How to Tell Your Husband That You Are Pregnant in 12 Steps

    Our 12 step program will provide you in detail how to tell your husband that you are pregnant.

    1. A Baby Themed Dinner. If you are looking for a creative way to tell your husband you are pregnant, why not serve a dinner fit for baby. Baby lima beans, baby carrots, baby back ribs and a Baby Ruth are all great choices. If he still doesn't get it, try topping off the night with a jar of baby food.
    2. Hanging Empty Frames. Do you have an area of the house where family photos are displayed? If so, try hanging or placing a few empty frames in that spot. When your husband asks why the frames are empty, tell him they are waiting on the first pictures of baby.
    3. Italian Surprise. Prego Italian sauce provides the perfect label trick to tell your husband he will be a daddy. Swap out the traditional Prego label with a label that reads "I'm Prego." To make things even easier just write the word "I'm" in large print on the label.
    4. Tie Him Up. If your husband wears ties to work, buy him a tie with rattles or booties all over it. In the morning, suggest he wears that tie to work. He will immediately understand why.
    5. Puppy Messenger. If your husband can't get into the house without the puppy attacking his legs, try attaching a message to the puppy's collar. When the puppy jumps up on your husband he will read the note and beam with joy.
    6. Make a Doctor's Visit. For the first visit with the Ob / Gyn, tell your husband that he has an appointment for a physical or check-up. When you arrive at the doctor's office, he will know he is not the one that needs some attention.
    7. Replace His Underwear with Diapers. Cleaning out your husband's underwear drawer and replacing the underwear with diapers is a cute way to get the news across. Just make sure hubby does not try to wear the diapers to work.
    8. Classic Proposal. There is nothing saying the man in the relationship has to be the one to propose every time. When you find out you are pregnant, buy him a small piece of jewelry or a daddy's ring. Get down on one knee and ask him if he would do you the honor of raising a baby with you.
    9. Stuffing the Tummy. In an attempt to break the ice, pack your shirt with a pillow and ask your husband how he thinks you look while pregnant. When he answers positively, tell him it is a good thing because that is the way you will look in a few months.
    10. Wrap the Test. The pregnancy test is the best way to tell your husband you are pregnant. But, instead of just handing him the test, wrap it up with pastel tissue paper in a very expensive box. When he arrives home, tell him to take a look at the expensive gift you got for yourself.
    11. Picture Art. Mom can take a picture of a hamburger bun, a picture of the oven and a picture of herself. On the wall, the pictures can be placed like a math equation. Bun + Oven = Mom
    12. Straight Talk. If there is too much excitement surrounding the baby for tricks and funny reveals, walk into his job and tell him face to face. The joy will still be there.
