Ideas on how to tell him I'm pregnant...with an unplanned pregnancy at the most unconvient time? ***i told him
We just moved to a bigger house.
And for reasons I'd rather not go into, we did not want to have another child until dd was around 4 or 5, ATLEAST.
I was on birth control. Ive been sick for a few weeks, and thought I had mono. But nope. Im pregnant.
I don't know how to tell him.
I mean, we will keep the baby and I'm sure want we get past the initial fear and worry we could be happy and excited, but I just don't know how to spring it on him.
Eta/ I didn't tell him the first time.
I passed out in Walmart and was taken to the ER. They said "your blood sugars is a little high....how far along are you?"
I said "what do you mean"
The Doctor said "how many weeks pregnant are you?"
DH and I stated at each other a few minutes before the doctor realized that we didn't know I was pregnant,
Eta: I'm going to tell him
Eta/ I'm not AFRAID to tell him or afraid of his reaction. I'm worried about him. And about how it could affect him. His dad died 2 months ago, and as a result of that his 18 year old brother who was driving the car when it wrecked, went into a depression and committed suicide a little over a week ago. DH is taking it all very hard, they were all very close. Im just hoping that by doing it in a cutesy way it will make it easier for him to be happier about it rather than immediately start worrying about me and the baby. I'm just not sure how much more he can take
Eta: I told him this morning while dd was asleep and we were laying in bed.
Me: when we have another baby, would you want a boy or another girl?
Him:...,I don't know...why?
Me: I'd want a boy.
Him: why's that?
Me: so we could name him Christopher Daniel Lee. ( Chris = his brother, Daniel was fil)..,... How would you feel abou that?
Him: i don't know. We don't have to pick a name right now..it's bit like we're having another one right now.
Me:....yeah...but we've only got 8 months max.... (I'm assuming I'm atleast 5 weeks(
Him:.....8 months.,. Wait... What?
Me: Russell....I'm pregnant...
Him...what?,,,when did you..?
Me: when I went to the doctor the other day.
He was quiet for a few minutes, and started to cry. He asked when I was going back to see my ob and insisted that I call and try to get in earlier than three weeks from now. (dd was a hard pregnancy. I almost went into labor threw times, the earliest at 27 weeks, and ended up on bed rest the entire time). So I have an appointment for Wednesday now.
He's already worried About me and the baby... His mom is coming over for dinner tonight and we will tell her
Also, since someone asked, mil is having a rough time too, we have Invited her to move in with us (she hasbt worked or lived alone In Over twenty years) and she's accepted.
