Since we’ve started TTC this year, I’ve been coming up with ideas of how to surprise my husband (many thanks to pinterest) when I finally get the BFP. But I’m also bad at keeping surprises to myself, so there’s always the chance I wouldn’t wait and tell him as soon as I find out. How did you/do you plan to tell your significant other and/or family you are/were expecting?
Also, we BD’d last weekend – and then last night and moreso today, I’ve gotten brown discharge mixed with EWCM (and very very little pink discharge last night). This is only our third month trying but I’m HOPING that this is the month!! Can’t wait to test next week – my fertility app is predicting AF to be here around next Saturday but we’ll see! 🙂

I didn’t surprise my husband about my BFP but we had genetic testing done at 10 weeks and got to find out the sex of the baby. We weren’t sure how long it would take to find out the results so I when I got the call from the dr that we were having our 3rd girl I texted him this shirt and said “what size will you be wanting this in?”
He was overjoyed!

I think about the announcement all the time, but DH has told everyone when we were going to try… so everyone is expecting it… we’ll do a litle something but might tailor it to a specific time of year… WHEN we tell them is what we don’t know. DH wants to wait until after our first doctors appointment, but since we don’t live in the same city, if a trip is planned a littl before we might improvise.
DH won’t get a surprise. He wants to be there, knows FMU works best so I get up and test before he leaves for work. It means more for him that we find out together

Well my dh is a big nerd so I found shirt that has Mario on it and then a mushroom on the tummy that says +1 life or 1 up life or something (don’t remember exactly and it’s hidden away). I’m not sure if he will notice right away but when he does it will be really cute.

My husband loves narwhals and has always said when we have a baby that we should have a narwhal themed nursery. So when we start TTC, I plan on buying a little stuffed narwhal that I can give to him to tell him I’m pregnant.
No idea how we would announce to everyone else but we are still a little ways from TTC.

I cannot wait for my bfp to tell DH!! He kinda dresses bummy and wears mocassins almost everyday and people always talk about him for it. Mocassins and sweatpants are our thing. So I bought these for the day I get to tell him. I’m just going to hand them to him and go from there 🙂

I bought them in girl version too with pink laces so either way, our actual baby can wear them!

that’s too cute!!
that’s what we were thinking, like if we conceived now we could do a Christmas announcement or something!
yessss! I love it. Nerd life.
aaaww that’s adorable, love the unique theme!!
omg, love!! Wonder what his initial response will be! And good idea getting something useful!:)

I’m hoping that we have a party or something to go to right after so I can just be like ‘Well I’m your dd for the next 8 or so months’

I bought a custom onesie that says “Surprise! You’re going to be a Dad!”. However, my DH drives me to all my clinic appointments (out of town and I hate highway driving), so I might have to tell him sooner, when the time comes.

We aren’t TTC right now, but we plan to start next September or October. We keep telling everyone that we have no idea when we want to have kids yet, so it’ll be a huge surprise for everyone (except my best friend). Fiance has made me swear to him that I won’t take a single pregnancy test without him, so we will find out together.
If we conceive within the first two or three months, we are hoping to announce it as a Christmas gift for our parents. A little cliche I know, but the timing is perfect! As for extended family and friends, we’ll probably do a picture of our dog with something about being a “big brother.”

DH will know when the transfer is so it won’t be a complete surprise. However, I bough a pink and a blue receiving blanket when we were TTC naturally along with custom m&m’s that say “in 9 months you will be a dad to either a little boy or a little girl.” I will probably still give one or both to him telling him to not eat the m&ms since they are old.

Haha, your DH and mine are complete opposites! My DH told me that this was the one time that I’d be able to really surprise him. He took me on a surprise trip for the proposal, so I have to figure out a way to return the favor. Obviously it won’t be a surprise vacation. We aren’t TTC yet, so I have plenty of time to think on it. 🙂 I know that I’ll have to hide my suspicions until I have a positive test in hand. I’ll likely figure out how I want to surprise him and buy anything that I’ll need right when we start trying (like a cute onesie or baby shoes or something…).

Haha too funny!! My Fiance hates being out of the know. I would LOVE to surprise him, but I’d also have such a hard time not telling him that I think I’m pregnant! I have a feeling we’ll both be pretty anxious during our first TWW.
