Re: how did you tell your husband?

We went out the day I POAS and I parked in the expectant mothers parking spot. It only took him a second to get it. First he told me it was an expectant mothers spot thinking I didn't realize, and when I said I know he figured it out.

I would have loved to do something creative, but with DD we had been trying for 2 years and it was the second cycle I actually ovulated so I told him I was going to test. I apparently was in there a while (I had to take a second test because the line was so faint and I didn't believe it) so he came to check on me. We then did the digital test together in the bathroom and cried together.
Baby#2 was a surprise, I told dh I was late and asked him when he thought I should test, we decided to spare my sanity and do it asap. I took the test and ran out emidiatly to show him. I can not keep a secret for the life of me, and I'm just too excited! ! Same goes for grandparents, I always have plans to be creative and just end up blurting it out. Lol

Re: how did you tell your husband?

With baby #1 I was shocked and started crying and showed him the test. With baby #2 I had dd hand him the test. With baby #3 I taped a sign to my shirt that said "no vacancy." I walked up to him and lifted up my sweat shirt to reveal the sign.

Re: how did you tell your husband?

With #1 we were both there hovering over the test when I took it

With #2 he was in the other room. I was in stock myself. I came in the other room, sat down with the test in hand, and said "I'm pregnant."
Real creative, right?

Omg he cried like baby!! That is so cute! Was it his 1st baby and your 3rd or did he cry like a baby with all 3 pregnancy reveals?
