Sharing Your Pregnancy News With Your Partner

Baby Bump: Celebrating the Baby News With Your Partner

There are some milestones in that nearly every woman romanticizes — the first kiss, high school graduation, being swept off her feet by a marriage proposal, and losing her virginity on a bed of roses. Then, there's telling her partner she's pregnant with their first child.

To find out how I told my hubby our news,


I always thought I would be creative while announcing the news. Maybe I'd buy a doll or give him a card so I could watch his expression. But instead, I grabbed my honey just before he ran out the door for work and told him, "I think it worked!" Baffled, he said, "What worked?" to which I replied, "I think I'm pregnant!"

He grabbed me and we literally jumped up and down until I became nervous that we would shake the baby loose. Far different from what I had envisioned, the moment was more meaningful than I could have imagined.

How did you tell your partner you were pregnant?
