Sometimes it feels good for me to remember, even though it hurts, because it reminds me that Cora existed, that my pregnancy with her really happened, and wasn't just a good dream gone really bad.


How did you tell your DH/SO that you were pregnant?

Well, the first time, we found out by miscarrying. The second time, he knew I was testing. When I squealed, he knew. This past time, we both knew before I even tested.

We were bowling and I had poas with an ic. I decided to back it up with a FRER at the bowling alley. We were with the kids and I went to the bathroom and came out crying. Happy crying, and he knew right away. I did not tell him I was testing, and he just cried with me and said "congrats mama." I will never poas in a bowling alley again. Too many memories. Will have to find somewhere else next time, maybe the grocery store? lol

We went out to dinner, had drinks, didn't use a condom and he looked at me and said I think we may have made a baby, lol.... Then I tested 2 weeks later and he was right

I woke up really early the day after Thanksgiving knowing that if AF wasn't here that I'd be testing. It was seriously like 5 a.m. and still pitch black out. I did my usual routine (pee in a cup, dip the test) and waited and waited for a line to show. I thought it was going to be negative so I dumped my pee, rinsed the cup then stared at the test waiting for it to finish (it was an internet cheapie and they take forever!) and all of a sudden I saw a line! I started freaking out and was mad at myself for dumping my pee because I had a better test that I could have used.

So then I crawled back in bed and he was like "having morning sickness?" (to him everything is "morning sickness") and I said no, but I have to show you something. So we went in the bathroom and he was squinting because the light was really bright. I was like "Do you see it?!" and he said yeah and we hugged and went back to bed and cuddled.

*sigh* I can't wait to share another BFP with him!

LOL!! Mine was at Walmart. We were TTC, and my period was late, and I'd tested a few days earlier (1 day before af was due, and the day she was due) and had gotten bfns. So another couple days goes by and no AF, so I decided to get another test. DH worked at Walmart, and I had to drop him off at work, so I bought the test and used it in the Walmart bathroom so I could tell him first. I went out to where he was working with tears in my eyes and he thought it was negative. He grinned so big when I told him it was positive....

With my loss I actually didnt think I was preg. I was charting and dh got injured right before I o'd so I thought we were out. I relaized I was sick and 4 days late. I took the test came out the bathroom and was like do you see a line and he said no. . my mil saw it and we went and got another one and it was darker. That was New years day. Never thought in 2009 I would have 2 pregnancies, a newborn, and a m/c (im due December 27th)

Because I was charting, I kinda thought I was pregnant, but the first test (at night) was negative. So I tested the next night, while he was at work. I suppose I should have waited to tell him in person, but I was so excited I called him and said "Guess what!" He didn't guess, so I told him. He was so excited, he came home right away, and had me do another test so he could watch the line show up

I feel the same way about Autumn

We didn't think that we could get pregnant naturally, so the only reason we tested was to 'rule out' pregnancy Looking back, I had ALOT of EPS, but I chalked it all up to PMS. We weren't planning on trying until an unknown time in the hazy future, but I still secretly hoped that I really was pregnant.

After I POAS, I left the bathroom to pace around...went back in probably a lot sooner then 3 minutes (just couldn't help it). I think I might have started hyperventilating, and I said, "Oh my God!" a few times. DB asked what was wrong, and I said, "It's positive!" I looked up at him, and just started crying hysterically. It was in our bathroom, and it was very surreal
