Probably, but it's a not a bad thing.

My child was an accident.

Well, I haven't thought of it, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.
^And I would think that it is actually a bad thing, I mean, planning is needed, doesn't it?

Yes, most babies are accidents.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/16/04 - 6:23:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think there is a big difference between an accident and a surprise. I suspect most pregnancies in America are planned, but that most Third World pregnancies are not planned- not that they were trying to avoid pregnancy and couldn't, but that they were just rolling with the punches, so to speak.

spiritofmist, I could see how an accident, if that's what ang2pang really meant, would initially be a bad thing, but there are plenty of great parents out there whose kids weren't planned, so while it may be initially bad, it's pretty easy to overcome that bad and create something good instead.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were. I was planned though. And by looking at the region results of this question http://www.youthink.com/?jump_to=367450 , most of the Americans on this site were planned babies.

Husband and I planned on having two, but not 16 months apart, so the second one was more of an early astonishment (he's my "sponge baby" - FYI, their effectiveness is next to 0%), than an accident.

That's exactly what I meant, Uncle. Obviously having a child takes planning. But when I wasn't planning on getting pregnant, and when I found out I was suprised. Therefore, it being an accident. But I've dealt with it and planned for what's next.

No, I think alot are planned and alot were probably either way you know? That the parents weren't really trying TO but also were not really trying to prevent it. I was planned, makes me feel so special :)

I think a great deal of them are.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 12/28/04 - 5:03:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I was a mistake and I'm glad my mom decided have me.

I was always told I was an accident...and a failed morning after too.

Children in the backseat cause accidents.
Accidents in the backseat cause children!
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/27/05 - 4:23:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say happy accidents.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/27/05 - 4:54:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
yuh but probably good accidents to many people
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 2/20/05 - 2:26:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
Over the past 25 years? Yes.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/14/05 - 6:43:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
This question is an accident!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/14/05 - 6:45:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
They're not accidents to the parents that spend 5-10 years trying to have a baby.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/15/05 - 3:32:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
There are no such things as accidents.

Ugh.. You can't say 'there are no such things as accidents.' Where is your proof? Everything doesn't happen for a reason.. Why do people get AIDS and die? As for the question 'Do you think the majority of children in the world were accidents?" Well, I don't think people are 'accidents.'

If I plant a corn seed in the ground and water it, and a Corn stock comes up, is that an accident? Nope.
Life is about Seedtime/Harvest time. We reap what we sow. I don't think kids are accidents, put if two people don't want to have a child yet, they shouldn't be planting anything
