How are you telling Family?

How are you telling your husband and family that you're pregnant? I was thinking when it happens I wanted to do something special, but haven't came up with anything.

I thought about making a t-shirt for our dog that says, "I'm a big sister."  Stupid or cute?

I think I'm going to make DH a card. 


On the front it will have his picture and say:


Great men    


( open it )


Become even better fathers...


( and then i'll probably write something like this )


 Baby Taylor


Due June 2010

Great Moms..... become even better grandmas! See you in June!

I was thinking of calling up my parents (since they are a 6 hour drive) and saying "what do you think of the name _______?" then they will either ask why or figure it out!

telling hubby: i bought this great book i read about a year or so ago, called Father Knows Less (or Can I Cook My Sister?) by Wendell Jamieson. in it, the dad sets out to answer his son's questions through real experts [things like why is the sky blue, why does red mean stop & green means go?] and i'm going to give it to him wrapped up : )


telling our family: we've agreed (for now while it's still theoretical lol) that we don't want to tell anyone even parents for most of the first trimester. when we do, we're having a big family dinner (nothing suspicious in that), and putting out placecards that say "grandma" "grandpa" "nana" "great-grandma" "great-grandpa" etc, etc.


that one was all hubby's idea : )

I am actually driving myself crazy with this right now! I want to have the special way to tell my hubs all set to go so I won't have to wait long to tell him. He's away right now so it's the perfect time to get something and hide it before he gets home. But I have like 5 different GREAT ideas and can't decide!! AHHHH

OMG I think I finally have decided how I want to tell him, and it will work for the rest of the family too!!!


We have a little pug dog who is very special and important in our lives, and our families' lives...He knows all kinds of little tricks like I point my finger at him and say "bang you're dead" and he falls to the ground......


I think it's time he learned a new trick!



After I find out I'm pregnant and my husband comes home from work I will tell him I taught our pug a new trick and I want to show him. First I'll take the dog through his usual routines......then I'll say "where's the baby?" and the dog will sniff my tummy and lay his paw on it!! I've already started training him and so far it's going really good! When I ask the question he puts his face on my tummy, now I just have to teach him to get his paw on there too! I think I love it!


And this will work for when we go over the grandparents' houses because they love when he learns new tricks!

thanks! I'm so excited about it. He has it down perfectly already, now I just have to get pregnant! LOL


I think I'll even ask my husband to video tape the new trick so I get his reaction to it on tape!
