    If you are whoever posted anon last week, just stop reading here. This is a positive time and if you don't have anything positive to say, don't say anything.

    I POAS again today. It was VERY light, but there was a 2nd line. Looks like a BFP!

    No, we weren't planning on it. Yes, we were preventing it. No, we have not DTD more than 5 times in the past month since I left. No, this is not what I wanted at this time. Yes, I had specific goals in mind for before I got pregnant again.

    Guess what, someone else had other plans for us. I'm extremely happy and this is a POSITIVE time(did I say that yet? lol) and no matter how I wished it would have happened, things don't always go as planned. I'm not going to spend the next 9 months crying because this isn't how I planned it--I'm going to spend the next 9 months celebrating!

    I'm not a child, I know how to prevent things, I know all of that--but as we all know, it only takes 1 time. So, if you can't say congrats, just don't say anything. This post is for my friends here. :) EDD is November 18.

    Congrats! My DSs birthday is 11/22. Prepare for lots of indoor parties! Everything will be just fine & you dont need to justify yourself to anyone.

    Congratulations, I am so happy for you!

    In addition to your defense about getting pregnant, no form of birth control is 100% anyway so there is always a chance.

    Happy and Healthy 9 Months!
