Announcing your pregnancy to the daddy to be? Whether it’s your first baby or your second, third, or fourth, here are some adorable ways to let your husband know you’re pregnant! Surprise him with the best news ever with these fun and creative ideas!
I was so surprised when we got pregnant with our daughter. The doctors didn’t think we could have a baby on our own (without infertility methods) so we had lost a bit of hope. When I took a pregnancy test and it was positive, I delivered the news to my husband with total shock and disbelief.
Me: Umm Nick. I don’t think these things give false positives (showing him the positive pregnancy test).
Nick: What?? Where did you get that test?
Me: The Dollar Tree
Nick: No, we’re going to buy a more expensive test.
Off to the store we went to buy the most expensive pregnancy test he could find. (Apparently to him expensive also meant accurate).
The second test came back positive and we were so shocked and excited! All that to say that if we are able to have a second baby, I want to surprise him with the news in a much more fun and meaningful way.
