leavesoflaurel - that is such a beautiful conception story! Awwwww. Truly meant to be! 

 

Its funny, because people keep asking me if this pregnancy was planned or not. Not sure what to make of that exactly .... 

 

But, this pregnancy was planned and happened on the first cycle, so we were a bit surprised it happened so fast! DD1 was a total surprise though, and the best gift ever!

thank you katiemaeee!
I feel incredibly lucky I think to be one of those people who made a baby on the first real try.... in terms of my cycle we've certainly had riskier sex based soley on of the actual day of the cycle.... but never had an accidental pregnancy. in this way, our open invitation really being received was the biggest surprise. this child feels incredibly meant to be and love hearing that your child was the best gift ever....I think I will feel the same way.

Complete surprise!!! 

I was about 4 months postpartum when I conceived. So I was still in my Im too tired to do the dirty much. Ofcourse we were a little bit careful when we would do it. Mostly I was relying on breastfeeding and lack of a menstrual cycle for conception. 

I believe my kids chose me as their mommy and I cant wait to see this new little sprite lined up to join our family :joy

I only get my period every few months, and my doctors said it would take years of medications to get it regular enough to get pregnant, which I wasn't prepared to do. So after 4 years, we just said to hell with it, after not having a period for 2 months, and the next day we thought we should maybe plan things a little more before really trying to have kids... Well, apparently once was the ticket! So although we took the chance, a month later (and 5 days before leaving on a volunteer dental trip to India) it was the biggest shock of my life! (Not so much my husband, for some reason...). Still getting used to the idea, but getting more and more excited as time goes on...

I love stories like this. Reminds me how magical a blessing children are!  :namaste

Surprise! And it's our 3RD surprise! You'd think we'd have figured this out by now. 

 

My kids are roughly 2 years apart. I had decided that if we chose to go for 'another', I wanted a fall baby, and i wanted to plan and try for it. I find my surprise pregnancies take a generous amount of time to emotionally prepare for- the child is wanted but I just wasn't quite ready! So I'm thankful for a 3-year spacing this time, but I just don't know what it is about July! Something in those hot summer nights! ;-)

My daughter was a surprise, but this one was totally planned.  We decided around last Christmas to try for baby #2, and got pregnant our first month trying, which sadly ended in miscarriage.  I was surprised to find that it took six months to conceive again, and starting to wonder whether something was wrong, when I found out I was pregnant again.  I usually chart, but after my miscarriage I stopped, so I have no idea when I conceived.
