  • It was a pleasant surprise. We had stopped using BC 2 yrs before and I have PCOS and the Drs told me I couldn't get pregnant. 4 prgenancies and 3 live births later :)

  • It was a surprise. I was happy and had my family's support so things were fun during my pregnancy.

  • A little bit of both, I didn't really care if I got pregnant. I was happy when I found out that I was.

  • Both times was a surprise because the first time we had just moved to an entirely different state and we had been trying for three years prior to have a baby and finally get pregnant in the new state.

    Then with the second I had just gotten rid of all the baby clothes from my oldest cause we had been trying another three years for our second baby and didn't think it was gonna happen and a week later I was pregnant. lol

  • All three were not really planned, but not exactly prevented. We've been very happy each time.

  • A very pleasant surprise (I didn't think I could have children) we weren't trying.

  • I was so excited, we tried for a year and a half, I was on my last round of clomid and I was going to give up, it was too depressing. And then I was pregnant!! It was much easier the second time around, but still very excited b/c we tried again.

  • Both times were a surprise. With our first I got pregnant on our honeymoon...totally unexpected lol. With this one, we had been TTC for a year and a half. Things were going horribly and I was so frustrated. I gave up completely...quit tracking cycles, everything. And 2 months later I found out we were expecting #2 lol.
