For all of us, it is a different experience. Did anyone cry? Was your partner there with you when you found out?

  • First i found out in er of hospital and he come there. Second my daughter gave him pregnancy test as a gift

  • My partner was always with me when we got pregnancy confirmation

  • My hubby was about to ask holiday to his boss saying that we were planning going to Hawai… It was when I called him and told to cancel the trip because I was pregnant.
    We didn’t go to Hawai as planned but now we have plans to go and take bub with us. <3

  • For my second we were trying and i suspected i was as my period was late but for my first pregnancy a test didn’t show up until i was 8 weeks so i said to him no lets wait as it probably won’t show up this soon but he said no i think you should do one so he got me one i used it and he stood near the toilet as i passed him the test with two lines he said i told you so! Lol i couldn’t believe it! i just hugged him and we were both so happy :)

  • After being poked, prodded and counted we were on the doorstep of IVF treatment after 18 months, when I decided to throw in the towel to it all.

    I figured out i might have become pregnant and had a blood test done.
    I got the call from my GP confining I was.

    I was meeting my husband up the shops and I saw him coming and ducked into a book store and found the ‘how to be a dad’ books and when he came in I asked him which book he would choose. Took a min or two, but when he figured it out we were both in tears in the middle of the shop.

    We have now got 3 children all conceived naturally, just goes to show not all drs have it right and stress while trying to conceive don’t mix.

  • I know an expectant Mum who gave her husband a book titled “How to be a Dad”.

  • I found out i was pregnant on Valentine’s Day and told him the same day, i put the pregnancy stick inside a jewelry box and gave it to him when he came home from work – such a sweet memory for us :)

  • I screamed it into the phone

  • I sent him a photo of my pregnancy test stick.. He was at work.

  • I know a lady who found out only a few days before Father’s Day. Father’s Day she gave him a book “Being a Father”.

  • I cried so much from joy, then told hubby straight away

  • I put a pair of booties on his pillow. He thought the whole pregnancy test thing was a bit gross so this was my way of telling him.

  • we had recently seperated, so it was a scary situation, I took him to the beach for a walk and got fish and chips, i told him so he couldnt lose it in public and kill me lol only joking he wouldnt kill me but it was scary considering our circumstances. we are still together with a second now, and all is good.

  • Ptr was here, no crying, planned pregnancy but still reality hits when you realise it’s happening and for us it was like a quietly happy but holding our breaths until after the 12wk mark

  • I did the test at home before he got home from work and did it again just to make sure! I just stood at the front door when I heard him come home holding the pregnancy test and we both cried.
