Honestly, yes, I think it would be odd.  Sorry.

No i think that is a cute idea and I have never seen it done before. A lot of people put a picture of the ultrasound picture on baby shower invites why cant you put it on a christmas card?

I think if you do it tastefully it would be nice. I have received a christmas card before once with an ultrasound picture proving that their baby is a boy, if you get what I mean. I didn’t think that was appropriate but I think yours would be fine.

Personally, I would be a bit uneasy, but I’m generally squemish about ultrasounds and bare pregnant bellies, so I may not be the best judge of the general consensus.

Honestly I would probably find that a bit odd. Maybe you could find a way to just write Merry Christmas from the baby on the way without putting the ultrasound picture in?

Yes it’s weird.  It really creeps me out when people make their ultrasound pic their profile pic on facebook.  I think it would make people super uncomfortable to have this on a Christmas card.  Maybe you could use a photo of you where you are in profile so the baby bump is clearly visible so the baby is still included somehow?

I guess my answer is two-fold. Personally, I would enjoy seeing the ultrasound. However, among my group of friends there have been several people who have been very vocal about how “gross” and “creepy” ultrasound photos are, and how much they judge people who share the photos around. I find their position bizarre, but it has made me very hesitant to share any of our ultrasounds with anyone! I would hate for you to share it and get some kind of hurtful comment from someone 🙁

Ultrasound pictures just seem so personal…I wouldn’t want to include it on my christmas card.  Could you possibly have text on the inside that shares that you are expecting your second child?  Maybe do two pictures of your son?

I love those kind of pics, but it would seem weird to find one in a Christmas card especially if I was only a friend of yours. 

Maybe just put it in the cards of those for close family members only?

Honestly – I’d find it a bit odd if I received a X-mas card with an ultrasound picture.  I vote don’t do it.

I would probably think it was a little weird if I received that Christmas card.

In this time of super oversharedness, I vote it’s too much.  I would be a bit grossed out.  Sorry hun.
