  • i was fighting with mine 2. actually prob at the end of everything. I hated his guts so i just left it on the bathroom sink and when he figured it out he figured it out. Just leave the test on the sink and if he asks say well guess you did it. Don't b mad at me.

  • I wasn't planning or trying to prevent it on my last one (didn't think I'd ever be able to have any more, was a miracle I had the one before), and at this particular time we weren't financially ready, our marriage was in downward spiral and it just couldn't have been a worse time to be pregnant for us. I'd been sick but I have hormone imbalances so I thought that's what it was. Before I would take any medication I'd take a test just to make sure since we weren't using any b/c. So I went in, took the test and came back out and said "well it's definetely not something the hormone pills will help with this time!" while I was holding up the stick.
    Our daughter would love to know those were my first words and his were something like "oh shit, this couldn't have happened at a worse time!".
    It worked out tho and she's the gift we didn't even think we wanted but now couldn't be complete without :)
    I'd just show him the stick

  • With my first pregnancy test with my first child, I called Bill at work because he knew I was taking the test earlier in the day. That night I called him at lunch and all you heard was "WOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO." Now with the baby I am pregnant with now, Bill was home and I asked him to look at the test. Bill looked at the test with me, he turned around hugged me and said CONGRATS. I am so glad Bill is the supportive force in my life, which makes all of these tense moments much easier to handle.

  • I'd just tell him remember all those times we had sex and you failed to wear a condom. Well, I'm pregnant and it's all your fault! That's how I emotionally told my dh about baby #3!

  • I walked into our garage and said honey you have 9 months to finish rebuilding that car. His friend ran out of the garage laughing. I yelled to his friend, you won't be laughing when you get home. My 3 best friends and I were all pregnant at the same time.
    With our 2nd child, I told my DH to save the date of December 24th. He asked why. I said b/c that's my due date. My DH was supportive and scared. I don't have the best health when I'm pregnant.
