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?

Both my last one and this one were a surprise. And the answer is yes after the shock wears off it is and was more exciting. I might add we thought we were done at 4, well number 5 came, then we were done for sure and 6 hit us. lol. Yes we were preventing but apparently on two nights we failed.
Well congratulations on all six of them!  :)

We planned the first two. And the third surprise because before we found I was just telling my partner I am not ready for another baby this year will try next year and then bam due in November.  we are so excited cause we are having a girl and my oldest is almost crying cause she's been waiting 8 years for a sister.

I was shocked, totally not planned. Starting over again. My daughters are 13 and 9. I'm only 6 weeks on the way so still little bit in shock. But also happy and very much hoping eveything is going yo he alright and the new baby will be healthy.

This is our first. I'd been reluctant to have kids but lately the husband seemed to be really wanting to have at least one kid. We got careless so...I'll have my first (probably only) right around my 40th birthday. I'm not really excited yet...more anxious. I'm 1/2 way along. I guess I'll get excited when I get farther along?
