What are some fun ways I can tell my husband I am pregnant

I just found out that we are expecting another baby. We have a 6 and 7 year old (One of each) I have not told my husband yet but wanted some good/fun ways to tell him and the kids when we are ready to tell the kids.

take a hamburger bun and put it in the oven. tell him to open up the oven – bun in the oven!!

Poem: Roses are red, violets are blue. Babies are sweet and so are you. Gifted with baby shoes, pacifier, or other baby item.

Have him face the wall with a piece of paper taped to the wall. Then you tape a piece of paper on his back and then tell him to guess the letters you are writing on his back. And write, I’m pregnant on his back (on the piece of paper) :slightly_smiling_face:

Congratulations with dad it might be fun to tell everyone by having the three (your husband son and daughter) all get together for a “picture” obviously a video, and then instead of telling them to say cheese tell them to say mommies going to have a baby lol I think it would be funny to have them all put it together

Pinterest has Alot of good ideas

You can do a dinner with baby back ribs, baby potatoes, the little tiny baby corn (like you would put in stir fry)and baby bunt cakes or baby ice cream cones.

Have the two older ones pose with your husband for a father’s day picture. Have them to hold up signs behind him so he can’t see announcing the baby. Once you take the picture turn your phone/camera where like you want to show him how good the picture is. Would also be a good way to announce to everyone else as well…lol

I put a pregnancy announcement box together and then took him wherever he wanted to go eat, told him I have a gift and then gave it to him.

And in the bracelet box are my pregnancy tests.

If you have any cop friends make them pull you over and say you’re missing a car seat for the kid and then he gives hubby the ultrasound/positive test

My sister and her husband made a deal. When she got pregnant, he said he would shave his beard. So when she found out, she made a little gift bag with shaving stuff and the pregnancy test. Maybe you could do something like that.

Since you said a fun way to tell him and the kids it made me think of the way we told our kids. You can set up a scavenger hunt for the kids and have dad there to help and at the end all 3 will be surprised. We put little poems with a clue. The first clue I said girls come look someone left a note for you in the bird house and it led them to the next clue where they found a pacifier with the next clue and so on. It was really fun!
Congratulations!

Buy him a gender-neutral onesie that says my daddy loves me or I love my daddy something like that and wrap it up and give it to him as a gift maybe even wrap up the pregnancy test in the onesie.

Leave a bun in the oven? 🤷😂

If you know the gender Do a gender reveal Like a cake blue or pink let him open the box put a wee baby figurine on the cake for dessert.

Just get the other two hyped up about it and wait for then to start talking about it.

Love this idea!! I have seen it done and it seems like such a perfect surprise

I took my oldest son shopping and casually stopped in the baby section to get a neutral baby outfit. It was then placed in the bags with the groceries and I made my son in charge of that bag and I instructed him to ask his father a question when all the groceries were put away . He needed to take it to hubbyy and ask " Dad where does this go? I dont know where to put this". The look was priceless!

Have him read a bedtime book to the kids. In the middle put a post it that says “were having a baby”.

Give him pictures of the kids inside a DAD frame. Put your u/s pic or a note that says “to filled xx/xx/xxxx” (your due date).

Ask him to make you a weird sandwich or a food you craved with the others. (my ex new I was pg when I started begging for chocolate)

All these ideas would be good for father’s day that’s coming up

A shirt for dad that says on front, Dad of the year - on back Father of three. For the kids the oldest gets a shirt that says Best oldest sibling of 3 , the younger siblings shirt says Best middle child, then get a onesie that says Best Youngest sibling.

When we found out we were pregnant with our second, my son was just about to turn 8 so we got him a big brother t-shirt and said we were taking him somewhere special as an early birthday present. We took him to the ultrasound lol and gave him the shirt right before we went in. I had the first ultrasound at 8 weeks and then one at 10 weeks so we waited until that second one just to make sure everything was okay before telling him because I’ve had 4 miscarriages in the past. As far as the husband I have no idea really, mine was with me when I took the test and gave me a high five :joy:🤦

I told my husband about our second child by putting pink and blue balloons and the test in a box and setting it on our table. Set up the video camera. When the time was right, I told him to look through the box ‘of old stuff’ before I donate it. He opened it and the balloons popped out - perfect surprise.

He liked it so much, we called his mom over and pulled the same trick on her.

Just have a conversation with one of your friends in front of him and nonchalantly talk about how you have three kids. I would play with it and make small comments till he figures it out.

