    Soo, I don't want to tell anyone my plan for how I'm going to tell the hubby b/c I don't want to spoil it...So I'm venting to you all!!!! Hopefully if I get my BFP on Sunday, I am going to spend the day cooking/baking. I want to do it Full House style. Baby back ribs, baby carrots, baby peas, etc...and then I want to make pink and blue iced cupcakes!!! My husband is in Ohio right now visiting some friends and he's coming home on Sunday night. My mom is in Italy and coming home Sunday night as well. And, if I am preg. then my estimated due date is Feb 18th, which is the day I lose my grandma last year. It would mean THE WORLD to me if this was it!! I can feel it!! I just have "that feeling."

    What are your plans?? Any ideas on how to break it to the grandparents?! :happydance:

    I'm hoping that I'm pregnant this cycle so that I can tell hubby on Father's Day! This will be our first baby so I'm hoping to get a BFP next week so that I can present him with a card and expectant father book. :)

    Aww, I'm sorry. Yes, I plan on wrapping my HPT up in a jewelry box and give it to him at dinner. Because I cook for him all the time so I don't think he will think anything of it.

    I would love to think up some awesome, elaborate way to tell him. I would LOVE to tell him at our couple's getaway this weekend but I'm sure af will show up and ruin it all. Honestly though, I will probably just be squeaking, squealing and screaming a lot as I shove a two-lined stick in his face.:haha:

    I have a better plan for my parents though. It's so funny, my parents are just waiting for me to announce that I'm pregnant (they don't know we are TTC). I recently got my first tattoo and went to show them. I called both into the living room and the look on my mom's face was hilarious when I plunked my leg on the coffee table an yanked up my pant leg. She said " I thought you were going to say you were pregnant!" with the most disappointed look I've ever seen. I told her flat out that I have a much more elaborate plan in mind than that...muwahaha

    My hubby is a bit of a comic geek and it's his birthday this month so I've been praying that this will be our month as I have it all planned!

    I saw a babygro online that had the slogan 'my daddy has a bigger comic collection than your daddy'. If I get my BFP this weekend I'm gonna order it, wrap it up with his normal birthday presents and give it to him for his birthday!

    Saying that, his birthday isn't until the 22nd so whether I can keep it quiet for that long remains to be seen :)

    Just want to share what I did.....

    With our first pregancy - bought a Nuk baby bottle and put the pos hpt inside. I was working late evening shift and normally buy something yummy and bring some home for hubby. when I got home I told him there's something in my bag for him....full of smiles he rushed for my bag...only to find a baby bottle and only then he saw the pos hpt inside!!

    second time - did a hpt at 5am before work and hubby was still sleeping...left the hpt next to his coffee on the bedside table.

    Now I need to think of some new ideas........

BUT... my father in law is very ill so my husband is going up this weekend to spend a couple days with him now I dont know what to do. Bad part is i'm going to be so excited and he is dealing with his really sick father. :(
