I do not talk much about contraception because we clearly do not use any.
We go by Natural Family Planning, but honestly we have not been too successful (have not followed too well). I have bought books and also apps on the iPad (Pink Pad app) to help in this journey. I have finally gotten my period back in the past few months, but you know how wacko they are after a baby. Our past journey has always led to me being pregnant well before my boys 1st birthdays. I would shockingly like to make it to Jude's birthday without being pregnant again. Not because I do not want to pregnant again, I do! I do want more kids but if possible I would love to space them a little further this time! Which means I need to follow some rules!
If you do NFP fill me in! What works for you?! I know, I know...it's called don't have sex when you are ovulating! haha! I just need self control! But in all seriousness. Do you chart religiously? Do you use the temperature reading? What works best! Spill your details!
I would love to do the temperature route but I never have a normal waking time. I mean no nights sleep is ever the same. Does that matter? I mean what if I get up at 2am to Jude crying? Does that throw it off? Should I take my temperature then? Or do I need a full nights sleep? I just get so confused because I never sleep or have a normal waking time. Any info would be great!
If you are curious WHY we do this method, it is truthfully the one that makes me the most comfortable. It also is the one the Catholic church likes, cha-ching! But I never take medicine, nor do I want any drug controlling my bodily functions when I can just do it naturally. It works (I say that laughing) for us, now to just get us to make it work effectively.
Spill those details ladies...or men (shockingly my hubs knows all the info better than me!)
