Just curious how your significant others reacted when you told them you were pregnant ...

I've been mentioning taking a test for the last 3 weeks and my BF seemed to blow it off and never mentioned it unless I did. Finally, I picked up an EPT last night. I showed it to him and he said, what would be so bad if you were? That truly made everything seem ok, knowing that he wasnt' freaked out about it. We are 26 years old, we're not kids anymore and although we aren't married (we were waiting for him to finish his MBA May 06), we have very supportive families and friends and know we can make this work. Needless to say, as I was walking into the bathroom to take the test, he says "I seriously doubt you are" and thought I was joking when I came back with the positive results. He held me while I cried and told me it would be ok. He's been really quiet about his reaction, but I think we're both still in shock.

Mine was in shock to say the least. I got pregnant within the first week of us sleeping together. We had only been dating about a month. He didnt talk for quite a while. After about a week it sunk in for both of us and we got a game plan together.

He was actally excited! The whole thing was very overwhelming tho. I'm going back to school and I need to find a new job. He works two jobs. We also have a 4 year old and we still don't know what we are going to do childcare wise. But he has been very sopportive and optimistic that everything will turn out ok. So far, so good and now we are very excited! That is wonderful that you both have sopportive families, I wish you the best of luck and Congrats on your pregnancy!!

josh was pretty upset when i found out i was preggo this time. he really did not want any more kids until a few more years down the road. we are not really finacially set for another kid but we will get it together just like we always have. when i first told him he just got up and walked away, then later when i was freaking out he comforted me. he does not talk about it much but when the baby comes he will be fine. he has always acted funny when i was pregnant. with number one, he was excited, the ususal first time dad. with number 2 he swore that it was not his but then would not give her to me after she was born and spoiled her rotten. with number 3 he said it was my baby that he was not helping me do anything, she is now his baby and she rarely ever even wants anything to do with me. so he has always acted like a butt when i have been pregnant

Thanks for this thread. It is nice to hear that there are other women out there that have men that werenít just so extremely thrilled from the start. Like others, Geoffrey was not mad.
I had been telling him for about almost a week that I was late. He kept telling me I wasnít pregnant, that it would come. He came home one night with wings, and beer, and we ate, and immediately I got sick. I told him I was going to go get a test, and he again said that I was not pregnant. I took 2 tests. The first one, the line was really pale, the second one, the line was dark, but only ĺ of the line showed up. I showed him both of them, and he said he didnít trust them.
I was quite bothered by this, and all night he kept telling me that I was not pregnant. The next day I called and made a free appointment at a womens pregnancy center, and made him go with me. I knew I was pregnant, so I asked the girls to show him and give him the result first. That night we got home and he immediately called his mom, his dad, and all of his brothers and told them. For quite a few days he told me he didnít think that it had sunk it yet.
Now he talks to my belly and all though. He has is really actually quite excited because a month after we found out I was pregnant with our son, he got sent to Iraq. Coming home when our son was 5 weeks old. He is glad to be here this time.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you!!!!

I was upset with each one of them. I never felt the time was right, but for me, I don't think I could have ever come up with a right time. With #1, he cried because he was so happy. With #2, he cried because he was happy. Lets see, with #1 and #2, I cried out of nerves, and uncertainity. Here I am back in the same boat. I am wondering if I am again. I have had some feeling of being preggo for the last couple of weeks. I took a test last week, but I think it was too early and got a BFN. I should have started today, and nothing so far. I can honsetly say that this is NOT the right time!! We are closing on our house inn 5 days!! I dont know if I am or not. I have Graves Disease and I am starting to have problems again, so I think that may be the cause of the AF being MIA. I dont know, I will have to wait and see.
