OT: how to announce 3rd pregnancy to hubby
Hey all, this is really ot and I haven't posted in a while-though I've been here. I just got a positive pregnancy test this morning! We weren't trying and I'm not sure how my hubby will take it: he was happy with two. anyway I'm trying to figure out how to announce it to him. Any ideas?

You could put the youngest one in a "I'm the big brother/sister" tshirt and see how long it takes for him to notice!

I am sure he will take it fine...Babies are a wonderful thing! Congratulations!

Congratulations! :D

Um, you could leave the test lying around where he'll see it... I like the 'big brother/sister' idea too, though. Or you could just make some sly comment like "Hey, could you pick up some diapers on your way home?" (of course that only works if your other two are out of diapers... but you know what I mean).

When I got a positive test for my second, I put it one of his socks (he used to change from dark work socks to white sweat socks every day when he came home from work.)

For my third, I went with the "Big brothers" t-shirts.

For the 4th I waited two weeks so I could give him a homemade father's day card that said "For fatther's day I just wanted to let you know...you're going to be a daddy again"

We found out about our second before Easter and told my In-laws with a stuffed chick "from their grandson" and an Easter egg "from their next grandbaby"

My oldest son announced the news of our 4th to family on his 4th birthday when he opened a present with a picture of the ultrasound (prearranged, of course."

We're all done now (although I wanted 2 more) but it's still fun to think of ways to tell people...

What was one of the foods that you craved during your other pregnancies? Something unusual?

Maybe you could ask him to bring home some of whatever that is. Maybe he'll get the hint.

LOL What about a baby themed dinner. I saw it on a TV show a long time ago...


For dinner she served baby back ribs, baby lima beans and little baby ears of corn. Then she asked him if his dinner was trying to tell him something. LOL He didn't notice the them until he verbally said all the food items. It was cute.

Or what about writing it on a cake, or in a card. "When we had our first I thought you were a great daddy. When we had our second I realized you were twice as great as I originally thought. Well... this morning confirmed that you are 3 times the father you used to be. You just keep getting better."

I saw that tv show, full house. But I really like the cake/card idea. Until I read your note I had a picture of my older two that said, we love you daddy... and then folded behind that pic is a pic of the preg. test and it sayd ... all 3 of us.
