Hello,

I just found this forum as I was looking for some place to share some feelings and get some support.

I thought I had responded to your post here but maybe it was the other one... Dunno...preggo brain I guess. Just jumping in to say congrats on your surprise baby #6! Like you've said..you weren't really not trying and sometimes things happen when we never expect them..I'm sure it will be great. It helps to have a place where you can come to and share with other pregnant mums that are going through it with you. Most of us here were surprised by the news..some had a hard time at first. warm hugs

Well, I feel better hearing of others in this situation.

We have 2 girls and 4 boys. Actually, Safeway stopped selling the usual contraceptive so I wound up with some new and apparently ineffective stuff. TMI I guess. We weren't trying but I have been very sad about my 6th growing up and after the first few nauseating moments of :Oh Gosh, what have we done?" I really got excited about the idea. Just excited enough to be really sad when it was all for naught. I would try for number 7.....but I don't think even my husband would be on board for that one. My 6th is 5 years younger then the twins and I did see the positives in him having a little friend. I don't know what I am going to do. Maybe I'll feel more reasonable in a week or two. Or maybe that little princess is just meant to be here and it will all happen. (The princess named Frank that is - bet it would be a 5th boy :)......) Good luck with your pregnancy and all that it entails.

Welcome and best of luck as you embark on this journey. We found ourselves unexpectedly pregnant with #4, having a 19yo, a 15yo, and an 11yo, and thinking we were finished having babies as well. Very shocking, but we were thrilled pretty much from the beginning. I understand that not everyone gets there that quickly, if at all.I think we all just get through these life suprises as best we can. That's all anyone can do.

It's an adventure, for sure!
