Share your tips for announcing your pregnancy to the daddy-to-be.

1st one and 2nd one he was there for the BFP-well the first one it was the "Is it a" followed by a doctor's appoint 2 days later for the sinus infection I got at the same time where I had them test me. I called him and told him as soon as I could find a phone.

The third-I taped the test into an Anne Geddes card.

This is my first pregnancy and I have been trying to think of a cute way to tell him. I decided that I will have him come with me to my first ultrasound appointment (which is on my 25th birthday). I will go in by myself at first then have the nurse bring him in and show him our baby's heart beat. I'm super emotional so I hope I get the reaction I want, otherwise I might have a meltdown. This is a planned pregnancy we've been trying since the start of the new year.

For our second i bought a shirt for my son that said I'm a big Brother. I had to have my hubby read it aloud a couple times before he got it. Then he looked at me and said "OMG your kidding". I said "nope", he said "but i am just getting used to this one." LOL. We had our first two close together so it was lil shocker to be preggo 3 mos after our first was born.

This pregnancy I woke up early the day after my missed period (around 5am on a Sat, couldnt sleep) and took the test. It was a digital test so it said PREGNANT and I took a picture of it with my cell. DH had to be at work at 10 that day and his office is attached to our apt (he's a property mgr) and I sent him a txt with the pic and sat there in his office just chatting until he opened it. He said, "What is this?" lol, I said you don't know...he said no so I told him I'm pregnant. He was happy, he said I should have figured, it's March (both our kids were born in Dec, lol) I told him were early this time, this one's due in Nov, I already checked webmd, lol...

With our 2nd I was so excited that I shoved the test in his face while he was showering. I didn't mean to put it in his face. That was just where he happened to be standing. It was funny.
