How did you tell you SO you were pregnant?

Last night I hit the one week mark missing my period. So I was so excited I made hubs drive me to a 24 hour cvs so I could buy a test. But then, I didn't want to find out, lol, so I went to bed. First thing in the morning, I got up peed and then jumped into bed screaming I'M PREGNANT. IM REALLY PREGNANT. LOOK AT THIS TEST! WAIT, THE PEE IS DRIPPING OFF OF IT. DO YOU SEE? WE'RE PREGNANT!

DH didn't stop laughing all morning, lol.

  • I went to the doctor and he knew as soon as I stepped out from the door bc I had this huge smile on my face and he couldn't believe it!

  • DD #1 - We drove to the dollar store to grab a test and then went to a gas station so I could test in the bathroom. I came out of the bathroom crying so he knew I was pregnant. I was 17.
    DD #2 - We were arguing about him not having a job and I asked him to move out...while he was packing, I took the test (my friend had bought a two pack and I just happened to have a test in the bathroom). I came out of the bathroom and threw the test at his head. It all worked out :)

  • We were told we couldn't have any more kids so I was pretty shocked when I found out I was pregnant. We had not used any time of birth control for at least five years. We weren't trying to GET pregnant but I were weren't not trying either. After taking my fourth test I took it downstairs and sat it on the computer desk as he played chess on line. hee hee

  • he told me....we went to the grocery store and I got nauseated. Got home and ran to the bathroom to throw up. He tells me " your pregnant" of course I said no (we had been TTC for over a year). Later that day I peed on the stick knowing it would be negative just so I could do the "I told ya so". A few minutes later I was in tears screaming for him to come upstairs. I held up the stick and said "Happy Father's Day"....this actually happened on Father's Day!! To top that off, on my husband's birthday we found out we were having a boy!!

  • With my first I took at test at midnight, my hubby was sleeping, but not for long. I woke him up by running and jumping on him telling him we were pregnant, lol. With my second I left the test sit on the counter by the toilet so when he went in there he would see it. With my 3rd I walked out of the bathroom crying ( unexpected pregnant, I was a little upset) and he looked at me and said "we're pregnant again aren't we?" And then hugged me and said everything would be ok. With my fourth (not even a month after losing my 3rd) I sent him a picture of the test through text ( we were in 2 different states) again I was crying, but because I was happy to be pregnant since I lost the 3rd.

  • With our first, we had tried so hard and had so many problems for a year that I finally quit all my fertility treatments while he was off on an extended business trip anyway. He ended up coming home for a weekend where we had sex and I conceived then...but didn't know it until he was back at work. So I sent him a picture mail of the test and said "we need to talk"...then told him over the phone. I hated that, but you know.

    With our second, we were together and took the didn't come up positive right away like it did my first, so I told him it was negative but I left it on the counter for the "three minutes" anyway. When I told him to go throw it out...and he came out and said "um...this isn't negative" and I thought he was totally screwing with me LOL

    With our third I didn't think there was any possible way I was pregnant...but I left him about a dozen tests out (obsessive) that said otherwise and just pointed.
