I am 7 months pregnant at the moment, and altho it was unplanned, I couldn't be happier. Unplanned definately doesnt mean unwanted!!!

My first was a surprise too, it all works out wonderfully, I bumped up my wedding a year once I found out but everything worked out well. She's 4 1/2 now and we have a 1 1/2 as well. Congrats and enjoy your last few days or a week! :)

My unplanned pregnancy was TWINS when my son was only 4 months old! (and i was on birth control) Talk about shock! We felt really confused and didnt know how to handle it. We couldnt afford one more let alone two more. Now we are in financial debt up to our eyelashes because of it. We went from a family of 3 to a family of 5 and a family of 5 is really expensive to support!

Wow. I'm sorry to hear that. Surely you still love your children though.

I would feel ecstatic. No matter planned or not, we all know where pregnancy comes from.So, I'm sure there's only so much of a "surprise" to it. I truly believe conception and birth are nothing short of miracles. I would cherish every minute.

My pregnancy was unplanned, but wanted, very wanted!! we didnt try to get pregnant, but we also didnt try to avoid it. I was scared when i took the test, and even took a second one to make sure the first one was right!! LOL. I was mainly scared because i still have a couple years left of college. But even though i have many late nights of homework and studying after my son falls asleep, i wouldnt trade him for anything in this world!!!

aww im so happy for you:) the closest thing i have to a son is my nephew. me and him are so close lol. he's four now, and i remember when he was a baby, before he could speak properly, everyone thought he'd have a speech impediment because he wouldnt pronounce certain things, so rather than calling me by my name, he'd call me 'boo' lol. and now im usually given uncle duty; taking him to the park, getting him mcdonalds happy meals lol, play place time, and so on. and not forgetting cops and robbers lol. umm yeah as you can see, he's the joy of my life:p cant wait till i have my own! i bet ill be more freaked out then though:P

I say about my son that he was planned but not yet scheduled. My husband and I both wanted to have a child very much but were not planning to start a family quite yet. I became pregnant when we were married about 6 months. That child is the light of my life. He is amazing!

Same here. We wanted to wait until we were married and both graduated from college. This way our son will be a part of our wedding day, just makes more special for all of us =)

Im 6 months preggo, and she was unplanned. I was on birth control, but something was off with my period so trying to get back onto a schedual I missed 4 days, thinking it wouldnt be a big deal (well guess it was...) LOL and we got pregnant. We wernt planning on getting married until maybe next year, but we bumped it up. So I had to plan a wedding in like 2 months!!! I was soooooo scared when I told my husband, I thought he would hate me for being so careless with the pill. But he was happy and told me he knew we were going to be together anyways and he felt he was ready. This is my first and my husbands second.

When you see your baby you'll be even happier than you are now. Babys are beutiful and they light up your life. Unplanned pregnancy are kind of tough at first but, it'll work out in the end.

First of all I apologize to anyone who has different beleifs than mine, but keep in mind that this is my personal opinion, again sorry in advance. I think all children are blessings from god that you can have a person to take care of nurture, and watch grow up, and best of all they love you unconditionally. I really think no pregnancy is unplanned because god has plans for all of us.

first of all, congrats & gl...... secondly, I have only had 1 somewhat planned pregnancy and I dealt with it no differently than my others, Children are a blessing...... I just had my daughter who was somewhat planned 3 months ago, got on the pill & here I am 5 weeks pregnant, at first I was scared because I already have a 4.5 yr old who was not planned, but I love him still and we have survived, & my 3 mo old daughter, now I'm going to have 3 & 2 are only going to be 11 months apart, I was so scared of how I was going to do it, but now I am excited....still dont know how im goin to manage 3 kids, but I know it will all work out for the best

I would freak out because I am extra careful not to get pregnant, but that is mostly because I don't want to have children right now and having one wouldn't be good right now for my body because of all my health problems. Congraduations to you though!

My pregnancy wasn't planned. While I was scared how her father would react at first everything turned out great in the end. Her father and I got engaged and I am totally in love with my baby girl! She gets cuter EVERY DAY!
