My DH found out with a phone call.

Everyone else found out through bog standard "we've got something to tell you".

I'm hoping to be a bit more creative 2nd time round haha

This is our 2nd together but our 5th total. I didn't know how to tell him. I had known for almost a week before saying anything. Then one evening when the kids were in bed he was asking me to give him all of our birth dates and when I threw in an extra date he asked who's it was and I told him our next baby. It didn't register at first and then he thought that I was joking, when he saw that I was laughing and crying at the same time he also started laughing and was happy. Now our first scan is on Monday. Hoping that all is well as we did have a miscarriage prior to our last child. waiting till after scan to tell our relatives.

I found out the day before my dad's birthday; we bought him a Basketball hat and hid a pair of same-teamed baby booties underneath it. When he unwrapped the present he was pretty confused, and even said, "aren't these for babies?" when all he saw was my huge grin my mom and dad's faces were priceless! It's our first No one knew we were trying.

I found a t-shirt at Motherhood that said Mommy in Training and wore it to dinner. It didn't take long for him to notice.
