DH had a vasectomy March 2009. I think a tube grew back. I also lost a baby in February this year too.

I didn't use anything even though I knew I should but he kept telling me I didn't need to and I didn't want to make him mad.

I was 20 years old when I gave birth to Maria... I was having an affair with my management teacher.... We didnt really use any protection because I never thought that I would get pregnant...
Well I did... I was really scared... But he stayed with me and now we're married.. I did get my Bachelor degree, but I changed school because I didnt want him to have any problems...
We've been together for the past 15years and now I'm pregnant again... I don't regret anything...

Hes the love of my life and Maria is a gift from up above and the little baby growing inside of me too...

My first two were planned. My third pg was in August (I MCed at 7 weeks). We had been using condoms from CD 10-CD 18, and I got pg on CD 25. Here we are, a month later, and accidently knocked up again! I didn't know where I was in my cycle because of the MC. I had bled lightly for several days before the big bleeding started, so I just didn't have a clue. DH, who is a MAJOR planner, wanted a morning quickie one morning and I was *shocked* he didn't get a condom. You know the rest of the story

I was the 1% of the population that the birth control didn't work, and I took it religiously for 3 years. :/

I messed up my birth control right before my period (like only 4 days to go). However the period never came. I assumed it was due to the weight loss. So bf and I just kept at it like life was normal (basicly un protected sex) while I waited for my period to start again so I could start the birth control again. Well, when it didnt come for the second month I took the home test. 3 BFPs and followed by a dr blood test, I am now 7 weeks pregnant! At least my bf is taking it really well (better than I am most days).

I missed one pill on our wedding night while we were cutting the cake- he was saying "Hey, your alarm is going off in my pocket" and I was thinking "Oh, gee... I left the pills an hour away!".

Two weeks later, BFP. I had even doubled my BCP the day after like I was supposed to.

Totally unplanned, but he's wanted nonetheless!!

Thank you .:Shortcake:. for my awesome siggy!

My first son was a result of a messed up cycle and DTD when I thought it was safe.

This one was the result of zero protection, and DTD with no artificial lubrication.

Pull out method does not work apparently. =)

I took the pill religiously, but still managed to fall pregnant! I was on Microgynon. A lot of people seem to fall pregnant on this pill, no idea why

My first was unplanned, I was 18 and taking Ortho Novum 777 that I got from the Health Dept., aparently it does not go well with Imitrex for migraines cause here I am 11 years later with a happy heathly 10 year old from it.

My second was and wasn't planned, ex-dh and I had just gotten married, wanted another one so I stopped taking my bc the week before the wedding, low and behold I got pregnant on the honeymoon. Just never thought it would happen that quick.

The one that I am pregnant with now was very much wanted, not sure about planned. I had a M/C on July 9th and just figured it was not in our cards to have a kid together. This is my now DH, but low and behold I was pg with this DS by the end of that same month.

I am going to go on the patch hopefully after this one is born and done breastfeeding, not too sure what we will do yet in the meantime.

With DS I had stopped bc in Jan of 08 and we were using the pull and pray method. By the end of Feb I was pregnant. But we were excited because in the beginning of March I finally convinced DH to start TTC 2 weeks later I had a missed period tested a few days later BFP.

Currently we are NTNP have been off BC since October and nothing so far!! Kinda weird how things work..LOL

I was using BC religiously since I was 16, and I still got pregnant. We made sure we did everything to prevent it, and it happened anyways. As far as I'm concerned this means I was meant to get pregnant. Either way, I am so excited to be expecting a baby girl, Katherynn Marie
