"I'm pregnant!"

accreditation
Finding out that you're pregnant is one of the most exciting and happy times in a couple's life. And sharing the news can be really fun. We asked our Facebook fans how they told their husbands that they were expecting and this is what they had to say:

Told him that I have 2 stripes and he did not know what that meant at the time..... he was on the golf coarse and apperantly screamed out of his lungs that he is going to be a daddy after I told him what it meant - Karin Barnard La Grange

When I found out I was pregnant with my second, my husband was away for work. He is a submariner in the navy mad was actually sailing. So I called the hq and told them to send an urgent signal for him to call me. I waited three days before they eventually surfaced the submarine and I got a very worried phonecall. when I told him, he was so excited!!! - Nicole Rothman Dickinson

I was coming home from a night shift, it was 1st of Sept. I woke him with a cheery "Happy Spring Day!" and gave him the test thingy and said "oh, and Happy Father's Day!" - Sankie Botha Oosthuizen

When I found out it was on his bday nd I jst told him happi bday ur present will arrive in 9mnths, nd he was so xcitd that he left wrk 4 da day. -
Bronwyn Celeste Willis

I put the test, blood results and a little white baby grow in a gift box and left it on his side of the bed. He almost fainted when he opened it. I still have the box with the results and put all by little girl's memories in the box. Will give it to her on her 21st bday! - Sanette Loots van Rensburg

We had a fight about something so I told him 'by the way I'm pregnant'. - Marli Clur

See what the rest of them had to say on our Facebook page.
