How would you feel?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Monday night I took a pregnancy test, positive. DH and I are happy! He calls his mom and tells her before I can tell him not to. I'm paranoid, I don't want to tell anyone until I have my first scan. Then, he calls my brother to tell him. Between the conversations I tell him I don't want anyone to know yet. Now everyone knows, and I was quiet the rest of the night. I was upset, and I get annoyed anytime I think of it now.

How would you feel?

PS: The same thing happened last time, as well. You'd think DH would remember, right?

Your dh was just so excited. Just let this one go, not worth fighting over.

He isn't normally really really stupid. I just feel he jumped the gun a bit.

Quoting s.osborne:

 No, men are really really stupid.

 Well that's good you didnt fight :) Hopefully today he can contain himself and keep quiet!

Quoting Anonymous:

No, we didn't fight about it. I was just kind of down about it. I told everything to him calmly. I get his excitement, I'm excited to.

Quoting smushy79:

 Cut him some slack. He was probably really excited. I can see where that would be annoying but not worth getting in a fight about. Congrats!!

There was no fight about it. Everything was calmly stated and such. It's just a slight annoyance, and I know I'll get over it.

I just wanted to announce it differently.

Well, everyone knows, so it doesn't matter anymore. I just wanted to tell people differently. Not before the pee dried on the stick.

Why not? Miscarriages aren't something to hide shamefully.


Quoting Anonymous:

Yeah. I figured it'd be something stupid to be upset about. What if I had a miscarriage? I wouldn't have wanted everyone to know about it.



Quoting Anonymous:

Meh. I wouldn't be that upset. He's just excited and wants to share his joy.

I would be glad my husband was so happy and excited about having a baby.

I wouldn't be ashamed of it, I just wouldn't want anyone to know. It's something I'd rather deal with alone with DH. I don't like attention very much, and dislike pity. I know there'd be a lot of that going around and it would make me want to disappear the next time we see family.

I am glad he's excited, it was just annoying. I wanted to tell everyone differently, and especially after getting a positive from the blood test I'm going to do today.
