Just wondering if anyone else's pregnancy was a surprise?
My hubby and I found out the day before he was due to get a vasectomy that I was expecting this baby so it came as a big shock as we both had decided and settled that our family was complete with our 2 kids.

Lola was a huge shock! Love her pieces and wouldnt have life any other way now but blimey it took so long to believe it!!
Im curently convincing dp to cancel his vasectomy as when he booked it we both felt it was right due to a really difficult baby but now shes a happy crazy 7mnth old i dont feel ready to say no more, im only 20!! i think im getting there

My youngest daughter and this pregnancy were both surprises, we had planned on having more children but not quite so close together. My eldest was only 7mths when I found out I was expecting and will have a 2 yr gap between youngest children but with my eldest only just 3 its going to be hard work!
My husband is convinced its all down to his "super sperm"!

My sisters two were both surprises, Jack is 11 now and she also has a 7 month old - rather a large gap!
Harry wasnt a surprise we waited a long time for him.
I dont know how I would cope if I had got pregnant again straight away, its such hard work (although the best job EVER!) I am not sure I could have coped with dealing with a baby/toddler and being pregnant/having a new born - how do you do it?

It all becomes "normal" very quickly.That's your life,that's your daily routine.You just do it,and you don't enjoy it any less cos it's hard work.
TBH if I wasn't busy with lots of littlies I'd be a bit lost.I've had a toddler and a baby for nearly nine years now.I think I cope reasonably well.
Jury's out on whether I'm still sane or not.

Oh yes it is very hard when they are poorly so if you have more than one and they are poorly together must be very difficult, I just feel very tired and my body aches most of the time with one dont know how i would find the energy for two, but my one is now 21 months so not so bad if there was any surprises now I suppose.
Also some days they have moany days I suppose like us we sometimes feel fed up and if you have more than one of them moaning on - i would want to hit my head up against the wall. Hats off to you....

But there's the nice bits,just little things.My eldest two who although close when tiny Harry had no time for Bridie for a long while.Now though they spend a lot of time together.Just this morning I was eavesdropping their conversation planning what they were both doing together.Then later Matilda and Arwen were just pottering about together,standing at the back door calling to Matilda's teddies drying on the airer in the garden cos I washed them.Those moments just show you the small age gaps can work,when you see their relationships with each other.
Not so good when they gang up together and steal/decorate the kitchen with rice crispies while I'm feeding Merlin.3 times today because Matilda broke the kitchen gate and we were experimenting to see if we need to replace it.Gate gets fixed/something goes on their tomorrow.The Dyson's eaten more cereal than the kids the last couple of days.
