Creative ways to tell DH about pregnancy?!

In the past DH was either with me when I found out I was pregnant or was told right away via a phone call. I found out I'm expecting again earlier this week and have decided to surprise DH with the news on Father's Day. Does anyone have any creative ideas for me.

All I can come with is including "Baby #5" on his father's day card under all the other kid's names...but would be great if I can get any better ideas

Thanks

I just put the pregnancy test in a box and wrapped it for my DH.... I think a cute idea would be to make up some cinnamon rolls in the morning and once he wakes up and asks about them you can say, "Oh It Looks like we've got another bun in the oven" or something similar to that.

Re: Creative ways to tell DH about pregnancy?!

I'm no help. With this pregnancy, I wanted to do a cute reveal to DH. I picked him up from work the day I found out, and my plan was to surprise him after I got home from my night class. Nope, we got about 5 blocks from his work and I blurted out "I was going to wait to tell you later, but I'm pregnant!!!"

You could have each of the kids get him a little gift and wrap it and then wrap another little gift from baby #5 or even a little poem inside the box.

Can you get matching daddy/baby ties? Or put the test on a box and wrap it. You could make him a cake and stick a plastic baby in it, like they do for Mardi Gras.

How about a picture frame with 5 spots, the first 4 have pics w/ your 4 kids and then something like #5 or "coming soon" in the 5th spot?

I LOVE pharmmama's idea. Because that can be something you can give to him separately as a later gift if you're not going to tell the other children right away.

Congrats! Big families are so awesome!
