Okay Parents, please share any fun ways you let your partner know another one is on the way! Got my blood work back this afternoon and husband is working late so I have time to make it a fun surprise! All ideas welcomed, would like to include my son on the fun too. Ahhh, so excited!!

    First time.... we were doing bills together and he asked me for a pen and I handed him my positive test, took him a good minute or two to figure it out. Second, I put the test in a watch gift box for Father’s Day. Fool thought he was getting a Rolex. Third, I hung it on the Xmas tree as an ornament and waited OVER A WEEK for him to find it!! Fourth, I put the positive test in his work pants to find while on the job. Last one, I had the kids all wear special t shirts announcing mommy’s pregnant... AGAIN!!

    I found out the day after Father's Day, so I went in and woke him up and said happy Father's Day ❤️

    We always get a box of Cinnabon’s when we celebrate things cause we’re fat like that. So I wrote on the inside of the lid and said “mommy can’t be the only one getting fat these 9 months, eat up” :) To include your son I think the cutest idea is to have him in a shirt that says big brother when dad gets home from work! That’s what I’d do! Or maybe your son can make him a card that says congratulations or something cute too

    My friends got their first born a shirt that said big sister and had her wear it under a hoodie and let dad take her coat off

    I love these cards on etsy that say "Your pullout game is weak" but it is a little lewd.

    I had him come with me to my ultrasound. He thought it was just follow up GYN. Lol. His exact words were ... Are you f***ing kidding me?! I called ahead and told them to not mention anything about the positive pregnancy because my husband didn't know yet.

    Thank you everyone, some great ideas! I don’t know how some of you waited, it was so hard to hold it in for one day. Ended up finding a “Big Brother” shirt for my son and a card that said “Yay” and blank inside, so I added: We did it again, we’re pregnant! Was perfect as I had my son run in and give him the card, which hubby didn’t know why he was getting a card and I could see him trying to read the shirt, but my wiggly son wouldn’t stand still. My husband asked him, what does your shirt say, he says “I don’t know” as they are trying to open the card, hilarious. Wished I had recorded, but it was nice to just enjoy the moment and excitement. Thanks again all for sharing your ideas!

    One day after I told my SO I was pregnant we saw the cutest announcement in a tv show, “Baby Daddy” He kept asking me why I didn’t tell him this way! On the show, the girl got down on one knee and handed him a box. When he opened it there was a pacifier inside. Super cute!

    I tried to put my announcement on a toaster strudel “baby” but the frosting melted all the lettering so I had to just let blurt it out😂
