My first time I found out I was pregnant was right after I got home from basic training and for poops and giggles took a test and I was but I lost that baby then a few months later I was moving and I fell down step on my back side and when the doctors came in the room the said well sorry we can't do anything for you you're pregnant. The first person I told was my mom. I didn't plan any of my pregnancy but I was happy when i found out and now I have a crazy teething 10 month old

I found out i was pregnant when i was 17. I just did a regular home pregnancy test. my partner was at home, so I told him first. He was really excited.
I told my step father second, he was stressed, then had a shot of Scotch, then got really clucky, lol.
When I started showing( around 4 months) I told my mum. I expected her to try to kill me, but she was surprisingly supportive. I told her that my baby was an accident, but that was a lie. Me and my fiance had planned the baby.

for me, my son wasn't exactly planned. me and my boyfriend knew it would happen because we weren't using protection.. i knew right when i went to eat food that i really didn't want lol i just had a feeling being of a stupid craving :P i went on boxing day to a medi clinic right after my 16th birthday and sure enough i was pregnant. my bestfriend knew, then i told my boyfriend. then my brothers women, and my brothers. and they helped me tell my parents which was on new years. my pregnancy was good, i was huge lol. and the labour was pretty bad.. i was 10 days over due when they finally decided to induce me, i got the inserting thing first.. after a couple hours it got me to five cm. then i got my epidural. then it wasn't progressing, my son wasnt even all the way down yet, so they gave me the other method of inducing, which i thought worked because we did a trial push and boom, 45 minutes later he was born. 9 pounds 7 ounces.

Well, it wasnt planned at all.I conceived on pills actually.We got married on the 9th of feb and I conceived on the 14th of feb.Yes my 1 1//2 months old daughter is a valentine baby (sign of true love?) But actually got to know on the 11th of march.But I had already started showing signs of pregnancy -aversion to milk,increased hunger,tiredness and a slight weight gain and ofcourse the missed periods....but my husband who is a doc knew that I was pregnant even before we went to the gynae.It indeed was a surprise for both of us but a pleasant one at that :)

With me it was actually my now fiance and my mother who kept insisting I was pregnant. I at first really thought they were crazy and then I ended up being a week and a half late for my period. So we took a test. My mom was not home when I took it because even though she suspected I was I was affraid to tell her. So, I took the test and literally two seconds later was calling my boyfriend in because I had a plus sign. We cried, then laughed, then cried some more. My son was TOTALLY UNplanned. However, I wouldn't change a thing. [:

i had originally planned my baby but then gave up when it didnt work for a year. i found out i was pregnant after i had got into a fight and wasnt able to sleep with out a heating pad and was using the bathroom lyk every 20 minutes. i went to my doctor to ask him about a kidney infection and he said it was negative so he check for pregnancy n came back to my room and didnt say anything just sat the paper with a plus sign circled in front of me. then when he finally said something my reaction was "huh!?!?!?" n i asked him to make a copy of it to give to my mom. i still have the paper.

well, i didnt even know i was pregnant. My boyfriend told me i was having symptoms of being pregnant and i said its because my period is about to start and i laughed. I said i am not pregnant because im too young (me being oblivious lol). Well i got 3 home tests from a friend because i just had to be certain. All the tests came out positive and i was like oh!, wellll? and i told my boyfriend. He was getting all excited and i said dont get too excited because home tests can come out wrong. (yeah 3 in a row lol). So i told my friend who gave me the home tests and she took me to planned parenthood and she paid for my test and i got the results back. It said i was 5 weeks pregnant and due Oct 3. So here i am excited as i ever could be and living with my boyfriend. It wasnt a planned pregnancy but i dont regret a thing ! =D

When I found out I was pregnant, I was 1 day away from being 5 weeks. I had a really strong feeling that I was pregnant, I took my first test when I was only 3 && a half weeks, it didn't show up at first, so I thought that maybe I was just getting a lil fatter, ahaha. but then when I missed my period the whole month almost, I figured I def was pregnant && took another one. I was in the bathroom at my sisters [that I live with] && I read the test I was so excited, but yet I was nervous. I said out loud "Oh my god, oh my god." My sis busted in the bathroom && says "NO FUCKIN WAY! SHUT THE FUCK UP!!" Not exactly the first reaction you'd expect, but my family is far from the norm. I was unable to tell the father until the next day, I was pretty upset about that, but its alright. I am now 10 weeks 1 day, I have my first ultrasound on July 9th, hopefully I get to find out what I'm having. Hoping for a BOY!!!

