Hi everyone,
I'm just wondering how you broke the news of your pregnancy to your other halfs?

My first baby (10 years ago!) I phoned my then husband up at work and asked him "if it's 2 blue lines on the hpt does that mean it's positive?" The phone line went silent for a while lol!!
The second baby, I told him we'd have to buy a seesaw for the back garden. But bless him it didn't click for ages lol!!

How bout you?

With my first we were together in the bathroom, he in the bath me peeing on the stick! He knew by the look on my face it was positive before I said anything. With the second I text him saying I had something scary to tell him, then when I told him he text back asking why it was scary. With the third I rang him even though he was about 3 minutes walk from home and let my eldest tell him.

With my second child, my hubby and I had been trying for almost two years. We had lost 2 babies prior to that due to miscarriage. We had basically gave up on even getting pregnant after that. Then one day I woke up and just had that feeling. I went to the store and bought 3 tests, because lets be frank, those suckers are hard to read! I get home and think I am going to be sneaky and take the test, and go in the bathroom with a cup. I am in mid-pee, when my hubby opens the door holding a sandwich asking if I want a bite. Yes, yes, we have one of those type of relationships. He drops the ham and cheese when he sees what I was doing. Tears rolled down his face. He knew too he said when he woke up a couple days ago. So basically we cried over the ham and cheese after finding our that we were indeed pregnant!
