One of my girlfriends, for her second child, put a onesie on her first child that said “Big Sister” to announce it to Daddy, and then she put up the pics of that on her blog!

For Moose, I told my Dad with a small framed picture of the ultrasound. He loved it, but didn’t get it right away. I told my mom about Moose on her birthday with a picture of the ultrasound in a birthday card. Wombat hasn’t really gotten that kind of introduction because we’re scared. However, we did tell our friends after midnight on New Years.


Also, the cutest thing I heard about, besides the big sis shirt mentioned above, was the mom-to-be painted plates that announced the pregnancy, put cookies on the plates, and invited her parents and in-laws. It was such a cute idea.

We were fortunate that christmas was right around the corner πŸ™‚

We took newborn diapers and wrapped one up in tissue paper and put it in a christmas gift bag.

We gave one to my mom and step father, one to my father and one to my Mother-In-Law. It was a great way to announce it πŸ™‚

I was boring and just flat out told everybody. I had miscarried before, so I didn’t want to get too excited until I saw a heart beat at least.

We announced at Thanksgiving – saying our youngest puppy was going to be a big brother. Of course we had to clarify that we WEREN’T getting another dog. πŸ™‚

I think we will probably gift our mothers with the pandora baby carriage charms.  That should get the point across : )

Hubby:  My plan was to give him a onesie with his favorite NFL team on it, but TTC didn’t take as long as expected so I wasn’t prepared and it was more of a “um hun, you busy?”…and I showed him the + test πŸ™‚

My parents:  We invited them to brunch for their anniversary (good timing) and gave them each a gift “announcing” the pregnancy…a “#1 Grandpa” shirt and hat for my dad and a “I Love Grandma” bib for my mom.  Watching their faces as they put two and two together was priceless.

@PrncssDva: Great posts!  I’m in the same boat as you, we’re not TTC yet but we’re very close.  A honeymoon baby would be perfect!

I had all these plans to do something cutsy, but in the end I just blurted it out as soon as Darling Husband got home. πŸ™‚

I don’t remember where I read this, could have been on here, but it’s definitely how I’m going to announce to family after that miscarriage waiting time-frame.

Wait for a family gathering and set up a group picture.  “Say Cheese on 3! 1…2…3…” *check photo* “Cousin your eyes are closed (lie)…we have to take it again.  This time say “PrncssDva’s Pregnant on 3!”  Camera is already in hand, so you can capture the facial expressions of everyone when you say it!

Hope that makes sense! haha
