@Chanel87:  Those kinds of things can be made in an hour at a t-shirt shop. Most swapmeets have one. If I were you, I’d scope one out, put aside the money and do it that way.

I would say that the way you want to surprise him, you are fine with waiting until you get your BFP. I surprised DH with a special onsie that would take weeks to come in, so I had pre-ordered it I had to wait over a year to use that bad-boy, but it was so worth it!! I hope your TTC journey is short and you get that BFP soon!

@Chanel87:  you won’t jinx yourself. I say do it because I couldn’t even wait an hour for target to open to tell him!

I wouldn’t do them ahead of time. hopefully not, but if you have trouble getting your bfp, it would be a painful reminder, not to mention it would be hurtful for him if he stumbled upon them somehow.

The logical part of me says that making these in advance can not and will not affect your ability to get pregnant – but then I also had my own superstitions when I was TTC 🙂 and it’s hard to have a reminder around if it takes a long time. But then the month I gave in and bought hubby a book in advance was the month we finally got our bfp, after 15 months!! So maybe it will bring you good luck 😉

I wouldn’t do this. The idea does not sit well.

Ok, I know that this sounds loony, but this is what I would do.

Buy the shirts, buy the paint and trace out the design. That way a lot of the work is done (especially if you just stick to one colour). Then, the day you find out, have a mate take him out for the day whilst you do the actual painting and let them dry. 

This way they are only half done beforehand and there is no bad juju.

Yes, this is crazy but my usually logical brain has decided that this is best.

I’d say do them ahead of time and make sure there’s no way hubby can find them! That way you can tell him straight away!!

I wouldn’t worry about jinxing anything. I’d be worried about him accidentally coming across them somehow (maybe he decided to spring clean the back of the closet where you happen to keep them), and then thinking you were pregnant already. That would be a big let down.

I’m not even ttc yet (we start in November), but I’ve already bought DH the gift I’ll give him when we get our BFP. No bad juju there. I just want to be prepared…And it seems easier to keep the gift a secret for a few months than it would be to keep a pregnancy a secret for a few hours!

@Chanel87:  I woke DH up at 4am to show him my pee stick. Definitely have them done in advance!
