Well, it sounds as though you are going through with the pregnancy and are going to keep your child so while not planned, you've made decisions that lead me to believe you are accepting of another child. So, just BE happy and realize that you are so fortunate to be bringing another beautiful life into the world. Happiness is a choice, in my opinion so choose it:)

Even though you may not wanted anymore God wanted you to have this child. Pray and embrace with love! I wish you nothing but the very best!

louise - having your tubes tied is only 99.5% effective (about the same as taking the pill)...tubes can reattatch themselves naturally if cut and if clips were used they can come loose during healing/over time and allow for pregnancy to occur. i've heard of a few people having to have their tubes re-tied after 5 years because they began to reattatch themselves....
lakisha, have you and your partner thought about going to speak to a therapist to help you get your head around the situation and come to terms with it? maybe going and getting to express your fears/concerns to a third uninvolved party could help you come to terms and be happy. i'm a little concerned that this feeling of unhappiness you have towards the pregnancy may continue onto the child once he/she is born and have a negative affect on the bond you develop with the baby. good luck and i hope all turns out well for you and your family

I am a bit baffled on how you got your tubes tied and now you are pregnant! I can see a law suit here. I think you are going to need a lot of help to get your head around this one. I hope your husband is being supportive. Just remember that this baby never asked to be born so love him/her and count them as a little miracle.

There must be a reason you are being sent another child. I believe when things are meant to be, they are meant to be.
