C0602t:I've always just kind of pictured myself testing without him knowing, but while he is home, and bursting through the bathroom door with the stick in my hand screaming like a wild woman!
That's kind of how it went with us the first time. I ran out of the bathroom in the morning and ran up to him as he was coming up the stairs waving the test saying, "look, 2 lines!". He was squinting in the dark saying, "what? where?"

I found out that I was pregnant with our son at 5:00 am the morning after receiving our poor SA results & our referral to a urologist & RE. I basically took the test because I was in denial that we were facing IF. I was shocked & woke my husband up screaming from the bathroom. It was an unforgettable moment.
Since we have been trying 8 cycles for baby #2 with no luck, I am sure that I will be equally shocked and excited, so I am sure I will just tell him asap. I plan to tell our immediate family by dressing my son in a big brother shirt and seeing how long it takes for them to notice.

I bought a onesie when we first started TTC that says, "Baby Makes Three" with three little ducks on it. My plan was to wrap that up and give it to him, but I bought it almost 2 years ago, and I can't remember where I hid it.
elizabethb3:I came up with this last cycle when I had convinced myself that I might need a plan quick. I'm always nagging DH to put his dirty socks in the hamper and not leave them all over the bedroom floor. So I bought two pairs of teeny tiny baby socks, and I'm planning on scattering them on the floor next to the bed. Then waking him up or bringing him into the bedroom by telling him he needs to pick up his socks. I can't wait! :)
That is a super cute idea :)
douglamj:We are TTC #1 and I bought a dog collar that says "Big Sister" for our Boxer to prance around in until he notices! :)
I love this bc we have two pups and a kitty that are definitely our first three "children." Although, I don't think I could wait until he noticed. I'd be all giggly and smiley and he'd know something was up!

Thanks! I was pretty proud of myself when I came up with it in the baby section of Target! Ha ha!

With our first we were on our way to dinner with friends and I wanted to test just in case so I could drink. It turned positive on our way there in the car. We were both in complete shock and could barely talk to our friends during dinner.
This next time I was planning on just telling him but I found this cute Big Sister shirt so I'll put our daughter in it and see if he notices. He probably won't notice so I'll see how long his day goes before picking up on it.

I also love this idea! So cute!
One of DS's many nicknames is porkchop. My DH started this not long after he was born because he was a pretty big baby. I thought about having DS give him two toy "porkchops" (if they have them in the toy groceries) and reveal we have another coming.
With that being said, I'm sure I will not be able to put all that together and just want to tell him so badly! So probably shove the stick in his face again like I did the first time. haha!
I think I was pretty creative with my first one, I gave him a onesie with the digi wrapped in it
The second, I'll probably just run in the room and shout. LOL
"Babe, I'm pregnant."

I decided before we were even married that if we ever got pregnant I would ask him to dance with me to the Creed song "With Arms Wide Open". DH has always been a big Creed fan and this song was written when the singer found out he was going to be a father. IF DH can't figure out the significance I'll probably start crying and just blurt it out but I want that song playing.
Or I may just freak out and wave a pee stick at him and then get upset for forgetting about the song and try to redo it. *ponders* Ya that sounds more like me.
teal owl:"Babe, I'm pregnant."
We are currently TTC #1 and I know want to do something special when we get pregnant.
My husband isn't an "over the top" kind of guy and we aren't going to be telling anyone (families included) that we are pregnant till week 10-12 -- so, however I tell him had to be low key and only with him around.
I spent a lot of time thinking about how I would tell him. I finally came up with my "plan". Once I get a positive test -- if I can keep my excitement hidden and my mouth shut -- I will just go about my day like normal. He works from 2 pm until 10 pm, so I plan to wait until he is home from work and we are doing our normal routine -- relaxing and watching TV before we go to bed. Then I created a picture that I am going to text him to tell him.
Here is the picture I created:
