How do you plan to tell DH/SO when you get you BFP?
I plan on telling him by either doing one of two things....
1. send a bunch of blue and pink balloons to work with some balloons saying its a girl and its a boy. With a cute daddy to be card attached
2. Put the test and some daddy baby clothes in a gift bag and give that to him
Every cycle I make up a new way to tell him... This month I'm going to set up a little romantic dinner in the trails that surround out property. I'm going to get a friend to light the candles and set the table. Then when the sun sets we'll take a nice walk and come across this super romantic table set for two. Seating/Place card will read Mommy and Daddy!
Hmmmmm in reality I'll probably run around the house with the HPT in my hand screaming !
I like your ideas...those sound so perfect ***sigh*** it's going to happen for us soon...right?
I'll put a baby bottle in the fridge with some milk in it. Then I'll just see how long it takes him to figure it out. Since there haven't been any babies in this house, and none of his family here has babies, there wouldn't be any reason for one in the fridge.
I'm still trying to come up with a really good idea, but about six months ago, when we first started ttc, I bought a "I love Daddy" bib that I plan on giving to him when I find out. Love the milk idea btw!

Do you want to learn how to stretch your dollars further?
As far as telling extended family goes.....one year, I sent out my Christmas cards, and signed them from me, my ex, my daughter, & BABY! About 4 days later when the first person got their card, my phone started ringing and didn't stop until they were all delivered! lol It worked out perfectly that time because I don't usually tell many people until I hit 3 months, and that year I was at 3 months about 2 weeks before Christmas.
