Breaking it to Hubs?

So I could be wrong, but... I think I'm pregnant and trying to figure out how to break it to my husband if I'm right (obviously I will wait until I see a BFP before telling him!).

No real advice, but I've been there. My first daughter was a surprise, so breaking it to my husband was a tad nerve racking.

Good luck to you, and I'm sure he will come around, even if at first he is stressed.

ur babies are close in age! my boys are 17 months apart. one at 2 and a half and the other just turned 1. Maybe when you guys are alone at night and talking grab his hand and put it on ur tummy and tell him your gonna be a daddy again :)

Wait until he's in a good mood that's my best advice :( He will come around though. This is #4 for us and I was on the pill, so my Hubby was asking Siri were the nearest bridge was! He did not talk to me for the entire day that he found out. As time went on I felt like I had the plague he distanced himself from me so much especially bc I was excited. I am from the Aug. board just ease dropping LOL. Anyway, he's not exactly jumping for joy yet, but I've caught him looking at names, he's rub my belly a few times, and asks about my appointments. He came around and is affectionate with me again. Just remember its not you, its just a shock for him. Everyone reacts differently especially men. Talk to the women on the boards until he comes around. That's what I did & still do. He'd be looking for a bridge again if I mentioned buying anything yet LOL!!

It is a handful but I love it. Really makes the stressful times worth it when I see them play together.
