I just found out that I am pregant with our 2nd.
I want to tell my hubby, of course, but can't get together a
creative way to let him know.
So, how did you let your partner know?
Hopefully, I'll be talking to you all very soon!
SAM, momma to 3 beautiful babies: Tristan (5), Gabriel (4) , & Brighton (2)
i put together a mix of songs, all of which had references to babies in them!
now, this didn't end up working perfectly with my husband because our first test was so faint that i ended up showing him to confirm before i could give him the cd. i still gave him the cd, and he loved it.
i ended up making another cd for my little sister (some of the same songs, some different) and sending it to her at school...actually, i sent it to her best friend, who hung it on our door so she wouldn't know it was from me and i STILL got a call the next morning with lots of squealing and "ARE YOU PREGNANT?"s.
i seriously love this and i think i will do it with future babes as well so that my husband has a cd to commemorate each pregnancy. hopefully next time i'll be able to hold out and actually surprise him with it!
i'm happy to share songs as well.
midwife and homeschooling mama. building my nest with my husband, our daughter (born at home 11/07), our son (home waterbirth 5/10), and our newest little girl (born at home 4/13)!
My husband actually knew before I did.
Early on in our adventure of conception, I had bought a box of tests from CVS and used two. As I realized how many I would need at my current rate, I bought a bunch less expensively online. In a fit of housecleaning, I reorganized the bathroom, throwing away unnecessary packaging. For the next two cycles I used the tests I purchased online... and then came this week where my flow was late, my breasts were tender, but every other day I had another negative test. I used up the last of the online tests.
Monday morning rolled around, and I arose to my alarm still convinced I was pregnant. I ransacked the bathroom looking for that last CVS test that I knew was in there somewhere (found it hiding amongst some old scrunchies) and as the expiration date was good I went ahead and peed on it. But when the time came to read those little lines! I had thrown out the instructions months earlier. I couldn't interpret the test.
I went and prodded my sleeping husband and asked for his advice. I searched for instructions online and found them for every name brand, but not CVS. Finally, we decided that the results looked most like a negative e.p.t. test, so I went off to classes thinking I was still negative.
He went out for some groceries midmorning, and stopped by CVS. Apparently he whooped and got a little emotional, standing there by himself in the family planning aisle.
When I got home for lunch, he was very indirect - he had bought all kinds of special food treats for me and kept smiling cryptically as I helped him to unpack and put them away, but I was very wound up about my morning class and it took me awhile to catch on. I guess I was trying to not have my hopes up anymore.
So it ended up being a pretty unique story.
Aimee Blessed Momma to 4 amazing boys, P ~ 9 H ~ 7 J ~ 4 and B ~ 1. Happily married to D Living my almost dream life on an urban homestead, hoping for our forever land to find us soon!
I gave my little boy a sign that said "I'm going to be a big brother" and when daddy got home from work he walked up to the door and gave it to him. There was a moment where Nick didn't really understand, and then it clicked and he had a big smile on his face.
I wound up using this....
Ds and I were out in the garden when Dh arrived home from work.
I slipped the sign around Ds neck and he ran up to Dh and said "prize daddy!"
Dh was shocked, even though we were trying....I had had my 1st period last month, the 1st in 2.5 years....fertile again!!
He loved the sign and is very happy!!
