No need to justify your reasons, but it's neat that there is a wide variety of experiences and different levels of need for avoiding pregnancy. Let's see where you are!

I don't expect my fertility to return for a while, but we aren't planning to avoid pregnancy; we are both open to having more in good time!

I put the second options from the top, not the grave, but the one under it. We want to wait a few more years before we have another, preferably after Aiden's in school. Plus, DH is finishing his transition to teaching now, and we are hoping he can find a job for next year. I've been the breadwinner for five years now, so it'll be nice to finally have two incomes. We don't have room in our tiny house for another one right now too. We need DH to have a job to get into our own house.

I voted fairly serious because I would like to finnish school first, but by way of using condoms during fertile times I would say that we take some chances. I would say that we are inbetween fairly and pretty serious.

I don't think I'd ever say "grave" because if God blessed me with another child at any point it'd be wonderful, even if my first reaction was "Oh no? How will we handle this?"
However, with that said, I put the next option down because I REALLY want to do some things before I have baby #3. I'm having my period, so certain I'm good for right now!!!

I voted Pretty serious but it is anywhere between grave and fairly serious. We have taken chances in the past, but we REALLY can't have a baby right now until DH is getting paid more regularly. We both want to TTC - so this is hard on us.

I also voted that it's a priority... we occasionally take chances. We both are okay with the possibility of an oops, otherwise we wouldn't be having sex at all. But I'd definitely prefer to wait before TTC

I voted fairly serious. Since I had 2 c/s 15 months apart and my son was stillborn, I am trying my darndest to wait. It is so hard. We are TTA right now, but if I got preggo, I wouldn't be that mad about it.... My main concern is letting my c/s scar heal.

Grave. As grave as it gets. Hence the reason I am still on birth controls and researching FAM so I know exactly what I'm getting myself into when I do go off the BCP!
