i just got my BFP this morning, was at home alone as husband on days shift, so i will be at home in about an hour. Any ideas on how i can break the news nicely so that he doesnt scream & faint with the shock??!! x

Maybe just put the test somewhere where you know he will go like to get some clothes, or in the bathroom, or by his cup. Let us know his reaction

Hiya Hun - Congratulations xx

So tell us all how you broke the news then? I had a lovely little scene all planned out - that went out the window when I got my BFP. I sort of went "Wayne, can you come here?" He did and I held out the test "Crikey" was the response - we were in shock after 11 months of trying Laughing

Hope you have a H & H 9 months, cheers, C xx

hi ladies, thanks for ur advice. well it went good actually! like an idiot i actually left the empty box on the bathroom side - by accident i did forget to move it, but i had moved the stick out of sight. so when i got home he had kind of guessed it, knew that i had tested so then just asked 'are you pregnant then?' so i just answered YES!!!!! he was in shock for few mins, could see his eyes gone wide so had a few mins being scared that he was gonna run a mile Confused , but i know he is happy, he even told his parents straightaway last night, im telling mine tonight. i could do with some more advice ladies if you can answer.... loads of you on here say that when u get BFP you seem to get in to GP straightaway & some ladies have had a scan date booked already. i rang my GP yesterday & was just told to wait for a call back from midwife. from what my mother in law tells me this can be anything up to 2 maybe 3 weeks later it is not straightaway. Is this right? thanks in advance. x

Hiya Fuzzy

I went to see my GP and she did a urine test (which was sent away to be tested) and she ran through any medication or illnesses that I had (none).

Once the result of the urine test was back, I was asked to make another appointment to go in and see the GP again - I think this is where I am referred to the midwife.

Good luck - how far on are you?

Cheers, C xx
