It'll be a while

Our doc mentioned needing to discuss birth control now that the baby is here and my body is ready to resume normal female activity.

Birth control.

I responded to his bringing up the topic by stating something like "It'll be a while before we need that," which my doc took to mean I thought I couldn't get pregnant because I was going to breastfeed. The nurse quickly clarified the situation for him by explaining I was going to take full advantage of the four to six week reprieve that is extended as recovery time to women after labor. The discussion about birth control can wait...because there isn't going to be any sex for some time.

The doc. is just trying to prevent Irish Twins, you know, siblings just 10-13 months apart. Crazy, I know. But yes, no need to discuss birth control until your six week check up. =)

I think we've had sex, like, less that the amount of months our baby is now (9).

I can't believe he even brought it up!

Milk those six weeks for all they're worth!
