  • I have 4 kids. This last time I was happy and showed the test to hubby right away. We still had an infant but I wanted to have another soon and get it out of the way. I'm pushing 30.

  • The first time, I was stunned and a little panicked. I told my parents immediately because they were visiting from out of state and I wanted to tell them in person! The second time, I was thrilled...I called my husband at work to tell him, and the word just kind of filtered to other people from there.

  • Elated and scared and in disbelief and everything in between! We were trying, so we were definitely happy. It didn't feel real. My hubby was actually the one who showed me the test. I had been testing incessantly, and so it was just part of the morning routine. I set the test on the bathroom counter and got breakfast ready. My hubby got up and went to use the restroom, and took one look, wordlessly grabbed my hand and pulled me into the bathroom, where we stood in disbelief, and started laughing and hugging.

  • Freaked out. I didn't really believe it. It wasn't until I went to the doctor the next day that it really hit me.

    About 2 weeks before I found out, I was feeling tired all the time. I was also going to the bathroom a lot. Then my period, which was usually regular, never came. So I took a pregnancy test and sure enough I was pregnant!!

  • I would never take a test without my Husband so I didn't have to "tell" him either time. I feel like it is a moment to be shared. :) The first one we were shocked and totally excited. It was unexpected but welcomed from the beginning. The second we tried for so we were elated that it happened so quickly. Both times, I called my parents and he called his and then we slowly announced it to whoever we saw next...(although this last one went right onto facebook because people knew we were trying)
