  • Did your husband/SO not have a part in getting you pregnant? Did you get yourself pregnant? That is why people say "we're pregnant" because it takes 2. DUH!

  • I can see "they're expecting" but only one of them is pregnant. I found out by taking a test in the middle of the night. I woke dh and said "We're pregnant" and he replied "No, your pregnant and I'm going back to sleep" He was a more excitd when he woke up the next morning.

  • I say were pregnant or expecting too because w/o my husband there would be no baby. Plus although he's not physically he's not going thru some of the things he is getting the backlash :-)

  • Because he has to put up with me, so he feels the discomfort, at least in part, too.

  • Well, considering the woman did not get pregnant alone... I think it makes it okay for a couple to say "we're pregnant"

    Especially if the man is there to share the joys of his significant other's baby developing in the womb.
