Disneyland Reveal for those who asked — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Disneyland Reveal for those who asked

I know it's NTTGPR, not really, but many of you who commented on my BFP post asked me to share how I ended up telling DH at Disneyland that we are pregnant, so I figured this is the place to do it.

I ended up having my SIL help me plan things and it took a lot of distraction, but what I ended up doing was taking him back to where he proposed to me, sort of recreating some of those memories. Back in 2009, we got engaged on the bridge in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle, and shortly after that we went to the shop and picked out matching ear hats that said "Just Engaged" on the back, with the date. So I decided the best thing to do would be to take him to the spot and give him a baby-sized ear hat embroidered with "Baby (our last name)" and then underneath that, "November 2012." He was definitely surprised & he is so excited! I guess he didn't expect for it to happen as quickly as it did. He had his typical shocked face, then he just stared at me, asking if I was really pregnant. Then he cried!!! Here are some reaction photos.




From that point on, he wouldn't let me go on any rough rides (which I had decided in advance not to do, but he had said I was being a little paranoid before he knew I was pregnant) and whenever I took a small sip of Coke from his cup at lunch, he'd take the cup away and say, "That's my baby, so no caffeine for you!" Also, every time an announcer at a ride would say "and please watch your children," he'd point to my belly and say, "I have to watch my child!!" LOL

Anyway, since tomorrow I'll be 4 weeks, I guess I'll be heading over to the Nov 2012 boards. But I'll miss you ladies! (I'll definitely keep lurking, if that's ok!!) Hope you all get those BFPs very soon!

    Very cute.  I love his face in the first picture.

    Who did you get to take the pictures?

    Thank you! Because my SIL was in on it, I handed her my camera as we approached the bridge.

    The funny thing is, that DH is VERY oblivious. I did a ton of planning and hid all my pee sticks where he would never look. I told him ahead of time that I wouldn't be riding the rides because I just wanted to be safe, "just in case." I had him go get fast passes for a ride while his SIL and I bought the hat and begged him to wait in line with me to take pictures with Mickey b/c the hat wasn't done yet. I made him go get a Churro for me (I must have seemed very needy) so that SIL could go pick up the hat and then she told him that it was just a gift for her friend and blew it off so he wouldn't ask her to show him what was in the bag. All this worrying and planning and hoping he wouldn't find out. When I told him after the fact what we had put into it, he was very surprised and had not suspected a thing. Smile

    Thank you, ladies!

    We did pick up a red onesie at the shops that says 2012 and then the year is surrounded by a bunch of characters. We are using that to tell DH's family tomorrow. I want to tell my family soon but my sister is currently in the hospital as of last night, for gallbladder issues, and I just don't think it's the right time to barge in with my news when she is dealing with this problem.
