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!

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.

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!

After TTC for 2 years and being told I had infertility it was PLANNED! But I was in denial that we would ever get pregnant again....so in that case it was a surprise to see 2 lines on that wonderful test!

But a long awaited for planned surprise!
