Take a Moment For the Two of You
Whether you're with the dad-to-be at the time you take the pregnancy test or you call him with the good news, before letting it travel any further, take some time to let the reality of your pregnancy set in for just the two of you. You'll want to get on the same page about your game plan - will you tell your families right away, wait until your first doctor's visit, or wait until you're through with your first trimester? It's a personal decision for every couple, and to avoid mixed signals or hurt feelings, it's important to be in agreement. It's also kind of nice to revel in sharing such a major, life-altering secret, so allow yourselves to embrace the excitement - this is a big deal!

Whether you saw two lines, a smiley face, or a plus sign, the results are in, and you've got the very beginnings of a baby on board! For some moms-to-be, the immediate instinct is to scream, for others it's to cry, and for still others, it's to sprint to the pharmacy and take 10 more tests. Once the reality has sunk in (or at least started to), you'll probably wonder, "Well, now what?" Pour yourself a glass of sparkling water, cheers the dad-to-be, and read on for the "what's next."
