To present a message to her husband that he will soon become a pope, probably one of the most exciting moments. As however, and tell parents about this long–awaited addition to the family. As the author of the “Diary of a future mother” told about her pregnancy, read below.
Pregnancy was a welcome event for us, and two strips on the test caused a storm of emotions in me. But while my husband was at work, I recovered a little after a positive test result for pregnancy, and decided that I would not tell him the news that very evening. Why? Apparently, at that time I did not fully believe in all that was happening and was afraid that my two stripes would be a false–positive result.
Therefore, in advance to not reassure her husband, I decided to first confirm the pregnancy on ultrasound, and only then present my favorite pleasant surprise. In addition, the next day he had to go on an important business trip, and I knew that after such a news it would be very difficult for him to leave me alone for a few days.
With the pregnancy confirmed by the doctor (hurray!) I began to think how to tell my husband that we will have a baby. As I learned about my pregnancy in early February, I immediately had an idea to make a special gift for Valentine’s Day. It seemed to be the perfect time to report such wonderful news.
Ideas, how to tell her husband about pregnancy, was revised and re–read enough. Eyes scattered, and his hands and scratched immediately begin to implement: to buy balls, order a cake with the inscription “You’ll become a dad!” and arrange a real holiday for the two of us. Which two? Three!
The only thing that made adjustments to my plans – this is our trip to another city early in the morning on February 14. Therefore, after some thought, I chose a small gift, which is easy to take along on the road, and in the evening to present to my husband.
It was decided simply to pack the pregnancy test in the gift box, putting there the same ultrasound image of our future baby, and on top of everything sprinkled with confetti. The box, of course, should also be wrapped in wrapping paper, because unpacking a gift always adds intrigue.
Before the holiday, there were three days left, and I thought it over in stages: how I pack everything beautifully, how imperceptibly I will put a gift in my backpack and I’ll just smile since the morning of the 14th and urge my husband that he does not even imagine what gift he is waiting for in the evening.
But the more carefully I thought about how to organize everything, the more clearly I understood that I could no longer and do not want to keep this exciting news in myself. In fact it will be necessary to be silent and to hide it three more days. For as many as three days! Therefore, as soon as my husband came home, I decided that I wanted to share the wonderful news here right here and now.
I sat him down, told him to close his eyes and stretch out his hands. On his palm, I put the test and the first ultrasound images of our future baby. So everything is simple, without beautiful packaging, ribbons and other festive tinsel. When his eyes opened, a couple of seconds passed before he realized what was what, and jumped up to me.
It was the happiest moment for our family. I do not know exactly what thoughts flashed through my husband’s head, but it was enough for me to see the joy in his eyes and feel a strong embrace.
Later, after some time, I told my husband that I wanted to present the news as a gift for Valentine’s Day, to which he stated that I had done right, that I did not wait for the holiday. And we decided to embody some of the interesting ideas when we tell our parents about pregnancy.
Perhaps those who are still thinking how to tell their husbands about pregnancy will benefit from the ideas I have gathered, how it is possible to make the future papul unusually happy with the news about adding to the family.
In general, if you have the patience and desire to tell your husband about pregnancy in an original way, you can:
1 Pack a pregnancy test with an ultrasound snapshot in a gift box;
2 order a cake or pizza with the inscription “You’ll soon be a dad“;
3 to engrave with a similar inscription on a spoon and give it to her husband;
4 order a puzzle with a picture of a baby with an uzi- picture or a scratch card where the main news will be hidden under special spraying;
5 arrange a game with her husband “3 things that you like in the second half,” and on her own sheet / slate write about pregnancy;
6th order a cup with the appropriate picture or inscription for the future dad.
How we talked about pregnancy to parents
Tell parents about pregnancy was decided after the first trimester of pregnancy. Not that we were superstitious and believed in the evil eye and other nonsense, we simply understood the risks of the first three months when the fetus is still being formed and anything can happen. It is better to wait a moment, to hear the heartbeat of your baby on the first ultrasound, and then to inform the nearest ones.
