How did you break the news?

Id like to know some reactions from familys when you told them "Im pregnant!"

When i told my boyfriend i called him and i was like "we need to talk"
i got into his jeep and showed him a paper that said "Prenatal Vitamins"
and he said "Your pregnant" i didnt look at him and i nodded my head yes"

he thought i was laughing and then he took my face and turned it to see me crying and he stopped his jeep and hugged me.

I was scared and excited at the same time.

When i told my mom...well lets not go there
My dad said "As long as im not pregnant we're good"

and his family said "If you think for one minute we're going to be happy, guess again"

so thats my reaction!

whats yours?

  • I got pregnant when I lived in the states with my husband. Had to go back to germany because my visa extended. Well my dad picked me up from the airport and he looked at me and said: "are you pregnant?!"... i said "no"... lol.. i didnt want to tell him yet.

    Well a couple days later i told my parents that I brought them a "little" souvenir from the states. They were asking where its at.. i said "in my belly!"...

    well they went to the kitchen and had a smoke.. haha.. they were shocked, but then totally happy :D A few days later my mom started to buy baby cloth. LOL

  • I was FIVE months pregnant when I found out (LONG STORY!!!) and my hubby was in alaska working. I sent him an email with the ultrasound pictures and telling him he was going to be a daddy in 4 months. His reply email... "Holy shit!" LOL. He was scared and surprised, but after he accepted it he was SOO happy. My family was thrilled because I wasn't planning on having kids EVER. His family is also soooo happy. His mom and dad were looking for a house to buy and when they found out they decided they wanted me and my hubby to move in with them while he gets through the police academy and they bought a HUGE house so we'd all fit. Then I won't be alone and I'll have lots of help. I'm sorry you had such bad reactions. I'M happy for you if that means anything!!!

  • I was terrified to tell my husband (then boyfriend). He laughed and said that from the way I acted, he thought I was going to tell him something bad.

    My mother in law acted as though she had won the lottery.

    My dad suggested I "get rid of it" (Now my children are the center of his universe, go figure)

  • That morning he rolled over in bed and told me I was pregnant. After being told by docs that I could not get pregnant I snapped at him and asked him if I was looking fat or something. Well he was pushing me to get a test so I stopped at a drug store on the way to work and took it at work just to prove him wrong.

    Well when I saw the positive test I passed out in the bathroom and another nurse came to my rescue. She called Chris and told him that I fainted taking a pregnancy test. LOL, I never got to tell him.

  • I waited till i was about 3 months to tell anyone in my family cause i was only 16, and scared out of my mind, but i prob did it in the worse way ever, i told one of the younger kids in the family (knowing they had a big mouth) and just let them do the dirty work. (whoops)

  • I was so excited, I bought a pregnancy test during lunch, took it at work, & took a photo of the positive result with my phone and I sent it to his phone. I just couldn't wait to get home. His response, "my swimmies made it".
