I was wondering how you told your partner you were pregnant and how they took the news.

Me and my now husband had been together 3 months and i found out i was pregnant with our first son. Nate was so happy when i told him, he hugged me tight and then put his hand on my belley. We couldn't believe that there was a little miracle growing inside me. I had a little trouble during the pregnancy, but on september the 1st 2007 our first son was born. He was a week over due.



Then when i found out i was pregnant with the twins i told him that we were going to have another baby, at the time we didn't know it was twins. But i had a lot of trouble at first and we ended up going to the ER because i was having sever pain. They gave me a pain reliever and they had me go to my OB the next day. I had an ultra sound and my OB sent me to another OB-GYN I was told that i had a miscarriage and had to have surgery. We had the surgery that day and the doctor that i was sent to found out that what we thought was a miscarriage was actually a sist the size of a baseball on the back wall of my uterus. I had the surgery and went back to him a week later. He retested my hormone level and i was still pregnant. He done an ultra sound and it only showed one baby then 2 weeks later i had another ultrasound done and found out that i was having twins. I had alot of trouble carrying them. I went from 95lbs to 160 and had the babies 2 months 1 week and 3 days early. They were born at St. Vincent Womens in Indianapolis. They are now over a year old and there older brother is 15 months older. There names are Abigayle and Caleb and there older brother name is Aaron.

Lucas and I had been dating on and off since we were 15. and we had been seeing each other again since Feb 08. May 10th I woke up and I just knew. I called my friend Steph and she just laughed at me. We found out May 24 08. Luke knew because I turned white and fell silent when I came out of the bathroom. he just said "It's positive isnt it?" He was 18 and I was 19 at the time. We've had our issues, but love each other very much, and are planning on getting married within the next year or so.

My hubby knew before I did. At the time I was working nights and it was winter, and I was driving around in an old pickup on unpaved back roads (very bumpy), so my extreme nausea I just put down to the horrible working conditions. We weren't using birth control because we weren't trying to have a baby but we weren't preventing it either, because we both wanted children and figured it will happen when it wants to. He came home with a pregnancy test for me one day and I took it between bouts of nausea (I thought I had the stomach flu) well, it was positive, and I was in shock, he was extatic about it. The second time around was the same thing. I was off the depo shot, because we wanted to have another child and were told it could take a while for the effects to wear off, well, it didn't take long, and the effects wore off, but one day I started feeling sick again and he was laughing saying "you're pregnant. i know it.." I didn't believe him but he whipped out another test and he was right again. We have 2 gorgeous daughters, 16.5 months and 7 weeks old now, and he couldn't be a prouder daddy!

i lost my health insurance when i graduated college and i couldn't afford my $97 a month birth control and there was yet to be a generic of it. i tried going on a few other brands that were much cheaper, but they made me feel like crap. i finally just went off it all together since my boyfriend and i rarely had sex anyway. well, three weeks later we forgot. three weeks after that his little sister told us she was prego. that night he said if that happened to us, he didn't think he'd be ready to be a dad and if that would be ok with me. i already suspected i was prego for over a week already now. i didn't want to be, so i tried to ignore it, but a week later i took a test and it said "pregnant" before i stopped peeing. i told him when he got home that his sister wasn't the only one. we were supposed to talk about it that weekend, but instead he decided to start telling people without letting me know. i was rather pissed. he also decided we were getting married two weeks later at the justice of the peace (he had just gotten a job with benefits). i had started puking 12 hours a day by then, so i really didn't care what was going on at the time. i did refuse to marry him at the jp, about 5 minutes before we were supposed to get married, because he invited people and i told him if we were going to do it that way, no one was allowed to be there, not even our moms. he didn't understand how embarrassing it was for me, he kept telling me that no one cares. he finally understood how i felt after he had to go tell his entire family as well as mine and the judge that we weren't getting married and people took the day off from work for nothing. who gets married at 3 on a Thursday anyway. we did get married two weeks later on the dock at his mom's condo, after we had a nice long talk about how i felt pressured by him into staying pregnant. i did stay pregnant and now we have our almost 13 month old Bella. i wouldn't trade her for anything, but how we got here was a bit rocky.

