Getting jittery and excited when you find out that you are going to be a mother is an otherworldly feeling. The joy that comes with it is unmatchable to anything else. However, the excitement of breaking the news to your husband and seeing his reaction is even more golden.
Just imagine, you’re having not one, but two babies! Twins! Makes everybody so happy, does it not? And it will bring your husband the same amount of happiness. If you’re wondering how to break the news to him, you are at the right place.
Take a look at some of these innovative ideas.
1. Two peas in a pod
This is a simple and inexpensive way to let your husband know that you’re going to have two beautiful babies. The pod, in this case, would represent you, or better yet, your womb, whereas the two peas would be your twins. This method is not only innovative, but it will also keep your husband guessing for quite a while. Where is the fun in telling him too quickly? Let him work it out on his own!
2. Double trouble arriving…
You can simply buy two pairs of tiny, identical shoes (or different ones, in the case of fraternal twins) and place them under a sign saying “Double trouble arriving (name of the month when you’re expecting)”. This would let your husband know that you’re expecting, along with the fact that those kids are not going to be so easy to deal with. Buckle up, dear husband!
What better time and place to break the news to your husband than the kitchen? Get up early one morning and make your husband some breakfast. Include two boiled eggs as part of his meal. Instead of peeling off the skin after boiling the eggs, you can simply use a marker to write a phrase that would indicate that you are expecting. Using two eggs instead of one would make it even better for him to guess.
4. An ultrasound picture with some catchy caption
You can always use a more direct way if you do not want to beat around the bush. Just print out a picture of your ultrasound that clearly shows that you have not one, but two fetuses and paste it somewhere in the house where your husband is bound to look. You can add any caption of your choice. If you are looking for something sassy, you can go with “Because we are overachievers. That’s why!”. Not only will this make your husband ecstatic, but it will also cause him to burst into a fit of laughter.
Amidst all this, try to record everything. Place a hidden camera or you could hide somewhere in your house when you break the news of the pregnancy. The reactions you will receive, most of the times, are beautiful and nothing matches their magnitude of pure joy. After all, don’t you want to show your future babies how their dad reacted after finding out that he was going to have them?
