How soon should you tell your husband you are pregnant?

That’s entirely up to you. There’s simply no one-size-fits-all here.

The one thing that is common? How difficult it is not to share your big news.

The ideal time to take a pregnancy test is after you’ve missed a period.

And if that result comes out positive, you may want to tell your partner right away.

Whether you have been trying for a baby, or you’ve just not been trying not to get pregnant, containing your eagerness is hard.

Of course, this can make getting creative with a surprise pregnancy announcement to your husband a little difficult — you may just want to blurt it out.

But it’s certainly not impossible.

And if you do want to just come out with it, “Hey, we’re going to be parents.” is perfectly fine.

The news itself is so exciting that it doesn’t require extra toppings to make it taste good.

But if you’re curious about how to tell your husband you are pregnant with a creative flair, here’s some inspiration.

How do you tell your partner you are pregnant?

A popular way to announce a pregnancy to your husband is by giving him a small gift.

One easy way is to box up a positive pregnancy test to present to your partner.

But luckily, there are also a bunch of other ways that are not as pee-soaked. Here are some adorable options:

Cute ways to tell your husband you’re pregnant

  1. Get a baby onesie printed with some special words and give it to your partner as a gift. “BABY {INSERT YOUR SURNAME} COMING IN {INSERT MONTH OF YOUR DUE DATE}” works well. (And yep, you get a gift here too — the reaction on their face.)
  2. Wrap up a piggy bank with the word “BABY” printed on it. Pop him a note saying you’re starting a savings pot for the newest member of your family.
  3. Buy some alcohol-free beer or champagne and present it with these words in a card:
    You plus me and the baby makes three!
    For the next nine months, I’ll be alcohol-free.
  4. Surprise your partner with a parenting book. We like Secrets of the Baby Whisperer by Tracy Hogg and Melinda Blau and The Expectant Father: The Ultimate Guide for Dads-to-be by Armin Brott.
  5. Give your husband your good news with a printed t-shirt — “Daddy in the making,” “Daddy Est. 2022,” or “Dad To Be” are all good choices. You can then add to the fun by popping on your own pregnancy-themed t-shirt once you’ve presented your gift.

Funny pregnancy announcements for husbands

Pregnancy is, to put it mildly, a big deal.

In nine short months, your world will be transformed by your new arrival — even if you’re already parents.

If you can add some humor to the situation, great!

These five funny ways to tell your husband you’re pregnant are just the thing for lightening the mood.

  1. Present them with a book of dad jokes. After all, they’re going to have to brush up on their routine to achieve peak cringe. Here’s a fun option for inspiration.
  2. If the spare room in your house has become a man-cave, it’s time for an eviction notice! Stick a formal notice to the door. Include your due date as the date to vacate the premises. Sincerely, Baby-to-be.
  3. Arrange to have diapers delivered in your husband’s name to your address. Yep, a truly out-of-the-box idea.
  4. Send a surprise pregnancy announcement to your husband as a job offer. “Congratulations! You got the job! Starting September 2022, you’ll be starting your new position of Dad with the Samuel’s Family!” Now that’s a serious promotion.
  5. If this is your third pregnancy, it’s time to really band together. Warn your partner that, with the new baby that’s on the way, you adults will soon be outnumbered! One way to do this? Write it up on a chalkboard sign.

Five pregnancy announcements for foodies

These delicious food-related pregnancy announcements are perfect for those that love having their taste buds tickled!

  1. Arrange a night out with your partner, but book a table for three. Ask the staff to place a congratulations card on the tray of a high chair at the third place setting before you are seated at your table.
  2. If you and your partner enjoy a takeaway treat, order pizza and write your announcement on the pizza box lid. Another option? Stick a photo of your positive pregnancy on the inside of the box.
  3. If takeaway Chinese food is more your style than a pizza night, include a personalized fortune cookie with your meal. “You are going to be a dad in 2023.” Now that’s one intelligent cookie!
  4. Custom chocolates are a luxurious way to celebrate any occasion, including making a pregnancy announcement to your partner! Two big chocolates and a small one may be the perfect way to spill the (cocoa) beans. Or how about these chocolate letters to spell out the news?
  5. Engrave the words “We’re going to be parents!” on a custom-made spoon. Present an ice cream sundae to your partner — and the perfect utensil to eat it with.
