  • Okay ladies I have a question for you all and I would really love your in put it in on it
    ...... So how did you ladies tell your SO that you are pregnant
    ? I dont know if I told you guys that U finally started talking to mine after a while of us having some time apart were talking
    . I dont want to tell him over the phone that I am pregnant I just feel that it would be really inpersonal to do it that way
    . I was suppose to see him today but i have had cold for the past week and yesterday I went to the beach with my family and got into an air conditioned house and felt worse this morning
    ...... so any who we are seeing each other sometime this week and I want to think of a way to tell him, not just some oh hey im pregnant.... Im really truley in love with him and I know that he loves me oh so much!!!!! this will be his first child and I want the news of it to be special....... Seeing that I already have a little girl that hes nuts about i know he'll be a good to the baby but I just wanna welcome his first news of fatherhood in a fun interesting and cheerful way
    any ideas girls? thank you so much

    and please keep me in your prayers that everything from a job to the news of the baby for him goes smoothley and in a peacefull happy manner!

    Oh my first baby was so unromantic. DH comes home from work and I was already home from work. I said, "so, I peed on a stick today" and he totally didn't get it and I had to explain.
Thank you Laurie!

  • We told my dad by putting the positive test in a gift bag. He was very confused but eventually understood.

    My DH has always been with me when I've tested so it's been no secret with him.

    With our second, we made a video that we sent online to everyone in the family. You can see that video here:

    This time around, Charlotte told everyone "Mommy has a baby in her belly."
Thank you Dopey406!
