for telling the grandparents, I found 5 onesies (one for each grandparent- MIL, FIL, mom, [step]dad, and dad) that say different things that pertain to the individual grandparent [like "if you think I nap a lot you should see my GRANDMA" and "don't blame ME, that smell is coming from GRANDPA"] and a shirt for our neice on DH's side that says "I'm gonna be a big cousin".

as for telling DH, I dunno... I found a shirt that says "guess who's going to be a dad" for him and a shirt that says "I passed the pregnacy test" for me... one day I could grab his shirt for him out of the closet while we're getting dressed and have him grab me mine out of the other room.

My husband is an Air Force veteran...and a gun nut, so I thought about buying a onesie with Springfield Armory or Smith & Wesson's logo...or maybe with a picture of an AR-15.
For the parents, I'm not quite sure. I'm gonna have to strap my mom in a chair regardless. She's wanted grandkids since...FOREVER!

DH and I have talked about ways to surprise our families and I have already told him that I plan on surprising him when the time comes also. Surprising him won't be difficult though. He doesn't catch on very well.

But, I think I have decided to mail a package to our house that says, "Special Delivery" all over it. When he opens it he will find a photo of the BFP and a little "Daddy" token of some sort. I havent decided yet if it will be a baby outfit or a shirt for him or maybe a onesie that supports his favorite football team. The package idea would work great for us though because DH is the one who gets the mail and he wont suspect I mailed it if he retrieves it from the box himself.

For our families we have talked about wrapping up a baby doll or even just a U/S photo and put a box inside a box inside a box etc. This for some unknown reason is a tradition in our family to torture the opener(s) by multi-wrapping. The top of each box though will have a clue about what the actual gift is inside. Of course, this all hinges on whether we can get our BFP and are ready to announce by the time the holidays roll around. If not, then we will surely think of something else.

If anyone has the chance to announce around Christmas though, I think a Santa coming in a pulling a swaddled baby out of his gift bag would be an incredibly cute idea also. The baby could have a bow tied to it that has the due date on it.
Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.

These are all awesome ideas :)
I just got my BFP late last week but I had a plan all along. For my DH (who still doesn't know... And yes, it's been torturous not telling him!!) I have been begging to go to our favorite sushi place (especially since I won't be able to go for a while)! I ordered custom fortune cookies which should be here today :fingers crossed: and after dinner when the check comes he will open a fortune that says, "headed your way is a bundle of joy. It will either be a girl or a boy! Baby Last Name March 9, 2014". I can't wait to see his face!!!

To tell my parents (who live out of state) I am mailing them books for babies and saying "please read this to me when I get here on or around March 9, 2014. Love, baby last name "

Keeping this to myself has been sooo hard!!! I don't keep secrets well!

My husband is really into cycling, so I was going to give him a tiny baby's cycling jersey - and one that matches for him to wear :)
