Telling DH I'm pregnant 😊

Just found out this morning using a hpt. Git a really faint line on two tests but am confident they're accurate. I'm not yet officially 'late' but know I ovulated 12 days ago as I used a fertility monitor. This baby has been very much planned & my DH will be thrilled. Something is telling me I should keep it to myself for now though.. I don't know why. Perhaps until I've actually missed my period & it can't be a mistake? It's no. 2 for us & this is month 7 ttc.
For context, in our first, I was a little upset about his reaction when I told him, (I woke him up very early in the morning & blurted it out into his face in excitement & he was a little bit cranky for a few mins before coming round & celebrating with me) so could be connected to that. I sort of think next week will be time enough to tell him but then think he has as much right as I do, to know...
Also, its my birthday next week, was thinking I could turn the surprise back on him then. We're also heading on hols tomorrow so it's kinda hectic here. Not sure why I'm hesitating. Wwyd?

Text him or call him right now: "Your boys can swim. Your balls work. Come home, you stud." wink grin

I'd just tell him tonight. If it was the other way around (and I KNOW it can't be) and he knew you were going to have another child and then didn't bother to tell you how would you feel?

Thank fuck cos I was starting to wonder!

Well I wouldn't tell him to come home if he was at work! I text my dh because I couldn't wait but i think it might be nicer to tell him in person when he's home from work?

You're right pottering. I would want to know immediately. I think I'd just feel more confident if I wasn't just literally just pregnant. But you're right, i'll tell him today. We're on hols with the whole extended family so I'll need his help to conceal my not drinking at the very least. smile

Mykindom, definitely wouldn't call him home! I'll tell him when he's home. Will try to think of a fun way to do it!

I threw the test at hubby and shouted
"Well look at what you have gone and done"
This was child number 6 and after hubby's chemo. He was very happy with himself

Brilliant 6, what a lovely distraction from treatment. We're both from large families so I know how fun it is.

I threw up out of the car window, which was quite a hint. Don't do that. grin

Ha Kali, I expect that gave him an idea! I told him & he's absolutely over the moon. Baby will arrive around the date of his next birthday so asked him how he feels celebrating in the labour ward!
