hi all, I got my BFP last Sunday, DP works away and I was expecting him home today so have waited to tell him as wanted to tell him face to face as I think he may be a bit overwhelmed (had mc last month and we were waiting a bit to try again! Im very happy tho!)!! He is now not going to be home and earliest I will see him is next Fri/Sat!! Should I wait? I will be 6 weeks next Sat and then be past the stage I mc at last time, if that makes any difference! I'm torn between not wanting to keep it from him but wanting to be with him when I do!! Any advice appreciated!

I suggest ringing and telling him, put the shoe on the other foot and think about how you'd feel if he hadnt told you.
Congrats on the pregnancy smile

why don't u tell him you think you may be and judge by his reaction? if he says i'll bring a test home with me wait if he says run out and buy a test this min tell him!

I'd definitely tell him now. He'd want to know, and he'd be gutted if you did m/c without him have knowing. I can understand that you want to tell hime face-to-face, but you're in this together. Good luck!

I really wanted to tell my DH face to face, but it turned out he was away when I found out and I just couldn't keep it to myself!! I just made sure I had another test to show him when he got back smile
