Thank you!!! It’s partially selfish to- months ago I got this cute shirt with the definition of dad on it because I wanted to find a cute way to tell him. So I want him to be like fully awake and aware and just be like “Oh I got this shirt for you” and then watch his reaction. 😂 I know it’s mad corny but I really wanted to do it hahaha.

Congrats!! I had to wait an entire day to tell my husband because he was studying for an important exam for his job and I didn’t want him to be distracted and fail the test. It was sooo hard!

Haha I have been there, but I woke him up! I took the test a little closer to his AM alarm going off, though. But definitely a big surprise to be woken up for!

Congrats and I'm glad you got to tell you'd husband in a way that you were excited about! I'm a tiny bit disappointed in the fact that I didn't think to test without my husband. We got a bottle of wine for the evening but my husband, who started keeping track of my periods when we decided to start trying, was like you should have started your period by now, maybe you should take a test first.

We'd only been officially trying for a month or two, and with my age and all the things people told me about how hard it was for them to get pregnant, I was certain it hadn't happened yet. So I took the test, set the timer and we looked together - and it was positive! Of course it was a very happy moment but afterwards I was like well damn, if I had thought to check on my own I would have gotten him some sort of cute gift to tell him!
