How did you break the news?
I'm curious to see who has the most creative, funny, exciting ways that you told your SO that you are pregnant!
Me and my husband's wasn't funny, lol...we were terrified and I cried. The way we told my mom/step-dad/step-gramma was funny, though. We kinda just sat there when my mom asked what we'd been up to, and my husband just blurts out, "Turning you into a grandma!"
Meee tooo! I came downstairs from taking the test, and I was literally shaking. I'd never had one turn out positive before. I said some expletive to my husband, and then we got happy.
LOL, so much for easing into it! I bet she was thrilled, though.
With my youngest son, his father had gone away for work and while he was gone i took a pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant, well i took a pic of me with the test and went and printed it out by the weekend he was going to be home. It wasnt something i wanted to tell him over the phone,. So i had a little surprise date night planned for him so my mom was so nice to help watch my other two children while we went to a movie , Fast and The Furious 6 we are both a real big fan of it, and dinner. well why we were at dinner i had a cake brought in that said "congratulations daddy" he looked at me confused and i told him to open his card and read it because it will explain, it was a simple card just telling him how much i loved him then to look in the envelope, and inside was the picture, i wasn't sure how he would react because it was definitely not expected being a new couple. He looked up at me with tears in his eyes and said he was the happiest man on the planet. We were both terrified of a lot, of course wasn't our first time being parents from previous relationships. but our first together and it was an amazing moment.
Now, for the first time i was pregnant I was only 17, and i was about to graduate from high school, and my friend was asking me because i started being sick every morning so, she told me maybe i should take a pregnancy test. so one day after school i did, well my mom was in the bathroom a few hours later. i was terrified on how to tell her but, i didnt have an option i had to. so i walked into the bathroom shut the door behind me and told her mom i have something to tell you, she looked at me and goes "your not graduating?" and i was stunned and was a little offended so i kinda laughed and said, "what?, mom why would you say that" she said " well you have this look on your face like your gonna throw...." and then said "oh no, are you pregnant" so at least i didnt have to say the words.... it was one of the most terrifying moments ever but, looking back on it now, we both laugh hysterically, great conversation starter "the time my daughter barged in on me in the bath room and shut the door behind her....."
I tried a couple of different ways, but not so creative. I was usually too excited to think of a new way and if I suspected I was pregnant I told him. I've wrapped up a pregnancy test and I have left them on the bathroom counter to discover. That's all I've really done, I think.
