If the pregnant woman's partner is present, I will most certainly congratulate him. After all, he is also expecting, albeit in a different way. Otherwise, I will either wait until I see him next or ask that my congratulations be relayed to him.
If of course you don't know him or never met him...as it can happen, then it's a bit difficult but I hope that my wishes can be seen as for them both.After all, he did play an important role LOL.
Yes of course. If he is there at the time. Often, if I am out with some girlfriends and I would get told then, when the husband / boyfriend is not around. If the person and their partner come to visit us, of course I would congratulate them both. It takes two to tango.
Maybe. I don't really acknowledging a whole lot. I'm also a bit hesitant at making a big fuss.Always worried I will be a jonah. I usually say "that's great for the both of you". Then when the baby is actually born, I make a big fuss. Guess I am a bit of a pessimist.
I once witnessed a couple congratulate a woman when she announced she was pregnant. Her husband, who was the father and who was present, was completely overlooked. I did not understand what happened at all and was very saddened for the expectant father.
