Unique Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy


Are you expecting a baby and looking for a great way to let friends and family know? Here are some unique ways to announce to family and friends that you're a proud parent-to-be.

Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

Spread the news about your pregnancy the old fashion way with snail mail. Many parents-to-be, including celebrities, are announcing their good news the same way many announce the actual birth of their babies. Send family and friends photo announcement of your pregnancy and be sure to include the due date. Not only is this a great way to say hi to friends and family you may not always see, it's a great way to tell loved ones who may be too far away to watch your belly grow.

If your computer savvy, you can make them from the privacy of your own home. Just put together a layout or download one from the internet; import your picture, and get printing. If you're not a computer whiz or do not have the time you can easily find an online greeting card retailer that specialized in announcements. Just send them the chosen picture, pay for their services, and wait for them to come in the mail.

What You Need:

Say it with T-Shirts

Pregnancy looks great on you, why not make it fashionable for everyone else. Buy a few plaint white tee shirts and some fabric paint or permanent markers and get busy. Personalize each shirt for each member of your family by labeling it with their new title. Make the new grandparents shirts that say "Grandma," and "Grandpa". For your brothers and sisters, label them with "Uncle," or "Aunt." Roll each other shirts up and tie them with ribbon.

Gather everyone together for dinner or snacks and pass out the shirts. The only thing you have left to do is watch everyone open their shirt and figure out what the secret message is! You may want to keep a camera on hand to keep a lasting memory of everyone's reactions.

What You Need:

Sweet Messages

Make your pregnancy announcement even sweeter with some sugar cookies or cupcakes. This works particularly well if you have a huge family or if you want to let your co-workers know about your pregnancy. Purchase or bake the confection of your choose. Decorate the cupcakes or cookies with blue and pink icing, sprinkles, and a few baby themed decorations like tiny rattles and bottles.
