Planned or surprise?
Was this pregnancy planned out or did it come as a big surprise?  If it was a surprise, after the shock wore off- did you get excited?

I tried with my daughter for 2 months and got pregnant in 2012. I had her February 2013 and started trying for baby #2 in December 2013. After 3 years of nothing in December 2016 I stopped trying and thinking of it. Had my plan all sorted out for 2017. I had irregular periods but all test (blood and ultrasound) came back normal so I was confused to why I wasn't getting pregnant. After I stopped trying I had a period in January (it was only 3 days which I'm always 5 and I bled so lightly I didn't really need anything which normally it's heavy then light) February came around and period was late but I was use to it so never thought anything of it till I was almost 2 weeks late. It turned out I was 5 weeks 5 days pregnant. Complete shock since I thought it wasn't going to happen  for a bit so I just stopped thinking about it. I'm now 31 weeks with a little boy due in October. Both my children are blessing but for sure he was a big surprise blessing to me

Complete shock! My husband has 2 children, ages 19 & 17, and we have 1 together, age 13. We've been together for 15 years. I was told I couldn't have anymore kids due to PCOS. Well clearly they were wrong. I am 19 weeks pregnant now. We weren't excited at first because we were definitely done, but I am so happy now.

Mine was kind of a surprise although we were 'seeing what happens' I didn't think it would happen so quick! Only took 2 months so I was a little surprised - I was panicking that I'm getting into my mid thirties and have always wanted kids so I'm excited but scared ! And I have a bit of health anxiety so I know have 2 people to worry over lol

This is my second pregnancy, and it was definetley a surprise. When I didn't get my period, I was having all these mixed feelings. I didn't know whether it was because I had stopped breastfeeding my daughter. When I researched online, it showed it was normal to miss period due to breastfeeding or when you stop breastfeeding. So I had no clue, until when I was reaching my second month of pregnancy I was getting anxious. So had to get a pregnancy test and ofcourse it came out positive. I was so emotional, definitely wasn't ready for it. But I am now excited and anxious to meet my 2nd daughter. I am now 38 weeks, so please keep me in your prayers.

Total surprise. I was off birth control for two months until my health insurance kicked back in. Husband claimed that his pullout game was up to snuff. Yeah, no. But now we get to look forward to this little Viking! I'm 37 weeks so it could be any day now XD

It was most definitely a surprise considering I had been on birth control since I was 15 and now I'm 26. Every day I made sure to take it at the right time and rarely ever missed a dose.
About a month and a half ago I had a pregnancy test done with my doctor.. and it came out negative. So I thought... 'Alright..I'm good to go...Just continue taking that pill and you'll be fine.'

...Little did I know though...
That DEFINITELY wasn't the case.  Last Tuesday, I got another test done since my scheduled period hadn't started. That day was September 5th,2017 and I found out I was actually pregnant.  Which means my prince or princess must have been conceived right after the first test was taken. Unfortunately, while I was on the pill too! Which I hope didn't harm the mini me at all.    
When my doctor first told me my test was positive and that I was gonna be a momma... I didn't really know how to act or react. I kinda just sat there staring into space..thinking to myself.
'Yep that just happened Sarah...
..Here is your purpose in life that you've always been asking for...It's real now..
It's finally that time for you to grow up and become a wonderful mom that you have always wanted to be...
It will be an absolutely beautiful experience but very challenging at the same time...just have courage and strength you can do anything u believe in or put your mind to. The beginning of forever starts now, cherish it with everything have.'
I do a lot of self talk and rarely is it that positive and optimistic. This time it was beautiful though.
While I sat there fighting to hold my tears back and keep my mouth from quivering. My doctor got concerned with how I was accepting the news. Literally I showed no emotions. At that moment, I was just kinda numb...but in a good way. The happiness was there inside me,  just very deep down. Along with being afraid, confused, stressed, overwhelmed and optimistic all at the same time. It was a undescribable feeling and a big rush of emotions all at the same moment. I just couldn't or didn't know how to show them for some reason.
My boyfriend was waiting in the car for me to get done. As I got in, I really didnt know how to break it to him. The fear of him not wanting to have a our child scared the **** outta me. But, of course, only negative thoughts run though my head.  So I just told him as bluntly as I could and he was in complete shock. We both just sat there in silence and processed the reality of what was in our near future.
... It was time to accept life on life's terms and come to the fact that everything does happen for a reason. Whether we know what that reason is or not.
We were given the gift to create our own family we have always talked about having.  
..we took and accepted that amazing news as a blessing in discuise. Now we are gonna finally have our own kingdom with a King, a queen, and a warrior.
