My two older kids were planned. Our youngest was a pleasant suprise. We weren't goin to have her so soon but oh well. I love that lil stinker.

Oh....with the 1st I was 19 and he was 23. With the last I was 24 and he was 28. And somewhere in between with our middle child.

I'm pregnant with our first. She was a "planned surprise." We were ttc, but were told by my doctor that due to a health issue I have that it would probably take us a while to get pregnant. That wasn't the case at all. It only took us 2 cycles. I'm due on Saturday, and I'll be 25, he'll be 26 when she's born.

neither. We weren't really trying to and we weren't really preventing it. We've always just been on the terms if it happens it happens. Two years of no prevention before it happened.

Planned. My first I was 15 & continuously guilt tripped into sex. I knew it was going to happen. My second I was 18 & hubby was 22 and she was VERY planned. Now we're trying for planned baby #3.

Not to pry or anything, but what made you feel like planning baby #2 at 18 was good? No criticism at all here! I'm trying to convince my hubby that it's ok for us to have baby #2. I'm 21 and he's 27.He's concerned that we'll be (well, I'll be mostly) overwhelmed with 2 kids (our son will be 2 on the 29th). Thoughts?

Well I guess it just seemed like the perfect time. Our oldest was 2 & hubby wanted a biological baby of his own, and we didn't want our children too far apart. He had a stable job that allowed me to stay home & we had a house. We lost both those things by the time she was born thanks to the economy but it still worked out really well...lol. We'd always talked about wanting a little natural birthed, breastfed little baby of our own. Now I'm 22 & he's 26 and we want another little boobie monster! We've wanted one for two years but waited until his job was a little more stable. Waiting was hard but both times it just felt like the "right" time. It's just right for us. I'd talk to him about it, maybe babysit a few babies. Show him you can do it.
