How To Tell Your Partner You’re Pregnant
Breaking the news to your partner about your pregnancy could be nerve-racking, irrespective of it being a surprise or whether the two of you had been planning for it. So here are some creative, fun ways to announce to your partner that he’s going to be a dad!
Scribble It Or Write It Down Somewhere
Use a post-it note and stick it somewhere he’ll see the first thing in the morning. It could be the bathroom mirror, your fridge door, or anywhere else. Make sure you’re awake to see his first reaction and are ready to calm his nerves, because his emotions could range from being awestruck and bewildered to anger and disbelief!
Give Him A Unique Gift
Plan a dinner date with him where his beverage is served in a bottle decked with a card marked ‘it’s a baby.’ If he’s a sports enthusiast, you could get him a gift basket with his sports items with a specific one indicating the baby’s arrival. Take cue from a golf enthusiast’s wife who marked an onesie in the gift bag as ‘daddy’s future caddy.
Cook Up A Sweet Surprise
Cook his favorite sweet dish and while serving, announce that there’s a double sweet dose awaiting him for he’s going to be a father soon!
Drop It On The Bed
Just after a romp under the sheets or the good morning kiss, compliment him by saying something like ‘congrats! I’ve made you a dad.’
Make sure you see his first reaction and are ready to calm his nerves, because his emotions could range from being awestruck and bewildered to anger and disbelief!
Get Nostalgic Before Breaking The Good News
String together past romantic photos or make a PowerPoint presentation with images since you met your partner the first time, until now and have your pregnancy declaration at the end!
Tell Your Partner First
Not everyone can handle the news of pregnancy calmly. And though most men are ecstatic and overjoyed, especially those who are planning to welcome a child, there are many who feel bombed by the news and may act in weird ways, from feeling devastated to going mum and even storming off the scene.
But no matter what, your partner should always find out about your pregnancy from you and not from others, because that may really spoil your equation, since he may feel unimportant, unloved, ignored and even betrayed for you’ve preferred to share this news with others ahead of him!
