  • With our first we put ultra sound pictures in father's day cards for our dads. With our second we put a t-shirt on our son that said "I am a big brother" and went to visit our families.

  • I went and bought my parents bibs that said "Grandpa" and "Grandma" and my sister one that said "Aunt." I put them in gift bags and gave them to them. They had a fit. It was fun watching their faces b/c they had no clue.

  • With my daughter I called everyone at midnight when I got off from work and took a I had been trying for quite some time and everybody knew it so they were happy. My daughter's father was in the military so I called and left him a voicemail that said we needed to talk and he called me at 6 am to hear the good news. He was literally the last to know lol.

    This time I was late, but I had taken a test that came out negative a few days prior. I asked him if he wanted to give it a while longer or pick up a test on the way home from lunch and he said to get another one. I took it, the control line came up and then nothing, so I sat it down on the counter and told him it was negative. I took care of groceries and went back in to throw it away a few minutes was positive. All I could say was "that's not negative" like I was confused. He took it and said "wow, nope, that isn't negative" lol

  • Since I was 18, every time I said "guess what?" to my mom, she asked "are you pregnant?"... so basically I just had to say "guess what?" lol... I never even said it... she did.
