Not Taking Birth Control to Get Pregnant

Group Therapy: I Want a Baby Now, but My BF Doesn't Know

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I was with my first boyfriend for 4 years and lived together, got along great . . . but  I always said I never wanted kids. We broke up because we grew apart. And now I have been with my new boyfriend for 2 years and we live together.

And for some reason, I want kids with him! It's all I think about. Getting married and having one or two kids. I dream about it and even hope my period will be late. The thing is, I just started taking birth control, but right before I started we weren't using protection, and a part of me wants to take a pregnancy test and hope it's positive so I can stop taking the BC.


I know it may sound crazy but I finally know I want to be with this guy forever. And he's going away for his job for 6 months to Afghanistan soon and I would love to be pregnant and have a part of him be home with me. Is this crazy or is it my "clock" ticking? Is there really a time when your body just wants to reproduce? It's just so weird because I was so against having kids before.
