I always test without telling him, late or not. He’s a worrier, and as much as I’m paranoid about it, if I let him know every time I tested, I can’t even imagine what a mess he’d be. haha

I bought a whole bunch of cheapies so I test esp since I stopped BC last month and I am all wonky chart-wise and having baby fever!  I don’t tell him (I did once post-facto) and I don’t think he would care unless it was positve.

I don’t go out of my way to tell or hide. My husband knows that I take them. However, when I do finally get our positive,  im debating whether I should tell him 1 on 1 or suprise him via edible arrangement or something.  He is big into romantic gestures

I test OPKs without him knowing all the time!  Why should both of us worry?  He seems pleasantly unaware of the science behind all this TTC business.  I’m okay with that haha.

@roweboat:  this post made me impulse-buy my husband a custom New York Giants jersey lol. He got a custom Yankees jersey in Puerto Rico on our honeymoon.  He LOVES those teams. I plan on giving him the Giants jersey as soon as we receive it. What he won’t know is that I also ordered a miniature  Yankee jersey and a miniature Giants jersey that I will give him when we get our bfp! I’ll probably put it with a note with something to the effect of “With me on your roster, we’ll have an all-star team! Can’t wait to catch some games with you daddy! Love, Baby C.”  I’m gonna order some tissues too, because I foresee alot of happy tears!

I’m already anal as it is, I don’t need Darling Husband freaking out with me, so I don’t tell him. Besides, I really don’t need him to figure out exactly how many times I’m testing… :/ I’d also like to suprise him if I do get a BFP.

I’ll tell him if he asks but I try to keep quiet. This past week, I got a +OPK and didn’t tell him coz he doesn’t exactly work well under pressure LOL.

i will test without telling him, my husband said he wants me to suprise him with the news as he’d get disappointed if the tests came out negative

We are not ttc but AF sometimes skips a month so I test whenever that happens. I’ll tell him if he’s home otherwise I don’t see the point of getting him all crazy!

at first i was super vigilent about making sure i told him everything… and then i discovered the emotional toll it took on him was so much more than i expected!! now i tell him if i think something is up… but i dont tell him everytime i take a test (partly because i’m crazed and i take them all the time! and partly beacuse i dont want to stress him out…)
