9 Fun Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy
Announcing that you are pregnant is one of the most exciting times of pregnancy – and one that you may have spent weeks counting down to. Whether you are telling your partner or telling friends and family, announcing your pregnancy is a special time, and something you will always remember.
So why not get creative with these cute pregnancy announcement ideas?
Telling your Partner
1. Best Dad
Buy your partner a mug with “Daddy” on it and give him a cup of tea in it. Watch and wait for his reaction!
2. Wrap it up
Wrap up your positive pregnancy test in a nice box with some pink and blue ribbon and give it to your partner over dinner.
3. Invite him to the birth
Get an invitation card and ‘invite’ your partner to attend the birth of your child on your due date at your nearest maternity hospital.
Telling your Family
4. Picture perfect
Give the grandparents-to-be a baby-themed picture frame with a ‘coming soon’ message inside. You could also include your approximate due date.
5. Bun in the oven
6. Baby boots
Wrap up some tiny baby shoes and present them to grandparents-to-be, or your siblings, to share your good news.
Sharing the news online
These days, a simple call or email to a friend just doesn’t seem to cut it when it comes to announcing your pregnancy. Making an announcement online has become the norm, but recently parents-to-be seem to be getting more and more creative with the way they share their good news. We can’t help but feel all gooey inside when we see some of the adorable announcements being shared on social media sites!
7. Share a picture
There are so many fun ways to announce your pregnancy online. Get creative with some fun pictures to share your good news.
8. Get siblings involved
If you have other children, get them to hold a sign saying ‘coming soon’ and a picture of the ultrasound. Take a picture of your brood and share with your family and friends online.
9. Wear it proud
Alternatively, kit your little one out in a ‘big brother/sister’ t-shirt and see how long it takes for your friends and family to notice!
