Telling Husband!

I never planned how I would tell my husband if I were to get pregnant. I didn't want to get too far ahead of myself.  Almost as if I would jinx myself.  So as I sat at work that day (very long day) I schemed up how I would give him the news.  I decided I would wrap up the positive test in a huge box wrapped with Christmas paper and say “Your last Christmas present finally came in” since it was only a week and a half past Christmas. He wouldn't be expecting it; he did not know I would be testing and so early. So that's what I did!

Sorry if you're tired of seeing my pee stick. :)

I left it on the living room floor. He came home from work extra late that night and it was killing me not to shout it out when he walked in.  But I played it smooth.  He walked by the wrapped gift and said “what's this?” and I gave him the line “your last Christmas present finally came in”.  He didn't open it right away- he proceeded to unpack from work and get his dinner out. Seriously? Couldn't he just rip it open already?!  Even though I was so excited, I was also so ready for bed (one of my earliest and worst symptoms- exhaustion) so I  asked if he wanted to open his present.  He said yes, pondered around another minute, and finally started unwrapping.  My heart started racing.  He opened the big box and picked through the tons of green and red tissue paper inside and then... “WOW! … you're pregnant?!” I looked into his eyes, wide open with excited, and exclaimed “YES!  …You're going to be a Daddy!”  We hugged and kissed then talked for hours about anything and everything pregnancy and baby related before I fell asleep. It was such a great day, and such a perfect moment.  I'll never forget any of it.

Oh so cute! New follow- just reading through some of your old posts! I had the same pee stick (is it weird to tell you that?), we had been trying for two years so I wanted it to be really exciting, but by the time hubby saw the stick the digital words had shut off- stupid digital tests! haha, glad that didn't happen to you!

I'm always so jealous of people who are patient! I called mine from the DD bathroom where I impatiently peed on a stick! lol
