I love hearing stories about how people told their husband or friends that they were expecting. How did you tell yours?
With Drew I was too excited and told Chris I was taking a test. The line was faint and I came busting out of the bathroom like it was on fire. He said, "God, are you sure?"
With William, Chris was gone on a swiftwater rescue assignment and he didn't return until 4 days after I'd found out. I didn't want to tell him on the phone so when he got home that night I told him I had something important I wanted to tell him. He said, "You're not pregnant are you?" That was super romantic. Drew was only 10 months old so I understood it but it still made him an ass.
With Lauren I got pregnant so quickly that we were both stunned. He was upstairs giving both kids a bath (Drew was 3 and William was 1 and a half) and I said, "Guess what?" Chris said, "You better not tell me your pregnant already." I said, "No, actually I was going to say we need a bigger washing machine and dryer. Oh, yeah. 'Cause I'M PREGNANT, Mr. Romance."
Please don't think he's an ass. Only I'm allowed to think that.
I almost want to have a 4th just so I can get the reaction I have always dreamed of but I can tell you without a doubt that if I announced a 4th pregnancy I absolutely would not get the reaction I have always dreamed of.
Anyway, how did you tell your loved ones?
Need some creative ideas? I saw this blog and thought it had some great ones. Click here for cute announcement ideas.
ps. You don't have to feel sorry for me by having Chris ruin every pregnancy announcement. He has since made up for it by being the best daddy on the entire planet.
