Even Mums and Dads Agree

Last week the Husband and I attended our first NFP class.

I confess we were both skeptical at first. But we were willing to give it a chance.

The class was a pleasant surprise. In it, we learned that we've come a long way from our grandmothers' rhythm method.

Apparently, NFP and general fertility awareness are enjoying increased popularity as forms of birth control in this new environmental age. These methods are alternatives for people who can't or don't want to use artificial devices or hormonal forms of birth control.

Regardless of religious convictions, it seems that more and more couples are considering and learning these methods, and using them to stay aware of the woman's fertility cycle and timing of children.

Not to mention that it forces men to take equal responsibility for birth control. Which, as several of my friends inform me, also jives with the teachings of modern liberal feminism.

I guess we'll see how it works. But for now, it looks promising.

This morning I woke up with a thermometer in my mouth. The Husband had taken it upon himself to measure my basal body temperature, in case I forgot to do it myself.

It's nice to feel like part of a team!
