer too! I think it is so cool to actually see how your body works from charting temps.
I used OPKs for one month but got really confused as I had dark positive lines for several days. I can also see clearly now changes in my CM for when I am coming up to ovulating just before my temp rise. But cool that they worked for you and you could see your surge!
Cool that your planning your honeymoon! Where are you heading (if you don't mind sharing)? I guess that is something to look forward to and an incentive to WTT with the prospect of some nice dinners and a glass of wine or two?
Well we'll see if they worked. Maybe I'm just getting my hopes up and next month I'll get nothing lol. I think I'm pretty good at guessing when I'm about to ovulate though so it will be interesting to see if I'm right.
We're going to the States. We're flying to New York, staying there for 5 days then driving around the New England area before heading to San Francisco. I am so excited about it so it's a good distraction! And you're right, I'm quite looking forward to the alcohol (we're in to trying local beers when we're abroad) so it would be a shame to miss that!
Yes although I understand your wanting to get going with the TTC now I do think it is really nice that you guys end your WTT time with a fun holiday where you can spend time together as a couple and enjoy non-child/baby friendly things just before TTC!
We have just started planning our wedding for December 2018 and I am hoping that I conceive first month (March) so I have a year to shed some baby weight. But that is quite a good distraction for me- pinterest for both the baby and the wedding!
