Tell me your accidental conception stories

blank stareFor lack of a better work I use accidental.  Me and dh were camping last summer with the kids.  I had forgotten my pill at home and figured we'd be ok.  It was a spur of the moment kind of thing and you must know with kids you take it when you can get it! lol

I was going under the assumption that it takes one month to a year to conceive after going off of birth control. So for one week and one time we took a chance.  Well I now have a beautiful baby boy, rounded out our family quite nicely, 2 boys, 2 girls. We found out too because I wanted to change pills because I didn't like the way the one was making me feel and the Dr always does a pregnancy test between birth controls.  So I get the call from the nurse, Amanda your test came back positive.  I'm sorry what, positive for what?! You're going to have a baby dear.  Oh crap!!! But it was so early in my pregnancy the nurse actually told me I had either miscarried or was very early in my pregnancy.  I went from not wanting anymore babies to praying that I hadn't lost one. 

How did you accidentally conceive?  How did you find out?

  • I am allergic to Hormonal BC. We used natural planning in combination with condoms and sponges... And I still got pregnant with number 3. The first one was a shock because my DH had been told he couldn't have kids. Number 2 was through a condom.
