  • My husband bought the test, and stood outside the bathroom door until I took it, he wanted to find out the same time I found out. Not very romantic, but I thought it was cute that he was so anxious.

  • That is funny, he told you.
    I told mine over a shot of whiskey at an Irish Pub. Last drink for 10 months.

  • With my first, DH was the one who just had a feeling and he kept hounding me to take a test. I remember it was the first night of a new season of "House" (one of my fave shows) and we had just hung up the phone, him harping on me to take a test & call him right back. (He was working out of town at the time and living in an RV). I decided to watch the beginning and take the test during the commercial break. I did, I was, and no more House was to be watched that night. He called his boss and said he'd be out for the next 2 days and he came home & the next day we paraded around & told the whole family. :)
    This time around (I'm 26 weeks now) I believe I knew the moment of conception. (Call me crazy... my mom says she knew when I was conceived too.) I told him I REALLY thought I was pregnant and it killed me to wait 2 weeks to be able to take a test. Finally the day came and voila!! I showed him the test & we cried happy tears.

  • I took the test, was shocked and climbed back in bed. when he woke up I just told him "so, we're pregnant' Lol he was still pretty sleepy and couldn't quite get words out but he grabbed me and gave me a strong embrace. It was sweet, then he had to get ready for work. Lol. Not very romantic or anything but i loved it.

  • DH knew before I did! We were testing every other day, and I had done my usual pee on a stick and set it on the counter routine (we had bought cheap test in bulk, and they took 5 minutes to show a result). I got breakfast going, and sat down to eat. DH got up and went into the bathroom, then came right out, grabbed my arm and wirelessly pulled me into the bathroom where we both stood, staring in disbelief at 2 dark lines. We then started laughing with joy and crying and hugged. So he knew before I did! =)
