I can still remember it like it was yesterday, the day I told the Husband that I was pregnant with our first child. We had been trying for a few months and had a few losses, but this pregnancy instantly felt different.
I was so excited to share the news with him over 7 years ago. I was working when I took the pregnancy test and when I arrived home, he was asleep (I worked overnight shifts somewhere) so I had to wait until he woke up.
His reaction was perfect! He had the biggest smile, hugged me and told me he loved me. I remember it to this day and I have a feeling many women have this moment stick in their brain forever. While the spontaneity is likely out of the question this time around if we get pregnant and I tell him the news (since we’ve been trying for a while and now need to use fertility drugs), but nonetheless, I am sure he will react perfectly again.
While I was happy with the way that my husband responded to the news, there are some who have a partner who perhaps had a less-than-ideal reaction to the double pink lines.
