Well, I had my 2 months off BCPs as a trial run and got nothing so I am going to get my next refill of pills and wait it out until December/January when I see my OB and find out what shift DH is going to next year.
DD has been sick this last week and while I was out of bed in the middle of the night changing sheets and giving my poor DD another bath the thought popped into my head, "What if I was nursing a newborn and this had happened? I wouldn't have been able to do anything!"
It has opened my eyes up even more that I am not willing to be a part-time single parent with a toddler and a new baby. So I'm going back on the bench waiting until we know what is going to happen next year.
Aww Jen well I hope everything works out for you. It does get a little easier though as the kids grow up. They become a little more independant and don't need mommy as much as a newborn would. I am sure you and DH will work it out though. GL

Well this is the first month off but not sure if I will stay off for long. My DH has already sayed he isnt ready again lol. We are down to 1 vehical right now bc we loaned our car to a friend, he takes the truck to work so I am not able to just go get it easily so I figure if he is wanting me on it that bad than when he gets home from work he will remind me or take me to the pharmacy. I would go on my own after he gets off work but I hate driving that far by myself. We live out in the middle of nowhere so its a long drive to go anywhere. But I've been off of my BCP for a week now so I dont think I will be going back on it this month even if he wants me to if he doesn't say anything soon.
