Planned or Surprise?

At a gathering to celebrate the launch of her new party-planning book, celebraTORI, at NYC's Make Meaning, Tori Spelling admitted that her fourth pregnancy with husband Dean McDermott wasn't exactly planned. 

"All my friends keep asking me that: 'Was it planned?' Seriously, Hattie was one-month-old. Do you think it was planned? I was up all night with feedings. I don't know how he got make this."

How about you? Was this pregnancy something you planned or is your little blessing a big surprise?

Very much planned!!  We have been trying for 9 months and finally got the BFP!! We have been using ovulations prediction kits, so very surprised that it took us 9 months.  We are so happy that God has finally blessed us :smileyhappy:

Planned surprise for us. We were hoping to get pregnant, but because of my medical problems we weren't sure it was even possible so it was a very welcome surprise when it did happen.

very much planned.. we did a frozen embryo transfer so started planning all of this in March.. had to take drugs starting in June and transferred one embryo on July 16.   So the only surprise we had was that it worked the first time around.  I was excpecting us to do 2 or 3 transfers before it worked.  Knock on wood that this little girl sticks around till April.

Planned. My first was a suprise, and the second was mostly a surprise but not really. 

I was a nervous wreck actually planning, luckily we got pregnant the first month :smileyhappy: So here I am!

Definitely planned! I got off of the pill in June of 2011 and conceived at the end of July 2011, but it ended in Aug 2011 as a chemical....praying this little bean is a sticky one, so far so good! Definitely feeling the symptoms this time around! :smileylol:

Not planned but not a surprise either. We had been thinking baby lately and we didn't stop it knowing it could happen. Here we are, baby #4 on the way.
