  • in my opinion theres never a "right" time to have a baby, just have one when your as ready as possible physicall mentally emotionally financially etc.

  • Well, I'm currently prego with #2. I always wanted to have my oldest out of diapers first. I figured that gave us enough time to adjust to becoming parents, give my son enough time as the only child, and we'd be able to afford the extra raise in bills/baby items. We got pregnant on accident about 6 months before we planned on trying, but the only thing that wasn't in line was my son isn't potty trained yet!

  • We got pregnant... that was kinda a big clue! lol!

  • LOL, yep... when I missed a period. That's when we knew.

    We always said that #1 was the first not-planned, and that #2 would be planned. We weren't trying, but at the same time weren't taking preventive measures, because we're ok with having #2. Having #3 will be a different story. I don't think I want a #3, but, I'll take whatever God will give me!
