The Stork is Coming: 3 Cute Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy

Pin It

Who knew that two little blue lines could make someone so happy? Finding out you’re pregnant is one of the most exciting moments of a pregnancy – along with hearing the heart beat and feeling that little baby kick for the first time. Here are some creative ideas on how to share “the big news” with your loved ones.

1. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words: A photograph of a positive pregnancy test is a common way to announce a pregnancy. But isn’t a picture of a chalkboard due date pointing at your soon-to-be growing belly so much cuter?

2. Announce it With a T-Shirt: If you’re expecting a second child, have the soon-to-be big brother or sister announce the pregnancy with a t-shirt like this one. If this is your first, you can get a t-shirt or onesie for a niece or nephew that reads “I’m going to be a cousin” or one for a sibling that reads “I’m going to be an Aunt/Uncle.”

3. Napkin Notes: Spread the word by inviting unsuspecting family members to dinner and asking them to find their place at the table. Instead of names, write their new “titles” on a napkin.

  4. For family we all sent them congratulations flowers for becoming a “grandma/grandpa/aunt/uncle” again! It was sent anonymously so it was fun having them all call everyone trying to figure out who it was that was ‘expecting’. lol As for the people that didn’t know beforehand, we sent them an email with a photo attached like the first photo here. Thanks so much for the inspiration! :)

  5. We told everyone by having them gather up to take a picture. I took the picture and said “say cheese”. I looked at it and said “oops someone blinked”. They got ready again and said “Amber’s pregnant” I caught all the amazing reactions on camera! My pictures are here: http://hiswifetwinsmommy.blogspot.com/2011/08/telling-everyone-we-were-pregnant.html

  6. I must knew about it back to my first time of conception. It takes a lot of courage before I get to say it to my family that I was pregnant. I was so scared for they might hurt me most likely my father. But thanks God I was to get through that stage.
