Oh Birth Control....how I miss you

So Thomas and I of course decided not to actively try for a little bit, but I am obviously not going to go back on BC; however I loved birth control (my favorite was the patch) and sometimes wish I was still taking it. On my BC my boobs went up a size (yeah, that was sweet), my cramps were less intense, I didn't get my usual once a month mini break out, and best of all I didn't bleed like a damn stuck pig....hello shorter, lighter periods...how I miss you....oh and lastly I was horny a lot! haha.

Secondly, Thomas is going to get his blood work done while we are TAB because with IVF he will have to do it anyways. He is getting tested for AIP (because we found out it runs in his family) in addition to seeing if he is a carrier for CF, and if either one of these come back positive we will end up doing PGD when we cross that IVF bridge (and this means we will go straight to IVF and forgo any other IUIs as well).

Thirdly, I am going to start a new tradition of posting one or two stories about my childhood or special moments in my life each week. I figured I have to give you something to read about since TTC is on the back burner ;-)

I sometimes miss birth control too. It was so convenient.

I'm looking forward to hearing your stories!

I'm glad you're good with the break. It's nice in a lot of ways. Kind of like birth control...

I'm so excited to hear some of your stories!

I don't miss BC at all. It made me puke for a day or two every time I started a new cycle when I was on the low dose kind, and the patch made me sicker than I've ever been in my whole life.

P.S.- You can comment on any of my posts any time you want!
