How do you announce your pregnancy to your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s stressful enough to validate whether or not you are pregnant to yourself, but what makes it real is actually telling your partner. Whether you find this to be an easy or difficult task is absolutely dependent on your relationship, but no matter what, it’s always a momentous experience, so follow these tips to ensure you do it right:

1. Be in good spirits: If you decide to throw a party or whisper it into you guy’s ear in bed, as long as you are both happy with each other, there’s no wrong way to tell him. If you are giving off good vibes and are in a healthy, committed relationship, you can tell him while doing the dishes, and he’ll still be thrilled.

2.Drop some hints: With such exciting news it’s not going to be easy to contain yourself. Talk about what you’re going to do with the extra space in the house or by picking out baby clothes. He’ll get the idea soon enough, but it will be extremely entertaining to watch him figure it out.

3. Do it over dinner: By either taking him out to your go-to spot or cooking him his favorite steak at home, setting the mood is always a vital step for such a crucial announcement. Don’t be too afraid that your significant other may catch onto your gracious effort and just allow the night to be unforgettable, even if you hold the news until dessert.
