    I got pregnant on cycle #3 of trying. For some reason, DH just knew I was pregnant. I was unsure. He wanted to test together this time because we had never done that before. So we tested on 10dpo and the line came up very light but we saw it and he said see, I knew it, He wasn't even surprised. but I kinda was. It was more exciting not planned, but also nice to finally have a planned pregnancy.

    DH didnt' react much. He was really distracted with some homework problem he was having. Oh I think the printer wasn't working or something. So anyway yeah he reaction was kind of a let down. But he's just kind of mellow about stuff like that. I was all worried that something was wrong like usual and he knew we were going to be pregnant soon so I think he just wasn't surprised.

    So I took a digital test at 9 Dpo expecting it to be negative and it said pregnant! We were in the middle of sleep training my son in his big boy bed. So I was up with my screaming boy at 4am and my husband was getting up for work at 4:45 and yes I was still dealing with my screaming toddler. He got up for work and went into the bathroom and saw the test on the bathroom counter where I left it for him to see. I saw him do a double take at it and then he came out smiling and kissed me. He then went to work. And I. Continued to deal with the toddler. Haha

    We were both very surprised since we were not trying! I had just gone off BC and we were using condoms (except that 1 time!) because I was sick and on antibiotics. Guess it really only does take once!

He said if it was positive to just tell him to come in the house (we live on the family farm, 8th generation to live here).

    Yeah, my DH's reaction was not a big "Yay, I'm so happy!" But I think it takes a lot longer to sink in for dads in many cases and as DH said...this is our 5th pregnancy so we've BTDT with the initial +HPT and "I'm pregnant". The other night I asked him if he is excited and he said it really hasn't sunk in yet. I can totally understand that...I'm still really early and only having mild symptoms. I think about it all the time but I can see where it's same ol' same ol' for him right now. I know he'll get excited later on...he always does. I figure the 20 week u/s will get him pretty excited and help it sink in a bit. I'll be showing then and hopefully able to feel some movement. If not I'll know he'll be excited at the birth!

    I had told him a couple days earlier that I was late but I didn't think there was a chance so we didn't think much of it. I didn't tell him that I'd bought a test so the next morning I took it when we woke up and the line came up right away. So I crawled back into bed with him and DD and said "I'm pregnant." And he laughed! Lol. Then he said "well I wondered!" And we both started laughing a lot more and looking at DD telling her she was getting a sibling way sooner than planned.

    DH's reaction was like a "no ****" and "it happened too soon, we didn't get to try enough" type reaction! LOL! I think it's yet to really sink in for him actually!

    I didn't grow up on a farm, but it just feels like where I was meant to be, and it is why i am able to be a stay at home mom right now, I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.

    We farm too, I always get excited to see other young farm families! We do row crops, no animals. They used to have hogs (thank goodness, no more!)
