Fun Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy


Whether you just found out youíre pregnant or youíve known for a few months, announcing your pregnancy to family and friends can be a lot of fun. Some may want to wait until a certain time during their pregnancy, while others want to call everyone immediately after finding out themselves. 

Telling The Father
Have a romantic dinner for two with candle lights, it may be your last time for a while, between morning sickness and raising your little one. Serve up baby carrots, baby back ribs and anything else you can think as baby. At the end, pour apple juice instead of wine and hand him a present. Inside you can have a tiny baby bib that says, ìI heart My Daddyî   
or a pair of baby booties. 

If you canít tell the father right away because heís away on business, or deployed try sending him a care package. Inside the box place a few baby items, everything in blue and pink and a baby naming book in the center. Place a note on top of the book with, ìI need a name soon, Iíll be here by June.î Or whenever the baby is due. 

You can also see how long it takes him to figure it out. Go to the dollar store and pick up a bunch of small baby items, a bib, rattle, bottle, booties, etc. For a week, leave an item laying around the house where he is bound to find them. At the end of the week if he hasnít figured it out yet, prepare the big gift. Have a large teddy bear sitting at the dinner table in the seat beside him, make sure there is a bib wrapped around him and maybe a sign that says Hi Daddy.  

Telling Family and Friends
Show up to a family gathering wearing a shirt that announces your state. These days there are a ton of shirts out there with clever sayings, ìBaby on Board,î ìA Bun in the Oven,î or something related to the pregnancy. The moment you walk in or take off your jacket everyone will figure it out without you ever having to say a word. Now, get ready for the tears and excitement. Youíll be answering a ton of questions. 

If you already have children you may want to call the grandparents up and tell them that the next Christmas they may want to add one more to the list. 

If this is the first grandchild, you may want to get a bracelet link for your mom that reads, ì#1 Grandmaî or grandparent t-shirts. This will not only be a great present for them but something they will cherish and love forever. 

No matter when you spread the news it can be a lot of fun, just think creative and let the pieces fall. You may even want to try catching all of it on video, so think ahead and prepare for the BIG moment, and Iím not meaning the birth.
