Who Was the First Person You Told You Were Pregnant?

The EPT commercials make it look so easy. Woman pees on stick, runs out of bathroom and jumps into the arms of her loverboy. But that's not always how the deal goes down. The dad-to-be may be at work, at the gym or traveling when the woman sees the two pink lines that will forever change her life. While many newly discovered pregnant ladies share their expectant news with their procreating partner before anyone else, some can't handle the pressure of waiting and ring up their moms, sisters, or best friends before breaking the news to the newly minted dad. So tell mommy, who was the first to hear of your baby news?

I handed the test to my husband and said, "What do you see here?" I wasn't sure if there was a line or not. After that, I told my paramedic partner. I was working on an ambulance at the time, and he was curious as to why I had to go pee every 10 minutes.

Usually my husband first, but with the 3rd pregnancy, I was on a weight loss chat board as I found out I was pg (at work - I took the test - I didn't think I really was...). So I was writing it on the board real-time, like "I'm pregnant. Calling husband. No answer." Then 10 mins. later "He's calling me back!" It was still exciting, but by number 3, it wasn't as big of a deal - we only talked for like 1 minute and he had to get back to work. Me too.

My husband was the first to find out We planned for him to be at home the morning I took my test because he was so excited and couldn't wait to find out. My mom was the second person we told.

Always hubby. Every test I took, he was at home so he was always the first to know.

I'm with Beaner -- hubs was right next to me while we were waiting for the test results! It wouldn't feel right to do it without him. My brother was the next person to know, and he was sworn to secrecy until we broke the news to the rest of the family a few weeks later.

I wouldn't take the test without my hubby, so he'd know first. Then my mom and dad.

I told my girlfriend down the street bc I needed to know that someone else saw the little line on the test! haha My husband came home around 6 and I told him then. I did not tell the parents until a couple days later when my husband MADE me. LOL.
