So, BF went to get his daughter from his parents house today... She goes there after school. His mother said she had a dream that I was pregnant and asked him if I was. HE TOLD HER! We agreed to wait till my appointment on the 9th! He says he couldn't help it because he's so excited that he instantly started smiling when she asked. I'm feeling rather annoyed at the moment. Would you?
I'd be annoyed bc you had discussed it earlier and agree to hold off and tell her together. I'd be annoyed I didn't get to be a part of telling her. But I do understand how hard it is to control your excitement with such news. I'm sorry he spilled the beans!
At first i would probably be very annoyed too. It is so great that he is so happy about the baby and after she mentioned the dream he might have not been able to hold it in. I bet he did not intend to tell her, it probably just popped out. I would try to take his excitment as a blessing and try to let it go. I hope it all works out.
I'd probably be annoyed, but I can see how anyone could slip pretty easily in that situation too. I did it myself because a customer/friend called me out on it and I was like am I supposed to outright lie to her or just tell her - and I did like he did and just told her I'd let him know I was annoyed and disappointed and then let it go
I would be slightly annoyed but not mad. Should he have told her, No, but it is hard to lie when you are excited about something and someone is asking you about it. Don't be too hard on him, it was a slip and I'm sure he didnt do it on purpose plus his mom probably knows when he is lying anyway.
You're pregnant. You can be mad about whatever you want! LOL
At any rate, I can see why you're disappointed in him, but I can also see why he felt he couldn't help himself. His mom might have guessed anyway, most moms can read between the lines with their kids.
I can understand being upset, but I also know that if I had been in that situation, I would have had a hard time keeping a straight face. I would have totally spilled the beans. It is just so hard to keep the excitement in sometimes. Hopefully it all works out ok in the end.
Eeeeeeverything annoys me right now, and yes i would be a bit put out, but at the same time enjoy the fact that he is a VERY happy and excited daddy to be! Give him the look and then kiss him and tell him your happy he is your babys daddy!
Update* I was out feeding when he got home. He was telling me about the cheesecake he bought me as a get out of the dog house offering. I was appreciative, but he knew I was annoyed... I couldn't hide that either. After dark, we went in. I sat on the couch while he was making supper. He got to a stopping point and came to ask what was wrong (he already knew). I told him that I was sad that I didn't get to be a part of the announcement. Especially since we aren't telling my family at all. I had tears in my eyes (highly unusual). He got all teary eyed too. He really didn't intend on telling, but it still hurt.
I can understand you being upset, but I personally wouldn't hold it against him. It's awesome that he's happy and excited, and that he wants to tell people, even if you agreed. I just think it's sweet.
I would be upset, but of the other hand he didn't really have any choice with the position he put him in. Maybe be mad at her? Since it really is cute that he couldn't contain his excitement I wouldn't be able not to say anything either.
