Hi everyone, super new to this (as of 10 mins ago!!!). I am home alone and have been feeling really c**p for about a week. My fiance happily went off on his stag do today for two nights. It dawned on me that my period is late so I popped along to the chemist and got a pregnancy test. I was pretty sure I felt pregnant but, having never been pregnant I wasn't sure...anyway, I am - the clear blue test says 2-3 weeks grin) I know my fiance will be thrilled and this is kinda perfect as we are getting married one month today. The thing is, he isn't here...he is on a stag weekend with his Dad, my brother-in-law, my brother and his close friends. He's having a ball. If I tell him now I am certain he won't be able to keep it to himself. My Mum is at my sister's house tonight, so I could tell her, but I think he would be upset if I told her before him...my best friend is coming to stay tomorrow, but, again I think he should know first. Any advice on what to do? I'm thinking keeping quiet until Sunday will be haaaaard work!!! p.s. i keep crying!

I'd keep it to yourself for as long as possible....it will be a lovely surprise for when he comes home too ( plan a way to tell him-bootees on his pillow?).....and crying is a fairly normal response!!
congratulations too xx

Thanks soo much scotsgirl64 I wasn't sure anyone would reply. I was thinking I could either give him a sesame seed and say, 'That's how big our baby is!' or just tell him he now has sole responsibility for the cat's litter tray!

Wait until he gets home and tell him in a nice way, like with a clue/hint.

You could get a box for something he wants and put the positive test in there, or as a PP has said; booties or a dummy!

mum2Bomg Fri 01-Apr-16 18:20:13

Ah that's a lovely idea xxx

Skiingmaniac Fri 01-Apr-16 18:22:18

Congrats!
I put a bread roll in the oven and told him to look.....took a wee while him to get it! 😄

mum2Bomg Fri 01-Apr-16 18:56:45

Haha! I'm not sure he'd work that one out quickly

mum2Bomg Fri 01-Apr-16 18:58:32

It's so strange not being able to tell anyone - I've started talking to my baby already! Lolhmm

mum2Bomg Fri 01-Apr-16 18:59:57

I'm 34 and have been on the pill for years so I was pretty sure it wouldn't happen so soon.

I told my DH to come home early and bring some nice food for supper and a decent non alcoholic drink for me.

When he got home I asked if he'd like to see the retrospective that I had been curating and took him upstairs to the bathroom to show him my collection, "Sticks I Have Weed On".

Apparently he got it when I stipulated a non alcoholic drink grin

Definitely keep it to yourself until you can tell fiance, and after that both of you need to keep it to yourselves until after twelve weeks in my opinion, as before then the chances of miscarrying are so high that it would add to the heart ache to have to tell everyone.

Hopefully everything will be fine though!smile

LittleLionMansMummy Tue 05-Apr-16 15:47:04

I whatsapped a photo of the test along with 'better get saving then!' It was a bit different though as I'd suspected and told him I was fairly certain I was pregnant before taking the test. We're keeping it to ourselves for a bit longer. Congratulations!

lightcola Tue 05-Apr-16 16:05:21

Congratulations! I too think you should keep it to yourself until he comes home. It's such a special moment that should be shared between the two of you before anyone else. I know it's hard, I remember wanting to scream it from the rooftops, but it will be worth it...especially seeing the look on his face.

proudmom135 Tue 05-Apr-16 16:08:04

Let your fiance knows first. I know how excited you are but if you'll do any of those steps, you will face different consequences. Choose which one will give you a better outcome. wink

scienceteachergeek Tue 05-Apr-16 18:18:03

How did you tell him??!! smile Congratulations flowers

Goingtobeawesome Tue 05-Apr-16 18:20:18

Wonderful news. Your DP has to be the first to know imo.

mum2Bomg Wed 06-Apr-16 12:21:37

I did it like this in the end! Waited and didn't tell anyone until he came home. He said he was really proud of me for waiting and really happy I told him first smile I have him the box and said I would definitely be making a Dr's appt (he knew I hadn't been feeling well) Thanks everyone I'm so happy I did the right thing x

iwillbemrsminty Wed 06-Apr-16 12:47:46

Awwwww that is lovely OP! Congratulations!! I have just found out I'm pregnant too, just this morning and my DP had just come home from an 11 hour night shift and I just showed him the test, said 'we've only gone and done it!' and burst into happy tears! Damn, wish I'd had time to think of something a bit more original like you!

SouthDownsSunshine Wed 06-Apr-16 13:04:21

Ah that's lovely, I've just welled up!

scienceteachergeek Thu 07-Apr-16 10:50:47

Lovely way to do it smile congratulations again. Thanks for letting us know!

mum2Bomg Thu 07-Apr-16 11:17:52

To be honest I was just really grateful for your support. I had no one to speak to and you were all lovely xxxx

londonrach Thu 07-Apr-16 12:05:17

Congratulations xxx. (I cried too and took another test just to make sure)

user1460124741 Fri 08-Apr-16 15:24:58
