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

I think he has come around a lot and is seeing the situation through my eyes. He understands my concerns and he told me he is content to wait until we are both fully on board.

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.