Do a fathers day family pic and have you and hubby stand on one side then the kids on the other for one of them. The add a plus sign between you guys and equals 5. Frame and wrap it to give on fathers day!!! Then you guys can tell the kids later! I love the ones where people give the big sibling a shirt that says “bigger sibling” and the younger one a shirt that says “big sibling”

When your husband comes home from work, ask him and your other children to have a seat at the table. Ask them if they would like to have a family discussions about something off the wall. Then slowly start talking about having extra duties of redecorating, adding a crib, and finding where to put the crib. See if they get the idea, if not tell them that you will discuss it further after a dinner. Fix everything that has baby in the food. They might get the idea after you keep saying baby this and baby that.

None of the times I told my ex husband I was pregnant were cute or planned out but I had intended on having my girls both wear big sister shirts to see if he caught on. Unfortunately, by some very weird coincidence, the day I found out I was pregnant my middle daughter randomly announced “I’m getting a baby brother.” My oldest and my ex husband looked at me and I said “well I’m pregnant but I don’t know if it’ll be a boy…” Lol. My ex husband was excited about it so I don’t know maybe that worked out.

Make your kids wear a shirt telling him that you are pregnant. For example your oldest one could wear a t shirt saying I am getting ANOther brother/ sister. And have your youngest one wearing a t shirt saying…I am not the baby anymore. Somethime along that line.

When my little brother’s girlfriend was pregnant he came home and simply asked if I wanted a niece or nephew. I was in shock but found it hilarious after the fact.

A scavenger hunt of some kind would be fun. I also like the idea of making a meal themed with “baby”…like baby back ribs, baby carrots, etc and see if he can figure out the theme.

I gave my husband a tiny piece of rice in his hand and asked if he knew what it was. He said “um, rice?” I replied “Yes and that’s about the size of our baby right now”. He was shook lol.

My best friend’s wife got him a Father’s Day card (for their first pregnancy) and put a picture of a baby in it. Pretty funny because that’s what she did with baby #2. After that he was afraid to open Father’s Day cards. BTW they have 6 now.

Serve a dinner with everything baby-related: baby peas, baby carrots, etc… and emphasize the word “baby” as you serve each item

I video recorded mine reading a card out loud and I placed 2 positive tests in a little bag with sticky notes stating congrats and heres to the next exciting chapter. Play around with it

One time I sent my son (2) in while he was just waking up and told him take it (test) to daddy. Just let him try to register it while barely awake.
Another I put the test in an amazon box and told him our son had broken one of my husband’s old transformers. Nice little emotional swing there. Nothing too Pinterest worthy lol

I have a scratch off lottery ticket that will say “we’re having a baby” once it’s scratched. I’m saving them for when I can finally give it to him. I got them on amazon :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

What I always wanted to do was get a jewelry box with the test inside it. There’s also a customized book you can get for new fathers. I wanted that too. Have him read the book first before opening the test. It never works out for me though because I always get extremely sick and he goes to the dr with me so it ruins the surprise LOL

I done all my family a Christmas card of the scan picture so maybe a Father’s Day card? X

U would make t shirts for the kids that have oldest child and middle child on them for the kids to wear and see how long it took him to notice :laughing:

Take family pictures and have the kids holding a sign that says expecting with the month and year. Try and make sure he doesnt see the sign. Then give the picture to him in a frame for fathers day.

Perfect timing its father’s day coming up. Get a card that says father of 3 … or write in it u are the best father to our 2 kids and I know ur going to be great with our 3rd . Where a shirt that says bun in the oven see how long it takes to notice it lol

My sons dad was at work when I found out I text him saying pink or blue lol

Gave a little box and write on the top of the lid " Choose wisely" and inside put little cards with “dad”,“daddy”, “pa”, “papa” ect

Your brave. Mine are 6 and 7 one of each also ( they are 11 months apart ) the same age for approx 2 weeks in the year. I could’ve go through all that again lol

I put a bunch of baby items, shoes, rattle etc in a box and gave it to him.

Give him a piece of Hershesys chocolate and color in the HE (BLUE) or SHE (PINK)

Make spaghetti and leave a jar of prego out ! Then have a baby bib at his chair,

Do a scavenger hunt but nothing to give it away until the end. Maybe set something up for fathers day and the end is ready to be a daddy again.

If u have a group of family pictures put a pic of the ultrasound in there. See how long it takes him to notice. Careful tho. U might get upset at how long.

You could make a diy scratch off that says something like daddy to three

I gave my test wrapped up in a gift box on his birthday… my boy n me kept it frm him for a whole mth…:rofl::rofl::rofl:

For my last 1, that was his bday present, told him on his bday, after I took more then 1 test, cuz I didnt believe it…lol
