  • We already thought i was but I took a home test, it was positive. so I got a balloon I don't remember what exactly it said I love you daddy or something like that, I wrote some little notes and the date on it than I tied the positive test on the end for the weight. Soon as he saw it he knew what it was about and got really happy.
    I was so scared to tell my mom so when i told her I had a little pink onsie thing, and i was showing her everything i bought my son and at the end I pulled out the pink one and just told her i got this too. and she was a lil confused at first than asked me if i was pregnant. I said yeah I' m going to have a girl. It was a good way to break the ice about it I couldn't just come out and tell her.

  • Yeah I didn't do it in a fun way, he was working out of state so I had to either tell him over the phone or wait a week... (I am horrible with stuff like that!) So I took a pic and sent it to him of the pregnancy test, the response I got back was "wow, already? We literally tried one day, one time, and poof got it on the first try... craziness! I know the idea was lame, but I couldn't wait LOL

  • my mom had been wanting a g-baby for like 8 years now. we found out less than a month before her b-day (dec 6), but i was afraid that i wouldn't be able to keep it secret untill then. at thanksgiving when the whole family was around i gave her an "early" b-day present that had a bib saying 'grandma, where are you?' and the two EPT's that i'd and showed positive. she cried, OMG did she cry, along with 1/2 of the family. we tend to cry when we're happy around here.

  • I found out I was pregnant & told my very creative aunt. I got pregnant around at the beginning of December & my Aunt Cynthia said to not tell anyone, not even my husband because she was going to do something special at our family Christmas party. So I waited. Well we have a tradition where she passes out gifts one by one & when we were almost done, she told everyone to please be quiet and look at my husband and I because we were opening a very special gift. I had no idea what it was & no body else did. We opened it & it was a little pair of yellow booties. My husband was so surprised & happy & everyone was happy for us also & it is a good memory.

  • my fiance (now my hubby) i just basically told him hey i got a positive pregnancy test, and sent him out to go buy 2 more,...both with the same result of course. I got an ultra sound at 12 weeks, (which was about 4 weeks after we got married) i gave him the ultra sound and told him to take it to his mom to show her the first grandchild.... that was a pretty easy way to tell her. my parents already knew at that point.
