Ok, here's a question I'll send out into the CafeMom void. I am 39 years old and my husband is 47. We have a beautiful 5-year old son named Paul. I just took a positive pregnancy test yesterday and I can't decide if I should tell my husband now or wait until after my doctor's appointment on October 21.
Here are my reasons for not telling him now:
1. He can't keep a secret to save his life and we miscarried our last one. I don't want him to tell the world and then find out I'm not going to be able to carry the baby.
2. While I think this will ultimately be good news, we are not financially stable right now. He's supposed to get some money over the weekend, so he might be feeling better about money by my October 21 appointment.
On the other hand...this would be an important thing to know. ... So, I guess my question is... is it a bad idea to keep this a secret for 8 more days?
Thanks in advance.
