How to tell your beloved about pregnancy? Future mothers, whose stories we collected, tried to make this moment unique and memorable. And they were rewarded for their efforts with the sincere joy of their loved ones. True, not always ... In any case, the men mentioned here have already passed the test and now honorably bear the title of caring fathers!

So, women reported their pregnancy ...

... creatively

... "I compiled a simple crossword puzzle, hiding in it the phrase" We are waiting for the child. " And slipped her husband after dinner - here, they say, look, it's such a fun game. When he solved the riddle and raised his head, I saw his shining eyes - it was wonderful! "

... "We really wanted a child, and I was sure that my husband will be in seventh heaven with happiness. But I wanted to make a real surprise! I rolled a roll of paper towels around the house and arranged prizes on this path: a beer can, a piece of cake, a chocolate bar. My husband, when he returned from work, went on the instructions I wrote. The main action began in the bedroom - I put a cap on my bed, booties and my pregnancy test, and she hid myself in the closet with a video camera ready. Oh, you should have seen his face! The resulting "film" we can now review a hundred times - and the son, when he grows up, we will definitely show! "

... "I came up with and ordered a special T-shirt for my daughter - now the eldest, and then the only one. Ahead of them, there were two of our photos: mine and husband. On the back - a photo of a daughter and a picture of a stork. And on the stork's neck was a sign: "Delivery - at the end of February" (a date I was called by doctors). On the weekend, the three of us were going to a restaurant. When we already came and ordered dishes, I went with my daughter to the toilet and changed her into this T-shirt. The husband was very moved - he was ready to burst into tears of emotion! "

... in writing

... "My husband is a programmer, so he often reads technical instructions for new programs. I sent him a funny email entitled "A Handbook on How to Make Children." For Dummies". On the first page it was written: "You need a sperm, you need an egg ..." and so on. And on the last page: "In September, you will become a dad!" Beloved several minutes to think before answering, but then he guessed - and was very happy. "

... "I wrote on a beautiful postcard a text, as they write in special newspaper headlines:" May 2011. Family Ivanov is happy to announce the birth of a second child "- and put it in the mailbox. When my husband returned from work with the mail in his hands, he was very surprised: "Oh, did you write this to me?" He had to reread my message twice to understand what it was about. "

... "Upon learning of the third pregnancy, I bought 2 postcards, on which she wrote:" Suitable for a boy "and" Suitable for a girl ". On each of them there is a list of names for the child. I put the postcards on the kitchen table. That evening my husband came late, I was almost asleep. When he found the cards, he immediately rushed to the bedroom to get confirmation that this was not a joke.

... promptly

... "It was early in the morning. I made a test - and immediately woke my husband. He always wakes up heavily: grumbling, angry. So it was this time, but I was not embarrassed, but continued to push it. On the phrase "Stop cussing, what example you are giving to our future child!" The husband finally opened his eyes and, smiling broadly, asked: "Are you pregnant ?!" I first saw his smile at the moment of awakening! "

... "I sent my favorite SMS: how does it relate to what will soon become a dad? The future father immediately called back: it turns out, he guessed for several days, but all waited until I myself confess! "

... "I photographed my pregnancy test and sent him MMS on the phone. He immediately called back. "

... "When my husband returned in the evening, I asked if he would be free in the first half of September (and the case was in January). Of course, he was very surprised. Then I pulled out a positive pregnancy test and showed it to him. "

... unequivocally

... "In the morning, going to work, dropped it, as if by accident, on the verge:" Look at the coffee table surprise for you "- there was my pregnancy test. In the evening a huge bouquet and a happy husband were waiting for me at home. "

... "Upon learning of the pregnancy, I ran and bought two baby blouses - pink and blue. When my husband came home from work, I waved them in front of him: "Well, dear, are you ready for adventure?" He was ready! "

... "I put the book" Meaning of your child's name "on the table and a note next:" The answer is on May 25 next year. We have time to think! "And we really then read the whole book for two voices, although the name was chosen almost immediately."


... "In the evening, as soon as my husband entered the house, I handed him a small box, specifying that this addition to the gift for our wedding anniversary - she was a week before. He pulled out the test and a couple of tiny shoes. He cried: "What, are you pregnant?" - and tears glistened in his eyes. But these were not tears of joy at all, because then the husband collapsed on the couch with the words: "Now that's it!" It turned out that he had just broken the car and in the morning he had quarreled with the boss. "

... "I bought a couple of pins, took my test and wrapped it all in a gift paper. Liked asked, in honor of which holiday gift. I answered: "In honor of the fact that you are the best!" He smiled rather, opened the package ... and shouted: "But this is not my size!" We are now laughing at the whole family with this story, and the husband makes excuses: "I had emotional shock! "

... "On that day, my husband was going to replace the car kit with a new one. I bought it myself the day before - and put a pacifier here with the inscription: "I love my dad." And another sticker on the rear window: "The child in the car." Leaving the house, the husband opened a first aid kit to check whether everything is in place. When he saw the pacifier, he was dumbfounded! Then he understood everything and began to kiss me - but how long those waiting minutes seemed to me! "

Expert opinion:

"For a man, the future of paternity is a huge event, so it's no surprise that he can experience an emotional shock. Do not be upset because of the first reaction to the pregnancy report, if it was not as joyful as you would like, "says psychologist Svetlana Chizhova. Quite possibly, years later both of you will laugh with a laugh as the face of the future pope stretched after you confessed.

Some men after such news leave themselves, without showing any special emotions. It depends on the temperament: if the husband by nature introvert, do not wait for stormy kisses and embraces, but also do not doubt his willingness to become a father - just a person needs to "discuss everything with himself", ponder. In the end, a normal man understands how much your life will change and how much personally he will need to do. "Those who are too dumbfounded, you can advise ... hiding," said the psychologist. "Do not hide your head in the sand and do not pretend that nothing much has happened at all, but give yourself time to digest what has happened - and gradually get used to the new reality."
