Re: GTKY - How'd you tell your SO?
So haven't told DH yet since I just found out umm 2hrs ago. LMAO But my plan is to get a "world's Greatest dad" mug and make him some coffee. I hope i can film it hehe. I'm not very subtle.
Yesterday I took it on a whim on our way out to dinner. My husband was waiting in the car with our son beeping and yelling whats taking so long bc baby was crying. I ran out waving the test saying this! And then tears! Not cute but memorable for us ☺
Well we had to go out of town for a wedding that day, so I didn't have a chance to test again until the next day. Before going to my parents house to pick up our kids, I had him stop at Walmart and I bought two different boxes of tests. We ran home, I took 3 tests at the same time (you know, you need to be sure lol) and he was in our room. I immediately saw the clear blue turn positive and started going "pssssst" to get him to come to the bathroom. He was searching for something and was taking forever so I kept doing it. He goes "I know what that means!" and finally came in. I stared at the tests layed out on the counter and said "I think I'm pregnant" and he picked me up and hugged me, he was so excited.
This was a special one because 3 out of 4 our previous pregnancies, I found out while he was at work. He always told me he wanted to be part of the test taking, and since this is the absolute last baby (#4), he got to be part of it and was thrilled
I typically would wait until my period was significantly late to test. In the past five months, I tested once when my period was a week late.
Anyway, I injured a rib at the gym on day 31 of my cycle (I tend to have 31, 32, 33 day cycles) and it hurt so bad, I decided to go to the clinic because I thought it may have popped out of its socket. So I told H the night before that I was going to test. I hadn't really had any pregnancy symptoms or my normal period symptoms, But I knew if they wanted to prescribe meds or give me an X-ray, they'd want to know if I was pregnant or could be pregnant. So I woke up early about 6 because I had to pee. So I grabbed the stick and sure enough, a positive!!
I went back to the bedroom, shook H and told him. He was still half asleep and he was like "wait a minute let me wake up." He told me today that he didn't even know I was going to test and I should have waited until he was awake, and I was like, dude, I told you the night before. Anyway, I really should have waited until he was a little more woke up, but oh well.
And then he got home and I told him his package came and he was super excited for that and opened it and all. Then he said "What's the second surprise?" And I said "I'm pregnant!" And I showed him the tests and he laughed and got a little teary eyed. Simple and sweet.
first baby i was much more creative, second baby I legt the stick out with some onesies. Poor third baby.
My hubby is a web developer, so I told him that I downloaded an app that kept directing me to a weird webpage.
I handed him my phone, open to a note page that said, "I'm pregnant." He was over the moon.

Expecting #3, EDD 1.29.18
Husband was still out of town, I bought three pumpkins, two medium and one small, thinking he would just get it. He didn't! When he came home he was just like 'oh nice, you decorated'. So I had the HPTs in a ziplock bag and showed him! He said 'oh, you're pregnant!' It was great. I knew I should have put nametags on the pumpkins!
BFP #1 6/13 DD 3/14
BFP #2 9/2/16, CP confirmed 9/8/16
BFP #3 10/10/16 EDD 6/22/17
After 8 dpo my temps steadily climbed, so that gave us an inkling. I confirmed at 11 dpo at woke my husband up at 5:30 am to show him the second line.
Well when I went to throw out the HPT it looked like a BFP and I could understand his confusion. While I figured it was a false positive in typical blue dye fashion on a result read after the 10 minute mark, my mind wandered. I went to the store and bought legit tests (FRER). Well... pretty quick BFP. So being the non-romantic I am, I texted a pic of it to DH saying "Oh well now this is two lines." He then called me and said I need to make up my mind what the tests mean because he can't take the roller coaster emotions. We then "argued" how one can be constituted a BFN and one a BFP. It was about as romantic as the process of getting an embryo into me. We are thrilled though. Yay science!
Not cute but totally us. I told him I was pregnant with DS over the phone and he proposed to me while I was driving on the highway. We're boring

Downside of waiting to tell him...I've been so hormonal and he is just acting like I'm a jerk. So hopefully I don't just snap and say, "For crying out loud, I'm growing your second child. The least you could do is clean up dinner!" That'd be romantic, huh? Haha.
I KNEW he was wrong, so instead of just letting it go, I ran back to the bathroom. Two lines! One was faint, but not a squinter by any means.
So I ran back and said there's two lines, I'm pregnant! He looks at me and says "I know babe but one is faint". He didn't believe me for days until I showed him the line getting darker!
