“Pretend you’re gossiping about someone and say OMG YOULL NEVER GUESS WHOS HAVING A BABY!! and when he says who? Throw a stick at him and say YOU!”
“I bought a onesie that said ‘Rad just like my dad’ and a baby hat and wrapped it up. He opened it and cried! That was a long 13-month process getting pregnant! Sadly we lost her at 16 weeks but then I was pregnant again 7 months later and I just flat out told him.”
“I really wanted to put, like, a honey bun or something that says Bun and put it in the oven….ask him to check the oven. See how long it took him to get it… but I wound up sticking the pregnancy test in my waistband and getting frisky with him. So when he found it he was like, what is this? Lol, I got impatient.”
“I did a pregnancy box. Luckily fathers day was around the corner, so I got a father’s day onesie for next year. I put the pregnancy sticks in a bracelet jewelry box. And then I asked him where he wanted to go for dinner, and he picked the perfect spot actually and that’s where I gave him the box.”
“OMG. Just say I’m pregnant. After all, it takes two to tango.”
“What I did with my hubby when I found out I was pregnant with our first was walk up to him (with the pregnancy test behind my back) and say ‘hi daddy’… at first he looked at me like I was stupid. I continued to grin at him and then it sunk in. That’s how I told my mom as well ‘hi grandma’ she cried, with all 3 pregnancies ( I miscarried my first).”
“I did a scavenger hunt around the house, it ended in the spare room with a note, the stick and an ‘I love daddy’ onesie.”
“Personally I just yelled ‘oh my god’ from the bathroom.”
“I held up the stick when he was playing Xbox. His exact words were ‘dude, I gotta go.'”
“If you know how to crochet/sew you could make baby clothes/booties until he notices and asks what you’re doing.”
“Put a baby bottle and a diaper beside his 1st cup of coffee!”
