Today I received a letter in the mail AND a voice mail from the clinic with instructions that we need to either abstain or use a barrier method to prevent pregnancy even though I started birth control for our upcoming cycle with the donor. Are you kidding me? We've been trying for 5 years, is there really a chance I could get pregnant on birth control pills? I feel like we have a better chance of winning the lottery and we don't even buy lottery tickets. They repeated this in the voice mail twice so they must mean business. I guess we'll follow the doctor's orders!
I guess this message doesn't have much to do with our plans, but I just don't want to forget that I was ever told this direction. And now I have a new joke - "Honey, remember that time we were SO fertile we needed 2 types of birth control." Never thought I would say that.
