How To Tell Your Husband You Are Pregnant
- They say the way to a man’s heart is through his tummy. Depending on whether you are a good cook or not, cook or order the neighbourhood restaurant to deliver at the doorstep. The pivotal idea is to fill his stomach with good food, make him happy and then announce the good news. You could either serve him a plate with a serving lid on the positive pregnancy test. Or you could go down on your knees and give him the positive pregnancy test in your hand. Say something on the lines of, “will you be the father to our baby?” Wait for his jubilation and don’t be surprised if you are smothered into a bear hug.
- If you are the outward, raunchy and the eternally in love kind of couple then the following will be the best idea for you. Leave a trail of baby products that are not too obvious. Leave something like a baby toy on the table or serve him on baby plates and glass and leave him a little perplexed. Mislead your husband into thinking you are going to be making love. Write on your tummy “i am pregnant” with a red lipstick, so that he reads it when he tries to undress you.
