Planned without much planning but lots of 'trying' if you get my drift! lol we really wanted a child but didnt want to add any pressure of counting dates or anything! so we just enjoyed doing 'it' lots and Oops look what happened! *smiles* took just over two years of trying tho!! xx

Me and hubby got pg last december which was an accident and a shock, but we were both happy, then we lost baby in March this year and decided that we really wanted to have children so were actively 'trying' until oct when I got my BFP

This is my first one and it was planned.

This is my first and it was planned. Was only first month of trying so still a bit of a shock at the same time.

Planned came off depo about 13months before i got pregnant (1st time) OH seemed rather surprised I think he thought it would take years his first words when i told him were are we keeping it. ( I could have killed him I have been trying to persuade him for years). Had a miscarriage first time though and found my self pregnant again 4 weeks later.(with no period )I measured 7+5 weeks exactly eight weeks since they told me i had had a complete miscarriage. which according to EPAU was impossible.

Mine was an accident, not the best timing am in my final year at uni, but both me and my oh are so happy and excited can't wait 4 baby to be here!!

Very happy to say that this baby was planned- it happened so quickly. I was on the pill (had been taking it regularly for bout 2 years) and one month when my period came I said to oh I don't think I'll go back on it I would like another baby and he agreed (I already knew he had wanted another). We only had sex twice that week and I fell pregnant!!!
I have two older children that were both unplanned and had said I would like to one day TRY so here we are 9 days to go!! I don't think it affects how much you love each individual child tho whether its planned or not.

Planned, we thought it would take longer but it took about 6 weeks which I was surprised by. Took three or four tests and they were all BFN but couldn't shake the feeling that I was - eventually got a BFP when I was nearly a week late.

i was deployed abroad so never took the pill when away as my husband was in the uk. i got home started taking pill again, ran out so went to doc who told me to have a period then take a fresh pack.....my period never came.... that was 29+2 ago! so not planned but i feel very blessed!
Dec 31, 2007 10:08AM
It was planned but only took a week (according to the dates) so it was a bit of a shock too but only because we thought we might have had a bit more fun trying for a few months!
Dec 31, 2007 10:14AM
My sixteen month old son was a complete accident, however this one was a happy accident weren't really trying but not really been careful either. Didn't wana stress ourselves out with dates n all that xxx

My first was an accident. I was on the depo when i fell pregnant and when i found out i had split up with baby's dad. Now we back together and expecting our second which was planned. Convieved a week after having the implant removed!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
