When my test came back positive, I called my fi (bf at the time) and told him, while I was crying none the less. He didnt believe me, so I took the test, put it in a ziploc bag, drove over to his house, and threw it at him. That’s when he said we needed to get another test, and after the 2nd, or even maybe the 3rd test he finally belived me!

I had gotten up at 5AM on Thanksgiving morning to put the turkey in and decided that I just had to take a pregnancy test…it was positive! I kept trying to wake my hubby up but he was SO groggy from helping me bake pies late into the night. I finally shined my cellphone in his face and said “look at this!” and shoved the pregnancy test in his face. We had been TTC for a couple months, but the look of shock/excitement/fear on his face is something I’ll never forget. We’ll always remember that extra “blessing” we had that Thanksgiving!

@ashe89:  We only had one test at our house. Darling Husband wanted to run out and get more, but everyone was closed on Thanksgiving…and we “googled” it and found that if it has the two lines it’s probably accurate. That’s too funny that your Fiance had you take three! 🙂

Darling Husband and I had only been dating for about 4 months at the time; so needless to say, my little pumpkin was not planned. When my super hang over from New Year’s lasted about 2 weeks, he suggested I take a pregnancy test. I thought it was just a stomach flu from hell, but thought *What the hell, there’s no way I’m pregnant! This will just shut him up*. So I go and take the test, I see negative, and think we are in the clear. He went to the bathroom an hour or so later and called for me “Uhhh Cherrycola, this test is positive….” So I go and look and see that the test is still negative and proceeded to argue with him about how can he not know how to read a pregnancy test. Turns out *I* was the one that couldn’t read a pregnancy test. **Slaps forehead**  I was terrrrrrified, he made me feel better, had my baby girl, got married 2 years later, happy ending for all.

When we first started TTC I had plans of cute ways I’d tell him…baby baseball jersey with our name, or something like that. When we got our first definitive positive it was after almost a year of trying, and I just crawled back into bed with the test and woke him up with a “BABY I’M PREGNANT WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!!”

The second one, a few months later, ended up being pretty much the same thing. I had woken up at 5 needing to pee, took my temp, it was still up, so I took a test. Darling Husband woke up needing to pee, but I had been in the bathroom so long (waiting for the test, and then having a mini-panic attack) that he thought it would smell really bad and he wouldn’t want to go in after me, so he went to the upstairs bathroom. When he came back, I was sitting on the bed with my cell phone and the positive test, and just said “I’m pregnant.” Nothing cute or exciting, sadly, but after that long I’m not sure I could have even waited until proper morning to tell him.

@stardustintheeyes:  One of my friends was also a smoker and when she got her positive pregnancy test she was so freaked out she drove around smoked like 10 cigarettes.  She never touched them after that but it was hilarious when she told us, we were like what is wrong with you!? HA

@stardustintheeyes:  LOL yes I think this was my friend too she was so freaked out and she could not believe it! It was awesome though because after the pregnancy she never picked them back up which is pretty neat 🙂

Fiance and i were on our way to a bar and i convinced him to get a hotel and take a pregnancy test,  so i took one and it was positive i was soo shocked because i had just gotten the depo shot like a week ago and the urine test was negative, so i took 4 more tests and were all positive, Fiance was suuper happy and i was just sitting there all shocked lol took me awhile for the news to sink in ha. but my daughter was the best surprise ever!

My hubby was away flying for work.  It was a Friday and he would be home on Sunday. I too was in disbelief because I had a false positive two months prior.  I had plans to go out with girlfriends Friday night and I was 4 days late and decided I should test just to make sure before a night of fun!  Good thing I did because it was positive.  I didn’t tell anyone because I wanted to re-test on Saturday.  Saturday I took another one and it was positive.  I was going to wait and tell hubby on Sunday in person but I couldn’t stand it.  I must have called the poor guy 12 times in a matter of a few hours.  Finally I took a picture of the test and said Happy Early Bday with the photo attached.  He called right away and said I’m super excited but we are pushing back from the gate and I need to fly the plane can’t talk!  When he got to the next location he said that he told his first officer what just happened and said you’re flying I’m in too excited to think! LOL  I probably should have waited until he was at his hotel that night but I couldn’t stand it!

The first time, Darling Husband and I had broken up about a month before I got pregnant. We were trying to work things out but of course he wanted the extra benifit whether we were together or not and I couldn’t tell him no. I started feeling sick a lot and really tired and when I was about a week late (I had never really paid much attention because I was really stressed so I figured it was from that) I went to bed feeling so sick that I took a bucket to bed with me. The next morning I took a clearblue digital and it didn’t even show the hour glass. It went imediatly to pregnant. I started freaking out wondering how and if I should tell him. I didn’t want him to think I was lying to get him back but I also didn’t want him to think I expected him to be with me just because I was pregnant. I sat down next to him holding the tests and woke him up telling him we needed to talk. Then I went on a ramble about how it might not be true, but it might be, but I wasn’t sure, and that they aren’t always right, etc and he just sat there looking at me like I had gone crazy. Finally he said, “what are you talking about?” I was so nervous that I dropped the test while trying to show it to him. We decided that we would spend the day apart to think about what each of us wanted and that we would talk about it over dinner so I was making our food and when I tried to close one of the doors I dropped my food and it landed on the hoodie I was wearing and I started crying and getting mad because I couldn’t wear it to work the next day because it was ruined and he just laughed at me and said, “you are so TOTALLY pregnant!” 

The second one was planned. We started trying the day before Thanksgiving and got pregnant 2 days before Christmas. I found out early in the morning when I woke up needing to go and figured I would take a test then and when it came up positive I went upstairs thinking of how I might tell him. I tried to wake him up to tell him that our son was going to be a big brother or something of the sort but he WOULDN’T WAKE UP so I threw the test at him (I had it in a sandwich bag) and it hit him in the head. So he found out be being hit by the test because he wouldn’t wake up to listen to me.
