When I took my test I knew right away I couldnt wait till my husband got home from work to tell him , so I sent a text n it said "guess what" what seem like 3 hours later (it was really one) he texted back "what" n I sent him a picture of the pregnancy test. A sec later he called n was like "r you pregnant" Iol I said " DUH" he just said "alright," about 10 times lol later when I asked him what was his first thought he said "I thought u was playing a joke n got it off the internet" lol he was so shocked but we been trying but that's a while other story. How did u guys inform your partners

It went well telling DH. He was truly shocked, LOL. What I did was print out a design from Bing that said Big sister and iron it onto DD2's blank onesie. Well, I had a problem.. The stupid program un-reversed the wording changing it from mirror image to not and it was my last sheet of iron on transfer so I just used the ladybug and had to clumsily draw the words on it AND I made everything too low on the onesie but oh well.. After DH got done grilling burgers, I had DD2 bring him the FRER and show him her "pities" which is her clothes "pretties". She's very into clothes and wanted to show him her new digs. Of course he absent mindedly said "You look nice" and paid no attention to her shirt so I had to tell him to read it. He had such a bewildered look on his face. He really was shocked, but happy.

This is the convo, no joke.

Me: Babe, I have something to tell you.
Him: You're pregnant?
Me: How did you know?
Him: It's husband telekinesis.
Me: Okay...

Well, we've been TTC for so long, that he was half expecting it. I told him that if my period didn't show up that day, then we could take a pg test the next day. He was funny because he said "do we have to wait, or can we do it today?" lol So we went to Target, bought a digital and went home. He was waiting in the car because DS was napping in his car seat, so I ran upstairs, POAS and then brought it back down to DH! lol

He bought the tests on the way home from school, and I took it as soon as he came home. I pretty much just stumbled out of the bathroom, white as a ghost, and nodded. I don't even remember what he said; we were just both shocked for a while. Totally surreal.

I texted him a picture of the test since he was at work. He never responded so I called him a few hours later and asked him if he got it. He said he never even opened it because he thought I was at work

*back story*
I work at vet hospital as a surgical tech so I am always sending pictures of crazy surgeries or weird injuries to DF. He absolutely hates stuff like that so he says that now when I send him pictures, if he thinks I'm at work he won't even open them lol.

So much for that idea!

I was holding our youngest dd and pointed to her and said - I'm looks like we're gonna have another one of these!! Lol! Not very creative but I'd known for almost two weeks while he was away at work and this was a suprise so I wasn't sure how he would react! He is pumped!!

AF didn't show up when it was supposed to, but since it was 10 days late the cycle before with 3 BFNs, I didn't want to get my hopes up, but hubby was CONVINCED I was. A week after it still hadn't shown up, I broke down and POAS. It was positive within 2 seconds. I walked out of the bathroom held up the test and said, "I hope you're ready to be a daddy." And he said, "I knew it!!" Not creative, but it works for us.

Well we had talked about it earlier that day. I said something along the lines of "wouldn't that be funny if I was pregnant?" Which of course I did NOT think would have been funny at the time lol. And DH said "I would be excited!" Long story short, I took a test and it was immediately positive so I went home and asked DH if he remembered what he said about being excited. He was confused for about 1.2 seconds and then he got a big ol' grin on his face and he's been happy about it ever since!

I took the test while hubs was at work. So I made a scavenger hunt for him when he got home, taking him upstairs and downstairs till he finally found a glasses case with a bow. He opened it and eyes got HUGE! He hugged me and I felt his tears on my cheek. It was perfect!

Aww...Steph!! My brother is such a wuss. Just kidding! That's really sweet that he cried. This made me tear up a little. I'm SO SO SO happy for you guys!! YAY!!


I wish I had a story like that. I had taken a cheap test that morning and saw a REALLY faint line and showed it to hubby to see if he saw anything and he was like "yeah kinda" but didn't seem too convinced. So later that day I got some good tests and saw the dark line. He was outside with his family and I went up to him and said "I'm pregnant" and he said "are you SURE?". We hugged and then I turned to his dad and brother and nieces and told them right then.
