Tori Spelling's Unexpected Pregnancy Serves as an Important Reminder to Moms (VIDEO)

Mom Moment 28

tori spellingCan you believe that Tori Spelling is pregnant again? Because I'm still kind of in shock. I mean, it's only been five months since she welcomed her baby girl, Hattie, and now she's already pregnant with her fourth child? If you asked most moms about "getting busy" after the arrival of a new baby, they'd probably assume you were talking about having to do multiple loads of laundry a day or some other household chore.

But Tori certainly wasn't wasting any time getting back down to business into the bedroom with Dean even though she'd just given birth! And while she may have been ready and willing to rekindle the romance with her hubby, she definitely didn't expect to get knocked up again in the process.

She was totally shocked when she went to the ER with a bad migraine, and came out with a positive pregnancy test result. Talk about an unexpected surprise!

Hospital policies required her to pee in a cup, and she even insisted that there was no way she could be pregnant again because she'd just had a baby. When the nurse came back and told her that she was indeed, expecting, she still didn't believe her -- until a blood test proved the results were true. Her head must have been absolutely spinning after hearing that news!

I think it's safe to say that a lot of women don't think that they can get pregnant right after having a baby. I actually had a friend who was breastfeeding her 2-month-old son and couldn't figure out why she was so much hungrier with him than she'd been while nursing her other kids. As it turns out, she was preggo again and was already a few weeks along. She was stunned, but thrilled, just like Tori.

Babies are such a blessing, but if you want to space them out a little bit, then it might be a good idea to get back on some form of birth control until you're truly ready to conceive. Some surprises may be a bit too much to handle when you already have a new baby in the house.

How close together have your pregnancies been? If this is your first baby, how soon do you want to have another?

I just love Tori and Dean, they're such good parents and their kids are adorable. :)


I'd be thrilled with a "surprise"- but then again, we use condoms since I'm still breastfeeding my baby girl.

How does someone with 3 kids still get pregnant "unexpectedly"?

And what person truly believes you can have sex with no protection at certain times and not get pregnant? The only thing that i could see making it a surprise is if they were avid condom users or she was on birth control. otherwise, not so much.

Congratulations to her!!!!  It can still be unexpected if you aren't 'trying' to get pregnant, even though you aren't really preventing it either.  My fourth came about just 5 months after his sister.  Totally unexpected!!  Even though we weren't preventing it.  Having little ones close together is crazy, and busy, but also absolutely fun and wonderful!!  (We now have 5, 6 years and younger)

I'm only having one, but if I was to have another I would wait at least a year if not longer. I'd want to give my body time to heal and get back into shape. I also had a rough pregnancy though, so I would be in no rush to do it again so soon. I have several friends however who popped out their first and then within 3 months were pregnant again (one is having twins and the other is already scheduled for a c-section because she had horrible preeclampsia with the last). I sometimes question why people get knocked up so soon, but to each his own...I wouldn't do it!

Micheledo, if a man is letting off inside you I hardly see how you can consider a pregnancy unexpected, unless you have some marbles missing or still dont know how babies are made.

I love these two.  I think they are a good team.

My first two are 25 months apart and my third is going to be born 4.5 years after my last.  My ob/gyn had told me once it takes a woman's body 2 years to recover after giving birth.

And you'd be surprised how completely in the dark some people are about conception, ovulation and the whole reproductive system- which is scary that they are parents!

Unexpected simply means you weren't expecting it.  If you know your body well, you obviously know that some times are better then others to get pregnant.  So even without protection, you don't always expect to get pregnant.  That doesn't mean you think it isn't possible - just that it isn't an expected outcome. 

An unexpected pregnancy doesn't mean you are clueless about your body.  I don't expect a pregnancy every single time I have sex with my husband.  I don't mind if that is what happens, but it is certainly not my expectation.  I usually have other things on my mind anyway!

The author makes it sound like it's impossible for women to want sex after just having a baby. I was counting down the days til my 6 week check up where the doctor then cleared me to have sex with my husband again. That was the longest 6 weeks of my life and once we got home and the baby took a nap I jumped him!
