While it may be way too much information for some, I know there are some mothers out there who are in the exact same boat that I am!
Between birth control, and breastfeeding I haven’t gotten a period since my postpartum bleeding stopped months ago. This leads me to a damn near anxiety attack every month when, like clockwork, I don’t get a period.
Of course, by now I should be used to it, but I’m not and I don’t think I ever will be simply because the only way I have remained calm, cool, and collective that I am not pregnant is the monthly cycle itself.
The only way I can convince myself every month that the amount of caution and birth control we use hasn’t failed is to take a home pregnancy test. Yes, seriously!
Call me worried, neurotic, or whatever else crazy-type adjective you would like but my biggest fear in life right now is a birth control failure, after ending up with our adorable little Addison that way.
I mean, I am hanging on to my last ounce of sanity as it is… that would just send me right over the edge. Although I thought my pregnancy with Addie was going to land me in a white padded room when I first found out.
Heck, I think it made me more carefree.
So until I have my IUD put in, I will continue with my monthly pregnancy tests to ease my own mind.
Do you do the same thing?
