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!
