I can't believe my baby girl is 2 months old today, wow at how time flies. She's getting so big. Smiles so much and loves to "talk" to mommy breast feeding is going amazing, shes finally settled in to eating every 3 hours, I'm so proud I've been breast feeding for 2 months straight woot woot! btw I finally got my IUD put in this past Wednesday, the little sucker didnt wanna go in the first time lol, Dr had to take it out and put a new one back in. I've been bleeding ever since, which is weird since last time I got it after having DS I didn't bleed afterwards. Or it may be my period which totally sucks and it better not be cuz I heard u shouldn't get your pd for at least 6 months if you're nursing.. Oh well. What kind of birth control did you ladies get? And if u have the iUD, did u have any bleeding?



BIG GIRL!!

DH and I decided we're going to use condoms until I stop BFing, although right now it's abstinence because I swear that kid has a sixth sense about when we're even thinking about it LOL The other day we finally decided to actually go out and buy the condoms, just to have on hand just in case, and OMG we never knew there were so many choices! We always used to get them from Planned Parenthood or the campus health center when we used them, before I went on the pill. It's a little overwhelming actually having to buy them.

She is adorable!

I got my tubes tied before I left the hospital so I'm glad I don't have anything to remember when things get going because my children also have a sixth sense, making our time very limited.

Haha that's too funny. DH and I DTD once about 2 weeks ago. We used a condom which I had gotten from the home visit nurse. We wouldn't even know what to look for in the store since we haven't bought condoms in over 6 years lol

DH is going for the snip. I am also on the mini pill (which is also supposed to help my bleeding as I am more than 7 weeks pp and still bleeding a good amount - pads not panty liner amount). Ellianna never sleeps - so she also adds abstinence to the mix of bc.

This is exactly what we are doing. I'm on the same and DH is going next month. I am still spotting/ lightly bleeding

She's a cutie! I had my tubes tied during my c-section. It will be nice not to have to worry about going and buying condoms again. We've only used condoms since we started having sex 15 years ago

Same here. I think I'm finally ready to try DTD. I tore and it took a long time to heal. I can still feel it's not quite right, but I think it's good enough to try.

I laughed reading everyone talking about how buying condoms was overwhelming. I had the same issue buying lube yesterday. Holy crap the options!

What a cutie!!

SO and I are using condoms until I finish my first pack of birth control pills and possibly even after that depending on how we're feeling. I think the birth control pills are making me crazy. I'm more irritated and frustrated and have had a serious decline in my sex drive since I started back on them. So we'll see. I knew exactly which condoms I wanted SO to get, but yeah, the selection can be overwhelming if you haven't used them in a while. I also only know for sure which ones I want because I have a slight latex sensitivity so we get the non-latex ones and there's not too many of those.

As for DTD, we started back up the day of my 6 week PP visit after getting the okay. We're back to DTD every two or three days so far. Some days I think Anna has a sixth sense and other days she's just fine. Honestly, though, with the decline in my sex drive and how irritated I've been with my SO..I couldn't care less about DTD in the last week. I've still been giving in just to make him stop trying to get it! Lol.

I had an IUD (Mirena) after DD was born and I hated it. Six straight months of spotting and then it fell out before I'd even finished paying for it. Hormonal birth control (the pill) turns me into a crazy woman. Can't handle it. And we both hate condoms. We're very happy with the little family we have so DH is getting snipped. We're just using the "pull & pray" method until then. It's always worked for us in the past.

Thankfully our kids are great sleepers, so we've been able to get back to our routine of DTD 3-4 times per week...woo!

I'll get the Mirena IUD eventually, I had it after having Connor and loved it! Had zero problems and zero periods the entire time! It was awesome!
