Just curious. Just found out I'm pregnant baby number 4 and I'm sure it's going to be a big shock for hubby as it was to me. I want to make it special to tell him. Any ideas.

What can I do next?

You could tell him like I told my best friend. " you are never going to guess what happened,someone broke into the doctors office and killed my rabbit".
My friend just freaked out when I told her. My hubby and I had been trying for a year and a half to get pregnant.

Our second was a surprise, to say the least. I called him at work crying a freeaking out. Our first born was only 9 months old! I was so hysterical, he asked me if my mom died. I said, no I'm pregnant! And he said, cool :-)

Hubby knew before I did. I had not noticed I had not had my "visit" yet we were super busy and I had just started a new job. It was the day before Thanksgiving and I looked at him and said I dont think Ive had my period yet, he said I know I bought you a test go take it. I did and I dont think 4 sec went by and it was positive. so you answer your ? hubby told me. lol

CONGRATS!! My husband and I tried... once... and a month later, I woke up 3 hours before him (I left for work first and didn't see him in the morning), peed on a stick, was like OMG it's positive, but I didn't tell him.

All day he emailed me, asking if I was okay. That's not like him... I knew he didn't know because I took the test and box with me to work. I got home after he did, and first thing he said: 'YOU'RE PREGNANT, AREN'T YOU?!'... He just KNEW ;)

Sent him a pink and blue flower arrangement. He was in the field with his unit... He was at dinner, the foodservice crew brought it in for me, and after he ate, they asked him to help them with a special delivery... the arrangement... He called me from the field, excited, and very well teased... The men all congratulated me, when they came from the field. He ran up and kissed me, telling me that he was so happy! His friend had taken a picture of his face... He had the best doe eyes, and our daughter has the same ones...

number one was a frantic phone call about how that wasnt suppose to happen, and what should I do?
Number 2 I waited till he came home, made a huge meal, snuggled with him and number 1 and said, wouldnt it be great to add another... he said "not yet" and I said, too late!
Number 3, watching TV started bawling, said I dont know but I think I am pregnant. He laughed he thought I was crazy. He said go get a test to be sure, I say I have 4 days yet till my period. He laughed again and said then its not possible, I said OH yes it is, I FEEL pregnant. So he went to Walgreens and bought a early response test, I took it and it was BLARINGLY positive. I BAWLED for 2 days cause I found out a week before my 1 year old was going to turn 2. AHHH If number 4 ever happened I think the world will end. Thats why I am getting spayed in Jan. LOL

DARN IT I FORGOT MY IDEA: anyway I would wrap the pee stick in a zip lock and then wrap it in christmas paper, when he gets home give him an "early gift" say its not much but it will amount to something bigger later... be all sweet and kissy. When he opens it be like "OMG RIGHT like isnt it the COOOLEST way to go big guy" that kind of thing it might lessen the shock

Congratulations!!!!!!

I made my husband a "newspaper" to read at work. It had stories of what we had done over the weekend, a "Dear Abby"-type column, hand-drawn "comic", etc...and the last page was a cryptoquip (you know, where each letter stands for a different letter and he had to try to figure out what the real message was.) It was something about having a positive pregnancy test. :) Now we can save it to remember all that was going on in our lives when we found out we were pregnant. :)

Make the kids big brother/big sister tshirts and wait for him to notice. I always thought that would be cute, but my hubby was in the next room waiting each time I took a test.

If he isn't expecting #4 then it probably will stress him out. I say just blurt it out when he gets home from work. I'm not sure there is a special way to say, hey we need to make more money for another precious child! In fact maybe that's how you could word it.

We were shopping in a mall before christmas, I wrapped three things and I gave him a choice of three things for his "early christmas present." I wrapped a card saying something like "Going to be a new dad", a bootie and a test that i took earlier that morning. He opened the test and gave me the biggest and best hug ever! Even years after my divorce i still remember that precious moment, she is 8 now. His oldest daughter looked at it and she said "why did she get you a thermometer?" We just laughed.

Act like you're serving him dinner. Have a plate on the table covered with a lid and put the positive test by itself on the plate. Good luck!

One of the times, I went to my husband's work, and filled the inside of his car with baby items. I hung little baby booties from the rear view mirror, put a rattle on the seat, etc. Another time, I made a sign for him that said, "Oh, boy! ...or girl" I'm trying to remember the many ways I've told him. I've asked him how a particular month looks on his schedule (month that the baby is due). It takes him awhile, but I think my little grin gives it away. I just can't contain myself. Now, I just blurt it out. LOL It just shocks and thrills us so much. I'm mid-40s, so it just is such a surprise and blessing to us.
