Best way to announce

I have only told family and very close friends that I'm pregnant. I'm almost 8 weeks. I have been reading about people announcing on facebook with the first US pic but trying to determine what would be the best way. Perhaps invite everyone for happy hour and announce then.....or call people, email, text? I just dont want to spread by word of mouth but rather from ME directly.

  • Invite everybody over for a special occasion,if they ask tell them it is a surprise and they'll find out when they get here.

  • We have done this 5 times now, and the best way is to simply call and tell them!

  • I told people one at a time when I was ready. Do whatever you're comfortable with and what feels right.
