  • It was deffinately a surprise. I was in shock and cried but then put on my big girl panties and prepared for a baby to be on the way and realised I needed to grow up NOW. And now I have my baby boy and my SO is a great father so I couldn't ask for anything more

  • Only 1 of my 5 children was planned. My first one was a surprise at 18 and she was wonderful. My second one was one of those stressed out before my wedding so didn't notice I missed a cycle or two but love her to death too. My third was planned so no biggie there. then we were supposed to be done. Birth control pills failed for the 4th one and she is actually the light of our family right now being funny and so outgoing. My fifth was a postvasectomy baby and while he is only 2 weeks old he makes our family feel complete.

  • Neither. We didn't sit down and plan to have children but we knew what we were doing makes babies and we were okay with that. It was only a surprise in that we were surprised it didn't happen sooner!

  • We had just lost a baby and were talking about how we just weren't ready to risk going through that again, turns out I was already pregnant. I thought DH was going to be upset since we had just decided against it, but he couldn't have been happier and same with me.

  • we didn't plan and we didn't prevent either.. When It happened it happened.. My son was a surprise because I didn't find out till I was almost 9 weeks preg.. like another person said stressen about our wedding and didn't notice the missed periods! :) it took 2 years to get preg with him! this time huge suprise because I stopped birthcontrol thinking it was going to take a long time like our son and the next month I was pregnant.. I WAS SHOCKED.. and love that see will be here within 2 weeks :) can't wait our family is complete!

  • Planned all the way. We had to wait until we felt we could afford it and husband had a steady job. And we wanted 3 years between them. Tubes tied after that
