    Default Was your first baby well-planned or a pleasant "oops"?

    I'm curious how many of us planned out the conception of our first child, and to which of us the child came as a happy surprise, or a pleasant "oops".

    Personally, my baby-on-the-way was well-planned, but was conceived more quickly than expected -- we can trace it back to the first time we tried! lol He was anxious to get here, I think!

    So what about you?

    All 5 were great surprises and was either on the pill, using condoms or had that shot that lasts 3 months. God obviously had different plans than I did.

    None of my kids were planned, by me. Like Danni said, they were planned by God.

    None of our five children were planned, just wonderful blessings given to us by the Lord!

    I have yet to see an "oops" made by God - and that is who planned each of our children for my husband and I.

    My one and only was a happy 'oops.' We planned on waiting at least two years after we got married to have a baby. I ended up PG 3 months after we were married.... LOL!
