Yes ladies, it's me. Who would have thought I would be starting a thread on this board...not meeee. I distinctly remeber being in the peri's office 32 weeks pregnant with Luke and her telling me...you cannot get pregnant for at least 1 year...I was thinking this woman is nuts I'm never having another child. Well here we are. You're wondering what is she getting at...how old is Luke again...Luke is just 4 months old. What I'm getting at is that we had a little birth control accident this weekend...I just got my period for the first time on July 7th, started my bc pills one week ago and we were supposed to use a back up method for the first month. Here comes the TMI...the back up method leaked...yes 11 days after AF, which with a 28 day cycle means I am in the danger zone. Were the pills effective already??
If I get pregnant I will just scream. I wouldn't worry that much except we got pregnant with Luke the first month of trying. My OB and peri will kill me. My boss will kill me. My family and friends will think I should be checked into the looney bin (and maybe they're not wrong.) Financially if I have to go on bedrest we're in trouble as we completely depleted our savings being on bedrest with Luke. Not to mention the babies would be 12 months apart...would this scar Luke for life.
DH love that he is says God has a plan and we will just make it work. I have tremendous faith too, but the planner in me says what in the heck are we going to do. Plus it's like 2 1/2 weeks until AF is due....ahhhhh!
I just had to tell someone and you all are such good buddies now. I was afraid to even type this for fear it would make it more real. 2 children in 12 months...what have I (maybe) done:)
