    Mine was a wonderful surprise as I was told I could never have any children.
    He'll be 18 next month.

    I planned the first one of ours and DH didn't care. The next was planned since we thought we had an oops but we didn't and were disappointed. The last one was a complete surprise!

    Well, I wasn't on birth control, so they weren't planned really but it wasn't a big deal.

    Our 1st was planned, but happened really quickly. I was off BC for two weeks and got preg. DD#2 was unplanned, but we "knew" it happened. I got preg with her when DD#1 was 5 months old.

    I love them SOOOOOO much!!! I don't know what I would do without them!

    Dd was very planned. It took help from a fertility specialist for me to get pregnant.

    Both were "Oops" babies. Kinda. DD is my "Diaphragm" baby and with DS we had tried (but not too hard) for over 3 yrs. After one M/C and a another year, I went in for my annual, to have my Dr. say "what would you say if I told you we scored?". (Bless his heart, he's been my Dr. for 10 years now so everything that happens to me is "we" to him lol!)

    I do kinda wish my kids were closer in age (10 yrs apart) but I'm thrilled I get to spoil them both as little ones.

    No oops. Met in May, engaged 6 weeks later in June. Planned for a May wedding & picked out fancy dress and put a deposit down. Surprise end of July, hey- we're having a baby. Moved wedding up to November, lol.
    We knew we wanted another baby & had our son 18mo after dd was born.

    They were all oops babies. With the first, we had a discussion and had decided to wait a year to have a baby. I was a week pregnant wen we had that discussion and we didn't know it. The twins, well, they were a total surprise. We were finished after the first. We had only wanted one child.
