Have you thought of any unique/special ways to tell your SO when you get a positive result? Or what have you seen done that you think is cute? I'm trying to think of a perfect way to tell DH when the day actually comes

well if I get my BFP this month I am hoping I will get before Fathers Day and wrap up the test I think it would be the best gift. I cant wait to see what others will do.

No, it's not getting ahead of yourself
I've been thinking about this since we decided to officially start TTC
I'm not 100% sure of how I'll tell DH. We conceived DD by surprise, and it was a text saying "We need to talk".
So this time I want to do something special, like have DD wearing her "Big Sister" t-shirt when he comes home from work with a nice dinner and a card with the test or something.
Ugh. I dunno

I'll be the boring one
We're going to test together, I want him to see the + (when I get it) at the same exact time as me, so we can live it together.
He's sorta following my cycle and asking lots of questions. He even asks to see my chart. I have to explain it all, but he's really interested. So, I'd never be able to hide it very long.

I have no idea what I'll do. I normally call him at work immediately. lol Every time. If this is the cycle, I'll definitely find some way to do it on father's day.

My DH will likely be there when I test as well. That is what we did with DS and it was such a special moment to share.

I have thought a lot about how we will tell family but I haven't decided on anything yet.

i've thought about this for the longest time!!! we might ok - more than likely will have to go through IVF - so I honestly don't know if that'll change my plans...BUT I bought a 3 pack of Chicago Cubs newborn onesies about 5 months ago...and I have them hidden where he'd never find them. I plan on giving him a present and telling him I have a "present" for him and giving those to him!

fyi, we are huge chicago cubs fans.

I said I'd do it on Father's Day, but my husband told me a little while ago he found out about Alice on that day in 07. lol I was 8 weeks along and didn't know it. He said if I am this time, don't spill the beans till Sunday.

I wish I had someone to share it with but since my situation is so much different I'll probably share it with my BFF would will be the GodMother.

If I "DID" have someone to share it with I would suggest a "toast" but say I had to have "sparkling cider"...see if he could "guess" on his own...

My DH also shows a lot of interest and asks to see my chart EVERY DAY! Lol. He actually seems to understand everything, I only explain it once, he looks up a lot on his own. It's very sweet. I think he would like to test with me, but I want to tell him in a more special way. I'm not sure I could get the test as a BFP by Father's Day, but if yes, that would be special

if i get my bfp before father day im going to die keeping it a secret but what i would do is this:
Use An empty box from tampons and put the test inside with a note saying guess i wont be needing these. and wrap the box i think hed die of laughter

F.Y.I He usually has to pick them up that why it would be unique to us lol
