My husband bought the test for me and waited in the next room while I peed on the stick. I was traveling abroad for work for my entire two week wait, and we would talk every day on WhatsApp and I would wonder if it worked. My last day before returning home, I told him I felt like I was getting my period, except that the cramping was more pronounced on one side than it normally is. But I wasn’t sure if that could be implantation, or if I was just noticing it more than in normal months because I was paying such close attention to every symptom.
As soon as we got home after he picked me up from the airport, I went straight into the bathroom. I was expecting to have to wait the 5 minutes, but the two lines showed up almost immediately after the stick got wet! So I yelled to him in disbelief that we made a baby on our first try (he was very proud of his swimmers though). I’m due in October with our baby girl 🙂

Mine was a surprise pregnancy. I had an abscess in my underarm and had been to the doc who put me on antibiotics. She first did a pregnancy test which came up negative, so she decided to give me a test to take home to do in 2 days.
I only tested 3 days later, and it was because I was experiencing some cramps. It came up positive. I phoned my husband at work and just said I needed to go to the store when he got home from work.
Jumped in the car with the positive test, told him I’m pregnant and I needed to buy more tests to confirm 😅

I bought some wine flavoured gummy bears that came in a container shaped like a wine bottle. I taped the test to the back of it under a note that said something like, “Cheers! This will be my only wine for a while!”

Congratulations and best of luck! I am pregnant via IVF so I tested earlier than I told my husband I would so that I could still surprise him in some capacity. We had been trying for two years this month and I have accumulated a few baby items over the years, like booties and onesies and children’s books, so I put together a gift box with a few of those items in it along with the positive tests and burried it all under crinkle confetti. His birthday was conveniently a couple weeks prior so I told him that some of his gifts had arrived later and that I wanted him to open them. First he grabbed the booties then he grabbed the baggie with the positive tests (a digital that spelled out pregnant and a first response line test) and he just smiled and asked, “You’re pregnant?” And then came and gave me the biggest hug. It was super adorable! And I secretly recorded it all 🙂

I took a test right before my husband happened to surprise me by coming home on lunch. Was not expecting the test to be positive, but as soon as I saw it, I blurted out (while pounding on the bathroom door), “Oh my God, I’m pregnant!” and husband responded “Um . . . I’m shitting. Can you give me a min?”
When he came out, he was cautiously optimistic. We experienced three back to back losses last year and a few other chemicals, so a positive test did not ignite excitement in us. However, I am currently 13 weeks along!

Wow, thank you all for the congratulations and fun stories!
I ended up buying this scratch off card online and leaving it for him in the bathroom (since that’s usually his first stop after getting home from work). He came out going “what’s this?” and then scratched it off on our kitchen counter next to me. He couldn’t stop saying “really?!” and “I’m going to be a dad?!” It was so sweet and perfect, I totally cried lol
