I know there was a lot of freak out over this post. I had been giving my updates on my whole IUD situation via Twitter and wasn’t sure if I’d get around to blogging about it. I hadn’t held back before so I figured why stop now?
There were a lot of questions and assumptions. One of my friends went as far as saying:
“Did I just miss something really really important– you’re OFF all forms of BC??? Wowza! That’s amazing! I think I will just live vicariously through you right now because if one more person tells me right now is the perfect time for me to have a baby, I may kick them in the nuts.”
Hunni, I know how you feel, and no, my baby making machine isn’t “on” yet, therefore I am NOT off all forms of birth control if ya know what I mean (*wink wink nudge nudge*)
My baby makin’ machine is warming up. Since The Removal, it’s draining of it’s old oil and getting back to it’s eco-friendly state. I’m not brave enough to leave it on and running unattended yet… I’m still keeping a close watch and protecting it for now. Although I’ll have to tell you I tried these and I hate it. No… I think I’m allergic or something cause it’s no fun AT ALL. So instead I’m giving the NFP (which I’m going to have to do a whole ‘nother post on) a little try as well as some of this.
I guess the chances of a slip up are higher now… That makes me think if a baby is what God wants me to have, he’ll make it happen anyway. Although I know He can make anything happen… I’ve made that “anything” easier to achieve now, so “Bring it” I say, (If you want though, oh please, only if you want).
I will say though, I’m already paranoid up the Ying-Yang that I could be… Ya know–(I’m worried if I type it out it’ll be true). Before, it felt like there was no chance it was gonna happen… I mean, technically there was a .01% chance, but I’m not one to beat the odds… Unless it’s something bad, which in this case I guess I’m a little surprised it didn’t happen. ANYWAY… Yea, I’m not sure how great that stuff mentioned above works, but I guess I’ll find out in a couple of weeks… Wish me luck (no, don’t wish that I’m preg–AHH I almost wrote it!).
I can feel it already… My nervousness… I have a feeling I’m going to be spending a lot of pregnancy tests again *sigh.* No No… I won’t let myself. Not until I’m like 2 months late!
No, the IUD coming out did not hurt. That’s an FAQ I get a lot. I heard rumors it would hurt way worse than getting it in, but I actually didn’t feel a thing. A lot of people ask how I even got one before having a kid… I think it depends on your doctor. I have a couple other friends who have them too. And the biggest question of TTC?!?! And if it wasn’t implied enough above, the answer is “No.”
