I’d be a little bummed because we have a big trip planned next month that I’d have to cancel… but once I got past that, I’d be thrilled!  We are planning to start trying next summer at some point.

Cry..and be angry..probably haqve a panic attack. Then go talk to my husband and try to figure out what to do.

I’m 100% not interested in kids at this time in my life and do not know how I’d handle getting pregnant. It would not be a happy experience.

I would be very excited, but I would be looking for a job that doesn’t require me to travel like my current job.

@bmo88:  Firstly, thanks for reminding me to take my pill 😀

1. Freak out. This is a bad time to be pregnant!

2. Re-test, probably like a million times!

3. Talk to Fiance (he will likely be also freaked out, but reassuring)

4. Decide what to do next. At this point in our relationship and our lives, it would be VERY tight to raise a kid, but it would seem stupid to terminate (for us) only to have a kid in a few years.

5. Tell our parents (and stop renovating our house)

6. Take on more hours at work for as long as possible and work on a serious budget

7. Figure out how much wiggle room I’ll have in my dress (or how to make more) for any 3-month showing there may be

 

And oh yeah, go to the doctor!

I would be happy, but also a little panicked. My Fiance and I have agreed that from this point forward if I get pregnant we will still go ahead with the wedding as planned so I would be worried about the dress fitting. And planning a wedding while getting ready for a baby would be hard but I would be excited. Fiance and I want to start having kids pretty soon after we’re married so we would just be getting an early start.

Have an abortion. Neither of us want to ever become parents. If I had the money, I’d get sterilized right now.

I would be so screwed!  Our wedding is in almost exactly 8 months.  Right now is the worst time for us to get pregnant.  We’d probably move the wedding up/elope to accommodate the baby.  Once we got over that, I’d be overjoyed – Fiance and I very much want kids!

It would be unintentional, but we’d be thrilled! I’d just have to have an unfortunate conversation with my dear friend whose wedding I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid for in almost exactly 9 months!

Ah yes, that was me a few wks ago. First thing i did was re-test, then re-rest again and again until I had like 10 positive tests lined up on my bathroom counter. THEN I brought my husband into the bathroom and asked him what he thought this all meant lol THEN i wrote a post on Wb entitled “uh, I think I’m pregnant…” Then sat in my dark living room in shock for an hour!

Freak out, cry for awhile, ring my hubby and bestfriends, drink a big bottle of wine  and then make an appointment for a family planning clinic

We are no where near ready to have kids, we haven’t even decided if we will have them, but we are at least 5 years off, if ever.

@bmo88:  First I would call the hospital and ask to speak with the doctor who tied my tubes and give him a piece of my mind!

No, just kidding, I’m aware of the slight possibility that you can get pregnant after a tubal ligation. Anyway, I would be elated and depressed. Elated because I love babies, I love being pregnant and I would love to have a baby with Fiance. Depressed because I already have 5 kids, can’t afford another one and quite frankly I have come to terms with my youngest being 7, not sure I would really want to start over at this point in my life.
