Yeap, me! I was on the pill for 5 years and I am now 20 weeks pregnant. Funny thing is, I never forgot to take my pill. This little boy is our wonderful surprise, I was planning on getting off the pill in April (I got my BFP in March) anyways to start TTC in July/August. DH and I are thrilled.
I got pregnant the first time on the pill in November of '02 but unfortunately lost the baby early January '03. Turns out the pharmacy gave me expired pills--never thought to check for that. This time we weren't using any birth control and hadn't been for almost 2 years--just a good old fashioned oops! We couldn't be happier about it!
I was on the pill too. My story is this I would go on the pill for a couple years then get off it then in a couple months go back on it. When I was off it the guy I was seeing we would always use a condom because he never wanted to be a dad or anything like that. We ended splitting up because the relationship was rocky and I started to see someone else. I went back on the pill and been on it for like a year and a half. I had a gyno appointment on April 18 we talked about me going off it and maybe trying to have a baby(BTW 3 different doctors said I will never have a child). So I went and told her she said okay, I got off the pill the next day (April 19) and we started to try. I got my period on April 21....Like around May 2nd or the 3rd my boobs started to hurt, then around the 10th I had cramping almost all day and I didn't know what it was. I took a test May 13th and it was positive! I was shocked....so I don't really know what happened! All I know is the doctors were really wrong.
*raising my hand* ME! I'm having one! 37 weeks, 3 days pregnant with a birth control baby. I got on the pill in October/November of 01... I had to get off the pill for medical reasons in April, I think? So I went on depo provera (the shot)... I was on that for a couple months and gained like 35 lbs! So I said "no more" and decided to try the patch. I was on that for over a year when I found out that I was preggo. My doc says "Guess the patch just isn't for you!" Yeah, no kidding, just wish I had known that sooner!! But, I wouldn't change a thing. I'm ready for her to make her appearance now!!!!!!!!!!
Condom here!! Although I couldn't be happier. I posted my story in another post...basically tried for 2 years and then started using condoms to avoid me being pregnant on our cruise in Aug and then I got pregnant...LOL
I have three birth control babies, #1 I was on the pill, #2 was condoms, #3 was planned and it took 2 years off BC to get PG and #4 was the ring. My Dr says that getting both our tubes tied is the only way we will avoid getting PG. It's kind of funny that when I wasn't on BC it took awhile to get PG but when I am on it I get PG.
