  • Not always....like you said, sometimes I don't want him to have to share my disappointment. I usually do try to warn him that I think I might take one in the next week or so, so that he isn't completely shocked if I finally get the positive I'm hoping for.

  • I always took the tests by my self. This way I did not feel like I was over analising to DH! That way you can surprise him when it happens!

  • I always took mine alone and only sometimes told him it was negative. Mostly because I didnt want to get his hopes up and then crush them.

  • why tell him if you don't know if you are or not because you aren't really telling him anything you are just saying words that mean nothing at that point

  • No, I don't tell him first. I've thought I was pregnant a dozen times!

  • my husband always knows when its time to test because i talk about it so much, but he is never with me when i test. i usually test in the morning and he gets up a few hours before me. i want to be able to surprise him and tell him in a neat and cute way. good luck

  • My husband has known when I was late, but I would always impulsively take the tests alone. Grab a bunch at the dollar store and do it when you are emotionally ready, and then come up with a great surprise when it does show positive! Good luck
