Planning ahread- how to tell DH ....

So I am thinking ahead here.... we are TTC MAYBE december- but definitely January. I need something creative to tell him when I do get a BFP. Last time I had a Onesie made months ahead of time. Turned out good timing as I got my BFP 2 days after our anniversary. So I ended up wrapping up the onesie and meeting him at his work that I forgot to give him a small gift for our anniversary. it was awesome. But I am at a loss for this time around. Any ideas? What did you do for your other LOs ? I need something fun.

Get your son a big brother shirt, and give it to him while DH is there, you get two reveals with one shirt!

I'm still thinking about this one...I would like to do something special for #2 since DS was an OOPS.

I think it would be fun to incorporate your DS somehow. My friend attached the pee stick to a helium balloon and gave the ballon to her DD to give to her husband. Haha.

I put a rubber duck on my DH's nightstand (bc I call my husband duckman...long story) and wrote a note saying "baby duck coming soon." He woke up asking why there was a duck on his nightstand. Haha. Im cheesy.

Another friend gave her DH a onesie with "I love Daddy" written on it.

I did the onesie thing last time- with a picture of DHs show truck with the saying in that crayon writing "My daddy drives the All Nighter" (thats the name of the truck).
He wants to frame that by the way. LOL! I thought about the Tshirt thing, but kinda a been there done that thing. Hmm. I am truly stumped on baby #2 thoughts. I want to give him something I think so we have it. Keep the ideas going!
and Elizabeth the ducky is cute!

You could do another onesie, then frame them all nice you are done having babies, somethg that means something to your family and would look nice all framed up in the house. I just had a big brother shirt made for DS, it's bright green with a monkey on it which is cute because we call DS our monkey

Hmmm Wendy- that got me thinking. I know the original onesie is in a storage back, in a bin somewhere. I could always ask him to get them down so I can find it, frame it. then get another one made, similar to the original but maybe say a little something different and frame it from the get go....... Hmmmm I think that might be what I am looking for!!! YAY!!!!
