A couple of weeks ago I posted a adorable picture of these beautiful twin girls to my personal Facebook page. The caption read: “I want.” Boy did that get the people going. Let me explain. I’ve been engaged for a little over a month now. We’re scheduled to get married late summer, so quite naturally the conversation of babies have come up a time or two.

I must admit, the thought of getting pregnant a few months after jumping the broom seemed appealing to me. Who doesn’t want cute little babies, smelling like Johnson’s Baby Soft? On top of that, I desire twin girls. Cuteness overload right? However, once I had a few conversations with my best friend and cousins (who are married with children), I began to think twice.

Children are FOREVER and is a serious, life changing decision. The best gift I can give my future husband and myself is time. We need about a year of living together, just him and I. This will give us time to learn more about one another, and simply enjoy being young & married. Babies will come, but until then I’m currently in the process of discovering what type of birth control would work best for me.


Have you guys heard of

Bedsider is an online is an online birth control support network for women 18-29, which is operated by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. Did you know seven in 10 pregnancies among unmarried women 18-29 are described by women themselves as unplanned? It’s a scary thought to find out you’re carrying a child you didn’t plan for.

As I prepare for my big day, I had a chance to explore all of my options on I even checked out some of their animated videos, that are cute and funny, but most definitely informational and to the point. Bedsider is extremely helpful, because even though I’m 29 years old, I’ll admit I don’t have all the answers regarding sex and birth control. Also, let’s keep it real, I definitely don’t plan on going to my mother for the answers (love you mommy). However, Bedsider is a great alternative for birth control minus the awkward. Yep, it will help you avoid awkward moments like this:

No twins for now. Give us a moment. However, the list for babysitters is currently being created. :)

    When I was about 20 my mom found my pill pack in a suitcase I let her borrow. VERY awkward phone conversation.
