NFP with spermicidal films during fertile periods. That's what we did for 3 years after Kostas and it worked well for us.

Another FAM/NFP family here.
We've pretty much JLIH for the entirety of our marriage thus far, but after my surgery last year I'm probably a whole lot more fertile than before. I think we'll probably want to attempt to manage things a bit more this time around, but we haven't decided yet exactly how careful we want to be.
I have my PP check up tonight. My doctor was trying totalk me onto the shot , but I really dont want to do anything hormonal with nursing wee dude. Especially since DH is talking about getting a vas done. So, I think till thats done, and we know for sure that it took, we will just obstaine. I have no lib any way, so it wont be too hard lol. Also, after DD it took a year, and for me to stopnursing completely before I got my cycle back... So I am not too worried.
It kind of makes me sad to think that Ill never be pregnant again, but we have 4 kids, and know its time for the next chapter in our lives
I got the mini pill yesterday at my check up. I'll take that until I stop BFing, then go to the regular pill. We have used FAM before and it worked well, but I decided I didn't want to do it this time because I'm sure we don't want to try for anymore children. I found myself to be always thinking about it and running numbers in my head, etc. And I'm afraid I'll talk myself into planning another baby. I'll probably be on the pill until DH decides to get a vasectomy.
I'm not really looking forward to charting. The only time I did that was between my two miscarriages to see if I had a luteal phase defect (no) and to increase our chances of conceiving (we did, quickly, but we lost that baby, too). Hopefully it won't be as stressful this time, since it isn't motivated by a loss.