Well my boyfriend and I used the "pull out" method for awhile and it worked every time so I never thought to take a pregnancy test. During the time of my period I noticed it was lighter than usual, and it only lasted for 2 1/2 days. I thought it was weird so I decided to look it up online. It said that it might be Implantation Bleeding. Well, there had been a few "in the moment" kind of ordeals so I decided to take a pregnancy test. It came up negative at first, although I thought maybe I could see a faint line. I told my boyfriend and I put the test back in its box and put it up on the shelf. Well, my boyfriend called one of his friends, who has a kid, and somehow they got on the subject of my iffy test. After he got off the phone he came into the room and told me that that exact thing had happened to his buddy's wife. As I was telling "no chace it only has one line on there", I opened up the box and looked at the test. It had one whole line and the other one had apparently shown up more than before. I cried and that's when I knew I was pregnant.

It obviously was a good idea to keep the test and look at it a second time. It just took a little longer to show up is all.

I was at a friends house and had already told my boyfriend that i thought i was pregnant but he wouldn't believe me even though i had started gaining weight (which was easy to tell cause i was so small). We went to the store and picked up a test and it was positive! I was only 19 and he was 22 but we did want a baby. I had lost a baby about a year before from having an ovarian cyst rupture and I never even new i was pregnant until after this all happened. We are still together and my boy just turned 2! They are so worth it. He makes my life worth living.

I kinda had a suspicion I was pregnant when all I wanted to drink was cappacino which I would drink EVERYDAY and get McDonalds fries. I talked to my boyfriend at the time and told him what was going on and we went for a walk, and I told him I wanted to name the baby Miley if it was a girl. Few days later we told his dad I might be, and he hoped we wernt because at the time I had JUST turned 18 and he was 17. That night we went to the store and bought a pregnancy test and I got so sick on the car ride home we had to pull over 3 times. I was hyperventalating while I was taking the test because his brother and nephews and sisters were downstairs watching tv and he was standing outside the door listening to me getting sick first of all. Well, that test came out negative. About a week later I was with some friends and they told me to take another test, I did with all of them there, and that one was negative too. By then I was 5 weeks pregnant. Week later one of my best friends told me I was just stressing and had nothing to worry about. Well I told her I thought I was but I didnt know for sure. Next day I went to the health department and the test FINALLY came up positive but it was VERY faint. They had estimated that I got pregnant on my birthday. Me and my bf got engaged but broke up 4 times while I was pregnant due to cheating and in the end I got back with him EVERYTIME. 3 days before Miley was born on Friday, I was convinced my waters broke because I couldnt control it and when I went to go get checked out they said I was just peeing all over myself. I went into full blown labor at about 1am on Sunday and Andrew knew it because at church I was grasping the bench so hard and I wouldnt go to communion. We went to his house after church for the blessing of his family's new house. I layed down on the couch and put his hand in a death grip and he knew i was in labor but coudnt do anything until my contractions were regular. I went home around midnight and made dinner for my dad since he got off work at 130am. Around 230 I get a phone call saying my dads tires were slashed so I called my mom at work and she had to go get him and drop him off. When he got home about 3 I couldnt walk but still made him dinner. At 8 in the morning when my mom got home I was gripping the couch so hard my hands were starting to bleed from the death grips. Went to the hospital and when they went to break my waters they said it had been estimated my water broke 3 days prior so it was damn lucky my daughter survived without any fluids! Got to the hospital at 845am and had my daughter at 531 pm April 7 2008. 8 lbs 6.9oz and 18 inches. After almost 41 hours of labor I pushed for LESS than 5 minutes and she was here. Me and her dad are NOT together anymore...Thank the lord!! Im sorry this was so long, it was how it happened. :)

My boyfriend and I at the time who is now my hubby didnt plan and was very shocked and scared and happy all at once. We first told his parents because we were living with them and there were extatic too have there first grandchild come into the world.

