  • She was definitely a surprise, but very much wanted and rejoiced over.

  • My 1st and 2nd were planned, my 3rd pregnancy was an 'oops" (unfortunately ended in miscarriage a month after being confirmed). My 4th pregnancy was planned and thankfully a healthy baby delivered!!

  • I'm not sure how to answer. They were all very much wanted, but weird timing.

    With my first, we went through all sorts of hormone treatments, IUIs, and a round of IVF before I gave up and went off everything...shortly thereafter, we conceived on our own. So definitely a surprise, but very much a good one!!

    With our second, I said I was never going to put myself through all the interventions again, and we went through all the training to foster to adopt. Our license was in the mail when we found out we were pregnant all on our own...WOOHOO...but again, kind of a surprise.

    With our third, we figured out we were fertile LOL!! We were actually using contraception, but planned to TTC as soon as our 2 year old was potty trained (a month or two away), but got pregnant. I guess I wouldn't call 2 months early "unplanned" but well, she kind of was LOL!!
