Week 1 of me-being-pregnant-without-the-husband-knowing commenced.
Our “non-disclosure pregnancy pact” included two rules:
- Don’t tell him that I’m pregnant.
- I can tell anyone else that I’m pregnant.
I took a pregnancy test, which immediately came up positive. Slightly shocked, I proceeded to follow our rules and called my mother, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law, and a handful of girlfriends. I even skyped the news.
I said the same thing to all of them: “I’m pregnant. Don’t tell Zach.”
The first time I was pregnant, we did the usual – we didn’t tell anyone aside from close friends & family, until I was past week 13. For the first trimester, Zach was my sounding board for my pregnancy woes. I analyzed every detail of how I felt. I’m sure he hated it.
So far this has gone much better. Girlfriends love to talk. Period.
I don’t know how long I am going to be able to keep this from him. After all, the kid is due on Zach’s birthday.
