I kwym.

We're terrified, for now. If this Babe comes home with us, alive and healthy, we'll be absolutely overjoyed! And if we knew that's what was going to happen, for sure, we'd be over-the-moon all ready.

unplanned. We were pretty happy w/ our 4, and weren't sure if we would try for more or not. We hadn't made a def decision on getting anything permanent done though
So we were both pretty shocked. But we are excited of course.

We were not trying and not preventing...it's how we roll. Lol

It's actually really cool that we conceived when we did because DH travels about 200 days a year and we conceived right before we went on our second honeymoon...first vacation without the kids in 15 years!

DH and I couldn't decide for the longest time whether to have a third child. We decided at the beginning of July to just try because neither of us could make a definite decision. We conceived two weeks later, so we were definitely surprised it happened that quickly.

We were pulling out for protection. He came in y twice this month, 4-5 days before ovulational and 7 days after. It happened on one of those occasions. We were shocked..... Now we have embraced #4. I'm happy my youngest will have a play partner like my older 2

Re: Was this baby a surprise or planned?

I was starting to feel done but everytime I talked to dh we could not make a decision. Dh would've been happy with whatever I chose but wanted another. I had days were I felt completely done and days were I wanted just one more.

We were NTNP. When I got the BFP I was like yeah thats about right. I am excited but I know I am done now. I think it is ms but I am not as crazy excited as I was with the other 3. On the other hand Dh has been talking about the baby and names more then any of the babies. That gets me excited--and I think he talks about it more now bc he actually is giving the oppurtunity of doing it instead of all me.

I can not wait for baby to get here and everyone is all safe.--Plus I tell everyone this is my way of getting a new car. I need a bigger one--mine only sits 5.

This pregnancy was planned but we got our BFP so quickly (first try) we were both a bit surprised. It took 8 cycles to get pregnant with our first.

Planned, but early. We knew we were going to go for #3, had planned on TTC in August, but apparently we got lazy about not trying in July
