Are you pregnant and looking for a creative way to tell your partner? We sat down at our Winter Park OB GYN office, and came up with a list of creative ideas just for you!
Forget the wedding proposal, try a baby proposal! Find your ring box (or any jewelry box), put a pacifier in it, and get down on one knee to ask the very important question: “Will you have a baby with me?”
2) Plan a dinner
Make reservations at your favorite restaurant and let the staff know in advance. You can even ask the hostess or server to seat you as a “party of three”.
3) Make it official
Send him a “certified” letter in the mail with a poem you wrote or cute card telling him he’s “officially” going to be a dad
4) If it’s around the holiday, lucky you!
New Year: Buy sparkling cider and cheers to alcohol free celebration. Tell him it’s not your resolution…you’re pregnant!
Valentines: Get a box of chocolates and personalize the inside of the lid “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get…boy or girl, you’re gonna be a dad!”
Easter: Prepare an Easter egg hunt and let him find the one you stuff telling him he’s going to be a dad!
July 4th: Buy fireworks and write a note to him saying these are to celebrate our country’s independence and ours in 18 years! Congratulations dad!
Thanksgiving: If you’re cooking, tell him you didn’t buy any bread because you already have a bun in the oven
Hanukkah/Christmas: Wrap 4 gift boxes that contain the letters B-A-B-Y in them and have him open them individually until he realizes that it spells “Baby”
If he loves coffee, pour him a cup and when he finishes, the bottom of the empty mug will read “Hope you enjoyed your coffee daddy!” Apply the same concept to a beer label, plate of food, etc…)
6) Or…just keep it simple! Give him a big hug and kiss and tell him you’re pregnant
