It was Valentine’s Day so I wrapped up the test in an I love Daddy bib and put it with the rest of his presents. He was speechless which never happens.

Not pregnant or TTC. But I sort of want to tell him like Jackie told Fred on Rosanne. Wait until  he’s on the toilet fling open the bathroom door and shout “I’m Pregnant, and Your the Father, if you want to talk about it I’ll be in the kitchen!” lol but he always locks the door. lmao

I always thought I’d do something cute on Pinterest, but when I saw the 2nd line I called Darling Husband to come upstairs and tell me if it was playing tricks on me.

Peaceoutboyscout:  Well I had all these cute ideas of how I would tell him. I planned on taking the test when he wasn’t home and putting the test, a baby outfit, and a picture frame that said “Waiting for the Little One” that had a sonogram picture in it and I typed up a little note that said “Hi Daddy”. I was so excited to do this, but I took the test when he was home and I thought I saw a faint line and was so excited, but confused and I needed a second opinion so I ran out and asked him if he saw a line. He said he did, but he didn’t believe it was real until 2 days later when I took another test and it was really dark. If we have baby #2 I may do my cute idea then. I’m currently 15 wks 4 days. Good Luck!

We will start TTC next summer but I already know how I wanna tell him. (We love ordering stuff on Amazon and get the free 2 day shipping with Prime)… so Im gonna casually say “I got something, it’s quite expensive, non-returnable/refundable” you gonna love it, unfortunatelly it wont be delivered for like 9 months” ugh lol 😂  And see his reaction lol. I think he will get it. I’ll have a back up card and the pee stick with the words “Can’t wait to meet you, Daddy” 🙂 in case he cant brain that day lol.

I found out I was pregnant 6 months after our wedding to the day. So I went to a toy shop and brought a little peter rabbit toy/blanket thing (his family is related to Beatrix potter somehow). I got it all wrapped up. I got home before him so I for him to get home, he started to make us dinner and dropped the uncooked pasta on the floor. I point blank refused to let him cook it after that hahaha. I told him I had a gift for him he was confused and said sorry he had no gift for me as he didn’t realize a six month anniversary was a thing . I got my camera and said first let’s take a 6 moths married selfie. we took a picture then I secretly turned the camera on to record. I gave him the gift and he was a bit confused when he opened it but I gave him the pregnancy test and he was so happy and surprised.

I just told him tonight! I was on the phone with him when I walked back into the bathroom to check the stick and I said, “Oh shit!” He thought I had broken something. I wish I’d had time to plan something cute but, I didn’t expect the result or to be on the phone with him at the time, haha.

Peaceoutboyscout:   Well. I had plans to get him a gift but I never picked anything up so that didn’t happen. The day I got my BFP I was testing just because we were having photos taken that evening and I thought if it was positive, it would be fun to tell him during the photos so the photographer could capture his reaction. I wasn’t expecting a BFP though, so when my squinter showed up I panicked and decided to wait a day to make sure it got darker before I told him.  Glad I did, because he didn’t get excited like I thought he would.  He went into SHOCK. He got really quiet, no kiss no hug no nothing. And eventually got up to get a beer from the garage.  He was excited a few days later when I was able to show him a dark test line.  Honestly, I cant be upset he was shocked since I was too the day before, I’d just already had time to process it when I told him.

I just found out a couple of days ago. I took a test and the line was faint. I showed Darling Husband but he didn’t believe it. So the next day I went and got a digital that says “pregnant” and a Denever Broncos onesie and left it on the counter where he puts his keys when he comes in from work. He believes it now!!!!
