Rylynn was planned. I had it ALL planned out!!! I would get pregnant in May or June. Putting me having a baby in Feb/March I would take off the work the rest of the year (I am a teacher) and go back in Aug. Well 8 months later I finally got pregnant. I know 8 months is not really that long, but it sure feels like forever when you want a baby soo bad. Oh and I got my first a year ago yesterday!! I am a little sad that year FLEW!!!!

Ally was a little of both. We started trying but then I got really sick and doctors mis-diagnosed me with a wheat allergy. Turns out I just had all day morning sickness for 6 weeks. I didn't find out I was pregnant until a few days before I was 5 months along. That was a surprise let me tell ya!!

I voted both. I won't go into long details, but...We tried for 9 years to get pregnant. Only got pregnant once when I was 23 and lost the baby. Since then we tried all kinds of things TTC. So we decided to not give up, but try not so hard. Since we were getting depressed about it. So we stopped trying so hard, and BAM got pregnant. Which was a huge surprise. I got pregnant due to taking Metformin. Which was a lifesaver..lol..

I clicked surprise although we weren't preventing so it shouldn't have been that much of a surprise. I started having problems with BC pills and finally just stopped taking them and DH and I just decided that we would let fate step in, but it was still a shock to us!

Planned....After many years of TTC on our own, and having 1 miscarriage, we went to a fertility specialist. We had one failed IUI and one failed IVF before IVF worked. It took us 5 months to get pregnant once we started with the specialist. We consider ourselves very lucky, and wish we would have went there a long time ago!

Planned. I was taking my temperature each morning and using ovulation predictor kits! We began TTC on April 3 last year and we found out I was pregnant on May 10. We were very lucky it didn't take us long.

I voted a little of both. I had ttc for over six years and kinda found myself slacking off and not really paying attention- I guess I had started to lose hope. I still charted, so when my temp kept going up, and AF never came...

...and baby makes three!

Blake was planned. We were married in September of 2005 and decided that at the beginning of the year, we would start TTC. I stopped taking birth control pills in mid December and we got pregnant in March. Only 4 months, no too bad!

Morgan was planned. It only took a month of trying and I tested almost a week before AF was due and I was pregnant! And with this one we tried for 2 months and I tested before AF was due and I'm pregnant again! I guess you could call us lucky.

I should've said "A little of both." We were planning to try in January of 2006, but everyone said, "Start trying now. It might take a while." Well, lo and behold, I went off the pill at the end of August and was pregnant by my next cycle in September! We got really lucky, but were definitely a little suprised! LOL!

Total surprise. We weren't trying at all and Dec. 27 I woke up with real sore boobs and 'knew' I was pregnant... got my BFP January 13th last year! Now it's just me and my boy and I couldn't imagine life without him

A little bit of both... I had stopped birth control in October of 2011, but didn't start trying until January 2012.... DTD many many times during the fertile window, but nothing happened in Jan.... I was so very disapointed and depressed as we weren't going to try again until May(because of so many b-days that would put my due date from Nov-Feb) But i never got back on birth control, DTD once in Feb. and a suprise BFP! Didn't think it would happen in feb. with once time since we tried so much in January.....
