Was it planned or a pleasant surprise?

Ours was a surprise. We had just begun talking about possibly TTC in December when he gets to his new unit. We didn't want to try until we knew about the deployment schedule. As it stands he is about 90% sure he won't be here when we have this baby - this will be the first one without him. But, I guess God had other plans for us and we are thrilled anyway!

We were certainly NOT trying. LOL We obviously weren't doing a good job of preventing either. I kinda figured I was pregnant though...

This was our first month of really trying but I was scared about becoming too hopeful in case so it was still a great surprise

We weren't trying 'per say' but we did want 2. We just had no idea it could happen this fast as our first turns 1 on Oct 11th. I hope they will be best buddies!

this time it was a suprise. we were going to wait until next january for a 3 1/2-4 year age gap. i went off BC 4 mos. ago because it was causing mirgraines. we were just timing everything and avoiding. apparently I O'd early, because we were careful with timing this month.
were so happy though!
DS was planned.

It was a definite surprise because it took 3yrs to conceive our 2nd. I didn't think it would happen without further fertility aid.

We have definitely planned this! And yet we weren't sure how soon it would happen because it was our first time TTC since my m/c, so it was a pleasant "surprise" in that regard.

Definately not planned. But like Admin-Twinkle didn't do a very good job! lol I was actually saying I didn't know if I wanted to go through all of it again, (diapers and such) since my youngest will be 3 this month. Ha and that was the same day I got the BFP! lol

My first two were very much planned. This one was a surprise. We also weren't doing a very good job preventing. But thrilled to be having another.

This was planned. It was our first month TTC since the miscarriage in May of this year, so I wasn't expecting to get pregnant right away. I was pleasantly surprised last week when we got our BFP tho.

Maybe he'll be able to take r&r when the baby is born at least?

And as to the question, it wasn't planned, but it wasn't 100% surprise, we weren't really not trying, we had been right up to before I got pregnant, but I got frustrated with trying not to so decided that since I so wanted another baby that if it happened, it happened. And well that seems to be all I need to do with my fertility...

We were not planning but not trying either. I have not been on birth control for approx 4 years, so I think we were way past due a BFP

Totally planned, I got the baby itch in July, so bad that when I would hear a baby cry, my breasts would tighten up like I was going to leak everywhere! DH and I discussed it and decided on at least on more baby. I took August to just take care of me, get started on my regime of vitamins. I was eating really well and I ramped up the work outs. We got pregnant the first month DH was here for us to try!
