How did you tell your husband/SO?
I know there is already a thread about ways to tell people you are pregnant, but I'm curious how people told their baby's father/husband/significant other. I know I will tell my husband and family/friends in different ways, so just curious to see what other people out there did or are planning to do!!

Yay just what i have been planing and thinking about! Looking forward to other ppls ideas
ah well i actually have a couple of plans (not pregnant yet but trying) and really not sure which one to pick so maybe ppl can tell me which one you like?
Option 1- hubby gets home i announce i bought him some new clothes- let him open package with cute baby onsie saying "I love my Daddy"- let that sink in
Option 2- First a back story- i proposed to my partner on the leap year i carefully cutt open a kinder surprise removed the toy and replaced with a cheap looking engagement ring and a note asking him to marry me- resealed and packaged like it was never touched- announce to partner I bought a treat (his fav chocolate)- waited until after dinner for partner to eat kinder surprise for desert - que surprise. Same premise but replace toy with small baby and note saying "Your going to be a Daddy!"
Option 3- get a t-shirt that has an image of a bun in the oven- wear it around the house to see how long it takes him to work it out- or something similar
So which one should i pick or does anyone have alternate ideas?

The first time I was too excited I just blurted it out. Next time I think I'll put a "big sister" shirt on our little one and see how long it takes him to notice."Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes."

I posted in the other similar thread about going to a photo booth and showing my husband the positive pregnancy test right before all the pics start snapping. It's a great idea (I found it on Pinterest) but I just discovered that the only photo booth I know of near us has been removed So unless another one pops up within the next couple months I'll have to find another plan.
@bettydogooder- I agree with @sodallas3, option number two seems more personal for you and your husband, so I'd probably go with that for you.
I like the other two options too though! My husband doesn't like it when I buy him clothes tho (he always returns them or they just sit in the back of the closet), so I don't know if me buying him a shirt or something as a surprise would be too much of a dead giveaway that something big was going on.
Hmmm... I'll have to see what other people say to see....
