I don't know yet. Probably condoms until I'm done with BFing, assuming I can figure out a good pumping schedule, etc. I'll likely go back on the pill when I can seeing as SO and I can't seem to manage with condoms, haha.
EBF kept my cycle at bay for 19 months with DD, so I'm hoping it lasts that long again. After that we'll be charting/avoiding, which has always worked wonderfully for us. I like knowing exactly what's going on with my body because I have long, irregular cycles. I hate hormonal BC and I won't put anything into my body. Condoms take all the fun out of DTD, so NFP is out method of choice. Once we get through the infant stage with Henry, we'll decide whether we want another. Right now we're 95% sure that 2 is enough, but we don't want to make any surgical decisions just yet. DH will get a vasectomy at some point once we know we're done for sure.
Eliza Rose, born 6/9/10 ...and getting a little brother for her birthday! Baby Henry Wilder, due 6/7/13
My dh volunteered at my last appt to get the V done. I'm probably nuts because I'm having a c-section anyway and could just get my tubes tied, but all my female relatives that had it done ended up with hormonal problems and I don't want to have to deal with that. If dh chickens out, I'll get the copper IUD.

We've never gotten pregnant without actively trying. Even with using pull n pray during expected fertile times, which we did for a couple years when first married, and I honestly expected an oops baby out of that but we're not super fertile I guess.
I think we will sort of NTNP/casually avoid until we are ready for the next one, maybe when the new baby is about 2 years old. I also didn't get AF back until M was like 15 months old so I expect a similar deal after this one.
We are extremely fertile together. Jaleigh was conceived while on BCP, our first miscarriage was conceived while on the mini pill. Since we have decided 3 is enough for us, DF will be getting a vasectomy unless for some reason I end up having a csection. In that case, I will just have my tubes tied while they are already in there.
