He has always been with me when I tested. We are going to start TTC this month, I wont be able to help myself and if I test without him Im going to have to immediately call him. I just cant keep news like that a surprise!

We just found out that we are pregnant on the 31st, which was our 5 year anniversary. I had been thinking for a few days that I might be, so I decided to take the test on our anniversary and it was a great present for both of us! Considering our fertility problems with both of us we did not expect to just "pop up pregnant". :D

When I told my ex, he went with me to get the tests. So I just handed him the positive test.

We have two boys so I made them both t-shirts that said "big brother" when he came home from work that day he saw them both wearing them and says "are you serious?! We're having a baby?!!" He was really excited and surprised:)

I wouldn't wait to tell them. I feel like something so huge like that shouldn't be left and kept a surprise for the father. I feel like he should know right away...



I have always just handed DH the test, or called him depending on where he was at the time.

It was hard to keep it from him but I was out of town when I found out and since it was our 3rd I wanted to do something different from before. The previous times I couldn't hold it in and told him within 5 mins of finding out. Lol.
