Re: Surprise, Planned or Rainbow Baby?
We were married when we were both 22 and didn't have our first until we were 28.
Took us 8 long months to get pregnant with #1. I ended up needing to be on some meds to bring down a high prolactin level and had to have an MRI to rule out a pituitary tumor - all very scary at the time.
#2 took 4 months of trying and we got him on a month we thought we had no chance... we literally did it once during the fertile time - that same month was the month my grandma died and Richie ended up with a 3 week very painful case of shingles on his face/around his eye. So I guess you could say we were very surpised by that BFP!
This one was planned, but the shock came in that it only took one month of trying!
This is our last. Hubs is eager to get the V when this baby is out and we're all safe.
