I got pregnant while on the pill. Nope, I did not mess up taking it, neither was I on an antibiotics. I had been on the pill for about 10 years. So, you can imagine my surprise. I am now 24w,2d pg with my first baby, due on
Well, I got a phone call from a very close friend of mine last night. She just found out that she, too, is pregnant. While on the pill. Wow! I didn't realize that this happened so frequently! I will definitely be exploring other b/c options after this pregnancy.

Hi there! I'm due with my "pill" baby Oct. 17th. My midwife really wonders where they get their effectiveness numbers that the pills advertised.

I know. It's so shocking. I am thankful that it didn't happen before (like with my ex-husband who is a real jerk). I have learned a valuable lesson.

My daughter Leila is a "pill" baby too. I will never trust it alone again.

Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!

Wow ladies, I had no idea how common this was. There are a lot of those "1%"'s out there huh. I thought my situation was pretty weird, I was in between birth controls but I'd been on it for so many years straight I really thought I was infertile! That is mostly because of the Depo, I'd been warned, but I had screwed up my BC so many times it was a miracle I didn't get pregnant sooner.

Nature is there for you.

yep, add me to the list! i decided after my first dd (conceived by just not being careful and not using any b/c at all) i didn't want any kids for a while. i scoped out my options and tried neuva ring, i thought it would be perfect, there is NO WAY to forget taking a pill everyday. well even with rhythm medthod and pull out SOMEHOW neuva ring failed as well... now a 15 month old (she will be 17months when the baby's due) and a newborn... it's almost more then i can bare to think about some days!

I have a 10 year old who was a pill baby. So I don't trust the pill anymore.

I'm a pill baby!

I got pregnant on the NuvaRing... it's bloody fool proof! However, since it thins the lining there wasn't enough there to sustain a pregnancy.

I have a pill baby that is now 7. I also got pregnant with an IUD in and that is suppose to be better than the pill. Ha! I had a miscarriage though when the IUD was taken out. Then I went on the depo shot because hey the only thing better than that supposedly is getting fixed. Well I hated the depo shot, leaves me in a constant blah phase that i compare to a mild PPD which I always suffered after my kids. So now, we are back on the pill which really a few of my friends and I are taking wagers to see how long I will last before I get "knocked up." I think if I do, it's time to tie the tubes to put an end to it once and for all.

Get this, I'm pregnant with a pill baby and I think it's genetic. Why?

My mother-in-law had three, that's right THREE, pill babies, first of which was my fiancee!! He thinks he's so funny cause the "family sperm is too tough for the pill!"
