How did everyone elses partners react???
It was a bit of a shock for him. I had about two weeks of morning sickness before we decided to take a test (i happened to get a bad dose of the flu only a day or two before my morning sickness, so we initially thought it was just a baaaad flu).
I had more of an inkling than him, because once it entered my head, all the symptoms lined up. But for him he didn't get to think out all the internal things.
He actually got grumpy for the first day, that I hadn't realised I'd missed a period. But I'd put it down to my cycle being off kilter from coming off the pill. All of a sudden, a few months before I fell pregnant, my body reacted to the pill and acted like I was preg. My doc was actually convinced I was pregnant then, and had me do a blood test when the pee stick came back negative. Which was another reason I realised I was probably pregnant, because I felt the exact same as before I stopped the pill.
We've told family but its kind of gotten round to a bit of extended family too. And I'll tell my close friends I think, becuase if something did happen it will be nice to have the support.
I did it the other way around- told my friends before my family, LOL! I was scared to tell my Mum.
But I told my close friends as soon as we found out at 8 weeks, because I wanted the support if the pregnancy went wrong.
One of my friends tried to get angry at me for not waiting til 12 weeks, and I said "What, so you'd rather me grieve the death of my unborn child on my own?" That shut them up.