With our first son I found out I was pregnant two months before my high school graduation and my husband (boyfriend at the time) was in college and I called him and told him I was pregnant. He was scared but excited we married before I started college and had my son after my first semester of college. Three years later we were almost done with college and my husband decided he wanted another baby. So we were trying for a baby after a few months of negatives we stopped worrying about it and than I found out I was pregnant. I took a test one day it was positive left it there and went to work. He picked me up that day and I asked if he had gone home and he said yes and smiled. He was really happy.

When i found out about my first pregnancy i was at work and decided to take the test. The test came back positive, i was so excited because we tried forever to get pregnant. I couldnt wait to tell him, so i left work to tell him. When i told him we were both so happy we started crying. My second pregnancy was a little different because we were having a lot of issues at the time. So we were not real excited. I actually cried because i was sad. Wyatt was not a planned pregnancy. But he just told me we will get through it, and we will be fine. And we were, and now i have my wyatt.

Just like Krystal, he knew before I knew!

Tim is deployed to Bahrain right now. Every few days he'd call me he and the first thing he'd ask was if I'd got my period. He kept insisting that I needed to take a pregnancy test. We hadn't done anything to prevent pregnancy for two years before this and had we'd never got pregnant, so I thought it was really weird that he was so sure I would be now. It wasn't until my dad started asking if I was pregnant that I finally took the test. To tell Tim I was pregnant all I had to do was email him saying "You were right!" and I got a happy phone call from him the next day. The men in my life must know me pretty well!

my husband knew before i did!

i was really sick one day and he came home from work early and kept saying "you're pregnant, and im like theres no way. i was supposed to start my period that week and it never came, and he said "youre definately pregnant" then, he highly suggested we go get a pregnancy test. and YUP i took two, they were both positive. i was kind of in shock/ denial and didnt really believe it at first... it took about a week for it to become a reality that i was actually pregnant. we told our parents right away, and they were so exited and supportive, i am only 4 months along, and it seems like this little baby cant get here fast enough!

When I told my hubby about our first it was super scary!!! we were only 17 at the time so its not really what you want to drop on a high school boy... But I was so scared to tell him I made him guess lol immature I know but he guessed! haha He just shook his head and said ok I know I am not ready for this but somehow I know we will be ok and just laid his head on my belly. Then he looked up at me and said I hope you know its a boy :) true enough it was a boy. We got married before he was born and have been together ever since. We now have two boys and are very happy.. Oh btw with the second I sent him a picture of the awesome pink plus sign through a text message haha He was at work and I couldn't get a hold of him and I am terrible at waiting. It wasn't really a surprise because we had been trying haha.

I'd been having issues with the pill, so when i went back to my doctor, he did a pregnancy test just to rule that possibilty out. Sure enough it was an instant positive. I quickly rang my partner to tell him the good news. When he answered i asked how he was and he starting complaining about his day at work, after ten minutes (yep i actually let him go on for 10 minutes) i finally interupted him, and said I have something really important to tell you, and he said oh sorry go on, thats when i said you're going to be a daddy, he went quiet, and said are you serious, i said yes and he was speachless (in a good way). When i went for a scan the next day to see how far along i was, the doctor told me i was already 22 weeks!!! So I had even more exciting news to tell the OH, and boy was he excited to learn we only had 4 months left to go!

That is so sweet. We both cried when we found out we were having a second child. the doctor had told us that i would proably have to terminate the second pregnancy, because my hormone level wasn't high enough. so they gave me a shot, and my levels rised and then we found out 2 weeks later that we were having twins and that they were healthy. we were so relieved that they were healthy and i didn't have to terminate it.

Lucky you! I was hoping for twins so I wouldnt ever have to go through pregnancy again.

We had been trying for almost three years so when I randomly took a test and the second line actually appeared I took it to show hubby and we jumped up and down on the bed - He was always going to have kids (unlike me) so he was pretty stoked :)
