TIming is very very VERY off here too. did I mention, VERY! I'm hesitant to say it was a surprise....its sort of weird. I only get 2-3 periods a year, and birth control didnt work for me because of high blood pressure and reactions. I had my second child, my son, almost 5 years ago, and we have not used any form of BC, or contraception of ANY sort since. We kind of went with the notion of I'm not terribly fertile and he pulled out most of the time (sorry if TMI). About 2 years ago we talked about having another, and werent sure we'd be able to...so we made a deal. If it happened great, if not fine too, and when I turned 30 regardless I would have my tubes tied and we'd be done. I just turned 28, and after actively trying for 2 ish years we just assumed it wasnt going to happen ever and were ok with that. Bad timing because I'm off work, and my husband's hours were cut but we are thinking things will be better in a month or two so it shouldnt be a big deal by the time this one comes. So, that was a long answer for yes this was a surprise, but not neccisarily unplanned I guess.
