We chart and use condoms. I don't always trust that dh will have good enough timing.

Yeah that tend to be us too. Well, maybe a tiny bit more often. Our schedules just don't match up too well.

Re: How are you avoiding?

We're waiting til my baby's a year old to TTC again so we're trying to avoid. I chart and we use condoms during the fertile time. I hate condoms though but breastfeeding my LO is super important to me so we have to wait

Re: How are you avoiding?

We're using condoms and VCF for now. My dh wants a V, but I'm not really ready for that permanent of a step just yet. I would really not mind another surprise baby at all, but he would. So here we sit, just waiting I guess for something to change, since we don't agree

I wish we could use just nfp, but my cycles are insanely irregular. And just when I think they are evening out.... they go crazy again. I think I'd be pregnant in short order if that was all we used. I do keep track loosely though, and try to at least have an idea of when I ovulate each cycle.

Ha-Ha! Sounds like us right now, but hubby's been doing the pull out thing with an occasional oops. He just (the last two days) started getting nervous and made the suggestion of using condoms which I know he hates. I've been okay with an oops since the moment ydd was born, but kinda glad, with her sleep habits, that it hasn't happened.

My hubby and I have the same problem- he doesn't want any more and I feel like I would like one more. Mostly because, I have two girls and would really try one more time. Our problem is, we just turned 38 and concerned about having a child still in college when we're trying to retire. He does make a good point, but I just don't feel our family is complete yet. Does anyone else have differing opinions than their spouse regarding having another baby in the future?

We do have different opinions but I cannot carry another baby without risking my life or the unborn childs :-( I would like to think that one day that would all change however with each pregnancy the situation worsened. I would love to adopt in a few years when we are financially able to provide for another child, he on the other hand is solid about no more children period.
