I just got a positive HPT today! Now how do I tell hubby he's going to be a daddy again? I was just going to text him a picture of the test, but I wanted something more sweet and meaningful. Any suggestions? Last time he was standing with me when I peed on the stick lol! I already know how I am going to tell the grandparents.

i saw someone once suggest tying a blue and pink ribbon around your belly. i thought that was a cute idea!

another person got a baby name book and put it on the kitchen table.

i let my daughter do it. she went into the dr. with me cuz my hubby was convinced i wasnt preggers and so when the dr told me. My 4 year old ran to the waiting room to tell him. he thought she was lying but she got a big kick out of it.

You should put "big brother" or "big sister" on a shirt of the youngest you have now. and if he/she can talk, tell him/her, "Go ask daddy if he likes your shirt"
