Nothing is 100%? Nope, that's something that I've learnt from getting pregnant. If it was, I would not be pregnant right now. What am I talking about? Birth control. The truth is that I was on birth control pills when I got pregnant, and I had been for years. Now I am not saying that there is not the possibility of me missing to take one but even if that were the case, it still should've been so much harder to get with child because of all the pills I'd taken before. Why I am writing about this now is because I talk to many girls that are on the pill, or have a spiral or something else and believe that they are invincible and as long as they are being safe, nothing can ever happen. In most cases this is in fact true, but in some such as in my case it obviously is not. Before my pregnancy happened, my mind was just as naive as many others and I was almost convinced that I would not get pregnant as long as I was on the pill but I've met a lot of girls since my pregnancy actually with similar stories to mine and I honestly had no idea how common it was for girls who are "being safe" to still fall pregnant. Clearly, I'm not much of an expert on medication so I can't explain what happens to the body when taking birth control. What is it that birth control does that prevents a person from getting with child? Why do some people anyway? I imagine that the pills just simply stopped working for me the way they should, and I now have reason to believe that it happens more often than we women (and men) can even imagine. In my case, I am personally so happy that the pill stopped working for me, because I cannot imagine not having my little Beanie now. Growing and moving inside of me while us out in the world wait for him to join <3 But ladies, for those of you who do not want children yet, and are sure about it, here is my advice to you: Don't take anything for granted. Birth control, just like everything else is not 100% effective and you can never be too safe! So go for regular check ups, know what you take before you take it and know how your body handles it. It is different for everyone.
I'm not the type of person to take such revealing photos of myself, but since my belly has gotten this big, I've (some days) felt more beautiful than usual and more confident in my body because now I have something to proudly show off!! <3
