memelou10:Yes we planned it. I didn't think I would get pregnant so fast thought.. The doctor told me it would be about 2 years & I got pregnant on my first cycle. :) I couldn't be happier!
Thats what happened with me too. It took over a year with our first.
I wanted a holiday baby. And well...*looks at EDD*

No... not planned, but very very much wanted.
DD was an IVF baby and we figured it would take another cycle (FET or fresh IVF) to get pregnant again. I stopped nursing to hopefully get my period back so that I could prepare for a summer FET with my RE. I got one period and - PREGNANT! Shock of our lives.
So he wasn't "planned" because it wasn't even on our radar screen that it could happen. But we certainly wanted another baby. We just got very lucky and it happened much sooner than anticipated. :)
What a lucky story, sweetheart18! You are not the only mom I know who got pregnant right after IVF. There are more things on heaven and earth, I guess!
We planned our pregnancy in that my husband and I said "how about we try for a baby come 2010?" I talked to my doctor, I went on folic acid supplements, and I went off BC.
I got pregnant the first month. We weren't even "trying" like thinking about my ovulations or whatever. I was SHOCKED when I never got a period again.
Kitiara0364:We had been trying for 8 months before we decided to cool it for a while. First month we didnt try, we conceived.
Almost exactly this. We had tried for a solid 10 months and finally just gave up and figured it wasn't in the books for us. I believe it was that very cycle that I wound up pregnant.
Yes, though we were still surprised. We were told it would be very difficult to conceive naturally as I didn't ovulate & DH had 2% morphology.
Definitely not planned, but like a pp said, very much wanted.
July 2009 I found out I have FVL and was immediately taken off birth control. We were married 8/21/09 and took our honeymoon 3/13/10. We'd been careful, but after our honeymoon we had a slip up and bam, BFP.
EDIT: Sorry ladies, I thought I was on the 2nd tri board, didn't mean to butt in
This pregnancy was not planned... I would have liked to wait a little longer, til I was out of grad school and we were more secure financially. DH and I had been practicing the "withdrawal" method for a year and a half. I am telling you, that method works! Because the one time we got lazy.... BAM!
As my mother said to DH, "If we had waited until we were 'ready' to have kids, you wouldn't have a wife right now!"
definitely planned. miscarried last september at 10 weeks... had to get a rubella vaccination so needed to wait at least 3 months before trying.... started trying christmas day when my period was over and was pregnant in January. First several weeks was awful waiting for the initial doctor visit - had to wait until end of Feb for the first appt... I had AWFUL anxiety the whole time worrying about another miscarriage.
Couldn't be happier with how things turned out though! He's almost here!!! :)
I did not plan my pregnancy. Yes I know how a baby is made and was using contraception. I was on nuvaring for about a year and then I started having major back pain and a horrible kidney infection. I went to my general practitioner over the course of a month trying to make it clear up and he eventually told me to go to the ER. Lo and behold the first test they do is a pregnancy test (why did my GP not? I will never know). The NP came back in the room and said "Is it ok if your mom's here?" "Yes, of course" "Well, congratulations, you're pregnant!"
It took a long time for that to sink in. Eventually they verified it with a blood test in the ER and they sent me for an ultrasound. I was 6 weeks along at that point. The rest is history and me and my husband can't wait to meet Nicolai.
AndysGrl08:I voted SS because I was not on birth control, but we weren't actively trying yet. (just not preventing). It happened a couple of months sooner than we wanted, but both DH and I were both super excited when we found out.
This is pretty much our story too. Never thought it would happen so fast, but couldn't be more excited!
