I told my husband with a present, he opened it up and it was some booties. He was ecstatic! Excited! What did you end up doing? Or saying?

  • No surprise for hubby, he was there with me when I found out. I rang my mum who told my dad and hubby rang his mum

  • My situation was similar to MoM81879.

  • Rather boringly, we just said “I’m pregnant…”

  • Partner – walked out with pregnancy test in hand… big smile and big hugs
    Parents – cowboy boots in a box to open…
    Everyone else – photo on facebook with my cat and dog declaring they were getting a human

  • i love the idea about filming it. i just told hubby that we might need to test and so we both were handling it lol

  • Hubby was with me at both confirmations, so no need to tell him. I then rang and told my mum, who told the rest of the family. Hubby told his mum with the same result. No clever little thingys for us

  • My sister last year about November gave a list to everyone when we were having family dinner night at mum and dads house and said I have an early Christmas present list and it had baby items written on it. We were like what you don’t need these… then we realised that actually she does, she’s pregnant!

  • OOOHHHH! REMYMUMMA! That’s fantastic!! You had such a great idea!!

  • Telling my partner was a bit crap (he’d come home from a rare night out and I told him while he was tipsy)
    Telling our families was fantastic though- I told them to sit around the table and I would get a nice photo, instead I was filming and instead of saying “say cheese” I said “I’m pregnant”.
    Their reactions were fantastic and I got it on film!

  • Also, your idea was very sweet and congrats too! :)

  • Vomiting made it impossible to keep secret! ;)

  • Nice! We heard it on the phone together. I had an IVF so it was different from other people. The nurse was going to phone me at 1 pm so tell me the result. My husband came home from work so we could answer the phone together. We learned it at the same time!
