That's so sweet! Put that dough in a fun fund

Christine, don't forget to share!

DH and I had decided we would welcome a new addition last summer.. I stopped taking birth control in mid-June and we just went about our business as usual. He travels a lot and I found that if I plugged the dates of my periods into online calculator, we kept missing the important days that could potentially be O days. I was finding that coming down from years and years of hormonal birth control was making my body go nuts, so I was disappointed (but not surprised) that between travel and hormones, I wasn't getting knocked up faster. So around Christmas time, after AF arrived on Christmas day (lovely! haha) I said, let's just bone every day this month and see how that goes? I can't bother to figure out what day I'm ovulating so we just went for it. It was a very fun month, we went on vacation, and when I got back I was pregnant! So I think that the moral of the story is do it lots!

Also I'm glad it worked out like this - stretching the care/birth into TWO years would be horrrrribbllee for our deducible. Thank you, timely little baby!!
