Saturday Centus: Suprise I'm Pregnant

"You can't get pregnant on the pill. You must have done something wrong." I remember saying these words to my coworker in 2008. A few months later, I would be eating those same words.

It was March 2009. I had been feeling queasy lately and was constantly tired. I had missed my period and wondered could I be pregnant? Nah. I'm on the pill. Then I remembered my coworker and the conversation we had. There is an very small percentage of that happening. I went and got one of those home pregnancy test. I showed the test to my husband. "Suprise! I'm pregnant".

Hmmm! A clever musical tat you have there. My DIL got a tat of two geckos chasing each other around her navel when she was in college. When she was pregnant with twins, those geckos turned into dinosaurs!!

Did you miss a pill? I sure hope so. Otherwise, that "safety" rating on bc pills is not what it's cracked up to be!

Sue I did not miss any pills I was very diligent about taking them everyday at the same time. Judie The tat is Calvin and Hobbes dancing. It is one of my favorites. I didn't want my belly piercing to close so that is why there is a huge piercing through my belly :-)

Nothing is 100% guaranteed except how much happiness little surprises can bring! Would love to have seen a picture of your husband's face when you told him. :)

This kind of thing is always a shock. There's a miniscule chance of it and so it has to happen to someone, but of course we never expect it to happen to us. That's human nature. It's bad luck in a way, but very good luck too, and it seems to have worked out very well!

Nonna Beach said...

Sweet story !
Glad everything worked out for you. I wouldn't have taken that news well at all. I love that you admitted you chiding your coworker about getting PG on the pill and then you did too. Wonder what the percentages of that happening are ?

Wow! Didn't know that could happen either!

Thanks for visiting my Sunset with Palm Tree. With all of the rain we're having now, I wish I was under that palm tree with the sunset, too!

upinthecosmos said...

Well either it was Karma or you were just meant to have a baby at that time. Either way I'm sure it all turned out beautifully:-)

Modern medicine-can't live with or without it. I can only imagine your shock, not to mention your husband's. Well written. laurie

When looking at the idea of contraception, it's true nothing apart from abstinence seems to prevent pregnancy 100% of the time. Such is life. :)
I enjoyed reading your story. It holds the truth for a number of people.
I liked the comment, "An "uh-oh" blessing!"

Anna said...

Wonderful story!
It was just meant to be!

Thanks for visiting my post. I wrote a 'Part Two'. Take a look if you have the time:

Anna's SC wk 69 'Surprise, I'm pregnant - Part One'
Anna's SC wk 69 'Surprise, I'm pregnant - Part Two'

Best wishes,
Anna

I'm glad you had that surprise in your life! It's keeping you from being bored - ha!

Thanks for linking.

I, too, can testify that the pill doesn't always work! With this photo, no wonder you won a prize and the words on the mosaic are good.
Thanks for your visit. Do come again.
