Yeeep.  Big surprise here.  One pp period and I was trying to NFP as best as I could since I just stopped nursing DD but here we are.  I literally had an appointment on Monday with an ob/gyn to talk about birth control options, but I guess it wouldn't have mattered anyway.  Thankfully, DH is ecstatic as he wanted a big family, but I said I was totally done after 2.  I'm slowly getting used to the idea :)  I think

Big surprise... just got married in July (second marriage after first husband died in '08)... second marriage for him as well- we assumed that my two girls would be our only ones, as we had reason to believe he was incapable of having kids- so BIG surprise!  A good one though :)  It will be a better one after the 24/7 nausea wears off!

I'll join in to the "knock me over with a feather" group!  Totally shocked!


I think I've "known" for a few weeks (boobs hurt, tired, yucka), but refused to take a test until Friday.


Still haven't told DH.  Waiting till after the New Year.

A HUGE surprise for us. I've wanted more for a while, but not quite yet! My husband is on his last semester of  school and student teaching, so I'm the only one working. Hopefully that will change before July! Plus, we have a trip to Disney planned in Feb - the first for my boys and the first time for me since I was 12 - I would have planned around that!


I was shocked when I took the test, I was expecting it to be negative and I about fell over when it wasn't.


One thing I'm noticing this time is a lot of people asking me if it was planned. Which is strange, I think it's kind of a personal question to ask. I didn't get that at all with my first two, but maybe that's because I was 17 and 22 and people just assumed (correctly!) that it wasn't planned! :D When I say sooner than planned, I've had people be like, ok - so planned.


What the heck is that even supposed to mean! It makes me feel like I'm supposed to go along with it, cause since I'm married and older all pregnancies just default to planned? I don't know. It's weird.
