We have a dog, and we’re always taking and sharing photos of him. My husband was out of town overnight when I tested positive. I have no idea how I managed to keep it a secret, but I used my phone to take a picture of the dog with the positive test and waited until he got home. Then I said that I got a great picture of the dog today and then showed it to him on my phone. He broke into the biggest grin ever! And the way I told him was perfect, considering he proposed to me in front of the dog years ago. 🙂

Both times I just blurted it out randomly haha. The first time he was at work and I told him on the phone. The second time he was half asleep on the couch and I sort of did a **cough cough** I’M PREGNANT **cough cough**

I am going to tell him that I need to take his ring into the shop to get it documented for the insurance company (or some such nonsense)– and I’m going to get it engraved with the inscription “1+1=3” 

He’s an enginner aka math genius, and I am anything but! When we were in college together he was taking advanced calculus and physics classes while I was struggling with basic algebra, and he was tutoring me– he tried to convince me that none of it was harder than balancing a checkbook– he used to say that if you can add 1 & 1, you can do anything… needless to say I still can’t do calculus, but I like my version of math more anyway. 🙂

My husband will be in the trenches supporting me as I test. I have to say, I don’t understand the whole “waiting and doing a big reveal” thing. Is it not his baby and his experience, too? Do you not want his support while you are finding out? It all seems a bit….1950’s to me. Removing the dad from the process at that juncture just seems really old fashioned.

I love all of these… especially @plantains haha!!


I had given up basically because I was so late so I peed on the stick, left it on the counter, had a shower and when I got out he was looking at it and asked how to read it…. then he told me it was positive and I just about lost it!  So technically, he knew before me! 🙂

@crayfish:  I am personally not a fan of the oh so dramatic “I might be pregnant” conversation. If I am of course he will find out right away. If I’m not, well that’s that. I just don’t see the point in a major buildup about it either way.
