How did you announce your pregnancy?

I won't be able to get my ultrasound until after Mother's Day which sucks because I wanted to send the ultrasound pics to my Mom and DH's Mom. I was thinking of having handprints of all the grandkids with the month and year they were born written under it and a small hand with "Coming in January 2010".

Any other unique ideas?

I also bought my son a shirt that reads "Only Child" which is crossed out and "Big Brother" written under it. After I saw that I couldn't pass up "I can grow people, what's your super power?" for myself.

How did you break the news to your loved ones?

  • I found out the week before Mother's day with my first pregnancy, so I went to the Health Dept to get a test, and had them fill out one of those certificates saying "positive pregnancy, due January....", and then I put them in a Mother's day card. For my mom I got a card for "Grandma", which she didn't get the point until she opened it up. She thought I had got the wrong card on accident lol. Until she saw the certificate on the inside, then she started crying!

  • My mother never never asked about me and husband having kids. We were married for two and half years when we got pregnant. With my first I called my mom and asked her what was she doing May 18 and it was then actually the previous September. She sighed and said she didn't know. Then I asked her well how would you like to become a grandmother on that day? She was a absolutely floored beyond belief. She didn't cry or scream she didn't rejoice with happiness. She couldn't talk at all. My husband's parents had five kids and then two grandkids already. When I told m mil she screamed in the phone with joy and laughter. I don't remember my second preg. announcement and my third I told my mother at a big family dinner where only my aunt, my husband and I knew. Mom was happy. CONGRATULATIONS MOMMY!!!

  • well.. the very first time i found out i was pregnate was in july of 2008. i was supposed to be due march 26th. my fiancee and i were soo happy, we just made trips over to family members houses to tell them... a week and a half later i miscarried, it hurt my fiancee more then it did me.... this pregnancy we found out i was pregnate at a doctor's office because i was worried about what was going on with my monthly cycle..i didnt think being pregnate was the problem but i let them do the test anyways... it came back positive.. i was shocked. i couldnt believe it...this happened on march,2nd,2009. i called only two people after the appointment, my fiancee, and my grandmother. since i dont have my mom anymore i turn to her. my fiancee and i were more scared to tell everyone this time. we have only just begun sitting down with our families.... my father now knows and is still trying to get used to he idea of being a granfather....

He called my dada and said "you miht need to get another rifile ready for hunting sseason in a couple of years" and his dad was just "shocked" lol, it was all very funny... we were going to wait and do something creative but i am TERRIBLE about keeping secrets!

  • try going to the store and getting a stamp of small hand prints and doing a extra clay print and write under it your due date
