Several readers have asked when I broke the news to Mr. Handsome when I found out that we were pregnant and how I came up with a pregnancy announcement. Just to be sure that it wasn’t a false positive, I took a few different pregnancy tests over a span of a few days before telling him. After all those came back positive, I searched online for cute pregnancy announcement ideas, and let me tell you, there are a lot!
I considered doing something with fishing–“Future angler to arrive soon,” “We’re expecting a new fishing buddy,” or “Our greatest catch is on the way.” Those were all pretty clever but a little too flashy for me. I ended up going with something slightly more sentimental.
I stopped by Goodwill and purchased a onesie for 99 cents–score! It needed to be gender neutral (of course), so I figured yellow with a little rubber ducky was a good choice. When Mr. Handsome returned home from work that evening, I had laid the onesie on our bed, along with a note written “To the World’s Greatest Husband” and a sign that said “Dear Daddy, I can’t wait to meet you! Love, Baby.”
He didn’t see it at first, so I had to nonchalantly say, “There’s something on the bed for you.” He was very surprised! It took him a little while for the news to truly sink in, as it did for me. Honestly, it wasn’t until we started telling family and friends and my bump started growing that it felt real. A couple months later, when we decided it was time to announce our news, we used the Christmas-themed announcement shown in the photo.
