    I was told I'd never have children, as was FOB. So we just didn't bother with any contraceptive. We both knew we were clean of any STI's, etc. I fell pregnant with DD and, tbh, I fully expected to lose her. When I didn't, she was classed as a "miracle baby".
    Anyway, fast forward a year and I am, again, 13 weeks UTD with a second "miracle" baby. After 6 m/c I'm classing them as miraculous as well. No one could tell me what was different about DD or anything so I just shrugged it off as a once-in-a-lifetime miracle and went on my merry way. So, there you have it. I'm seriously considering having my tubes tied after I have this one. I was done after DD, so this one is a huge surprise for me and I went through the consideration of termination but decided against it for my own reasons. Clearly, my doctors were very wrong.

    I was on the pill with DS and fell pregnant obviously it didn't work I think I was on antibiotics at the time..

    Would anyone like to comment on this?

    My kids have just adjusted. The older ones love the babies and spending time with them and the babies just have to wait if I'm busy.

    Sorry for the major delay in response, I went a little bit into hiding. We have been working through it all, and have decided to keep our pregnancy.

    There will be some pretty hard years financially and time management wise, but hopefully we'll get through it with 4 beautiful kids.

    To be honest, I'm finding it hard to get excited. I don't know if it's the fact it was unexpected, or that I feel guilty for considering termination, but I just wish I could feel how I did at the beginning of my other pregnancies.

    I can't get in to my OB for a scan until mid jan, so maybe that's a factor too?

    Hopefully time will help...

    @Hopingfornumber3 congratulations on your pregnancy!!! don't feel bad or disheartened about not feeling excited.. when I was pregnant with DS I considered terminating, I also felt I couldn't get excited.. I now have a beautiful 15 year old young man who is and always has been the light in my life! Just give it time and you will start to get excited and fall in love with your little bub xo

    Congratulations! The excitement will surely come, and I for one think that even in the hard times ahead, you won't regret keeping this baby x

    Congratulations! Maybe the embracement won't come until your first scan, first kick, or meet him/her face to face or maybe not until you see just how perfectly they slot into your family but it will come all the best with your pregnancy

    And you have to let the guilt go you're only human and you were trying to figure out what was best for you and your family. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that x

    My age gap is ten months with my two, and sometimes I think crap what have I done. Ultimately it comes down to my strong husband I think. You already have 3 beautiful kids.

    I wanted to abort H but couldn't bring myself to do it. Now our families complete and my tubes are done lol. Good luck I hope your ok xxxxx have a great Xmas xoxo
