    We had been trying for over 3 years and I was beginning to think it would never happen and something was wrong with me.We couldn’t afford fertility treatments, so when I found out I was pregnant it was a wonderful surprise!

    My son was my first baby and he was a surprise because we did want kids but not that early but he’s our joy and happiness and my second one was a surprise but loved and excited to see him 🙂

    My 1st pregnancy was a surprise, but I miscarried so then we tried … a month and a half later I got pregnant with my 1st. When he was 1, I conceived my daughter (also a surprise). My 1st hubby and I divorced and 6 years later I remarried. Hubby #2was 45, I was 35 with 2 fertility-affecting health problems (hypothyroidism and PCOS). We wanted children so we left it up to God… and I got pregnant just over a month after we got married … another (very good) surprise! 🙂
