I too love this board! I feel really at home here. I don't practice or "agree" (not really the right word but I'll use it anyway!) with some things but I enjoy reading about it and learning more.
That is too bad you've been attacked for your NFP beliefs! I may not feel the same way as others about the reason for doing it but I respect everyone's wishes.
My OB is now only advocating NFP. He will no longer perform tubals or prescibe BCP's due to his Catholic beliefs. He has always been Catholic so I'm not sure why all of a sudden he stopped but he did. Now....he will refer his patients who need those things to the other dr in his practice so if you want BCP or a tubal he will make sure you get it from her but he will not do it. I respect his convictions on this. He did prescribe the BCP to me since it is for my PCOS though.View Thread
OMGosh Kim, that is too funny. Although I'm so sorry things are tough right now. You are right, it always happens at once. We have been on a run of bad luck the last 6-8 mo too. In fact I ended up taking a hardship withdrawal from my 401K. I know, you should NEVER do that but I felt we had to. Life sucks sometimes. I just relish the fact that when money gets tight DH and I stay connected. I know that money causes so many problems and luckily it hasn't done that for us.View Thread
THANK YOU! I've been looking for someone who uses it! I am excited to get my sample packs and give it a try. I only worry about stains. I've had issues with stains not coming out of things when I don't use Tide so, fingers crosed one of these works. What is your favorite scent? Does the scent stay on the clothes after washing?
I too have grown to hate BCP's! I really hate putting artificial hormones into my body. Luckily I have no real side effects it's just the idea of artificial hormones that icks me out. However, I have PCOS so BCP's are my friend Without them I have horrible cramping and will go 4-6 months between cycles (going more than 3 months between cycles increases your risk for ovarian cancer). I will also tend to put on weight. So the BCP's help regulate my PCOS. All that said, once we have #3 in the future I want to try to avoid going back on BCP's. We'll see how it goes.
There is also the 2 day method of family planning. You just measure your cervical secretions. If you were "wet" in the last 2 days you could be fertile so you avoid DTD or use condoms. If you have been "dry" for the last 2 days you are safe and should not be fertile. Here is more info:
I don't use alot of 7th Generation products but they are way more enviro friendly than most other companies. I had signed up for their newsletter awhile back and it usually has some great info in it. Here is the most recent one I got
Very cool! My DH has blogged off an on. He had a blog through my first pregnancy which was hilarious. He blogged about what we were going through and funny things that were happening. It was great to read.View Thread
