I couldn’t think of any other way to title this.
So I took like a million pregnancy tests last week because I just felt kind of off. Wasn’t sure whether or not it was too early to test since my cycle is all screwy and my period is never consistent. All the tests were negative. Today when DH was leaving for work he brought one in that had apparantly fallen out of the box and was in his car. Just woke up a couple hours later and couldn’t resist the urge to test since I haven’t since Sunday..and GOT A BFP. I’m super happy and also surprised – it was our first month trying and I just didn’t expect it to happen that fast, we weren’t charting yet and it took my parents a year of trying to get pregnant with me!
Of course, DH worked the early shift today and I have the late shift! So I won’t get to tell him till tonight cuz I really wanna do it in person. Till then I had to tell SOMEONE, so I figured you girls would be a good choice. Before work I’m gonna go buy a couple more tests just to confirm, but it wasn’t even an almost there line – the pregnant part of the plus sign was actually darker than the other! Though I’m still having trouble believing it’s real. And maybe I’ll also get something cute to wrap up and use to tell DH! Any suggestions?
(And for those following my old posts where I was freaking out in about DH and TTC, I never got around to updating that thread but we have had a ton of great conversations since that totally eased my worries and we are both looking forward very much to becoming parents, I can update that thread later but right now I want just want to be excited, ok?)

I’d buy him a cute little baby shirt that says “I love my daddy” or “Daddy’s little angel” and wrap it up and have him open it 🙂

Also, I wanted to say that you should definitely retest before telling him though! (I know you said you’re planning on it – which is good) I’d just be worried that the test could be screwey after sitting in his car all week.

Congrats how exciting! I told my hubby by buying little newborn monkey booties. I wrote a note saying something like “we are having a little monkey” and put it on top of booties in a box. I wrapped up the box all pretty. We went to one of our favorite restaurants and I gave him the gift there. I hid it in my big ol purse. He thought it was a watch or something and when he saw what it was he started crying and I soon followed. I had my camera so I took pics and the waitress took a pic of us too which is now in my pregnancy book. I did something similar with my parents except with a onesie and wrote a little note to my mom saying I hope I can be as wonderful a mother as you.
