How did you all tell your significant others?

This is not helpful but it is still a little humorous. I think that is the sort of answers to tell to the man you were dating not a husband though. Usually when people are married they plan or at least speak of these sorts of things so it wouldn't be bad news to them. Only the girl you had a one night stand with....

The first time I just handed him the stick (pregnancy indicator) thinking he'd know what it meant. Then I stood there waiting for a response while he squinted at it trying to figure out what it was... about 2 long minutes later he figured it out! The second time I told him while he was making dinner... back when he still made dinner! I just told him "guess what I found out today?" he still gives me a hard time for not finding a more fun way of telling him. I was never patient enough to think of a clever way of sharing the news.

When I find out about my pregnancy, I asked my hubby about being a daddy since his oldest and youngest already had children. He love them very much. He said yeah it will be good. So I told him that he will be daddy in less than 9 months. He got excited.

you can always buy him a shirt that says best dad, and give it to him, or a picture frame that says dad and me on it. You can get him basically anything that he would ilke that says dad, and it should get him more excited. Everyone is nervous at first.. i know i was.. but you get over it, and he will too

Well my husband found out right way, but when I found out it was a boy.. I went to the store and bought a little baby boy infant pajamas, and got a little card to attach to it, and gave it to my husband as a gift.

My husband knew when I thought I MIGHT be pregnant. He was with me at the store on the day I bought the pregnancy test. And I told him the result seconds after reading it.

Yes, tell him immediately, but wait a few weeks to tell everyone else until you know you aren't going to miscarry. I thought I was pregnant and took a home test while my ex husband was home. I made him go look at the test. Everyone else we called.

After 9 years of trying, when I found out I was pregnant, I bought a maternity t-shirt and had a t-shirt shop put, "Hooray! I'm finally pregnant" on the shirt. I had the shirt on when my husband came home from work that night. It was priceless! We told his parents by giving them a pair of baby booties with a card attached saying, "In production, coming soon."

If this is a planned pregnancy or even an unplanned one, buy the test kit, then do the test together but make sure you tell him before anyone else. Give yourselves sometime to enjoy the news before telling everyone else because once word gets out, then all the advice starts coming at you from all quarters. :)

Just tell him you have some good news, I'm sure he'll guess. Or you could play a game with him, buy a couple of baby presents and wrap them, have him open them one by one. I'm sure he'll guess what's going on. My husband was very well aware of everytime I thought I was so I'd just tell him.

If you’re both trying, I’d say buy some baby shoe’s tie a ribbon around them and place them on the bed, and wait until it’s bed time. You won’t be sleeping much that night!

No don't tell him about it. You directly hand the baby to him after your delivery. That would be a much bigger surprise I guess!
