Hi, everyone. I posted my info in the 'who we are' sticky, but I'll formally introduce myself here

My name is Sam, and I'm expecting my first baby any day now. I used fertility charting to get pregnant and absolutely loved learning about my body and feeling in control of my fertility. I know that there's no way I can go back to the pill or anything like it.

I was on birth control for 4 years before I just became utterly fed up with it. I tried several different types, but they all made me swollen, moody, and sluggish. Also, my chest would not stop growing! I had to have a breast reduction at 20. Getting off the pill felt so good! It took 3 months just for my cycle to become regular again.

Anyway, I'm going to start looking in to methods of family planning so I'll be prepared after my baby is born. I will most likely be charting and using some sort of barrier method during my fertile phase. These online forums have been a life saver since I started TTC a year ago, so I was glad to find this board!

Hi Sam, and welcome to the boards.

I mostly lurk in here now because I'm also pregnant (due in July), but I'll be back in full force again after baby is born.

congrats on your pregnancy and looking forward to getting to know you!!

Welcome! I'm Shawna. We use (and I teach IRL) the Billings Ovulation Method. I just recently weaned my 1 year old, it worked great.

Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy.

I am Christina and I have been using NFP since my son was 7 months old and still BFing (he is almost 3 years old now). Hope to see you around more soon.
