If your BC failed this month would you be excited, panicky, or in total freak out mode? What are you using for BC?

Dh and I are using withdrawal. Dh used to be very good about making sure he went to the bathroom between sessions. Now here we are 18 months later he's not as cautious as he used to be. And I think this month there have been a few times where he didn't make it out quite in time, and maybe a few no bathroom trips. I think we would be excited and scared. There is just so much that can happen!

We are using condoms and pull out type of methods. I would be fine with it if it failed, although I would rather be due in Spring or Summer instead.

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!

I have a copper IUD. If it failed... I would be scared. First because being pregnant with an IUD in there is scary enough...second because I am undergoing tattoo removal and have no idea what the effect of that might be on a developing baby..and finally because I am nowhere near ready for another kiddo yet! lol
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

We're using condoms...I would be a little freaked out if we had an oops, and then excited. And then a bit sad as I'd have to go back to work now rather than in August as planned.

We've used condoms a few times, but now DH is just withdrawing. I haven't had a post-partum period yet, so I'm not that worried about an accident. I know I can still get pregnant, but DH is really good about withdrawing in time.

I wouldn't freak out or be panicky if we had an oops. It's earlier than I would want, but I'd be okay with it.

If we got PG now, I would be upset I think. We plan to sway pink and I want at 3 mo of prep before we try.

We use withdrawal and if it failed I'd be really excited. DH would be freaked but also excited. I just really didn't want to get pregnant before our wedding, which is on the 26th and I've already ovulated and we didn't have sex around that time, so that's not a issue. I'm only waiting till Sept because I would like to have a summer baby, but I wouldn't be devastated if I had a winter/spring baby.

I have Mirena, so I would be a little panicky about what could happen to baby. I would be excited for another baby, but scared about finances, daycare is so expensive!!

I'm on the pill and I take it every day, at the same time. If it failed... I'd be shocked, a little panicked but over the moon.

We use withdrawal. DH has been really good for the past 6mo, but is now not wanting to do it anymore. I think I am going to have to start charting again. I haven't had a period since DS2 was born 6mo ago, and am BF so DH thinks that is enough prevention. If it failed I would be worried about finances, and nervous haveing three three and under.

I have the Paragard IUD. If it failed I would be scared because the out come of the pregnancy probably wouldn't be good. Plus nervous because it would be sooner then we had thought!
