anyone else "hopng' for a "suprise baby"? - Page 2

post #21 of 35
I would love to have a surprise baby, but not now while I'm using my current bc. I have an IUD and I would *not* want to have to deal with that issue. So my secret wish is for the IUD to just fall out.

I thought I kind of wanted a surprise baby until recently I took a pregnancy test and read it wrong : and *thought* it was a positive. I nearly had a heart attack as I already had really crazy day with my 2 very young children : At that moment the reality of having a third baby right now smacked me upside the head. I've had one surprise pregnancy in my life (my daughter) and the absolutely-freaking-out that happened makes me not want to relive that part of the experience. I suppose I felt that panic when I found out I was having my second baby too (planned and very much anticipated).

We don't use any birth control now, but I haven't had AF yet so who knows what will happen. At this point we are just taking it all as it comes along. I'd be okay with it taking longer than it did after my first baby (14 months pp), and I *think* I would be okay with it even if it happened now (depends on the day ).

Mine did, 13 days after I got it.

Yes, but it's highly unlikely

as I am very careful about using bc.

All 3 of mine were planned and we're not planning a 4th but part of me would love to be surprised.

Sigh.

Mine has been in for 10 months now. It seems to be doing it's job very very well.

We only have suprises and I do think that it is fun. We use BC as child spacing more than total prevention.

BTW-I am suprised that mamas are finding success using withdraw...

I would love a surprise baby. I still want one more baby (kind of hoping to have a girl next time), but my DH keep saying no more. BUT, he was supposed to get his vasectomy almost a yr ago and still hasn't done it. I told him if I get pg again, I don't want to get pg until about a yr from now. So, I'm hoping he'll warm up to the idea and then we won't really ttc, but if it happens, it happens.

Withdrawl has worked all to well for us. I also keep thinking that it will fail, but it is rather reliable.
I want a third so badly, but dh does not.
However this is not a good time for us, so doesn't that mean that we will end up pregnant? It always goes that way.

meme! and i'm so surprised i am, because ds2 is only 7.5 months old...
i always said i would have no smaller than a 3 year gap between my kids but i just feel so at peace with the idea, so we haven't been using any form of protection since he was born. it'll happen when it happens!

Yes (ooo, did I just admit that)
post #32 of 35

I got my surprise!

Yup....My Ayla was unexpected but soooo welcome! I really believe she's a miracle baby. (OK...statistically there's nothing miraculous about becoming pregnant using the withdrawal method)

Unfortunately, now my husband is so scared of another (he loves her more than life itself, but is overly concerned about the human population crisis...the very reason he didn't want any children: ), so he keeps his distance now.

one more thing

I don't even know if it really could happen right now b/c Ayla is 14 months old and I've been breastfeeding on demand consistently...we all sleep together, so even at night, anytime! I can't figure out whether or not I'm fertile (no periods in yet!) I do know it's possible to ovulate and not have periods...but I don't know if I am.

Hope you get your surprise... I have 2 girls and set of twins. We actually TTC see what happens, sounds crazy huh. But really wanted to have one more. I think I might be feeling all the syptoms!

I'ld like a surprise. I've had the baby fever for a while now. We plan to wait 2 more years, but I really don't want to. So a surprise would make me happy. I can't admit that to my man though. Maybe if everything goes well I can ask him once we move and keep my fingers crossed. As planned I'll be 31 with my first and he will be 36. I DON'T WANNA WAIT THAT LONG!! So please include me in wishing for a surprise.
