Just found out this morning that I'm pregnant. Over the moon. I'm getting married in two weeks. Considering waiting until my wedding day to surprise my partner with the news. WWYD

I wouldn’t keep secret like that from someone I was marrying 🤷🏻‍♀️

crispysausagerolls Sat 14-Dec-19 14:20:46

I would not keep it a secret either.

Sammi38 Sat 14-Dec-19 14:21:22

No, I wouldn’t keep it a secret either.

Do you not think he's going to be hurt rather than overjoyed if he learns you sat on the news for weeks?

Planned "surprises" like that are highly overrated outside of social media. Honesty, intimacy and trust between you are worth a lot more.

I wouldn't keep it a secret either.

I would let him know too.

WhatchaMean Sat 14-Dec-19 14:26:06

Definitely would tell him straightaway. Aside from anything else you don't know how you'll be feeling with morning sickness etc

InDubiousBattle Sat 14-Dec-19 14:26:15

Tell him now. We did the pregnancy tests together, there's no way I would have waited a fortnight to tell him!!

ThatsMySantaHisBeardIsSoFluffy Sat 14-Dec-19 14:27:21

I wouldn't wait two weeks. I found out two days before my wedding and was too excited to even keep it to myself for that long!

PotteringAlong Sat 14-Dec-19 14:27:58

And if you (heaven forbid) miscarry next week, what will you do then?

Tell him. It’s not a secret to keep from the person you are marrying.

ShinyRuby Sat 14-Dec-19 14:30:08

Definitely tell him ASAP & congratulations.

Merename Sat 14-Dec-19 14:31:24

Congratulations! It’s up to you of course, but I’d tell my partner. You may start feeling awful in next two weeks, and if you want to keep it secret from other guests, you’ll probably need his help concealing why you are not drinking. It also is quite a public way to get the news - while I’m sure he’ll be delighted, it’s still a big huge deal that I think is best processed in private.

I would wait!!!

I waited when I found out when I was pregnant so I could tell DH on Christmas Day.

SallyLovesCheese Sat 14-Dec-19 14:36:56

I was so happy to be pregnant I ran downstairs immediately to tell him, waving the pregnancy test. I can't imagine trying to keep such amazing news quiet from him.

carly2803 Sat 14-Dec-19 14:41:40

no, tell him!!

Parker231 Sat 14-Dec-19 14:43:14

I would definitely tell him now - why wait? DH was there when I tested and was excited as I was.

amusedbush Sat 14-Dec-19 14:45:15

Tell him! He deserves to share this and be excited with you.

Congratulations flowers

You might not get much time together on your wedding day and if you tell him now you can both be happy about it for longer.

My DH was annoyed I waited a couple of hours to tell him - I only waited as I didn't want to announce it during a trip to the rubbish dump.

Dandelion1993 Sat 14-Dec-19 14:54:05

Not for two weeks.

If it was only two days I'd say yes

Betterbegoing Sat 14-Dec-19 14:55:19

I wouldn’t keep a secret that huge from my fiancé.

Floopyandtired Sat 14-Dec-19 14:55:29

I would tell him too, but I had a friend who waited 3 days to tell her DH on his birthday and he was over the moon, said it was the best gift ever. But two weeks and a wedding day is a whole different kettle of fish!

EmmiJay Sat 14-Dec-19 14:56:01

I'd tell him the morning of the wedding. Send a little card/gift from the baby. Gahhh! How exciting! Congratulations!

misspiggy19 Sat 14-Dec-19 14:57:28

I would tell him day after the wedding

Jupiters Sat 14-Dec-19 14:58:51

Two weeks is too long to wait. Tell him now.
