  2. Make a puzzle for your loved one that says “we're having a baby!” When they put together the puzzle, they will get the idea and will be as excited as you are.
  3. Put stickers on your belly that says “Baby on Board”. Then have someone raise your shirt up to reveal your most precious secret.

  5. Have a big cookie made from a bakery that says “I'm having a baby” and have it delivered to your husband's place of work.

  7. Tell your husband that you've done something that really went over the budget and prepare him to re-crunch the numbers. Instead of giving him a pencil, hand him the positive pregnancy test. He will be so excited.
  8. If it is Christmas time, wrap up a pair of baby booties and give them to your husband or parents to announce the big event.
