Fun Ways to Suprise Your Husband That Your Pregnant?

Hi!
I just found out that I was pregnant yesterday, and I was wondering if anyone had any fun ways to suprise their husband about being pregnant. He's really a fiance - getting married in June, so theres a dilema with the dress, but oh well! He will be happy any way that I tell him, but I would like to be creative about it. Thanks for any advice!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

Just wanted to update you on how I told my fiance - a little late in letting you know but oh well! I went to Babies R Us and got an "I'm the Big Sister" shirt for my daughter, one pink and one blue bib, and the book What to Expect When Your Wife is Expanding (hilarious book!) and wrapped it up. When my fiance got home that evening, my daughter was supposed to be walking around with the shirt, but she decided to play hide and seek. Then she told my fiance there was a present for him in our room. So he opened it (everything fell out onto the floor except for the book) and he looked at the book very confused. Then he asked me if I was pregnant and I told him to read his card (I made a card that said "Its your fault" on the front, and "Congrtulations Dad - Your Swimmers Still Work" on the inside). So he read it and was very excited and called all of his family members (his mom was happy, but she kept calling him a few days afterwards to tell him we needed to go to the justice of the peace - were getting married on the beach in Destin in June, does it really matter?!!?. So anyway, thats all that happened and were pretty excited!

There is always advertising! :) Take him to the movies and have it on the big screen! That would be sooooo cute!
I like the extra place setting at the table too! Or just putting a rattle or something baby related next to his place setting for dinner...

Ahhh that is so awesome!

Let us all know!

My two personal favorites were putting my youngest daughter in a shirt that said "I'm the big sister" when I found out I was pregnant. I also liked the idea that I saw on an episode of Judging Amy. The wife bought a newborn onsie and put it in a gift bag and gave it to her husband. It was a simple, cute idea that got the point across. Congratulations!

I just found out I am pregnant too! We told the grandparents with one of those "I'm the big sister!" shirts. You can buy one right now at babies r us in Olathe--we did. Congrats!

candle light dinner and buy a card write your daddy with what ever he like put a blanket on the floor and tell him the most romace way ever

Not sure if you already told your husband, but you could take him to dinner, wrap a pregnancy test in something or a gift bag. At dinner, excuse yourself, find your waitress and give the wrapped gift to her and have her bring it out for dessert. (you may want to just wrap a baby item)

When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I sent my husband a huge cookie and balloon bouquet at work with "Congratulations, you're going to be a Daddy!" on the cookies. The cookies were in the shapes of pacifiers and rattles. Very cute and everyone in his department at work celebrated with him! He loved it.

I saw on a baby show once, this couple was having twins so they wrapped up a jar of baby food and a packet of Double Mint gum and gave it to their moms. You could do something along that line.....

First, congrats on the big news!!!This is a neat idea I always thought was cute that my friend used w/ her husband when she wanted to tell him the big news!! She went and purchased a silver plated rattle(which you could chose anything baby related) and card stating the big news and wrapped it in a box,then she went to the UPS store and had the package shipped to thier home in his name. When he opened the package after coming home one night-- he got a big surprise!! The best part is who would of expected that!! They kept the rattle for memory sake and to eventually give to thier child.Hope this idea helps!!

R., what about a scavenger hunt, place bottles, pacifiers, i love my daddy bib, and give him a card that says the delivery will be on and put the due date you could make your card on the computer if you have one. something like that. go get the book what to expect when your expecting and sit down next to him and read it, read it at the table during dinner all tell he notices it. hope this helps. ps a note in his car or in his lunch. have his boss call him in for an important meeting (very serious he done something wrong ) anf then you be there also. stuff your clothes to appear you are pregnant and ask him if he likes this look. just throwing you ideas. hope one helps W.

I never could think of any creative way to tell my husband, but we told his mom one time by putting our daughter in a shirt that said "Big sister". You can buy iron-on paper at Walmart and use a greeting card program to create a transfer that will print backwards for ironing on. Have fun and congrats! I just found out I'm pregnant again too..lol. Must be in the water. ;)

I set an extra setting at the dinner table and bought my son a t-shirt that said "I'm the big brother". I thought it was cute and it was extra special to include big brother in the BIG Secret!!

For our first child, I got my husband a Hallmark card (they really do have cards on almost every subject) that said Happy Daddying! Just know you'll be great at it.
He stared at that card for what seemed like forever. Like he knew what it said but was having a hard time contemplating the words. Another child we had, I had baby carrots, baby corn, baby back ribs... he finally caught the theme... it took awhile!
And on yet another one, I had a cake decorated with baby booties all over it and asked him if he wanted dessert after supper that night. When I brought out the cake, the first thing he asked was if I got the cake at a clearance price or if I actually ordered it like that. It was funny.

Get a white T shirt for your older daughter and paint "big sister" on the front with puffy paint and see how long it takes him to notice what's on the shirt. My SIL did that and he didn't notice for I think over an hour... I see a couple of other people had the same advice, but it really is a great idea!

a dilema w the dress?u mean wearing white? i was 5 months preg on our wedding day n i wore white but then again we didnt know i was knocked up ;p,we had an idead but everything came back negative

how about waiting till fathers day!!!!
hes not going to expect anything so getting something will be a HUGE surprise

When I found out that I was expecting again I went to a craft store and got some of that fabric paint that you can write on clothes with and made our daughter a tee shirt that said BIG SISTER on it and had it on her when my husband got home from work, it took him a minute to put two and two together but when he did he was happy and shocked but this was fun and it got our other daughter involed in the big news too. Anyway congratulations on your new blessing.

A friend of mine took a picture of the positive pregnancy test, framed it, wrapped it up and gave it as a gift to her parents.

When I found out I was pregnant the first time, I got a mug that said "Dynamite Dad". My hubby's a big coffee drinker, so I made him a cup of coffee that morning and put it in that mug. It took him a little bit to realize the mug, but then he was very excited!!
