Dad-to-Be: Wife Learned She Was Pregnant from Her Fitbit
A New York City woman learned she was pregnant after her Fitbit tipped her off to a higher-than-usual heart rate.
The woman's husband posted about the issue last week on Reddit, believing there was something wrong with the workout-tracking device.
Then, he received numerous responses asking whether his wife was unknowingly pregnant.
He later returned to let everyone know that his wife was indeed pregnant with their first child.
Thank you all for your overwhelming support! Its been awesome to read all the comments and well wishes, even the comments questioning whether I am in fact the father (gotta have a sense of humor on here, right?). I just wanted to say this is indeed real, I do not work for fitbit, this is not guerrilla marketing. This is real, the fear is real, the excitement is very real! I am a regular guy who was just looking for the communities help with his wife's technology issue (we've all been there, right?). Little did i know I got alot more than I bargained for! Now I'm a regular guy who is preparing to have his first child brought into the world, god willing, in Oct 2016.
The dad, David, later told Buzzfeed that he and his wife, Ivonne, had been trying to get pregnant for the last few months.
After the Reddit tips, Ivonne took a pregnancy test and it came back positive.
“It’s definitely a great story to tell [the baby] one day about how it happened," he said.
