Suprise here. Well... kinda. We weren't planning, but we weren't preventing. I had thought we might space our littles out a bit more, but I guess this is just how it's meant to be!

Surprise!! A big, big, not necessarily well-received surprise here. :

I'm doing great with it. We'll see how DP warms up to it, if he does at all, and if he remains my DP.

A surprise for us but also not really. I was using a fertility monitor and we bd'd on my peak day. I think we were surprised that I got pregnant though. We have a 3.5 year old and, let's just say that bding doesn't happen nearly as much as we would like

I have had tso m/cs though, so we want this one so desperately...and then dh is getting snipped!!

love this thread!!!

Not a surprise for us. I started to get the baby bug about a year ago, and had my IUD removed(sweet freedom!!), but we used NFP and it worked great. (I wasn't 100% ready yet, still exploring the idea!) We finally decided to be open to the possibility of another babe and I was pregs right away. That's how it happened with our last little one too. I had a friend say she saw "baby spirits" floating around me about six months ago, so maybe this lil one was just waiting for the green light from us!

first month after IUD was removed. We never really "tried" - didn't use OPK or temping or anything like that. We were pleasantly surprised that it happened so quick though we have never had trouble getting pregnant. First time was an accident, second time was on the 3rd cycle after birth. We are blessed with fertility I guess.

BFP = Bona Fide Positive

A positive pregnancy test, that is...

Oh. Thank you.

It reminds me of a military acromyn. It doesn't make any sense at all, then you find out what the actual letters stand for, and you think "what? how did that end up getting used?" I guess I get it now!!!

I kept thinking the P stood for pregnancy, but I couldn't for the life of me figure the rest out!!!!

I thought BFP = Big, fat positive. As in a big, fat positive home pregnancy test. And opposed to a BFN which would be Big, fat negative (negative home pregnancy test).

It was somewhat of a suprise to us. We were planning on TCC starting in January. I had stopped charting once he left in August (since I didn't think that I would see him again until December) and by chance I got to see him for about a day in October.

It was a bit of a surprise for us, because we've been TTC for three years(with a few months off after a miscarriage), and I was just about to break down and make an appointment with an RE.

I am so, so happy and thankful.

Really unexpected. I am BF my 22 month old DD and I went on BC Sept 29 and thought it was just a side effect of the BC when I missed my peirod. Then I started showing signs of PG, and I thought my niples just hurt becuse my DD was a bit rough while nurrsing. Then I started geting really hungry. I took a pg test on Halloween and SUPRISE it was +. I am veary happy but a little worryed becuse I was taking BC for soo long.
