Were you ever surprised to find out you were pregnant?

We hadn't been trying and my cycles were waaay off. I didn't even think of taking a pregnancy test until I was nearly 3 months in.

  • I was 3 months before the test said Yes! I was shocked as hell because I just figured I wasn't after so many negative tests

  • Yes! With my dd. I had been having crazy cycles for almost a year, and actually found out at an appointment with my dr. About regulating my cycles. I was 6 months along before my crazy periods stopped! :) ( i was almost 5 months when I found out with dd) and my dh kept telling me the kicks I felt were gas bubbles!

  • Yes, thought I was having periods turns out it was just spotting (my periods are light and short anyway) I was 4 months before I found out with my first.

  • was i!! i'd broken up with my then-bf a few weeks earlier, i was sitting having a beer (#3, i think) and chatting with an ex-ex-ex-ex-bf..when something he said triggered me to wonder 'when was my last period?'....we went to walgreens, tested, and whaddaya know? it was that guy who convinced me to go ahead and tell the father, too. we've been married 6yrs now (my ds's dad, not the ex-ex-ex-ex-bf).

  • Not really. We were kind of trying for a while but then we gave up and decided just to wait. A few weeks later I realized I was late for my period (I don't keep track) so I took a test for kicks and whaddaya know. Can't say it was surprising just wasn't expecting it anymore.

  • Yes, and no. We ran out of condoms, decided we'd trying the pull out method that night, and needless to say, one night of unprotected sex and here's my baby boy haha. I guess some things were meant to be and I can't imagine life without my boy so thank goodness for spontaneous stupidity! I have my tubes tied now so hopefully no more surprises.
