  • Congratulations! With my first, he knew about a month before I did (I'm very irregular, and so didn't suspect anything until I was about 12 weeks), and with our second, we were trying, and so continually discussing it.

  • So I got home from work and said "Soo, how would you like to be a daddy?" and he says why, and I say "Because Baby, we're going to have a baby."

  • I know one girl that sent her husband on a scavenger hunt and at the end of it she was standing there with booties and told him she was pregnant. I just woke up husband up (i took the test at 4 AM lol) and told him I was pregnant.... he didn't believe me so I had to show him the test. :)

  • First time around I told him "we're dead" and handed him the HPT.

    Second time - I told him I needed to go to the doctor -- this one ended in a MC

    Third time - I told him that he needed to work harder the crib I want is $350. he looked at me and marched me out the door to walmart and made me p on a stick again lol

  • i like the scavenger hunt idea!! or send him an email with lots of baby stuff! or you could just leave the test out somewhere obvious where he will see it! or leave a lullabye on his voice mail.

  • w my husband, he was there while i took the first one..

    he was across the country with our 2nd which is why he's still alive so i told him over the phone..

    the 3rd time...he knew what i went into the bathroom to do and the unavoidably huge smile on my face was the answer
