Telling Your Partner
I just found out I’m pregnant! I’d like to do something special to tell my husband. What did you do?
Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: When I found out I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, my husband and I were living in New York City. We were going out to dinner that night to celebrate his birthday. I put the ultrasound photo into a frame that said “Daddy and Me,” and I hid it in my purse.
When my husband asked if I wanted to order wine, I said, “I think you should open your last present first.” He knew what it was right away, and he ordered a martini and I got iced tea.
