  • We knew we wanted a baby, or at least my husband did when I told him he did, lol jk. I just went off of birth control, and a week before he deployed I found out I was pregnant. It was kind of bitter sweet, but I wouldn't have done it any other way.

  • they weren't "planned" it was we aren't trying to prevent it and if it happens than it happens, if not than when we thought it was really really time we would start actively trying (like charting etc..). so we planned on having kids and figured it would happen when it was meant to

  • We tried for our son for 11 months... took forever but he was so worth it! Hopefully #2 doesn't take so long

  • Neither one were "planned" but at the same time they were. We were trying for awhile and it wasn't happeneing so I thought maybe it was my weight. We stopped actively trying and I changed my diet and lost a few pounds just in time to find out I was pg. Same thing happened the second time.

  • nope, not planned he was a, ummmm....surprise....yeah that's it. lol I knew that I wanted to have children, but not with his daddy. I wouldn't trade my son for the world, but I was planning to leave his dad right around the time I found out I was pregnant, but ended up staying with him for a little over a year after I found out I was pregnant.
