How's that for a title?
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:
"WHAT AM I DOING? WHAT AM I DOING? WHAT AM I DOING? DID I TAKE MY MEDICINE?"
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.
