I voted planned, because we have been TTC for a few months now. But it's a surprise, too. I really didn't think I would be pg this month, and if you saw my chart you'd know why. All the bd'ing looks like it's at the wrong times. I guess it was right somehow anyway :

Planned, using charting to pinpoint ovulation. Love the charting!

grr...it won't let me vote for both...lol...we had planned to get pg, two weeks later got a then four weeks later had a m/c, it was a surprise though to get a two months later, we thought it wasn't possible without an af after a m/c, so it was a bit of both for us

Planned. I went off the pill in late January. Got pregnant right away, then miscarried. Been trying since then. Hoping this one will stick! :

Planned, for the most part. However, I didn't expect to get pg the first week I was living with DH!! (We have lived apart for years, we're FINALLY living together. Lots of moving in the next month, but you'll hear all about that later, I guess.) I was impressed when I got pg last January, given that we weren't living in the same state, and I ovulated on a Wednesday!!

Being in academics, it would have been better to get pg in August, with a due date in May, but we'll make this work.

We just started thinking of trying for another baby, and we were going to officially start in July, but we got a little excited in June and decided to "practice."

And that's when I got pg! I'm still in shock, even though we were planning to conceive. Very exciting!

Well, a conscious (sp?) surprise. We weren't TTC by any means, had planned to wait until this winter. But I know exactly when it happened, because I even commented to DH that day, "Well we could have a little sister now." and we laughed about it.

Oh well, here we go...wanted a baby very badly but this is earlier than what we hoped. DD is a handful (more like 3 or 4 handfuls) and she'll be almost 2 and 1/2 when baby comes, hoping that we will have some kind of plan worked out by then to save all of our sanity!
DD is just very extremely spirited and energetic and independent and fearless, I have other people comment all the time on how she keeps me running and it is true! I'm going to have to work my muscles so I can keep running with her and carry the new little one along.

Pinksmommy - My DS is the same age as your DD, and they have all of the same qualities. Julian is spirited and as headstrong as they come.

That's kinda scary...I always say that Aiden is my "fiery" one...maybe there is something to that whole astrological signs thing!

Half & half! We wanted #2 and were starting to TTC, but expected it to take more than a year so the timing was a shock!

VERY planned!

A big surprise! My twins are only a year old!

Like lunadoula, we are two women, so definitely planned for us too!

Though with that said, it's very surprising that we are pregnant--we were visiting friends across the country, including our sperm donor, and tried for #2 since I happened to be ovulating during the trip, and got very lucky!

PLANNED! Surprise! Both!!!

We've been ttc with help for more than 2 years, and ttc on our own for 3 before that. We've had 2 losses and I am SO excited to be here!!

Sort of both. I've been trying for a bit, but not this month. This is truly a huge surprise. I've been so busy with my doula and CBE certifications that I've been at the hospital several nights a week. I O'd about 6 days after we last DTD, and wow! So much for TCOYF's rules!

Planned, just like our dd. It was first month TTC this time, so we were kind of shocked it happened so quickly.
post #37 of 43
I voted planned, which is true for my last one born in May, but the first was unplanned. But I love 'em just the same!

That's pretty much my story too!
