How shold I announce my pregnancy to my husband?

I am a mom of 3. I have my youngest is 1 year old. I have antibody small c when pregnant. But I know all about it and it’s somewhat complicated when baby is born but there are doctors to help. My question is my husband doesn’t seems ready to have number 4. But I found out today that I am pregnant. How can I tell or break the news to him? We used contraceptives but have had accidents. I know… Can you give me ideas how to tell my husband? Thank you ladies!

Just tell him. You didn’t get pregnant by yourself.

He helped making this baby if he didn’t want anymore then snip it or put a cap on.

Make it fun, but he should be excited either way

Just tell him. Either way his reaction is going to be the same. You didn’t make this baby alone

I believe it should have been discussed before conception

Tell him over a romantic dinner or tell him why he is playing video games

You could always make fun out of it. You could put buns in the oven and see if he can guess bun in the oven. That would be funny cute

Straight up tell him. There’s no point in beating around the bushes about it.

I had my first with my boyfriend and he already had 3 and was dead set on not having anymore and keeping his only girl the baby. Fast forward to a year later … I get pregnant, I was scared to tell him and when I did he was mad. I understood how freaked out he must have been to think of baby #4. Gave him his space and a few hours later he came around, and was even more excited after hearing the heartbeat. Just rip the band aid, if he’s not excited… he will be, it’s his child. :two_hearts: good luck!

Just tell him? You’re married. He helped make it, just tell him. There doesn’t have to be a special way to break the news to the other person who helped make the baby.

Were these children planned? If not why have one of you not had a procedure to stop the “Accidents “

You shouldn’t be scared HE’S the one who got you pregnant in the first place. He’s the one who made it happen. Not you. If he didnt want anymore then HE should’ve been more careful or had a vasectomy. :woman_shrugging:t2:

I’d just tell him… :woman_shrugging:t2:

Get the other kids taken care of. While he is playing video games do the get naked in front of him challenge. Have sex. Tell him while having cuddle time.
