I talked to my midwife today and after a long talk with DH, we're taking a break TTC.

Mindi, I'm still lurking on and off (obviously haven't been here in a couple days, if I'm just reading this two days later). I'm sorry you're needing to take a break, but I completely understand. I am with Michelle, in that you might feel differently once O time comes along (I've done that so often). But, I also want to say that since we went out and bought BC, this cycle, when we've dtd, it's been ENJOYABLE and RELAXING. I KNOW there won't be a pg. I KNOW AF will show up. So, I'm just taking the time to enjoy my DH. We're trying to figure out where we are in our marriage. Where we are with our life plans. What our identities are again (other than a TTC couple). We may join the TTC group again in several months, but I think for my sanity, I need this right now. I hope you find the same for yourself with a bit of a break. You and your DH are newlyweds...go do some fun things together as a couple. I know that even though my DH and I started TTC about a year after we got married (and were unsuccessful for a LONG time), we also look back fondly on those times as just the two of us and have some good memories of things we did together.

But, to also go along with what Michelle said - if you decide that you are done taking a break in a couple weeks or a month, then that's ok too. Sometimes it takes months to get your sanity back. Other times it's just the idea of taking a couple weeks off of the obsession that helps immensely! :) Stay in touch. You know how to find me!

Mindi, I think it was much easier for me to buy the BC, simply because I CAN'T get pg. If it weren't for a medical reason, I would not be doing BC at all! It really, sucks because I don't WANT to be using it, but you have to do what you have to do. But, the fact that it's kind of forcing us to shift our focus for a bit, it's just a bit of a bonus (even though I'm not totally in acceptance of how things are going). KWIM?

Aww, I'm sorry that you felt pushed to take a break that you didn't want to, Mindi.
