Shock. :shock: (a happy shock though.)

I was at work sitting on the toilet, mouth open, and hand covering mouth. I stared at the test for about 5 minutes. Clocked out, drove home, and walked in the door and yelled "We need to talk". He thought I was leaving him, lol.
I was on Birth Control, had been for 4 years, but we had talked about stopping it to have a baby. We hadn't made the final decision yet. I was prescribed anti-biotics for an abscess tooth.
We decided that we would try for those two weeks I was on the medicine and if it happened it was meant to be. And well, it was meant to be. :D

DS1 I cried because I thought my parents were going to kill me. I was only 16. My mom wasn't *that* mad but my dad was livid. Didn't talk to me until the day I found out it was a boy.

DS2 I was happy. I was older, busting my hump taking care of DS1 but knew I would make it. My bf at the time was a great dad already so I thought adding another baby to our family wouldn't be so difficult. (We broke up before DS2 was even born and DH raised both of them)

DS3 I cried because I was so happy and in shock. I found out in August of 2010 and DH had just come home from Iraq in February and we had been trying since he got home. We were thrilled.

DD (current pregnancy) I was like "no, no, no, no!" DH didn't want anymore kids and I was on the fence. Then we went to out U/S and they said "IT'S A GIRL!!" And I looked over at DH and he was crying like a baby. It hasn't stopped talking about having a daughter. Our family is complete!

I took the first test and it was a faint positive and I was like "Oh shit. No. No no no." Then SO gave me the money for a digital because he didn't think the first was positive. Took it in a Walmart bathroom and it came up PREGNANT and I started laughing. Nervous reaction. We were not happy at all.

With my first- considering our situation, broke up two months before but was still living together and f**king... I finally moved out, 3 wks later- I was 5 days late- tool a test and boom! Positive. I took a pic and sent it to my cousin.... In shock, pretty sure I cried, was scared too. She said come over, so I got another test and went to her house... Took another one, positive again. I was so afraid. Called planned parenthood, made an appointment for the next day- told my 3 best friends (2 already had kids) after planned parenthood- went to welfare for insurance- set up a doc appointment, finally about 3 days later I told my SO and my mom. Mom was happy, but hesitant.... And SO was upset, mad, just had an Awful reaction :( the whole pregnancy was terrible for him. He asked me to get an abortion about every other month until I was about 35wks along.... Ugh

Second was planned- sort of. Well we talked about it and I said we'll, ill stop my birth control then well TRY in a few months... 5 wks later I had a positive test. I was excited but kinda nervous too, SO had a better reaction just surprised it happened so fast!

Third- we were both happy... It was completely planned (ended in M/C)

With DD1 I was soooo scared. I didn't know what to do really. I was barely 18, pregnant with a 25 year old's baby I met working at McD's, and we were both unemployed. I was a "druggie" so one of the first things was "well, the fun's over".

With DS, it was more of excitement, DH wanted to have a baby(his first, my second) and was happy. I was more like "Oh, wow, crap" Because I was 19 and already preggo with my 2nd. Felt kind of like a loser.

With DD2, I was surprised. Not too happy nor sad. I just thanked God for a new little blessing.

With my first it was holy shit no. We had just filed for bankruptcy, living rent free with a friend because SO was a first year apprentice and I had just started a new job AND just been released after one of my many breakdowns into community mental health. Thankfully (as horrid as it sounds) we lost that one at 12 weeks.

With DS it was excitement because things were stable, we had both been in our jobs for 3 years, SO was nearly finished his apprenticeship, and we were living in our own house.

With this one it was excitement at first, but no I'm worried because we partially own this house with my parents but it looks like they're going to have to sell it to move into a retirement village at the end of the year. So now we're a bit concerned about what we'll do.

For my DD, it was absolute joy and excitement because DH and I had been TTC for almost 5 years at that point. When she was 18 months old, we decided to try again and one month later, BFP!!! I was in pure shock, and took like 10 tests just to make sure I wasn't crazy!
