Creative ways to reveal pregnancy?

I bought our youngest dog a shirt that says “I’m going to be a big brother!”. My folks already have grandkids, so it isn’t a huge ordeal to them.

For DH’s family, we bought his sister a onsie that said “Wild about auntie” on it and gave it to her for her birthday. They are so excited! It’s the first on his side (he’s the only one married as well).

Not that creative – it wasn’t a planned pregnancy, and I’ve been so sick that I don’t really care about creativeness.

I sent my parents flowers for Easter and signed the card, Love – 78h2o, DH, & baby N. (EDD: 12/5/12). They called me immediately, crying happy tears.

A friend announced her pregnancy to a group of friends at Christmas party where there was a gift swap… they wrapped up a copy of the DVD “Due Date” and put a sticker underneath that said, Baby S, EDD: date. I thought that was cute!

I still haven’t figure out if/how I will announce on Facebook… maybe with a profile photo with a chalkboard in front of my belly that says baby BOY or baby GIRL N. We’ll see… I also might wait until baby is born!

@78h2o: My friend changed her facebook profile picture to a simple picture of the spaghetti sauce brand “prego” I didn’t get it until I read some of the comments. haha. I thought it was really really cute though.

@yellowshoe:  A friend from high school did the same thing – I would have totally stolen that idea if she hadn’t done it first. Super cute!

My friends did a photo one, they stood in front of a brick wall, and used chalk to make a plus(+) sign between the two of them, and an equals(=) sign after.  They finished up the equation with a great big number 3.  Its was super cute.

We sent everyone Christmas cards announcing it. You could really do it for any holiday or no holiday at all. I think the surprise of it being in a piece of mail really got people. Everyone loved it.

@babybuzz:  this cracking egg idea is soooooo super cute, i love it! and so many other inspirations here!

we weren’t very creative (too much in shock and judgement clouded by joy), so just sent out an email to our parents (they live very far away unfortunately) with the subject – great news, see attachment, and attached a photo of the pregnancy test Smile. they were overjoyed nonetheles!!

Our plan for when we are pg is to secretly paint a nursery (with the help of my sister because she’s awesome and I’m hoping will paint us some murals, so she would know already) and get a crib then tell my parents we painted our guest rooms and send them up to have a look. Same with FI’s parents. We live in a newly built home so we paint rooms here and there and they always want to see new work. I’m hoping if we get pregnant fast enough after the wedding, and we play it casual in terms of telling them about the painting that they won’t expect it (in law’s that is).

MIL scouts for signs and symptoms SO EARLY.. to the point it’s annoying. When SIL announced she was preg, MIL went upstairs cause she already had a damn gift for her. I could tell SIL was bummed that it took the wind out of her sails.
