For our first, we were TTC for just 2 months and we went out for dinner the night before and picked up a test on the way home. I was planning on taking it in the morning, well I couldn't wait and snuck into the bathroom at 5am. Took it and it went positive almost right away. I went back to bed, and put the test on my night stand beside me. I was freaking out excited inside but DH was asleep. I laid in bed and he put his arm over me and I gripped his arm really tight with my ice cold hands, lol. He asked if everything was ok. So I asked if he wanted to see something, I turned on the lamp and showed him. We had never looked at a pregnancy test before so he said "what does this mean?" haha, and when I told him it meant we were having a baby he was pretty happy. We couldn't go back to sleep!



This time, DH was working 5 hours away for 2 weeks on course. I found out on the Tuesday and he wasn't coming home until Friday. I didn't want to tell him over the phone so I had time to think about it. I got a newborn onesie and painted "Baby (our last name) Coming February 2014" ... Put it in a gift bag and had it on the coffee table in the living room. I had told him over the phone that I had a surprise for him when he got home. We had been TTC for just under 2 years so he wasn't expecting it. He came home and he opened it and just stared at it, he was so shocked. First he asked me if I was serious, was I really pregnant. Once we got over the shock, he was very happy. I think he may have shed a tear or two. It was really nice.

Quoting ρiηkie ρie:" I didn't do anything cute with any of my kids. :oops: With DD I shoved a still wet pregnancy test in ... [snip!] ... when I found out. I'm over it and excited now but I was gutted then. Maybe do a Redskins onesie? You could make it yourself. "

That sounds like my reaction to my third. We weren't ttc at all and even though I pretty much knew I had to be pregnant, I was in denial. I showed the test to my DH, tears bursting out of my eyes. I felt so terrible for my reaction. I kept shaking the test going, "No, no, no!!!! It can't be right! Erase!" Lol.

I am going to order this baby hat:

(Since my husband is in the army) and have them make an extra us army name tape in pink to put with it just in case it ends up being a girl when it's born, and place it in a box with a congratulations card and a photo of my girls in big sister shirts together, then a pic of the positive test, and if I have one by the time I see him again, I would put an ultrasound picture in there too and give it to him as a present.

Yeah, I knew I was pregnant before I tested too but when I found out I really was Idk, I just lost it. SO didn't say a word, he heard me crying and just leaned against the door. I wasn't ready to be pregnant again at all and we were using condoms religiously too so it was an even bigger shock. I took more pregnancy tests with this baby than any of my other kids because I was so in denial about it. Even posted a really unneeded line spotter thread on here after the first test half hoping someone would say it was an evap or something. :oops: I feel bad about how I reacted now too but it is what it is.

Yeah you can't really go back and do things differently now. My biggest fear was that I was afraid I would feel so disconnected with the pregnancy and the baby afterwards and I would feel horrible because I felt like I loved and wanted my first two and didn't want my third. But after I got over the initial shock of being pregnant and saw the tons of support from my family and friends, I was okay and just figured that she was meant to happen regardless of the situation. I was on BC and it was kinda my fault looking back. I had a couple glasses of wine one night on our anniversary weekend, forgetting about the effects of alcohol on BC and ended up conceiving. I am extremely fertile....I could probably do everything in my power to keep from ttc and I would get pregnant. Lol. Hence why this time, my tubes are being tied for sure. But today with her being almost 2, she is just as much a part of my heart as my other two and I wouldn't change having her for anything in the world! :)
