As i sit around waiting to ovulate..my mind is going 100 mph. I was thinking of a cute way to finally tell DH that we were pregnant. Btw- i decided to have a drawing made of us–but i will be 9 months pregnant in the pic and i will have “coming soon” written on it. Like those drawing you can have done at a fair for $20. But then i got to thinking, “what if i m/c (which is likely due to my PCOS) and all that build up and excitment was for nothing and just adds to the let down”
Shoukd i go ahead with a cute WERE PREGNANT idea…or play it safe? Any advice?

I would wait until you’re a few weeks along, where your chances are good for keeping the preganancy, before telling him. Your picture idea sounds really cute! How would you give him the picture though? Just show him, or leave in somewhere for him to find? I hope you post a picture =)

@ashleyr0512: I would tell him right away however you want to tell him! If (God forbid) something were to happen with the pregnancy, you would want him by your side. Your picture idea sounds really cute! Do it!!

I definately wouldnt not tell him straight away as someone else recommended. If you were to MC you would want him to be there to help you through. I think the picture idea sounds really cute!

I think i will wrap it as a gift and then have him open it. I was weighing the pros and cons and i agree with you ladies, i will tell him in a cute way. My thinking is, what would i reget most in the future–Not doing something cute and having a perfectly healthy pregnancy or doing something fun and cute and losing the baby. I think if the pregnancy stuck i would be more disappointed we didn’t have a cute story to tell.

@ashleyr0512: I didn’t really think of it that way before. The other girls are right, it would be better to have him there for support if something did happen. Plus then you won’t have to hide your excitement =)

@ashleyr0512: not preggers buI when the time comes I’m gonna put a pea in a ring box and give it to him and when he opens it and sees its a pea, I’m hoping he’s gonna say “what’s this” to which I will reply, that’s the size of our baby…

Aww, don’t start the pregnancy thinking negative thoughts! Don’t rob yourselves of that excitement because you’re nervous you may miscarry. If MC happens, it happens, but it will be a journey that you both go through together.
Do something cute! You’ll both remember it as a special private moment for years to come.

I have fabric paint and thought about writing “Coming Soon” on a white onesie for him to open.
The location is most important to me: We had our first kiss and got engaged in a specific location, and I would want him to open it there.

@ashleyr0512: Tell him right away! I am jealous you get to do something cute! I had something planned but I was so excited and am so horrible at keeping a secret that within hours of me finding out, my husband was like, “are you pregnant?” Ooops! I gave him the cute baby tee after that, but it totally ruined the surprise!

@ashleyr0512: I would definitely not keep it from him… afterall, he is your husband and IF something happened you wouldn’t want to go through it alone. Also, my biggest piece of advice is to try and be positive… don’t let fear get in the way of something wonderful.

I told DH about 10 minutes after I found out. I needed time to get over the shock and mixed feelings of “yay I’m pregnant” and “omfg I’m pregnant”.
Go ahead and tell him in a cute way. I took a picture of the stick with the BFP and texted him saying “Happy Belated Father’s Day… told you something was up.” This happened exactly 2 days after Father’s Day so it worked out.
Have fun with it, especially if you’re TTC. DH will be there to help you, especially during the sleepiness, exhaustion, MS and other symptoms that come with the first trimester.
