Oops, I crossposted with MamaetMaman's QOTD!
DP and I agreed long ago that I was too OCD to have to wait for him (have I mentioned that DP is trans? hence the male pronouns) every time I want to pee on a test. But I usually test so early that I first get a very faint positive and am not sure, and then our tradition is to do a confirming digital test, which he hods and watches for the result.
As for telling other people, in the past I was super secretive, even in our inner circle. But when we had our loss in the first pregnancy, I realized that I had to tell lots of people bad news (when I needed their support) without ever having told them the good news. So the second time, we told more people, usually just in a phone call or in-person conversation. We kept it a facebook/outer circle secret well into the second trimester, though!
This time, if we're lucky enough to get a BFP, I'd tell our little community of queer parents, many of whom we've supported through their TTC process. And my parents and siblings. DP has a best friend he'd tell, plus his parents and siblings too.
Sorry for the long answer. Can you tell how much I don't want to get to work here?
