I keep hearing of people who are surprised to be pregnant but then when you ask about contraception there was a hiccup in contraception use (missed a few pills, etc).
Just curious. If you had a surprise: were you using bc? What kind? Did it fail or was it human error?

condom fail = second pregnancy... with perfect use, put it on before even touching down there, didn't touch down there after the fact. No rip or slip or obvious leak.
birth control fail = third pregnancy... took the pill at 9am every morning without missing one. Had a hormonal shift I was unaware of, got pregnant due to that.
abstinence fail = fourth pregnancy... also considered charting win
I got regular check ups and everything. My IUD fail resulted in my beautiful daughter.
we had a failure I was using copper IUD and for whatever reason i failed. I had to have it removed and it hadn't moved or anything.
Aww you didn't fail the IUD did
We also had two condoms break on us when we were MUCH younger (not at the same time...a couple of years apart), but followed up with a "morning after pill" within 24 hours each time and didn't get pg either time.
Mama to Nell (11/15/06) and Maggie (10/9/10) . AFTER 2.5 YEARS, I AM AN AUNTIE!!! HOORAY TEAR78 and welcome Anika and Brand New Baby Boy!!!! Circumcision: the more you know, the worse it is; please leave the decision up to your son!
At least I know now that any future pre-o sex will have to involve protection, no buts about it.
dd#1...on the pill for over 6 years, didn't have a period in over 3 (due to high physical activity) go in for my yearly pap in 2004, and BAM! I find out I'm pregnant.
After having dd#1 I started on Depo-provera...ALWAYS got my shot on time because I didn't want another surprise....well in spring of 2006, BAM! pregnant with DD#2!
After her, I decided BC just didn't work for me so I went to temping...worked great! BUT then fall of 2008 we were going to Disney and I wanted to get the pill again just to hold off my cycle while we were gone, so I took it for 3 months, and BAM! Find out in December I'm pregnant with DS!
I don't smoke, don't drink, never missed a pill, did everything EXACTLY as your supposed to, but I guess these little ones REALLY wanted to be here!
DH has an ongoing joke with my OB that he should have donated his little swimmers for research before his "V"...(Hoping the "V" doesn't fail too!)
