After careful consideration — or something — I have decided that even though I am a little worried of having an accidental knock-up before Best Friend’s wedding, I don’t want to stay on the pill until then, just for the sake of being safe.
I know that the pill is not like baby-poison, and that if I happened to get pregnant right after stopping the pill, it wouldn’t be a bad thing. But I still feel like it’s something that should be totally out of my system for a couple of months. It’s just my own paranoia!
I am so excited, I kinda just want to stop today, but I’m trying to be practical(-ish). I’m only in the first week of tabs, so if I stopped today, it would screw up my cycle and I’d get my period three weeks early … if that’s even possible. I was not the best science student.
Sooooo I am going to keep on keepin’ on for the next three weeks. Then I’ll have my usual week off, Aunt Flow, etc., and then … not take it again. Hopefully then I can continue on, pill-less, and not undergo too much body trauma.
I am very curious as to what will happen. I don’t remember what it’s like to not be on the pill. Will I lose the weight everyone says the pill puts on? Will I have bad cramps for every period?
I know a few girls who have gone off the pill because they said it made them “sad” and “moody.” Are you serious? Will this make me a happier, nicer person? Sheesh, Darling Husband might be in for a treat!
I’m Heather Laura Clarke. I’m a writer living in beautiful Nova Scotia, I have a 12-year-old son and a 10-year-old daughter, I married my high school sweetheart, and this is the story of my handmade life.
I have depression and anxiety, and I fight like hell every day to keep them from taking over my life. Creating things helps.
Whether I’m writing novels, decorating a room, busting out my power tools to build furniture, getting muddy in the pottery studio, sewing clothes, or cross-stitching a swear word, I’m all about using my creativity to craft a life I love.
I’ve been writing this blog since 2009, so if you dig deep into the archives, you’ll meet a bright-eyed 25-year-old newlywed who was basically obsessed with having kids, buying a cozy house, and supporting herself full-time with her writing. (Spoiler alert: she got exactly what she wanted.)
