Absolutely. I think even women who were trying can have surreal moments.

Seems like life had other plans for you! Give yourself time to let it sink in, and CONGRATS!!

Congratulations!!  Even when you’re trying to get pregnant I think there’s a natural “oh shit, really?” moment when you find out.  So yeah, I think you’re totally normal for feeling conflicted, particularly when you were actively preventing in a pretty statistically successful way.

Give yourself some time to process and don’t beat yourself up for not feeling 100% on board all the time.

congratulations!! one of my good friends also got pregnant on birth control and they hadn’t wanted to start TTC for another 6 months to a year. she also had the same reaction as you and now her little man is 6 months old and she can’t imagine life being any different!

We also recently found out we were pregnant! 3 months before we were planning to TTC. I actually cried (not happy tears) because I am such a planner and it was such a shock, and I did so many “bad” things in the two weeks before knowing that I wouldn’t have done had I known. 

 

Now we are over the moon excited and cannot wait to see the little one on the ultrasound and hear the heart beat at our appointment in a week and a half!

 

congrats and fingers crossed for a happy and healthy 9 months!

More than half of pregnancies are unplanned πŸ™‚ Though most won’t admit this lol. So technically you’re with the majority! Congrats mama! Wishing you a happy healthy pregnancy ahead!

Congratulations! I found out I was pregnant about a month ago – we definitely were not trying (and I guess not necessarily preventing πŸ™‚ ) – and it was definitely shocking! We were planning on waiting until the end of the summer, but life had other plans πŸ™‚ I was a bit terrified at first but now we are both so excited!
