  • I was adamant I only wanted one until I was about 5 day slate for my period. I was sure I was pregnant so I took a test. I t was negative and I was devastated. Thus we decided we wanted two.

  • I got pregnant. Wasn't planning it then. She was only 6 months old when I got pregnant. Wouldn't change it for anything, though. There are 15 months between them and then 13 months between #2 and #3. It was crazy fun to have 3 kids under 3.

  • I had my first and was sick ALL the time so I vowed I would never get pregnant again. (not because I didn't want two just because I was so sick) So then I would watch my little man play all alone and I didn't want him to have to go without having a brother or a sister. So I am ot 22 weeks pregnant with a baby girl!!! :) (And I am not near as sick this time!)

  • My first born, had a boy.  Then I started getting thoughts that I wanted a girl and the hormones took over from there and I ended up pregnant with a girl.  With my 3rd, I was yet again hormonal and wanted sex and didn't wait to get birth control.  After that first encounter I was scared to take birth control for fear that I might be ALREADY pregnant.  Then after my 3rd, a girl, I decided well hell lets make it even and try for another boy.  Another boy due in 2 weeks, lol.
