Twins/Toddler Tuesday

Twin Tuesday: Shhhhhhh! It’s a Secret.


Secrets. We all have them. It was around this day last year I let out a rather big one. I told hubs I was pregnant.

(No, I didn’t remember that on my own, last year’s calender says “the gig is up”,LOL)

I found out I was pregnant on Friday May 4th. It was confirmed by the doctor the following Monday. I was going to tell him, but something kept stopping me. It was like I couldn’t believe it was real, and I was so worried something would go wrong. I admit, that didn’t stop me from throwing a positive pregnancy test at my best friend the day after I found out. LOL

I’ll just wait until the first ultrasound, I thought.

I went on a business trip to Vegas and when I got back I had my first ultrasound.

Still didn’t tell him.

In my defense, the doctor said there was a 25% chance I might loose one of the babies, so I wanted to make sure I knew exactly how many were in there before I told him.

Finally one day we got into a fight. He didn’t understand what was wrong with me. “You are tired all the time, you don’t feel well, you are not in the mood. What’s going on?” I almost laughed since he had just listed my pregnancy symptoms. (I had been having a tough time looking after Sawyer with the fatigue and morning sickness). After a minute of silence, I blurted out I was pregnant.

And they lived happily ever after.

Okay, but you get the point. It may not surprise you I kept it a secret for five weeks, but if you knew me, you’d know that I have an enormous mouth, and I am terrible with secrets. Even reading my blog you can probably sense that I don’t hold back.

So, now it’s time to dish. Have you ever kept a secret from your partner? A big one? I am not asking if it’s right or wrong, we all know playing the game of diapers is not always pretty. So, what are you hiding?

  1. Oh my word – 5 weeks!! I couldn’t wait 5 hours to tell him! LOL
    Hmm, I really think I’ve only not told him about gifts…I can’t keep a secret to save my life!

    • I know! I don’t know how I did it since nothing is a secret with me. I think finding out it was multiples helped me make it longer than I would have. I just didn’t want to put him through unnecessary worry or upset until I knew what was going on for sure.

  2. 5 weeks! I don’t think I could keep it a secret that long. My hb would probably have guessed. I don’t have much secrets – maybe the amount I spend online shopping. 😉

  3. Omg, how did you not tell him for so long? My husband was right outside the bathroom door. No way was I doing that alone. Lol.

    As for secrets, we had to do a DNA test to determine our girls are identical. We planned to open the results at their 1st bday party (which we did) but I looked ahead of time. I still haven’t told anyone!

    • Well after a year of trying, lots of tears and lots of disappointments, I was used to carrying the burden so I just didn’t want to get his hopes up. Looking back I am not sure how I did it either! LOL I know my girls are frats because they are completely different in every way. I feel like once they get about older no one will even realize they are twins anymore 😦 Love em to bits.
