How did you break the news to DH?

I always wake up before DH, and for whatever reason decided to take a test a little early. We’d been trying for about 6 months, but DH didn’t really pay attention to my cycles, just liked the FW ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I took the test in the bathroom alone and I was pretty sure it was positive, but I didn’t have a back up test that I could find. I got in bed and was kinda in a daze and I sat cross legged and just stared at DH for a few minutes trying to figure out what to tell him. I didn’t totally believe the test. He woke up with me sitting in bed looking at him with crazy eyes and was like, “what’s wrong?!?!” so I told him. We went and looked together and agreed there was a line, then I found another test and it came up the same way. I had to get going to work, but I ended up calling my sister like 4 times before she finally answered and we both told our parents the same day too. I couldn’t have kept it secret from any of them for even a day.

A bit different for me; DH broke the news to ME! We did IVF and I was too nervous to get the call after my beta HCG blood test. They called him at work and he told me when he got home. I saw his car pull up the driveway and started crying, I was so nervous. He walked in, all serious, and I asked : it didn’t work, uh? He walked up to me and said : you’re gonna be a mom!!!!! (tears as I type this!).

kryssbride :  Just tell him already.

You should have told him you missed you period. Why have it as a secret, tell him the instant you find out. Pee on the stick with him in the other room waiting to see what it says.
