Let's talk some more about periods and birth control and pregnancy. I feel like I didn't fully explain myself yesterday. So, today I am going to delve a little deeper into the issues at hand - namely, all things related to fertility.
Did you know that I have only had two periods since August of 2005? That sound like crazy talk - right? But it is true. I found out I was pregnant with Porgie in September of 2005. She was born in June of 2006. I pumped for 6 months, and didn't start my period until I stopped pumping. I got my period in January and February and found out I was pregnant with Izzy in March of 2007. I've been period free since his birth in November of 2007. So, last week's pregnancy scare wasn't related to a late period or anything - I just took the test because I started getting paranoid.
Moving on to birth control. You would think that having two children under the age of two would have motivated my ass to get on birth control, but it didn't. I really didn't want to take anything while I was breastfeeding. So, John volunteered to start using condoms. He even went to the store and bought a pack. But unfortunately, he never actually uses them. So, we have reverted back to the withdrawal method. If you recall, this is the method we were using when Izzy was conceived. Not good for a family who really can't afford another baby right now.
I do actually want to have more babies some day. To be exact, I want to have four children. With that said, I do not plan on becoming pregnant anytime soon. Maybe in 4 or 5 years? Maybe even longer? I don't think John wants to have anymore children. It kind of pisses me off and makes me sad all at the same time. But I am a very persistent asshole, so I am sure if I really want to have another baby, I can make it happen.
Okay, let's review what we learned today - I am period free, I need more reliable birth control, and I want to have more babies someday. The end.
