Ways to Announce a New Arrival
Posted by 33 on
We decided to announce at 19 weeks. We made a cartoon announcement with stick figures and such. I’d never post an ultrasound picture on Facebook (I think it’s weird, my husband thinks it’s creepy) so we posted it on Facebook after we sent out a few copies to our close relatives that live far away but that we wanted to know before everyone else did.
with my second child I had a bun in our oven with my oldest looking through the glass….the caption was she has to wait until november before the bun is ready
I wrote to my husband publicly to our friends on Facebook “Is it okay if we tell everyone we’re pregnant, now?”
It seemed like everyone got a good giggle out of it.
Announced my pregnancy two Halloween’s ago through my costume! I dressed up as an oven with an arrow pointing to my belly that said “bun” . . . Hahah. It confused a few people at first but they eventually all got the message.
Baby #1 – My mother-in-law had recently finished making a felt Christmas stocking for when her 1st grandchild was born and on New Year’s Day when we got to their place, asked “Can we take this home now or later?”
Baby #2 – Baby #1 spilled the beans to my in-laws. We asked my family, who lived in Indiana, if they would come to our house, Kansas, for Thanksgiving next year since that was our due date.
Baby #3 – Baby #2 wore Baby #1’s I’m a big sister shirt.
