Hi all
Me and my partner have decided over the weekend that were ready to try for a baby so I have come of the pill although I was part way through the pack but it's done now. I've read a lot that my body will be out of whack for a long time and that it could take a long time so here comes the emotional rollercoaster.
I think I'm going to struggle a bit as I first fell pregnant when I was 16 I decided the time wasn't right though and we didn't keep the baby. I am now 24 and in a different relationship with a mortgage and we both work full time. I just feel that I'm going to be punished for my actions in the past and keep imaging myself no longer able to have children. I know I need to relax first I need to hope my periods come back quick so I know that that's all ok and them I can hope that we can conceive

Money will be tight on maternity but I'm hoping to go back to work pretty quick with baby, if that doesn't work we will just have to be more frugal with money.

Try not to get hung up on what happened before. It is what it is.

All you can do is relax and just see what happens. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself.

Hi pinkdaffodil. I'm really sorry to hear about your experience but try not to let the past worry you...just think about the future. I am in a pretty similar situation to you - 23 came off the pill last year although not to try for a baby straight away (because it was making me depressed!). I was on the pill for 7 years. I had 3 normal periods then nothing for 7 months. Got my first AF in 7 months yesterday. So happy as this will be the first month we will be properly trying smile I know how you feel about the money thing too. DH and I have a mortgage and work full-time and have pretty decent jobs but it will be tight when the baby comes. But it feels right. My body and my heart is telling me it's the right time and i think circumstances are pretty good in the grand scheme of things. I used to think I wanted a really established career before starting a family but have had a complete change of heart. I don't think there's anything more important than family and am really excited about being a youngish mummy. I think we have to do what feels right for us! Would be good to support each other along the way smile
