Fun Ways to Tell SO Elle With FOUR! 4 kids; Wichita, KS, United States 18964 posts

Got my BFP, and I want to find a REALLY fun way to tell SO he's gonna be a Daddy. I've thought about cliping a note to his dog's collar, or doing a meal with baby back ribs/baby carrots/etc, but I'm not sure. I do a lot of baking, and even thought about making buns, like for hamburgers, and asking him what's in the oven (there's a bun in the oven....er, yeah, maybe that one's only funny in my head...?)

Any fun suggestions? I tried googling it and came up with either stuff I already thought of, or really stupid ideas lol

If it was closer to Christmas I'd say just add it in with the rest of the presents but kinda far away for that lol.

I thought about playing Hangman and spelling out "I'm Pregnant" in the blanks....but I don't know if he would think I'm serious or not?

I wrapped up the test for my husband and gave it to him. After realized what it was and hugged me and all that stuff, he suddenly realized I had peed on it and was all "hey you peed on this huh? Ew, meg!". Haha silly man.



My sister put the test on her husband's night stand before he woke up in the morning.

Do you do family dinners at a table? What if one night you set an extra plate out... hopefully he would notice and ask who it was for and you can tell him then.

lol we don't even have a table so no judging from me. but it was a thought! I think it'd be cute for someone who usually does that for dinner.
