PCOS to Pregnancy: Announcing your pregnancy to your significant other

Let me start this post by stating, no, I am not pregnant...I don't think. It's too early to tell and I'm in that horrible stage where you have to wait! Where is patience when you need it?

So, to fill the time in between now and a reasonable test date, I'm coming up with cute ideas to announce my pregnancy (hopefully) to my husband. Last time was not cute at all. This is how it happened:

The morning I tested, I woke up at 5 am to pee. Even though I was in a sleepy haze, I knew that testing with the first urine of the day was best, so I grabbed a test and turned on the light. I stood in the bathroom and waited for the result. I had seen so many negative tests that I was shocked to finally see a positive! I couldn't believe it! I stood in the bathroom for a minute trying to figure out what to do. I then, ran into our bedroom where my sweet husband was sound asleep. I turned on the light, jumped on the bed, shook him awake, and said "I'm pregnant." I was wide awake and he went back to sleep.

Not the greatest, cutest announcement story and this time I want to do better! I have some time to plan and I need help! I've found some really cute ideas on Pinterest from some bloggers:

This wife announced it during a photo shoot! She had hidden a note in the book her husband was reading to their toddler! How cute!

Trophy Tuesday: Win a Knickernappies Custom Fit Pocket Diaper and save 15% when you order them this week!

Sized Pocket Diapers?  You will love the fit of the Knickernappies Custom Fit diaper!

Sure, the one size cloth diaper is popular and makes a lot of sense to a lot of families but there will always be a place and purpose for sized pocket diapers like the Knickernappies Custom Fit Diaper.

It's easy to create a diaper that's supposed to fit babies from birth through potty training but the truth is that not all babies are shaped the same and one size diapers just don't fit or function the same on all of them.  Skinny legged babies might have trouble with gaping legs and leaks, chunky babies might outgrow the diaper too soon or you might find the fit is too tight.

What about the bulk factor?  OS diapers are the bulkiest on newborns and often new mothers find that those adorable clothes just won't fit over their new cloth diapers.  With a sized diaper, they would!

Knickernappies Custom Fit pocket diapers feature elastic at both the waist and back.  This keeps messes where they belong: in the diaper!  With hidden snaps and gentle leg elastic, Knickernappies are designed for your baby's comfort.  

Side snaps give this diaper a very smooth fit across the tummy.  No more poofing or drooping!  In addition, side snaps are great for curious toddlers who have mastered aplix or front-snapping diapers.
