How do you tell your in-laws you're pregnant?

So, I haven't seen my DH relatives since last Dec. They don't know I'm pregnant and my DH and I agree, you can't tell them something like this by phone or Facebook. But, my SIL is adopting and my MIL has cancer. Popping up now to say, "Hey! I'm pregnant!" right now sounds rude and intruding in their current situation. How do I tell them, and when should I?

  • I don't think there's anything wrong with telling them over the phone. I'd just call them and tell them.

  • DH told them over the phone for our last 2 children, we told them in person for our 1st pregnancy because it was twins.
