Ok, for the past few days I have been completely exhausted, nauseous, and my period is 2 days late. Today I took a pregnancy test and it came back positive. Problem is I have a 5yo, 4yo, and an almost 3 month old and my husband is scheduled to have a vasectomy in July(only time he could take time off). I'm not quite sure how to tell him. He is going to be so disappointed. How should I tell him?

  • Wait. Take the test in a couple of weeks. If you're still positive, then tell him. I think it's too early yet.

    I gave my hubby the pregnancy test stick to tell him.

  • you could always force yourself to cry hug him and hand him the pregnancy test and say sorry even though theres nothing to be sorry about...

    its just a pity thing so he wont get mad at you =P thats something id do you think about it, it could actually work lol

  • Well he should have been wearing condoms until July!!! But I agree with everyone, Wait another week or two then take the test again. Could have been a fluke. Good Luck hun. At least you will have 2 very close in age kids though, right??

  • Wait and retake the test. Could be a false-positive reading. As far as telling him, hand him the test result stick. When I found out I was pregnant with my youngest, I gave it to him after he had gotten into bed. Of course it also helped that he had a drink or 2 that evening so I knew he wouldnt just get up and take off since he doesnt drink and drive.

  • Holy crap, you have alot of young kids !
    well, you would have to tell him. It will drive you crazy not telling him.
    and I'm sure if he has that many kids alreayd, one more wouldnt hurt.
