@Mrs.H2B:  I WAS going to tell my husband by using his proposal video and just changing the will you marry me to a picture of the test and the words “will you be the daddy?” BUT it was the morning of my friend’s wedding, and I was shocked to see a positive so I just ran down the steps, flipped on the light, and shook him awake. He was really excited.

We put a Big Brother t-shirt on our St. Bernard puppy to tell my parents. They were so confused, so we actually had to tell them what it meant, lol.They were (and still are) over the mood excited.

My brother got baby themed candy like Sour Patch Kids, Baby Ruth, Baby Bottle Pop, and a Hershey bar with t ehe and she colored in. He says, “I know this means something but I don’t know what.” Lol.

For my in laws we put the pregnancy tests in a box and let them open it. We got a very dull reactionb where MIL asked FIL if he knew that those were. He said he did but he didn’t know how to read them. She told him we were pregnant. She gave us a hug, but wasn’t really jump for joy excited like we though she’d be. FIL didn’t care. He did congratulate us later. MIL has come around a lot more and wants to tell everyone, but she is sword to secrecy.

SIL is the most excited, and all we did was call her and tell her not to make plans for April because she is going to be an aunt. She lives too far away for us to do anything special, but she was very happy.

My DH after came home from doc apt, told him he needs to sit down. Mind you this was in the foyer of our home and just blurted it out. I had been to the doc for something else and thought was pregnant but wasnt sure so had them have me take a test.

My MIL/FIL we told over Skype just said how would you like to be grandparents again. DH siblings have kids.

My parents we told in person basically the same thing.  My brother has kids.

My girls for my wedding.  (Was 4 months pregnant when got married)  For my bach party my MOH (she was told due to there was to be drinking involved at the bach party) My MOH made jello shots in minature baby bottles and had me pass them around. The girls were confused for a minute than dawned on them.

It was the weekend after fathers day, so I bought him a belated fathers day card.

I just flat out told DH because I was in shock.  We were actively TTC at that point, but it was the first month so I didn’t believe it, nor did I have any symptoms.  I believe my exact words were “That’s a f*ckin’ pink line!”

My parents: We put a tank top on our pup that said “Big Puppy Brother – 12.31.13” and had him come in their house that way.  They love our dog, so it was pretty cute…although it took them forever to figure it out.

For DH’s parents/family I photoshoped a pic and stuck it in with some wedding pictures that I planned to give them.  When his mom got to it, it took her a minute, and then she started crying.  It was pretty sweet.  We put the same picture on fbook. 🙂

We totally just told everyone.  I called DH into the bathroom to show him the pee stick, we called my family and told them, and with his family he was just like, “So Zoeygirl’s pregnant.”  The surprise and joy was enough for us, without feeling like we needed to use a cute gimmick.  It’s great for some people, and maybe we’ll put a big brother/sister shirt on this kid for the next one, but for our first pregnancy we just wanted to tell everyone and get on to celebrating.

a girl im friends with just posted on Facebook a video of her and her hubby cutting a cake and in the cake was the colour of the sex. They had given the sex to the cake people in an envelope from the doctor without knowing themselves, so they didn’t know whether it was a boy or girl. Then in front of all their friends and fam they cut the cake and the inside was pink!!!! They were so happy and it was such a cute way of doing it!!

So I’m not pregnant yet, but I’ve already planned how I will (eventually) tell DH we’re expecting. His absolute favorite book from childhood is “There’s a Monster at the End of this Book” so I plan to wrap a new copy, and write in the inside “there’s a new little miss or mister for you to share this with!” He’s also obsessed with Spider-Man, so I would probably throw a spidey bib or onesie in there as well. 🙂

We will be TTC in the next month or 2 and I’ve had a million ideas running through my head about how I will tell DH when the time comes. I’m thinking about buying a blanket and wrapping it with a note saying I can’t wait to cuddle in my first blanket with you Dad. Or I was thinking about setting up a camera with a self timer and when we go to take the picture say, “I’m pregnant” and then we’ll have a photo of his reaction. I also already have some ideas of how we’ll tell our parents. My favorite is to give them a pacifier with a note written from baby asking them to hold onto it because mom and dad will probably forget it when we come to visit and then it’ll say, see you in 9 months. I know some people think this stuff is so corny but I love it and I think it makes the moment special!
