  • I would say.

    It depends on the man and the circumstances.

    My husband was incredibly happy & excited. We had been married 6 years before I became pregnant with our only.. He was thrilled.. He was, I will say without hesitation, happier and more excited about it than I was.

  • It depends on your current situation and the daddy-to-be. The first time I got pregnan we weren't planning it but we weren't NOT trying either, you know? Dh literally tripped on his own feet when I tld him lol. He was way excited and nervous about everything so new. The 2nd time we planned it and again dh was thrilled. I miscarried and I've never seen dh cry so much, for months like I did. The 3rd time around we planned it and dh was happy when I told him, but not so much as before because he was so scared we would lose another.

  • I think it all depends on the situation. Was it a planned pregnancy, Do you both see the relationship as long term...things like that. My own husband was funny. I took the test and got the results. He demanded I tell him over the phone and not wait. So, I called. The others guys told me he was jumping up and down and yelling and generally acting crazy. Yeah, he was happy. It was a planned pregnancy.

  • I agree with the ladies above. It all depends on the circumstances. I know my DH was happy when we found out. We were already pregnant for 4 years by then and just moved into our house so it was perfect timing for us.

  • Depends on the person. Some men freak out while others are happy.
