I would panic. Fiance is unemployed, which would be a problem, and it would also affect our June wedding plans a lot. But the main issue is my type 1 diabetes – an unplanned pregnancy would probably be a disaster. I would probably have to do an abortion, even though I really would love to have a baby as soon as possible. It just isnt possible yet.

I would be like what? Is it really possible without things working 100% down there? We are really trying hard for baby #1. After that I would be shocked, thrilled, happy and nervous. I would tell DH as soon as I possibly could.

Dance around the house, have a moment of “holy shit, was this a mistake,” remind myself how much we want this, maybe cry a bit, post a pee stick on the charters thread, and give DH his “dad present” that I’m doing a crappy job hiding under the bed. 

But we’re TTC. : )

I would be nervous, I am 42 and worried I might be a little old. But, at the same time, I would be excited too! We tried to adopt my niece (long story) but it fell through. So we are not anti child. It might have been my chance to have a girl.

Shocked and wondering how in the world (I’m on one of the strongest prescribed BC pills), then excited and trying to come up with a cute way to tell DH and then start house hunting/saving like mad.

I’d panic. Three kids under one (or four if I have another set of twins, which is actually very likely for me) isn’t my idea of fun. 🙁

I’d be glad my dress has a corset back to make room for baby, haha! I’d be nervous and scared but excited.

@bmo88: 

My current life: Waiting bee, 1+ yr relationship, co-habiting (in a gorgeous 3-bed house, but which could do with rennovation before babies), starting a new job in 2/52, finanically independant, and good savings (which will hopefully be used on renovations and a wedding!)

….  so all in all I don’t think I’m in a position where the world would percieve me to be ready.  But are we ever ‘ready’ ? Is any time ‘perfect’ ?!  So much as it would be unplanned and utterly unexpected, I would be very happy to find out I was pregnant today

I would cry tears of joy- I have been ttc since June with several struggles. Then I would probably freak out!

I would cry tears of joy and tears of omg. We can’t wait for babies, but our lives are really too hectic right now. I want to give us a bit of time as husband and wife before starting a family. We travel all the time and have tons of trips coming up, so timing wouldn’t be good. Also, because of my family history with miscarriages and not being able to conceive, plus my own miscarriage a few years ago, I would have to be physically and mentally ready. I don’t think I’m mentally prepared for any baby struggles right now. But, all that aside and moving forward a year or so from now, I’d be over the moon!! Can’t wait to be a mama!

I would freak out. I have a job lined up for after graduation as a fulltime daycare teacher (free tuition for my masters!) and I would not be able to do my job once the baby was born let alone be able to afford my masters program. I would keep it, but SO would be buying my ring early and we would both have to find higher paying jobs or get additional jobs….where I work you can’t have a baby in daycare there if you’re a teacher there….shit…I better be careful!

Lol I would probably cry.  My wedding is in exactly 9 months so… that would mess a few things up lol.  And I’m in school for another 3 months.  SO it wouldn’t alter any of my schooling plans, but it would probably be hard to find someone to hire me if I were noticeably preggo… And well, a job is a pretty important thing to have if you’re gunna have a baby! 

Here’s hoping I can get pregnant in october/november/december this year.  Then it would be happy/anxious tears!

I would be extremely happy and terrified at the same time-normal, right? We just got married on NYE and are stable, but not stable enough for us. We want more money in savings, a home (though not a requirement, just a want), less debt (small student loan and car loan), and to enjoy friends’ upcoming weddings to the fullest. We are super practical, but man, sometimes the emotions just take over. We would and could make it work no matter when it happened and sometimes I think, why not now? Other times, I think about the cost of daycare and think “Hell no. Not yet.”
