So I am curious...

How did you all tell DH that you were pregnant? I have not "officially" told mine yet and would love some ideas

I didn't have to - he was right there with me reading the test! I kinda wish I could've surprised him, but I'm not very creative, so it's all for the best!

YouTube actually has a lot of videos of women breaking the news to their DHs - check it out!

Good luck and congratulations - welcome to the board!

He was asleep on the couch and I took a digi so his non trained eye wouldn't say there is no line. I woke him up with the words Pregnant in his face. He said it was like an old cartoon where it goes all red and the words BAM or POW are on the screen. Hahaha. It was cute.

DH was joking around and said "I'll knock you up" and I said "You already did that!"

I took a pic of the test, and sent it to him in a text message and said guess what?

Last pregnancy, I bought dh a bib that said daddy. I also bought a card that said who will the baby look like? On the inside it said, " someone loved." I also put the digi in the bag too.

This pregnancy I decided not to buy anything because of the reminder. My last pg ended in a m/c so I didn't want to buy something and have to look at it all the time.

I just sent him a text of the picture.


**If you have a pet, you could dress your pet in a shirt that says daddy on it or something like that. Or if you have a child already you could have them put on a shirt saying that they are going to be a big brother/sister.

We have a 15 month daughter, and I got up early to POAS, then shortly after she woke up, so I capped the test and handed it to her and we went and woke Daddy. I said, "Good morning Daddy, we have something for you." and she handed him the test that said "Pregnant". He had the biggest grin!

Oh no! I am sorry to hear this. Do you think you will be able to work it out? Is he your son's father also? How are you doing with this?

Well I told him twice...

The first time I POAS with him there. The line came up soooo faint and he said the line didn't look real. I don't know what a fake line looks like so I started screaming at him(not in a mean way)..."NO, IT'S THERE I SEE IT! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?" and he was completely in disbelief.

So the next day I took a FRER and put it on top of a gift bag I left in the bathroom. When he finally woke up (the only day of the year he slept in, uhhh) he found the gift and came down stairs with a smile. I think he believed then. BTW, this was my original plan, but I was too impatient to wait for him to leave to POAS the first morning.

Well as i said when I first joined all my plans were shot straight to h*** when I POAS in the Walmart bathroom. LOL

My friend was with me at Walmart so she knew first then I told my sister (BeckyOberry) and I was gonna think of some great way to tell him but I walked in the front door and he was standing there and I said LOOK!!!

He was half asleep from a nap and he said thats good ,I'm gonna go lay down upstairs ,tell me again when I get up lol


I was disappointed but he doesn't really get excited about stuff till its happening . So when he comes home and can tell I'm pregnant or feels the baby move he is reserved .

Wish I had thought of a better way lol

Well DH and I had been up playing Mario Kart that Saturday night and it hit me I had a FRER from my pg with K. Yes it was almost 5 years old and expired. We decided I'd take it first thing in the am. I was certain it was going to be BFN, since DH was terribly sick during what I thought was my O and out of town constantly too. Took it first thing and it was a faint line but def readable. He got all huffy and said I don't believe your expired test, we need to go now and get a 'good' one. So off I went and got home with another FRER, went potty, waited the three minutes and I came back out with a BFP and he was just sitting waiting. I said it's BFP and we hugged for awhile, K came up and joined and it was a group hug Of course she had no idea why we were hugging

No DS has a different father. His father isn't in the picture by his own choice. So, I have kinda chalked it up to well, if I can support one, then I can do two. That's all I can do. I'm not going to cry over it and stress myself out more, ya know? It sucks though because we were actually TTC.

I had grand ideas of creatively telling my husband in a way that would give us a cute story to recall for years... but, instead, I just started screaming for him from downstairs to come see if he saw the same line I was seeing. I guess after so many BFNs were I was straining to see a line that never existed, I didn't trust myself to clearly recognize a real line.

I had all of these plans about how I would put a hamburger bun in the oven and stick a little peice of paper into it with a toothpick with our due date on it and wait for him to find it but instead I just was too excited so I cam out of the bathrrom and said "Congrats, daddy of 2!" and handed him the test.

I wanted to think of a somewhat cute way to tell him and one night we went out to walk our dog and on the walk I was still thinking of ways to do it when I somehow just blurted out "so, I'm pregnant."

I got up that morning, tested, went into the bedroom, where he was sleeping, laid down next to him (which startled him awake a little bit) and said "Good morning Daddy." Then he smiled, put his arm around me and gave me a kiss and we just cuddled like that for a bit.
