Default When you get/got your bfp...

How did you/will you tell your dh/so? How did you tell your family?

Everyone, whether you are ttc or not--- let's hear your stories!

I don't really have any good stories. I have absolutely no ability to keep a secret like that from dh, so when I got my first bfp, I just told him. Our parents all knew we were ttc because of the way we have to, so we just told them too.

I did tell my class the first time around in a special way. I had an ELMO machine (a desktop presenter) and after my 12 week u/s I put the pic up on the tv screen and said... "Do you know what this is???" They were *really* excited. With Matthew I was already showing by the time school started so there was no secret there.

This time around... I have another plan. For DH... I don't know yet. But I want to get the boys T-Shirts made that have their names and on Josh's it'll say "I'm the biggest brother" and on Matthew's it'll say "I'm the big brother." The family's over often so I'd love to have the boys run out in their t-shirts and see how long it took for them to figure it out.

Well I dont have any good stories either for the first two but if I am fortuate to get preg again and it just so happened to be in Jan which I am sooooo hoping for I think I will tell DH when we take a mini vacation together(just us) to Gatlinburg, TN. That just so happens to be my birthday weekend to, but I guess that all depends on if its Jan. I will prob do like Jeanne and get Tshirts for the boys and have my entire family over for dinner and put the boys shirts on after we eat and see how long it takes for them to notice. Knowing our family I would have to point it out to them LOL

I have no exciting story either. Family knew we were ttc and I told dh as soon as I came out of the bathroom with the bfp.

Well first was unplaned and just told dh andlet him tell his family...Sadly my pg experiences were sorta robbed from me the joy ur suppose to feel. Dh had 2 kids so his parents would always say u dont need anymore 2 is enough. Then after my son they said that was enough and so on. So w/ my daughter I told dh I dont wanna hear what any1 says no one is taking this from me.. I wrote a note to the kids put it in a book and when i picked them up from school i asked them to hand me the paper in book knowing they would read it and said congratulations on your new baby ?? They were excited.
