Just curious to see where we all lie on this one. Was this pregnancy planned or was it a surprise?

Hey, I was just getting on here to post a similar poll!!!!! No fair stealing my ideas!!!!

Seriously, I've been TTC for almost a year. This was our 11th cycle of trying. So this baby is very much planned.

This was a big surprise for us. We had planned to start TTC for number 2 next year. We haven't been super strict about contraception though. I was pretty sure we were past my fertile phase but I guess we weren't.

Considering it took 7 months of very well-timed BD, while I was charting etc to conceive DD, I am SHOCKED that this happened so easily and quickly. I know exactly which, um, evening this pregnancy resulted from.

Planned and worked very hard for! 10 cycles of TTC and 2 m/c's and now finally here we are!

I can't really say . . .I had problems TTC my 2nd DD (no issues at all with #1), so I was almost 100% sure I couldn't get pregnant. I thought I'd need progesterone again.

This was only my 3rd cycle PP-- the first I didn't chart, the 2nd I did but didn't temp on "the" most important dates (to count my luteal phase) 'cause I was sure I wasn't ovulating . . .but I knew our timing was all wrong anyway . . .and then this cycle.

So, we didn't think we could conceive but were not TTA.

Far too much info than what you're asking!

I'm with Paisley - vetrans of TTC 6 months +! Although in our case we were no birth control for over a year, charting for only four cycles. I started weaning off psychotropics in Feb or March 05, in anticipation of TTC. So very, very much planned.

Sorta both? With my endo, we knew I had a VERY small window of opportunity to get preggo again, but we weren't going to officially try for another month or so. DH was going on a business trip, I told him I was gonna get some before he left--two weeks later we had a BFP!! LOL

Both, kind of!

We had sex once this month. We've been not trying for a second pregnancy, but not preventing it either. I just have kept reminding DH that we have to do the deed if we want another one... but apparently, once is all it takes...

A surprise? - A shock more like!!! - but a very nice surprise of course! I have one DD - 16 months, and was planning on waiting until she was 3 or 4 to try for a second. This was some kind of miracle baby since DH and I are pretty consistent about contraception! VERY EXCITED FOR #2 - March 5 2007! I got my BHP YESTERDAY MORNING after figuring out I was 5 days late for AF.

Second month of TTC, last month I charted and worried about getting pregnant. DH got upset with me and said stopping thinking about it. This month I didn't chart and didn't think about it and just had sex whenever and it happened.

Definately planned as we are two women! This was our second month trying.

Hi Sam! How fun to see you here!

Planned, but still surprised that it happened so quickly!
post #16 of 43

kinda both

We decided this month to not try, but not not try. I got pregnant in the first month. We got pregnant with my daughter the first month trying also. I guess we are both just very fertile people. Thank G-D I was on birth control before we were ready to start TTC.

Big, huge, monstrous surprise! There is still the possibility I will wake up tomorrow and find that this entire day has been a dream...so surreal. I'm really worried about how dh will take it.

I'm getting excited though...it's kinda nice to have the decision taken out of my hands...

Planned and conceived during 1st month TTC! Though we haven't tried to prevent pregnancy in years this is the first time we actually said "the time is now" and I guess it was!
