Anyone sharing their good news on Thanksgiving? We are in the last week of our first trimester, so the plan is to tell our extended family and friends on Thanksgiving day. I would love to hear if any others are planning to do the same, and to hear how you plan to share the news!

@missrain: Have everyone gather for a group picture, that your husband will take. He says, “Ok, on the count of three, everyone say ‘Missrain’s pregnant!” Then he takes the picture of everyone’s reactions when they figure it out! Or video would be even better.

@julies1949: That’s cute!!
I thought that it would be fun to put it on a “what I am thankful card” if your family participates in that tradition. Sometimes my family will play and everyone guesses who said what. I think my family would be very surprised!

@SaraP2012: Both of these ideas are awesome!
@missrain: We aren’t announcing the pregnancy on Thanksgiving, but we are announcing the gender to my parents. We wanted to keep it a secret until closer to Christmas but my mom is (jokingly–I think) blackmailing us. She hates balloons, like is afraid they’ll pop, so we are going to fill a black balloon full of blue or pink “It’s a Boy” “It’s a Girl” confetti (obviously depending on the gender), and make her pop it if she wants to know so bad (plus it will make a mess on her floor). So since she feels like being a jerk about finding out, we are going to make it awful and scary for her to fidn out, lol.

@megz06: hahah I LOVE that idea! You should make a video of her doing it and post it!

@SaraP2012: Lol I will be sure to do that! I want her to pop it, no one else. She is being a stinker about knowing, but it is her first grandchild, so she is crazy excited to know the gender, so why not make it fun to find out at her expense especially since she is being such a turd right now about knowing, lol.

I ordered a t-shirt a few weeks ago for our thanksgiving reveal! We aren’t going to say anything, I am just going to casually take my sweatshirt off and let people read the shirt. I am dying to see their faces when they figure it out!! I hope my mom or sister takes pictures.

@megz06: Oh please oh please oh please tape this!!! This is soo funny! and creative!
@DandSwedding: LOL! Love the shirt too! Hysterical!
We are revealing to DH’s family for Thanksgiving (we revealed to my family last week because we won’t be around for thanksgiving this year) I’ll only be 7 weeks but there is no way I can wait until Christmas.
We had ordered custom photo albums for our parents from our wedding over a year ago and they just came in (talk about slowness…) so we took pictures of our shoes, baby shoes and our pooch laying with the shoes. Its a hilarious shot. She looks completely miserable! And we had “The S family is growing by 2 more feet” underneath the photo on the very last page. It should be fun! DHs entire family is flying in so it should be a fun reveal. First grandbaby for his parents too 🙂

I will be sure to tape it and post it. I am hoping it goes the way we are planning. If someone pops the balloon for her I will be so peeved, lol.
@DandSwedding: Yeah this shirt is totally awesome. They will freak when they see it!

@missrain: We’re in a similar boat but we’re not revealing the pregnancy. We’re revealing the gender. 🙂 My husband’s family lives in California while we’re in Maryland. Everyone thinks we’re team green. BUT the truth is we found out the gender in September and thought Thanksgiving would be a great way to reveal it to everyone. So my husband’s family and my family are all coming to our house for Thanksgiving. I purchased a onesie that says our SON’s name. Let me add a photo. We had both our names already picked out so the name won’t be a surprise but the gender is going to be huge. I did however tell my little brother our plan (not the gender) so he can video tape everyone’s reaction.
How are you planning on announcing your pregnancy?
@julies1949: LOVE your plan.
@DandSwedding: That’s a great shirt!
