22 Ways to Tell Your Husband You’re Pregnant

1. Scavenger Hunt

Here’s a simple way to tell your husband you’re pregnant – set up a scavenger hunt. You can grab these free printable cards and set it up when your husband isn’t home. Then, when we arrives, tell him you have a surprise for him, and he has to enjoy the hunt for the surprise.

However, this is for your first baby since the last hint says “we’re a family of three,” and it’s not editable!

2. “I’m Pregnant” Shirt

Do you ever feel like your husband doesn’t pay attention to what you’re wearing? Put on this shirt and wait to see how long it takes for him to read the fine print and realize that you’re pregnant!

Honestly, this could be a funny pregnancy announcement that gives you a bit of humor.

3. Use a Cupcake for a Surprise!

Set out some cupcakes when your husband gets home from work with a pregnancy announcement cupcake topper. You could also use these toppers for your baby shower!

4.Receipt + Pregnancy Test

If you want an easy way to tell your husband you’re pregnant, save the receipt when you buy the pregnancy test and lay the results on top for him to discover when he comes home. He will be surprised, and you don’t have to wait for anything to arrive in the mail to let him know!

Wrap up this adorable “Hi, Daddy” shirt and give it to your husband as a surprise gift. You can even tuck your pregnancy test and a pacifier into the box as well.

Are you a candle lover? You got a new candle in the mail, but will your husband notice? You can always have him open the package or light it for you after dinner!

16. Keepsake Ammo

You get a bit of humor with this pregnancy announcement to your husband along with a keepsake item. He can place it on a shelf and remember the moment for years to come when he discovered he would be a dad.

Parenthood is really the greatest adventure, and it takes hitting the target to get the adventure started, right?

17. Golf Ball Marker

If your husband doesn’t fish but loves golfing, get him a personalized golf marker with the due date of your new baby. This is a personalized marker made with stainless steel, and he is sure to love it. You also could have one of these made for grandparents!
