Bun in the oven
This ones a classic, of course.
This is how I chose to tell Devin I was pregnant with Alexa and it was definitely memorable.
We still love telling the story.
I got my positive result first thing in the morning. I wanted to wait until dinner time, because it would make more sense, but I just couldn’t wait.
So immediately after leaving the bathroom I grab a bun and put it in the oven.
When Devin came downstairs I acted scared that there was something in the oven and asked him what it was.
He goes, “Its just a roll, you must have left it in there last night” and I go, “No, Devin there’s a bun in the oven”.
Then he finally got it and the look on his face was priceless.
Someones moving in
I had this idea the other day and I’m considering this one for the next time we get pregnant.
I was thinking I would buy a pair of baby shoes and put them next to ours on the shoe mat.
Buy a baby coat and hang it up next to our coats and get a baby tooth-brush and put it next to ours in the bathroom.
If he’s really oblivious and you make it to dinner time you can set an extra plate at the table too.
Then just wait and see how long it takes for him to catch on.
Caught on camera
This one would be tricky for us because we don’t really ever take selfies together, let alone a video.
But I know a lot of couples do and this is definitely a moment you’re going to want to replay over and over.
Maybe say you want to send a video to a relative saying happy birthday, but as soon as you hit play tell him you’re pregnant!

A little similar to the last one but with pictures instead.
I saw so many cute husband pregnancy reveal photo reactions when I was researching for this post, I just knew this had to be on the list.
Some people go all out and hire a photographer, and the husband just thinks they’re getting family portraits done.
But you can also have a family member or friend snap the shots to save money.
Just make sure they know you’re pregnant or when you say it they’ll probably be too shocked to take the pictures!
Part of me really wants to try this one just because my husband is so oblivious, it would take him forever to catch on.
Which would be funny at first but I’d probably end up having to wear the shirt for a day or two before he caught on, so I don’t know.
Big sibling shirt
All of these ideas are cute, but for Devin I think he’d enjoy this one the most.
And it would be easy to because Alexa loves to dress up, i’m talking at least 10 wardrobe changes a day.
After each time she changes she comes to show us and we tell he how beautiful she looks.
If you do have children already and you’re considering this reveal you can check these out, there are so many options:

Again if you have children already, you can do this reveal.
Just purchase a big sister or big brother book and have your little one ask Daddy to read it or you can just start reading it to them when he’s around and see how long it take to catch on.
You’ve hit the lottery
I thought this was so cute when I found it!
Winning some extra cash is nice but finding out you’re having a baby is better!
Pregnancy Reveal Lottery Tickets
Baby Back Ribs
Baby red potatoes
For this reveal you make this dinner.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sure my husband wouldn’t get it.
So ask him questions like, “Do you like your BABY back ribs” and “Is your BABY corn good?”
Scream for ice cream
Does your husband have a sweet tooth?
Serve ice cream for dessert and stick this spoon in his bowl!
New Netflix Account
Devin and I used to binge watch shows on Netflix together.
If you and your husband use Netflix regularly then add an account and name it Baby!

Size of the baby
This is a really sweet way to tell your husband you’re pregnant.
Depending on how many weeks you are, put the following in your hand and ask him if he knows what it is.
No matter what he says all you have to do is respond with, “That’s how big our baby is right now”.
4 Weeks: Poppy Seed
5 Weeks: Peppercorn
6 Weeks: Pomegranate Seed
7 Weeks: Blueberry
8 Weeks: Raspberry
9 Weeks: Cherry
10 Weeks: Kumquat
He’ll be puzzled
If your husband enjoys puzzles then you need to get him this one.
Give him a gift
Another classic, so it just had to make the list.
Wrap your positive pregnancy test in a box and give it to him.
Finding out he’s going to be a Dad will best the best gift he’s ever received.
A little advice for this one though.
If I can remember correctly the digital tests will go blank after a certain amount of time so it’s better to go with the line test instead.
Coffee mug surprise
Or tea, we don’t judge.
I’m sure your husband will appreciate the caring gesture of you making his morning cup of coffee and bringing it to him.
And you’ll enjoy the look on his face when he see what’s on the bottom of this mug.
A lot on our plate
Similar to the mug, this plate will make for a dinner story you’ll tell again and again for years to come.
Lets get fat together
Ugh I got sooo fat when I was pregnant, this should have been the reveal for my husband!
Just get him his favorite fatty snack, with a note or card wrapped around it saying “Let’s get fat together”.
When he looks at you confused you can tell him you’re eating for two!

I love the coffee mug surprise. I probably would have tried this with my last pregnancy.
It’s a great idea, definitely would make for a fun story to tell!
I revealed my first pregnancy by tying one pair of baby boy shoes to my male dogs collar and one pair of baby girl shoes to my female dogs collar so when he got home from work they greeted him at the door with the shoes dangling at their neck
So cute! Great idea!
We do not have any kids, yet. But when the day comes I have purchased a book from Amazon (I can not keep a secret so I pre ordered it through a friend so that he couldn’t see it on the Amazon account) called “We’re Pregnant! The First-Time Dad’s Pregnancy Handbook” it is still in the package sealed and hidden. When we finally get a positive test I will hide the test (in my pocket or waist band) and attempt to record secretly and tell him I have something for him, then let him open the package and then show him the test.
Great article! Thank Personally I just took a pick of the pregnancy test and sent him through text with the simple wording “Surprise!”
