    So funny and/or cute!

    Uhm... no. That is gross.

    Meh, I guess if I had nothing else.

    Uhm…  I actually laughed. I think it’s pretty darned funny.

    I think it’s appropriate if you’re that kind of humour-loving couple (my family and espescially FIL’s would love it).

    Ummmm… not my thing. I have a pretty raunchy sense of humor, but my face in a toilet is not for other people to see!

    My initial reaction was “oh ok, wtf?” So yeah, don’t like it.

    i think it’s funny seeing it on pinterest… and having them being strangers.

    but i would NEVER do it and i would feel weird if someone sent this to me.

     

    also… are printed pregnancy announcements a “thing” now?? so confused. it seems a little weird to me… is a birth announcement not enough?

    That is just really weird, for a number of reasons.  The head in the toilet thing being one of them.  I just don’t think this a tasteful, family pregnancy announcement.  The puking (albeit fake) and the kid standing outside the bathroom door just rub me the wrong way, I don’t know why.  I’m not offended or anything.  I think it’s a funny concept.  But, I would not send this out to my family.  It sort of makes the husband seem jerky, too.  He’s outside the bathroom with a major grin while mommy is “throwing up”.

    I think it’s funny. =)  Depends on your audience, really.  If your friends/family are easy-going people, this will be funny to them~

    While funny, if I got this in the mail from a friend or family member I would think “really?? that’s how they wanted to announce it?!”

    I like the ones with the family’s shoes with an extra pair of baby shoes saying “our family is expanding by two feet”… Those are adorable!

    Yeah add me to the “what’s the point of pregnancy announcements” list. Can’t you just call people?

    Also on the never heard of pregnancy announcements bandwagon.  Personally I think they seem like a bad idea in the event something goes wrong and a tragedy is very public and even harder on a couple.

    The design is kind of on the crass side imho.

    Would much rather a birth announcement with pics of the baby. Never seen and, no offense, don’t understand the point of a pregnancy announcement. As to the style itself, to each her own.

    As a former bulimic, this while funny in its pregnancy context,  would probably scare my family.

    I’m all for humor though ! For the right couple it would be fabulous 😉

    I don’t like it. It looks like the dad and the little girl are really happy about the mom throwing up. I’m sure the intent is that they’re happy about the pregnancy, but the image makes it look like, “Yay, mommy’s vomiting again, hooray!”

    Gross.
