How to announce pregnancy on fb?

I turn 12 wks on April Fool's Day and would love to make an announcement on facebook then. I think I'm starting early that morning telling people Happy April Fool's Day and hope noone tricks them and adding a wink at the end. A couple hours later I want to post something about being pregnant and then a couple friends that know are going to say something like "Yeah right! Everyone is posting this today."

How should I word my post about being pregnant to leave people guessing if I'm telling the truth or trying to trick them?

Do you have other kids? My cousin and his wife had a t-shirt made for their dd that had an owl on the front and said "who has a secret? I do i do" and on the back it said "I'm going to be a big sister! "

I miscarried at 13 weeks before... I wouldn't announce it via FB just because of my past. I sure wouldn't do it on April Fools either.

I don't see why I shouldn't. I have a great prayer support system, so even if something was to happen later, they'd be there for me. I can't hide it the whole time just in case something was to happen. In that case, they'd only know I was ever pregnant because I was walking around with a new baby in my arms, right? I waited till 12 wks, so what's wrong with telling now?
