Just wondering if those of you who are pregnant did you surprise your husband with your BFP or if he was with you when you got it…sweating those few minutes out with ya! ha! I surprised my husband with our first pregnancy. We unfortunately lost that baby. I’m getting to my testing window & wondered if he missed out on that excitement or dissappointment last time. Or do I hold out & surprise him.
What do you think your husbands preferred or would have preferred?

I told my husband right away, he was with me when I was testing. I’m not sure I would have had the will power to hold out and surprise him.

I would have liked to have come up with something cute, but we were ttc for a year and after 2 months of clomid I couldn’t wait! I just called him and said to come home on his break and I flat out told him when he walked in the door.

Hubby knew I was testing that morning, but wasn’t in the room with me. I walked out and showed him the test to make sure he could see the line too 🙂 Personally, I just feel like actively ttc is such a 2 person job that we both wanted to be involved in the testing and know right away.

I thought I would do something cute. But when the time actually came, I showed him the pee stick and we both squinted at it trying to see if there was a line or not. Then I made him go buy me a digital test after work that day.

Darling Husband was out of town when I found out so I had to wait till he got home the next day. I enjoyed surprising him but it was hard on my nerves! I wanted to jump out of my skin I was so nervous/happy/excited I wanted to explode especially after the hard time we had getting pregnant. I waited to tell him because I couldn’t tell him over the phone. I wanted to see his face.

I surprised my hubby and it was awesome. I will never forget the look on his face nor how happy he was. If this baby doesn’t stick (I’ve had crappy beta levels), then next time I think I’ll do something different and have him test with me.
Good luck to you! I hope you get a BFP this time!

I told my husband as soon as I tested. I tested alone each time and let him know, but after 2 failed pregnancies, I need him more than ever!

Darling Husband had no idea I even thought I might be. I tested and came downstairs and just told him. He had always said how excited he was for the day where I sat him down and just surprised him with the news. He’s the type who gets his hopes WAY up, and I didn’t think he could handle the disapointment of a BFN… Well right after telling him he got all sad that he didn’t get to wait outside the bathroom for the test to change (I guess his pee test fantasy had changed without me knowing) so we had to redo it. I tested again and he got to sit and watch it change to “pregnant” to make him happy.

My husband was there when i took the test, I actually was too nervous to read the results, so he read it first and then told me that it said YES+

I didn’t tell him I was testing either time I got a BFP…I had woken up before him, taken my temperature, noted it was still high, so I got up and tested. Both times I climbed back into bed with him, woke him up and showed him the test. Like @JewishBride:, after a year I couldn’t wait to tell him.

My husband was surprised, our muchkin was a opps baby. LOL I went to the doctor for something else and had suspected I was pregnant and YEP I was. So when got home I told then Fiance we needed to talk and told him then. He was completely not ready for that one

No cute suprises here! I woke my husband up super early on a Sunday morning to show him the test! LOL!!!

We were trying for awhile and so Darling Husband knew that I would be testing soon (though I didn’t tell him exactly when). I was planning to wait until Saturday, but Friday morning 5 a.m. rolled around and I couldn’t sleep so I took a test. Then debated whether to try to surprise him or wake him up…..in the meantime he called out “what’s going on out there!?” so I just jumped back in bed with the test that said “pregnant” ” )

I took the test, only because I was a tad curious. Neither of us thought I could even be pregnant. My period had been off for a while. So I took it while he was at work, got a BFP, called my Mother-In-Law right away freaking out (at 6 A.M.). I took the test and wrapped it up, put it in a box, wrapped it in christmas wrapping paper, (this was 2 weeks before christmas) put a note on it that said “To: Todd From: Santa”. When he got home, I had the camera waiting and he opened it. It’s now on Youtube.
