That moment you realize you’re pregnant can be such an exciting time! My husband and I had been anxiously waiting for a positive pregnancy test and it never came. We eventually went to a fertility center here in Utah and got pregnant, much to our surprise and joy, on our first cycle of clomid.
I was SO sure we weren’t pregnant that I answered the phone call, that was letting us know our results, while I was at work and without my husband there. Totally floored that we finally had our positive test, I immediately went searching for a clever way to let my husband know. Letting him know we were pregnant was by far my favorite surprise I’ve ever done to him. (More details on that below. . .) Anyway, it was such an exciting moment in our life that I’ve compiled a fun list of clever ways to tell your husband you’re pregnant so that I have more ideas for the next time around.

Have him get the mail…
This is what I did for my husband. I stuck the book “What to Expect when you’re Expecting” in our mailbox along with a card that said, “Congratulations, you’re finally going to be a daddy!”. When he got home I asked him if he’d go get the mail. We had been trying for over a year and he totally cried. ?

As a sidenote, If you’re a paranoid parent like me, and looking for a baby monitor, I would 100% recommend getting the Owlet. When I first heard of the Owlet, my first thought was, “Another baby product no one needs.” Until my friend had a really scary experience with her baby and was alerted by her Owlet–now it’s my number 1 recommendation for new moms. It’s a baby heart rate monitor that monitors your baby’s heart rate and oxygen while they sleep and alerts you if your baby has abnormal levels. If you’re thinking of getting a baby monitor, I highly advise you get this instead (or get both). But if you can only get one, get the owlet. A baby monitor won’t do you any good if you are fast asleep, but an Owlet will alert you if baby stops breathing.
