Another month closer

It's May! Another month closer to TTC! AF arrived yesterday and she's a bad one. Sad I'm crazy moody and crampy too. boo!!!! But it reminds me that maybe, just maybe pretty soon I can be AF free for at least 9 months! Smile

Since I won't be working after the end of June, I'm hoping that we can start TTC in the Fall. DH writes some serious exams in April so I want at least 2 months leeway. I'd prefer 3 since DD2 was early. I'd like to go off the pill in September but not start trying until November. Of course I'm secretly hoping I still get pregnant in September....

I haven't had a real AF since 2010 ( I had to write that on a mammogram form a few months ago). Since I changed from the minipill during BF to a low dose monophasic pill I get random spotting but nothing regular. I'm hoping when I go off I am regular right away!

Hi Dani!

I didn't realize you were wanting another kiddo! Yeah both my kids were early so I hear you on waiting an extra month. I hope after you're off the pill you go back to regular right away! when are you planning on going off the pill?

Mel, we know we want a third but it is a matter of timing. Since we are moving back to Canada, our original plan was for me to get a job and become eligible for maternity benefits (takes 4-6m). However, the kids had so much time off this year and my job was so inflexible about it that it has made me concerned about my ability to work since my husband's now job won't be flexible. I found it super stressful this year to be continually weighing who could take the time off, who needed to be at work more and who had the days to be off. I don't want to star work before DD1 starts kindergarten in the fall because it takes her so long to get used to new environments so she would just be getting used to a new daycare when she would have to move to a new school.

I got pregnant with my loss when I went off BC and was charting to prevent so I don't really want to go off the pill until I am ready to be pregnant. I think the earliest I would go off would be September.
