    tie a ribbon round the BFP hpt.
    put a label on a jar of baby food saying "will it be a boy or girl?" and put it in his lunch box/bag.
    when you go to bed put an arrow on your tummy pointing towards the baby and write "say hello daddy"

    Hi beee I bought a few little onesie's last month cos i saw them on offer and couldn't resist. I then bought some printable transfer paper online and printed 'I love my Daddy' on it which i then transferred onto the little onesie. I've hidden them away so he doesn't find them. When the time comes i am going to wrap it up and leave it as a gift for him. hope it will be soon. am 4 days late so got my fingers crossed.

    Aw thats a lovely idea! I like that one, I actually saw some baby gro's with something like 'I'm fantastic, just like daddy' on them, that may be a good idea, like put it under his pillow with the BFP test stick...

    Before I decided to stop ttc for now, I asked OH if he wanted to know straight away or wait til after work, he wanted to know straight away. As he can't answer his mobile at work I thought I would just send a pic message of the stick.

    I really wanted to wait till he came home from work and have the smell of cakes baking hit him as he came through the door....(I NEVER cook) and when he's asks 'what's that I can smell??(or similar) say 'Oh...I 've just got a bun in the oven....'

    what actually happened was I POAS and went :shock:....than ran in to the bedroom, thrust the digi under his nose and said 'WHAT DOES THAT SAY?????' :rofl:

    mervs mum- ur wee spud is soooooooo cute! love the hair!!!

    and your idea is brilliant but I don't think I'll have the patience for that either. I'd love to make him a lovely romantic dinner and bring out the "dessert" and have the test on his plate covered by a napkin. I so know I'm just gonna start squealing though and we'll both start doing laps of the flat!!

    If you do decide to present your OH with your HPT be sure not to hang about if it's a digi.....I didnt realise but those batteries run out QUICK!! Take a photo too - you wont get bored of looking at it in the future......:cloud9:
