Sorry if it's been covered but I'm on my phone an very confused haha so how did you tell your other half? Last time it was an oops so I called him from the bathroom hyperventilating while he was at work! This time I want to make it special so I need ideas!! I was planning on getting a watch box putting the test in and wrapping it up as a present that's what I'll do if I can't find anything else!

I'm pretty simple, I just handed him the very faint FRER test and said do you see two lines there?!?!?!

Ha! I so suck at breaking the news. Both times have been a surprise so I was really nervous about telling him. The first time I just blurted it out as he walked in the door from work. This time, we were folding clothes upstairs and he made the comment that he really hoped our daughter would want to play video games with him one day. I said, "Well if she doesn't it looks like there may be another player coming." He took a deep breath and sat down. I should have done something, ANYTHING better than that!

He knew because I showed him the first test, but it was such a faint line that we didn't believe it. The second day I tested alone and told him it was for real. I gave him a shirt that said "I love my pregnant wife."

I ended up doing it in the watch box and he said "Is this a legit test?" it took about ten mins to convince him it was real haha I need to get my other half that shirt!!!

Love the watch idea, so cute. I really with I had the patience for it.. But I like the idea of getting both my girls in big sister shirts and bringing them out to see him. That way they can be the one to tell him. :)

I have no idea! I won't be testing for a couple weeks still, but DH is usually so on top of it I can't wait to tell him. He'll ask me 3 days before AF is due if I know yet lol.

We're going through fertility treatments so DH knows exactly when we will be finding out and will be calling me all day to see if the results are in, so I won't be able to surprise him. I may look for an "I love daddy" item to give as a gift, just cause.
