We sent a book to his parents “Chicken Soup for grandparent’s soul”.  We had a hard enough time getting a hold of my parents, so once I corralled them, I just told them!

i thought about giving my parents a “bubbe” and “zaideh” mugs (yiddish for grandma and grandpa), but i think i’m too superstitious to give them actual objects before we’re far enough along. so we’re probably just going to be doing the boring verbal announcement.

I don’t know about telling my parents but my friend came up with an awesome idea of how to tell Fiance when I am pregnant.

He is a huge Toronto Maple Leafs fan and so I am going to get him a baby sized jersey to tell he when I am pregnant! How cute is that!!!! Are your parents sports fans?

I saw this on America’s Funniest Home Videos and thought it was too cute..

It was the to-be grandpa’s birthday. The candles were lit on the cake and everyone started singing.. but instead of his name, they said “grandpa” it was great!

@naangel – I know – I think I might buy one when we are trying – because I know I will want to tell him as soon as I know!

i normally steer away from the baby threads but this one is very cute. I’m keeping the jersey idea (or little cheerleader outfit) for my hubby, haha. By the time we get around to it, i’m sure his parents will be asking us weekly so it’d just be a verbal announcement “yeah, we’re preggo gimme a break grandma!” haha

I’m with melissabegins – I don’t normally post on baby threads because we’re so far from having one, but I love these ideas! I just wanted to say that I loved the way Jenna (Mrs. Avocado and ThatWife) told everyone on her blog – she posted a picture of a onesie that said “that one” (the blog nickname for the baby – following her “that wife” and “that husband” thing) along with a positive pregnancy test. That image spoke ten thousand words – it was so cute!

My brother has a million kids, so he doesn’t bother doing anything special anymore but his 1st was kind of cool. We used to take a week long extended family vacation every summer (before the millions of kids my siblings started popping out, now there are waay too many people) and the adults would get together every night after the kids (my younger cousins) went to bed and play games. We played trivial pursuit one night and it was my brothers turn to ask a question (he was holding the card) and said “What newly married couple is due to have a baby in April?” It took everyone a couple seconds to get it (they had just gotten married literally about 2 weeks before), but it was kind of a cool way to break the news.

We have a little doggie that my in-laws just adore and spoil.  We got a t-shirt for him off of etsy  that read “Big Brother!”  and had him run into their house.  It was really sweet once they put it together!

@WDW… I love Jim Shore! I wish I would have thought to do that!

@Future Mrs.Martin…My husband is also a Toronto Maple Leafs fan. I didn’t get to do the mini hockey thing bc he was the one who made me take the test since I had an awful cold and needed to know what kind of medicine I could take. So, enjoy that!!!

Aw, these are such cute ideas!  I’m gonna have to remember these for when I get prego.  I had always thought I’d just put the sonogram in a frame and give it to my mom as a present.  Now I have some better ideas!
