Ideas for announcing pregnancy?

Does anyone have any good ideas on how to announce to our family that we are expecting? We are only 7 weeks so we don't plan on announcing it till we are 12 weeks, but I need some good ideas!

  • Lol my sis got a shirt from a website asking "does this baby make me look fat?!" That's a great idea.

  • Have a cookout or some sort of get together and have everyone pose for a picture that you'll be taking. Instead of asking them to "say cheese"---ask them to say "say (your name)'s pregnant!!!!"

    You will have a priceless picture of everyone's surprised faces and get to share your big news!

    Congrats to you! :D

  • Yeah I like the shirt idea. If there is an older sibling, have them wear a shirt that says, "I'm going to be a big brother/sister." For Halloween DH and I announced baby #2 by wearing a shirt that I made that said, "Bun in the oven." and I drew a little oven with a bun in it.

  • a recording a the heartbeat on the phone, and then play it after everyone gets settled, but the glow at the front door might give it away.
    good luck to you!

  • wait till you get the first ultrasound and ask the family over for a cook out, get a cake with the ultrasound printed on it..that would be sooo cool!

  • I recorded the baby's heartbeat and played it over the phone to the different family members. They didn't know what they were listening to. That is how they found out about our 1st DS. We are expecting our 4th. A few weeks ago, we announced that we were expecting. Everyone was so surprised. Our children are 13, 9, & 4. DH and I were surprised as well when we got the news from the Dr.
