Multiple kids, I had both
#1 unplanned sadly gave birth at 16 weeks
#2 very planned after TTC for 3 months now DS6
#3 was planned until the day after we conceived as we decided to wait another 6 months ops to late haha now DS4
#3 was a very well planned first TTC baby now DS2
#4 was an absolute total shock thanks to hubbies birthday treat haha
Sadly that baby became a molar pregnancy and was actually due to arrive this weekend
If it happened it happened
DS was a complete surprise. I still remember screeching at the doctor 'I'm effing WHAT?'
As for planned/ surprise this time round... Well, one of them was planned, the other not so much! It was still a surprise though, we'd been trying for a while with no success.
1st pregnancy unplanned. Well we knew it was a possibility but were going to try in a few months time - Sadly was partial Molar, No bub
2nd Very Planned. Was twins But apparently my body was a little slow- egg divided late resulting in TRAP (Twin Reverse Arterial Perfusion Sequence) and the boys passed away at a bit under 14 weeks.
3rd Planned. My Beautiful little boy. Almost 3 now
#1 Blighted ovum not discovered until 12 week scan
#2 surprise but sadly gave birth at 19 weeks due to incompetent cervix
DS Planned, huge surprise (lost it at 8weeks), DD planned
I picked planned because we wanted kids for years, but it was still a big surprise since we thought getting pregnant would require fertility treatment
Have had numerous surgeries, no regular ovulation ever, was told I would most likely never conceive.
1 unplanned, 4 planned
