    @CookieCreamCakes:  I would have told DH right away, but he was at work and then decided to go out with co-workers for happy hour….which then turned into him going out with his brother to see a band.  So I told him about 13 hrs after the squinter!  The funny thing is he probably goes out until the wee hours of the am about 3 times a year…I could barely contain myself when he finally got home!

    I got a squinter just a few days ago at 12DPO, the bees on here saw the lines, but I didn’t believe it yet. I did another test the day after and the lines were clear as day so I felt better about telling DH. So to answer your question I waited 24 hours and it was pure hell! lol goodluck!

    @CookieCreamCakes:  I was wondering the same thing! We’re not trying to conceive yet but of course I’m lurking all over the threads lol. I think I would need to pee on 8 million HPTs before I told DH! I’m curious to hear more people’s answers…

    I told him right away- I came out of the bathoom holding the test and said “Holy sh*t!” lol

    I had a squinter, but didn’t tell the manbeef right away.  He knew I was ‘late’, but that’s it.  I did end up telling him a few days later than I had tested and I still wasn’t sure…turns out I wasn’t, anyway.


    We were a little disappointed, but that’s life.  Ideally we would conceive after the wedding, not before-I really want to do all the Disneyworld rides!

    I started off by taking one test se digital tests so i told DH as soon as I saw pregnant. I figured even if it wasn’t right, I would need him to help me “get over it”.

    I tested positive, with a bit of a squinter, at 9dpo with FMU on a morning that he had to work 11 pm – 7 am the night before. I got up for work at around 5:45 am, tested positive, and it killed me to wait until he got home at about 7:10 am to tell him! I don’t know how people keep it in for days!

    I got my squinter at 12DPOand my obvious poisitive (on a digital) at 14DPO.

    I woke up DH at 4 in themorning to tell him it was positive!

    He rolled over, went back to sleep, woke up again at 5, and went “Did I dream that you’re pregnant?”
