New Plan!

Hi all! Well, DH and I have come up with a new plan. It's part good, but could be bad...depending on how the next 5 weeks go! My DH is going through his yearly audit at work, and that will be complete in the next 5 weeks. If it goes bad, he's afraid for his job, so as long as he doesn't lose his job, we will be going off the pill on June 28 and TTC right away!!! All his idea too! I would have still been fine with the Aug/Sept date, but I asked him "so, we'd forgo the 'being off the pill 1 or 2 months' as the DR suggested?" and he was like, do we really need to be off before we get pg? I know I've seen discussions on the board before about this very topic, and it's not necessary to have one normal cycle before you get pg is it? I would doubt we'd get pg right away, but you never know! But, the downside to this, is, if my DH loses his job, we would be putting it off for a while until he was stable in something. He's currently still looking for a new one, but I think we've decided to stay in Omaha for a while, considering I'm in a stable job with insurance and then we don't have to uproot everything. Anyway, just needed to share with you all! Please continue to pray and hope good thoughts for DH & his job, thank you!!!

Jlynn, WTT #1 (possibly as early as July 03!)

I hope the next five weeks go well for your DH at work. It sounds like a good plan.

Sending P&PT to you and your DH, I hope the next 5 weeks go great for him at work - and that you guys can start TTC soon!!!

I have read that doctors only really recommend that you are off the pill for 3 months before TTC so that you have a better idea of when you conceived. I got pregnant with DS after being off the pill for 2 months and had no problems with anything.

Good Luck and keep us posted. And if you have to wait longer, which I do not wish on you, we can be TTC buddies together!

I know so many people who thought they'd have a "safe" month or two after going off the pill before they'd have to worry about pregnancy and I can't TELL you how many of them got pregnant right away. Think about it, we all know people who got pregnant after missing ONE pill. I think the "two month" rule is to keep you from getting discouraged - you shouldn't EXPECT to get pregnant as your cycle may freak out a little, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try.

Congrats on your new plan! That sounds like a good one. I hope everything works out for your DH & his job. Sometimes my DH worries a little about his job--his company has had to do layoffs in the past and it worries him because they haven't hired any engineers after him about 3 years ago, so he's still at the bottom of the totem pole, as far as the engineers go. Thankfully the layoffs haven't included engineers yet, and we pray they never do! (But if they did, I guess God knows what he's doing with our lives!)

I'm glad to hear someone else isn't overly worried about the 2 month off the pill idea. I wasn't too excited about being off the pill and proactively trying NOT to get pg. I wouldn't want to think about it, especially with TTC only 2 months away! I'm in the middle of my pill pack now, and I can't decide if I want to take any more. I'm just ready, but we had said we were going to wait until Aug, but I don't see what's stopping us from doing it now! Geez, I'm so impatient!

Glad we can all vent to each other!

Nicki, TTC #1 Aug/Sept 2003--or earlier!

That could be fabulous news! I'll keep my fingers crossed that things go well for DH! Of course you'll let us know? July is NOT long at all (I'm hoping, LOL!)

Jlynn, I'm hoping things go great for that audit and DH remains there. I'm hoping July will be the month for you and you'll come join P4P with me. I'm praying for you!

I tried to post a reply once and I don't think it worked...I'll try again. SOrry if it comes up twice! I'll try to remember what I said:

I think your plan sounds great! p & pt to DH as he goes through the audit. Hope everything goes smoothly.

As far as trying right off the pill - from what I've learned, the only reason they want you to wait 1 or 2 cycles is so they can see what your cycles are like and also so they can pin down the due date easier. But it is not bad for the baby or anything and it CAN happen. This is my first cycle off the pill and we're going ahead and trying. Hoping to get lucky this month!

Good luck with everything!

Thanks everyone! Really appreciate your thoughts and words. I know 5 weeks is not very long at all, and these first 2 are short weeks (we're going on a little vacation this weekend), so really it'll be 3 weeks once that's over. but man! I'm not the most patient person either! haha

Thanks all!

Jlynn
