late period, could possibly be pregnant, should I tell my husband?

ok, so I took a test a few days ago, before my missed period because I was having some pregnancy symptoms I had with my pervious pregnancies. My husband and I are not trying to get pregnant, but I think we slipped up this month doing NFP. So, today I was suppose to start my period. Should I let him know or not say anything? Or if he askes me when I'm suppose to start what should I say? Its so close to christmas and I don't want him worrying, but at the same time I'm worrying.

  • What did the test say? If it was neg I wouldn't worry about it. With the holidays stress could easily explain a late period.

  • Wait until he asks, and if he does, then tell him. After the holidays if you are more sure, then go ahead.

  • well, since I've been charting I've yet to be wrong about a missed period.... its been 38 days since the first day of my last mp.... which is normal for me.. I usually go from 32-40 days, also I have a thyroid imbalance, which causes my periods to be delayed, but because I am charting my cycles I can tell when I ovulate, except this month because I lost my thermometer, so I'm not 100%, whcih is the reason why I think I miscalculated. I thought I ovluated sooner, then I looked again and I ovulated later than I thought, I originally thought I was going to start 4 days ago, and then relaixed I'm suppose to start today.... and it hasn't happened. I just took my temp this morning and because of what it says it looks like I could be pregnant, but definietly not starting today.... does that make sense?

  • Get a real test with a positive result and then tell him. You might just have the swine flu.

  • I know thats why I asked! I was originally not going to say, but the suspense is killing me! I just wish I knew one way or the other.... and I have already been having anxiety attacks as it is!

  • I would tell him your concern and take the test with him knowing about it. The thing that makes a man mad is when you hide things, especially something as big as this...

  • Wait a week, then take another test if you haven't started. If the test comes back positive then tell him. If it comes back negative then don't worry about it. There isn't any use in putting the pressure on him if it comes back negative.
