My Subconsious is Afraid of Getting Pregnant

How's that for a title?

Lemme explain. 

Forewarning: This is a funny post not something very introspective!!

Hubby and I have been married for 10 months now. I'm only 22. We both want a family but realistically we think it's a good idea to give it some time. Thus...I'm taking the pill to prevent pregnancy. (If this is TMI for y'all I apologize and feel free to skip the rest!) If a *surprise* happens - miraculously - then we will of course be overjoyed but it is not what we are planning for at the moment.

If a surprise came, I swear would be fine. I want to have kids before hubby does anyway haha. I take my pill at 9:30 every night and I have an alarm set on my phone so I remember it. I carry them around in my purse with me so I always have them and never have missed one. Apparently my subconsious is terrified of me screwing up though.

Exhibit A. Two nights ago I went up to bed while hubby was still playing video games. I fell asleep and about half hour later he came up and said something and startled me awake. In my confused slumber I yelled out:


Yes. I seriously asked what I was doing three times. And then asked about my pill for good measure too. I don't even remember forming the words it all just popped out hahaha. I woke up a little more then and realized that A- I was sleeping (yes that's what I was doing) and B- yes I had taken my pill at 9:30 like normal. Silly subconscious

Exhibit B. About a month ago I remember bolting awake in the middle of the night thinking "I DIDN'T TAKE MY MEDICINE!" and then frantically  scouring my night stand looking for my pills. The more and more I looked the more upset I got so I woke up hubby and was like "HELP ME FIND MY PILLS THEY'RE NOT HERE!!!! AHH!!!!" and then...I woke up a little more...sat back down in bed and realized: A - I don't keep my pills on my nightstand so that's why you can't find them there.... and B - yes I had taken my pill at 9:30 like normal. So...I grumbled out a whoops never mind to the hubby and eventually went back to bed.

Exhibit C. About TWO months ago I woke up after snoozing like 7 times (like normal) and then sleepily got into the shower. In the middle of lathering my hair with shampoo I suddenly remembered HOLY CRAP last night I woke up in the middle of the night and went downstairs because I thought I had forgotten to take my pill. But in reality...I had taken it at 9:30 like normal!!! Then I got freaked out that I had taken another one or like five because who knows what your mind is thinking when you sleep walk to take your birth control at 3AM.... so after the shower I rushed downstairs to look in my purse. My pills were fine. No extras were taken. Everything else in my purse was fine...except one thing. The night before I had put a fresh pack of gum in my purse (still with the plastic on) and now the wrapper was unwrapped. No gum taken out. Just the package freed from it's plastic barrier. I am guessing that my sleep walking self concious remembered that I HAD in fact taken my medicine like normal...but since I was up I might as well unwrap my gum. Good thinking.

So. Seriously. Three different times. My Subconscious is FREAKED.

  1. Heck, if you had had a baby, which took you 9 years and 5 months to make, and she had acid reflux and cred for like, 6 months, 16 hours a day, I could understand if you were, subconsciously, a little freaked out about getting pregnant, lol!

  2. Hilarious!!!!!!!!!! but I can understand your subconscious LOLLL I started blogging just over a year ago and my two kids are now grown. The sewing started seriously about 5 years ago and I still don't have enough hours in the day. I admire all those wonderful young mums out there who run the house, look after hubby and numerous kids do their sewing/crafting and still have time to blog about it too. They do more in a day than I could ever do without having to take care of young ones so don't worry too much if you should one day get a surprise!!! you'll cope just fine and better than alot of us. Just relax and try to get some decent sleep you'll need your energy for when you have kids. LOLLLL

  3. lol. i wish my self conscious was afraid, she made me forget and then remind me in the middle of the night. one day she made me forget all together and VOILA! Baby #3. But i understand you are only 22, you have plenty of time. lol.
