I don't know, this thought just came to me earlier... will you tell your child that he/she was unplanned? Do you think it will even come up if you don't bring it up?

I honestly haven't a clue... sure, if she asks, I'm not going to lie! But, I don't know if I'd bring it up... clearly, she'll know that at 17 I wasn't planning... I think? lol.

Even in pregnancy, the baby is always to be refered to as the surprise baby, never the oops baby!

If he asks when he is young, i will tell him was a surprise baby If he is older and wants to know the details of his conception, i will just let hin know he was unplanned but wanted by me and his daddy from day 1.

I just hope he waits longer than me before he has his first.


Thank You Sharon for my beautiful siggy!

I think it depends on the situation. I got pregnant with my first when I was 17 and then again with my second at 18. They are now 11 - 12 in January and 10 - 11March. So I have been very honest with them that they were planned but just not for several years later. I mostly want them to understand the trials of being a teen mom or just unprepared for motherhood in general. I stress to them that I love them very much and am very happy to have them but being irresponsable and having children so young took away a lot of things I wanted to do with my life - such as going into the Air Force. It has also made it difficult to provide them with everything they deserve.
But then again it really depends on the child both of my girls are mature and understanding so they get where I'm coming from and I waited until just recently to talk to them about - also they're not stupid they know I'm much younger than their friends mom's so when they started asking questions I was completely honest with them.
