Congratulations on your pregnancy! Before you blurt out the news, consider surprising your husband or partner in one of these creative ways.
As soon as you see the positive pregnancy test, you’ll feel so excited, nervous and thrilled that you’ll want to run to your husband or partner to tell him the news right away. But if you can calm down enough, you can surprise him by announcing your pregnancy in a unique way.
Plan a surprise “proposal” to announce the news to your hubby that you’re expecting a little bundle. Consider recreating the way he proposed to you. Or place the positive pregnancy test in a box, get down on one knee and ask him, “Will you be the father of our baby?”
Say it with a T-shirt
There are so many T-shirt companies that sell tees perfect for fathers-to-be. If you can’t find one with the perfect saying to present to your man, custom-create one yourself. Think of a cute phrase like “World’s Greatest Dad-to-be” — and give it to him as a gift. If you are expecting baby No. 2, have your first child don a shirt that reads “Big Brother” or “Big Sister” — we’re thinking your man will get the message pretty quickly!
Show him the proof
Instead of framing the first sonogram picture, share your baby’s first picture via Facebook with a personal message to your man. If he’s not a social media junkie, text him a picture of the sonogram or a picture of the positive pregnancy test with a short and sweet message like, “We’re expecting!”
Shower him with hints
Surprise him with a slew of small baby present gifts (like bottles, binkies and a baby bonnet). He’ll surely get the message that you two are expecting!
Spell it out
Sometimes the best way to announce big news to a man is to say it straight up. Spell it out for him with the words, “We’re pregnant.” You can write it in the sand at the beach, with lipstick on the bathroom mirror or even in frosting on a cake.
Starting a family is a very special time. With some planning and creativity, you can tell your husband that you’re pregnant in a way that he’ll never forget.
Did you surprise your man with the news you’re pregnant in a fun or special way? Do tell!
