Well obviously I didn't start my birth control method soon enough. I've been married for 17 weeks and I am 16 weeks pregnant. We are very happy about it but I honestly never expected to get pregnant on my honeymoon. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I know it is a little late, or maybe too early, but I'm now thinking about birth control after the baby and want to know what I should be thinking about.

Congratulations on your marriage and pregnancy!  I understand it is a little surprising, but at least you and your husband are thrilled about it.  As for birth control options after the baby there are plenty.  Be sure to bring this up with your doctor as they will be able to provide you with loads more information, but to get started check out this website.
