Sorry, I’m not buying it. This has been quite a pet peeve of mine for awhile now. I’ll hear a woman say she got pregnant “on accident” or “surprisingly” but in my book, if you’re not on birth control, what’s the surprise?
Some people say “we’re not trying but we’re just not using birth control and we’ll see what happens.” Well sooner or later you’ll probably be seeing some growth in your belly cause eventually it’ll happen.
I understand “Leaving things up to the Lord,” I’m all for that, but we have choices too ya know. I mean, you can leave it up to Him by NOT using birth control while I can leave it up to Him USING it.
Some people do get pregnant on birth control. I almost think it would be easier that way… For me at least. It would be easier for me to believe “it was meant to be” if it happened while I was doing everything in my power for it NOT to happen. Wouldn’t that be more of a miracle?
Most likely it’ll happen while you’re not using precautions but if it’s what God wants it’ll happen regardless right?
I’d prefer people to say “It wasn’t exactly planned but we knew it was a possibility” than “What the eff? I wasn’t using birth control but shoot, we only did it once! What a surprise!” That’s a chance you’re taking people!
Now if you’re on the pill, only did it once and you STILL got knocked up… My hat is off to ya, you are one fertile woman, and if I were in your shoes I’d be freaking out, but excited because divine intervention has got to be a part of that scenario.
PS: This is definitely directed towards women who convince easily and naturally… Or who don’t know how easily they conceive “forget” to use birth control and get knocked up in a month or two. Not those who try for a long time, kick birth control to the curb, and get a pleasant surprise later on as yall did 🙂