I didnt realise I was pregnant until i got really bad stomach pains. My dad ended up taking me to the hospital where I found out I was about 10 weeks pregnant.
Being 15 at the time my baby was definately not planned, but I love him more than anything. I named him Kadin Leonard and hes now 3 :)
Apart from my dad, my babys father was the first one to find out...I didnt start showing till about 6-7 months so was able to keep it a secret from my eldest sister till then! lol.
I had to have a c-section because of a breech baby and placenta previa :)

Well I found out I was pregnant 4 months into the pregnancy. I know that's really bad but I've always had irregular periods, and I didn't really have any other side effects. When I realised how long it had been since my period, a friend suggested buying a pregnancy test. So I did, and it was positive. I broke down crying and told my best friends at the time - who ended up to not believe me and hurl abuse at me for 'lying'. I soon proved them wrong, aha. After them I told my mother. I didn't tell the father until I was 6 months along because of the distance between us. We were kinda having a long distance relationship. We broke up shortly after, but it was nothing to do with the pregnancy.

With this one I just had a feeling. Like I didn't have side effects or anything. I just kinda knew. I'm not sure how, but I did. And I have a feeling that I know the night this one was concieved. Because I remember having a weird feeling and just beaming ear from ear. I know the sperm don't meet the egg straight away, but I don't know.. I think I just knew instantly. I'm still with the dad, and I was pretty happy finding out this time. We were planning on having a baby like in a few months time, it just happened early. Haa. He was the first one I told, then his family was, then my mum, then the rest of my family.

My story is probably the most different any one will hear.
Well I first found out I was pregnant back in the january of 08... a couple weeks later I ended up miscarrying. Quite traumatic for me. but after that I never recieved my period. Me just being me kept thinking I got it and forgot to mark it. Once April started rolling round I noticed that I was indeed late and I had to use to "suck-it-in" tech to button my pants. So I went to the doc to find out what was going on an Bam im pregnant. 15 1/2 weeks to be precise. I thought I was crazy cause I just lost a baby not to long before. I wanted to know how that could be possible and they told me that the only thing that could of happened was that I was suppose to have twins. My daughters father was with me at the time (and the 1st person I told) and he was completely dumfounded. it was crazy. This was completely unexpected but we love our daughter all the same. Can't seem to picture two of my little one running around

my boyfriend and i had tried to have a baby for about a month. i was taking pregnancy tests every time i had to pee, (it's actually pretty funny too, because the day before we found out that we were pregnant, we went to planned parenthood and the doctor told us we weren't!) i got so sick my first 4 months. i lost 20 lbs in 2 weeks. but around 5 months, i got better. my boyfriend was actually in the bathroom with me when we found out and we started jumping up and down and crying.

I found out when I went to the doctor's because I passed out in the shower. I was 21 when I had my son. First, I wrote passing out due to the shower being to steamy, and then i almost passed out again later that week after taking a hot bath.I never had any other symptoms making me think I was pregnant like sickness or sore chest. So I went to the doctors office on my college campus and found out that way. I first told my boyfriend and then our families. It was hard because my family was not initially supportive and had differing views about what I should do. In the end, I married my boyfriend (which we had already talked about doing before getting pregnant) and we are happy as can be with our 11 month old boy. Life has a funny way of working out despite difficult circumstances.

I had an sign i was pregnant after eating a spicy chicken fillet. i had the most terrible heartburn for over an hour and when i went up to bed i threw up. But it didnt quite click. Then my period was about a week late which was extremely unusual as im usualli only a day out if at all. After I told my boyfriend we decided we should do a pregnancy test and it came out positive. I cried & he was silent, both out of shock. We hadn't been together long at all and so it was a big shock. Ive always liked eggs and the next day when my boyfriend ask me to fry one for him it made me retch, and made my mum ask me if i was pregnant. She made me tell my dad as she knew he'd be happy but i told her to tell everyone else as i couldnt quite get my head around it. After a few days we started getting used to the idea and are now a happy family :) xxx

I was going throught a really rough time with my boyfriend at the time. I found out that he was cheating on me so we broke up. 2 weeks later I had my 2 bestfriends stay the weekend at my house when my mom was out of town for her birthday. We had our whole weekend planned out, we was going to go to the club, drink and just have fun! I had noticed that my period was a 2 weeks late but i never took a test beause i thought it was just late because i use to be on birth control. The nite I was goin to go to the club my bestfriend told me to take a test. I took it and seen that + sign and start crying. That nite my then ex boyfriend came over and was talking abiut the whole cheating thing with me, we ended up back together and then i told him i was pregnant.

