DH should be home around 6pm EST. My Mom is picking him up at the airport and then she is bringing him to her house. I will be cooking dinner for him there, steaks etc...My step Dad is going to set up a video camera to attempt an capture DH's reaction to the ultrasound pics. I don't have anything fancy planned, I am just going to let him look at the US pics and see how long it takes him to figure it out. I want to get a pure reaction out of him!
So all went very well, actually much better then I expected! I gave DH the US pics and he started off by looking at the individual pics of the babies, but they are labelled
Baby A/Baby B. I could not believe that it only took him about 15 sec to realize what he was looking at! He looked up at me with his mouth wide open and a blank stare and said "2"?! I said "yes"... he looked back down and flipped thru the remainder of the pics not saying a word...he was speechless (which never happens)! After about a min or so, he gave me a kiss and said it will be OK, we will make this work and then said "God really has a sense of humor" I can't help but agree! All in all he was very calm, but I am sure that he will go thru phases with this just as I have. It felt so good to tell him!
*My Step Dad did get it on camera, but he has it at his house..sorry!
Erin. I don't know how you are holding this awesome news in.. I know I couldn't.. I am excited to hear of his reaction.

He might pass out! LOL
However, I am sure before he does a few choice words will leave his mouth!
I know that I had to bite my tongue to keep from saying a few myself!
Oh how exciting!! I agree there would be NO way I could keep news like that to myself, and if my hubby was away like that and I had something like that to share he'd pick up something wasn't right by my voice. If you can share his reaction, I'm sure he's gonna be extremely shocked!
Can't wait to hear all about it! I'm sure I would've had a few choice words to say if I saw two so we won't blame him
