How I told My Husband I'm Pregnant...

First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your sweet comments & congratulations!  We are super excited for baby #3! I am super thankful for the wonderful blessing God has given us of a third baby! I am not gonna lie, I am super scared because at times it can be very overwhelming with two kids but I am overall excited and thankful! :) 
So this is how we shared the news with my hubby. Yes I said WE meaning I told my kiddos first so we could plan something together. I had a feeling I was pregnant after I got sick all of a sudden one week and my stomach just felt weird. I didn't feel like eating anything! All I wanted to do was lay in bed and sleep all day! A week later I took a pregnancy test and sure enough it was positive! I told my son first and he was so excited because we had been praying for a baby for a while now. I was not creative at all the last two times I was pregnant but this time I wanted to tell my husband in a special way so as I was googling different ways to share the news I came up with my own! I told my son we would place the pregnancy test in a box and close it up and pretend like we ordered something from Ebay as a present for Dad. It would be easy for him to believe because we randomly get packages in the mail from things I buy on Ebay! :) So We took a priority mail box, some easter grass I got on sale when I was buying candy for my daughter's birthday and placed the pregnancy test in a baggy with a little note....

I made a fake shipping label on Photoshop and taped up the box to make it look more real...

...and that's how my hubby found out!
He got home that day shook the box and said "there's nothing in here!" lol
As soon as he opened the box and found the test at the bottom he was smiling and laughing! :)
I have been feeling better but still nauseous and tired! 
The baby will be sharing a room with our daughter so that room that we just finished a couple months ago will be getting some changes in a couple months! :)


  1. That's so cute Cindy! Congrats again!!

  2. Really cute--congrats! You know, for me, going from 2 to 3 was much easier than from 1 to 2. Partly because there was a bit more age gap (3 years as compared to 2 years) but also because I think I felt a little more confident in what I was doing.

  3. Hooray!! 3 is a breeze... (I think). :) It was much easier for me to go from 2-3 than to go from 1-2 kids. You will be just fine! Congrats!

  4. That is so fun! I wasn't super creative with our *surprise* 1st baby, but after that I got more creative. And more creative in how we told our families. With our second, we went to our favorite local Chinese place and I had previously ordered custom fortune cookies. The whole family was there (extended as well), so it was a fun way to tell them and let them figure out the fortunes.

  5. Congrats! What a cute way to share the news!

  6. Awesome Cindy! That was a great idea! Don't feel bad for resting and laying down/sleeping a lot. You may feel like that for the next month or two, but then it will be ok :)
    Makin' a baby is hard work! :)

    Love you guys!!!

  7. That is really adorable! What a fun way to tell your husband! I am just so very excited for you, friend! I hope this pregnancy goes really well for you!

  8. Congrats!
    Praying you have an easy pregnancy! :]

  9. Love the idea! Your kids must've been so excited watching him open up that box! Hope you get your energy back soon and start feeling better! So excited for your family! :D

  10. Congrats! What a cut way to tell him!
    I just found your blog while I was searching for a way to make a blog border...your tutorial was so easy! Thanks for posting it :)
    Looking forward to reading more!