i was only a week late when i found out, i was going to get a pregnancy test because the nurse told me to come back for a preg test in three weeks time after i had the morning after pill, i didnt expect to be pregnant, cause id been late plenty of times before, but i took the morning after pill about 3-4 days after sex. i didnt think i would be pregnant cause id had unprotected sex so many times before, stupid, i know. but anyways the nurse told me the test was positive and i immediatly started laughing. the first person i told was my bf, i was scared cause id only been with him for a month, but he stood by me, and now we have a beautiful boy named brandon thomas monk who just turned 2. i was 18 when i fell pregnant, 19 when i gave birth and now im 21. i love my little boy so much he is everything to me, but i would loooooooove a little girl

Well I was 16 when I found out I was pregnant, but how I found out was my mom and I usually had our time of the month at the same time. I didn't think anything of it because I would go months without a period and sometimes I'd go months with a period. Well I was sleepy and moody and my mother looked at me and says " you know you're pregnant right? " I disagreed with her naturally, then she brought out the pack of unopened pads and said this is how I know you are. So she took me to the Sexual Health Clinic to take the pregnancy test and sure enough I was 4 weeks pregnant. 14 years later and I have the most beautiful son. I may have lost my teenage years but I was into the wrong crowd and am thankful cause I would be nothing living on welfare etc. etc. I'm thankful for having him at such a young age.

Paulie & I had been on & off again for a while. at the time we had been broken up and he had actually been talking to his daughter's mom again. a week before my 18th birthday i just really started missing him more than ever (love of my life) and started txting him to work through our issues. he agreed to come hang out with me the day after my birthday and i was so excited! apparently he was too so i went and picked him on my birthday instead after he got off work. we went back to my place and conceived our son ON MY 18th BIRTHDAY! he still jokes to this day that he is my bday present :) PJ wasn't exactly planned for the time we conceived him. i had been pregnant before with twins and we lost both of them shortly after thanksgiving. we had tried again but i was just going through so much grief i pushed him away, which is why we were split up. i had already enlisted into the Army, and was waiting to leave on May 11th. with us getting back together i was scared to leave so soon since there was still so much to work through. i asked my recruiter for an extension which i was granted. i moved in with Paulie on May 1st. after about a week i just started feeling like crap. during this time paulie promised me he wasn't going anywhere and told me i was ok to ship out on the 11th. i packed my bag 3 days before so i could spend the rest of my time with him. the night before i was supposed to leave i was so miserable i almost had a friend take me to the ER since paul had been called into work. i had the WORST migrane, cramps, nausea, fatigue, diziness.... just all around miserable! i don't know why, but i decided not to go tot he ER and txted paul asking him to bring me home a test from his work. lol of course he forgot and had to walk all the way to food lion in the pouring rain to buy me one since i had the car and was too miserable to drive and get him. he came home and i just couldn't pee! i drank ALOT of gatorade and just couldn't go. he went to get in the shower & then i had to pee (figures lol) i ran in the bathroom *without the test* and he yelled @ me. i had to run back in the room and look for the damn box which had fallen off the bed and was under it. i ran back in the bathroom, damn near peed myself while opening the box and made it just in time to pee on the damn thing! before i even finished soaking the tip, the vertical line showed up. (it was one of the - or + tests) the horizontal line was really faint but i knew it was positive!!! i walked over to the shower door knocked on it & he poked his head out lol i hit him upside the head and said "look wtf you did!" and he just laughed and said "ily baby, happy belated birthday" with the cutest smile on his face. our little boy is now 5 & a 1/2 months old & he is our pride and joy. i turned 19 this past april, and married my son's father on May 1st.

I found out I was pregnant January 17th, 2004. I had just turned 18yrs old and was scared to death! Our pregnancy was not planned at all! I was also using Ortho Tri-cyclen but didn't think about using any other kind of back up when I got sick and went on amoxcillian. I had a feeling that i was pregnant about 2wks before I took the test and finally got the courage to take the test. Of course it was postive before I could even put the cap back on. I was at my boyfriend's house (now my husband). He was the first to tell. Next was my Mom. It was so hard to tell her because she was also a teen mom and I knew she would be so dissapointed. I showed her the pregnancy stick. That's how I told her. My husband's parents where estactic to be getting a grandchild. Which kind of irked me because I was so young and I felt that they were being selfish. Looking back, I'm kind of glad that they were happy and supportive of having a grandchild. I graduated at 24wks pregnant on May 28th, 2004; married my husband June 19th 2004 and gave birth to my first son, Kaleb Matthew Smith on Labor Day September 6th, 2004. I concieved our second son in July/Aug 2005 and gave birth to him on Easter sunday April 16th, 2006. We knew what we were doing when we weren't using any kind of protection. We just gave birth to our 3rd baby, a girl on Sept 23rd, 2009. And we are about to celebrate our 6th anniversary in less then 2wks! I have been with my husband since I was 16!

