My friend sent a picture consisting of her shoes, a + sign, her husband's shoes, an = sign and then baby shoes as an announcement! I thought it was so creative and cute! What do you plan on doing?

That's really adorable! I can't wait to see what ideas you all might have.

Aww! That's an adorable idea!

For #1, I wrote "Soon to be dad" on a dinner plate with permanent marker (found the idea online) and waited for DH to get to the bottom of his plate to find the message. He was totally oblivious and even went back for seconds without seeing the message! The marker started to fade due to the heat of the food and I was starting to panic. I finally got impatient and said, "Read that!! What does it say??" and then he was like, "Ohhhh, I didn't even see it!" LOL By that point I was in tears. :-)

For #2, I already have a "I'm the Big Sister" t-shirt for my DD but not sure how I'll annouce the next BFP to DH. Would like to do something special again but think it will all depend on what day/time I get my BFP and how long I can hold out. Last time I got my BFP in the morning and was a huge ball of nerves waiting to tell DH at dinner!

No real need to be creative with DH, he'll stand outside the door while I POAS.

That's cute!

Christine: Nice! We don't know how we will tell anyone yet, but perhaps just an announcement in a card!

Oh my god that is so funny. That is how I was thinking of telling my husband. Putting a shirt on my daughter that says I'm the big sister and wait for him to see it. I also really like the diner plate idea. Hubby always wants me to make his plate (southern thing). But I never do. I just make the diner.

Also I like the idea of getting a group of people together to take a picture and say "say amy's pregnant" instead of say cheese to get everyones face"
