My philosophy is that Jeff got to surprise me when he proposed, so I get to ‘surprise’ him when I get pregnant. Now, since we were trying to get pregnant, it’s never going to be a HUGE surprise to him, but I still want to do something kind of special.
This pregnancy, I did something similar to what I did with my first pregnancy here. (Kind of wish I would’ve done better.) I had been taking pregnancy tests for a few days and had gotten weird/inconsistent results. Finally, I got sick of the weird results and on a Friday, I bought a digital pregnancy test – no confusion there, right? Sure enough, it came up positive right away!
So that morning, I snuck out to his car. On his rear view mirror, I hung an adorable baby dress. On his seat, I included an invitation to the birth of his second child. He went out to his car, just on his way to work (at 6:15 in the morning!) and found the items. Of course, he came back in and I told him the news. He was excited and headed back out to work! And then he came home from work with yellow roses – my favorite!