Our daughter was planned. Back in march 08 we had a miscarriage, in may 08 we had concieved again. We waited until I was 14 weeks before telling anyone. I was 17 my partner 19. His parents knew we were trying and figured when it happened that we would let them know, they had no idea that we had waited so long lol. After that we waited until I was 18 weeks to spread the news, even our house mate at the time had no idea! We had been so worried that something would go wrong that we didn't feel at ease until we saw our 19 week ultrasound. It was the most exciting time for us.

On Australia day 09 (26th Jan) our Little princess, Hailey Jean Teresa Star was born. Princess Hailey is now 16 months old, we plan on trying for another in the near future :-)

We had been trying for a few months and on the day my period was due it was routine to do a pregnancy test. it was 5am in the morning and I did one and it said i was pregnant! I ran screaming down the hallway in my bedroom where my husband was asleep and he thought there was something wrong but then got really happy when he realised why I was screaming! Lol

when i found out i was pregnant, i had a strange feeling in my gut that something was amiss. i hadn't started my menstrual cycle yet and something just felt off. so i took a home pregnancy test and it was positive. i was shocked but to be honest i kind of suspected that i was for weeks. i almost want to say i knew the moment i happened. i woke up in the middle of the night with a strange felling that carried on for weeks. so i guess i subconsciously knew but i wasn't sure how to proceed because the pregnancy wasn't planned. but just to be certain i went out and bought about half a dozen or more home pregnancy tests and they all came up positive. so my boyfriend and i went to the local health department for one final test and it of course was positive. my boyfriend was the first person i told and he was as shocked as i was. but as we got used to the idea of a baby we have become excited and cant wait to see our little baby boy. i am due in about a month and i just hope my little boy is as big of a surprise as when i first conceived!!!

I thought I had a tummy bug because my housemate at the time worked at a childcare and had recently had some vomiting it lasted over two weeks and she convinced me to go to the doctor he did a urine pregnancy test and it was positive. I was shocked because it wasn't a planned baby at all I told my housemate first cos she was in the waiting room. I wouldn't change having my son!

I was 17 when I found out that I was pregnant with my boyfriend. We were in a massive fight and well I had been sick for the previous 3 months, but because I was on the pill I thought that there was no way that I could be pregnant. And I couldn't have been more wrong lol. But anyway, we decided to stay together and we still are now. Ohhh but the parent's didn't take it well at all. My mother still isn't 100% with it. My Dad was in an accident when my daughter was 3 months so he can't remember being mad at me. And bf's mom cried, and asked him if he was sure if it was his!!! Well that still makes me feel awkward when I am around her. But well I wouldn't change anything. I love my daughter and I am still with my bf. Yay.

I was in SD (i live in MN) on vacation and was expecting my period that week so i had packed plenty of stuff. when i never got it i started to wonder but brushed it off since ive had false alarms before. when i was about 5 days late my friend convinced me to take a preggo test n it came up positive. i text the father n told him i wanted to get together when i got back in town. he was very shocked when i told him. the weird part is i knew wen i had conceived her cause it was the day after his birthday n i told him happy late birthday meaning just that n he quickly replied "dont say that!" jokingly.

my labor was pretty good tho. i had started feeling crampy while getting ready to go to a halloween birthday party for my friends daughter, which was also my due date too, when my water broke at 12:42 pm. my boyfriend had just gotten in the shower wen i told him n he jumped out n we got ready to go to the hospital. at first things were going good but then her heart rate started dropping so they gave me oxygen.i was having back labor on top of everything too. i was given n epidural n wen her heart rate still wasnt going back up i had to start pushing, but of course she got stuck and was laying on her umbilical cord, so they finally had to do an emergency c-section. at first she wasnt breathing but within minutes she was and never had to b in the nicu. later i found out my placenta had started to tear too which also contributed to her heart rate dropping. she was born at 7:58 pm. she wasnt planned but is definitely a blessing :)
