Today I am thankful that we have been successfully using NFP for 14 months.

We've never been this successful in postponing a pregnancy for this long.

We were taught NFP by a couple who had eight children, after all.

It only took four kids for us to think we finally have it figured out?!?!

Hope I didn't just jinx myself.

But even if I did, a new baby is a great consolation prize:)

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Oh that is brave..thinking you didn't just jinx yourself! :)

  2. I am thankful for a good friend.

    You can steal the blogger's prayer...I stole it from a friend!

  3. Your babies are beautiful! Congrats on the NFP working for 14 months. I think my record was 15 months. I have nine kids. So I know what you mean. Wouldn't trade a single kid in. Not even the teenagers.....

    I love your new photo.... your children are growing up.
    I'm thankful for my wonderful family.
    Have a lovely day.

  5. That is so good and encouraging to hear! I am using the NFP principles/charting etc to achieve pregnancy right now, but I would like to use NFP to delay pregnancy after we [hopefully] have our first. So nice to hear a success story. i am sure you didn't jinx yourself! :P

    Congratulations on 14 months! We're at 11 months and NFP has been so amazing for our marriage. It's definitely one of the things I'm grateful for!

  7. I love the idea of NFP! Now if only I could get hubby on board :)

  8. We just completed an NFP refresher course. I'm due with my fourth any day now. We'd love more, but it's time to think about some more space! Just watch out for those family weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries in phase II, those are the toughest for us! Lol! Good luck!

    This made me laugh out loud...as I can relate. 17 months is the longest break we've had in four years! I have to say I have no regrets though!
