No, I am not announcing a 3rd pregnancy to you and telling how I told my husband about #3. Gosh guys, what are you thinking?! We are not ready for that! 🙂
Over on Kelly’s Korner, people are sharing how they told their husband the news of a pregnancy. I thought it would be fun to reminisce the old times and share what I remember!
I hope I don’t cry.
Lucas: 1st Pregnancy:
I took a pregnancy test on Saturday morning, about an hour before I had to go to work. (note to self: never take a pregnancy test before you have to go into work. stupid idea.) I think I had missed a period that week, so I had bought a test earlier in the week “just in case.”
The test was positive.
I remember having so many emotions. I remember sitting on the toilet crying (lid closed. ha.) and thanking God.
I remember FREAKING OUT.
My husband was at work and I had to leave for work soon, so I opened my computer and immediately started journaling all my thoughts and emotions. I didn’t want to forget what I was feeling.
I had to go to work and thankfully, I was sent home early. I waited and waited and waited -which seemed liked forever- till my husband got home.
I’m sorry I don’t have a super creative or cute story to tell you. All I did was hand him the test with a huge smile on my face. He was a mixed of emotions as well. As soon as I told him we called all of our family right away and told them the news!
Best news of my life!!
Joshua: Pregnancy #2:
I don’t even remember why I took a test in the first place. I was breastfeeding Lucas (he was around 10 months old when we found out.) and hadn’t even had a period yet… but for whatever reason, I took a test.
Positive. Holy Crap.
I put this on the fridge, with Lucas’s magnetic letters, for my husband to see when he got home.
To say he was in total shock would be an understatement.
We waited to tell our parents in person because they were coming up to visit – it was a REALLY hard not to tell anyone!- and then as soon as we told them we called everyone else and told them the news!
We sent out a first birthday announcement to our friends, which also announced our pregnancy. Most people knew by then, but it was still fun to make and send a card.
2nd best news of my life!!!
I know those aren’t very creative ways, but that’s what I did! 🙂
Maybe if/when we have a 3rd pregnancy I will do something really awesome.
How did you break the news to your husband??
