I am still sitting on the news I want to surprise him--possibly just putting the test next to his computer, a sure sign he'll see it, or maybe taking a picture and putting it on his computer

How did you tell?

he is the one that went and bought me my tests and i had told him I would be taking one that next morning. I woke him up at 1:30am and asked him if he wanted to come look. He didnt wake up fully so I pulled the covers off him and told him to go look

He came in and was "greeted" by the candy first and then in the living room was the test and picture frame. =) I found out at 8dpo but didnt tell him until 11dpo (he works out of town during the week.

It's father's day this Sunday so I bought him a big #1 dad glass with pictures and writing all over it, some baby singlets and bibs and wrapped them up in a gift bag for him. I also wrapped the frer and put it in there too. I bought him a father's day card and wrote about how even though it was a week early we didn't need a special day to tell him how amazing a dad he'll be. I surprised him with it at 6 in the morning because I figured the sun at least had to be up. I had been awake since 4 taking the frer and gathering the rest of the present items up and making a heck of a racket... I woke him up twice . Poor DH was squinting at the test with asleep eyes trying to make out where there were two lines

I think I am going to put it on his nightstand so he can see it before bed. I don't think I can wait all day tomorrow!

I walked out of the bathroom with the test in my hand and a shocked look on my face. I handed him the test.. That was as good as I got lol I wish I could have thought up some way to surprise him

Well, I told him. I left a note on his pillow saying "Surprise!" and then I put the test on it. I stood at the door talking to him for two whole minutes before he caught sight of it. He stopped mid-sentence and picked it up and said " does this mean what I think it does?"

He's been pretty happy, talking about all the plans in the next few months LOL

Well, it's not like ours was a surprise...DH knows I'm a HUGE POASer...so he asked how the testing was going and I said "good" and emailed him a picture...he wrote me back...I don't see it...is this bad? and so I had to put dots above and below the test line so he could see the line hehe....

Then today (he leaves for work at 4:30am) I did the same thing...he saw the FRER line right away and was confused by the CBE + sign haha...I had to explain it to him....he's super happy and knows the line is light for me at equivalent of 13dpo...but we are just taking it one day at a time and thankful for every day I am pregnant....

DH doesn't like me testing without him, but I did yesterday (because I wanted to join the gym and as my periods are really irregular I wanted to check before I signed up) When the line came up I was shocked, we were really not expecting it this month at all. I tried ringing him for half an hour but he didnt answer, when I finally got through I just said "I was naughty and did a test... I think we might be having another baby!"
I was so shocked he had to calm me down a lot. But he was lovely and we are both very happy and looking forward to it all.

I took a test early in the morning and kind of freaked out about how I was going to tell him.
Eventually I just laid back in bed and whispered to him that I had a bun in the oven. He was still half asleep and asked me 'what do you mean you have a bun?' And then suddenly his eyes popped open and he started smiling.
It was a nice little moment.
