    Default When do i tell hubby?

    I found out last week that im pregnant, have had a GP appointment and had bloods done yesterday. Hubby doesnt get home til the 20th of july.....Do i tell him now or wait till he gets home in 3 weeks? Part of me really want to tell him now, but another part of me wants to see his reaction in person....Anyone else had to wait to tell their partner?

    I would personally wait the 3 weeks seeing his face in person will be a treasured memory forever!

    We could Skype all thought the connection up there isnt always the best and not sure if its the same....Its our first baby, and sort of always wanted to do something special to surprise him with it. But in saying that, 3 weeks is such a long time

    I fantasised about all the creative ways I would tell my DH we were pregnant. The day I got a positive urine test he rang me at work and I couldn't help but spill my guts! Was still exciting

    If I were hubby I would be upset you'd kept it from me for three weeks... But that's just me.
    Such a yukky situation, I wish you could just tell him in person now!!!

    It's definitely something that's hard to keep to yourself, and 3 weeks will seem like an insane long wait... But its such a special piece of news, I would totally wait till he got home, you'll want to see his face, he'll want to cuddle you, I reckon wait out the 3 weeks

    maybe send him a congratulations your going to be a daddy type card with a pic of the pos+ pregnancy test in it, i think waiting the 3 weeks is kind of mean- you know and so should he- itd give him something to look forward to when coming home!
