8 Great Ways to Tell the World: 'I'm Pregnant!'

ultrasoundFor my first two pregnancies, I was WAY too over-the-top excited to try to come up with a "cute" way to tell people. I told my husband through screams from the bathroom the first time and the second time over the phone at his office -- "Honey are you ready for number two?" I asked over the gurgles of our then 9-month-old. I called my parents before the pee stick was dry.

Still, I have always wanted to be one of those people who told everyone I was preggo in a unique and creative way. I asked around and found that I know a lot of really creative people who announced in a lot of really unique ways.

Here are 8 of the best pregnancy announcements. Hopefully it will spur some equally creative ways for you to let people know you are knocked up! See below:

Awwww congrats!  I am so happy for you. I remember reading how much you wanted a third but you hubby wasn't quite on board.  I went through the same thing though it was for my fourth.  Good luck with your third!

Nothing too fun here. My youngest was only 10 mos old when I found out #3 was coming. I asked my hubby if he ever noticed how so many things were in 3's like the 3 little pigs, 3 bears, 3 muskateers the 3 Smith kids.....;-)

If my head would of been on straight I would of bought white shirts and a onsie, then write #1, #2, #3 and the onsie would of said "oh $&@#!!!" Haha! I was extremely shocked by number 4.

Dang I wasn't done...

I was going to wrap bibs up that said grandma and grandpa but was too excited so I called them shortly after. I have also seen pictures of mom and dads shoes with a pair of baby shoes in it love that actually. I told my SIL about that for maternity pics. I have seen the older sibling in a big bro or big sis shirt a lot. It's always cute.

We just spilled the beans that I'm pregnant with our first this weekend!  To tell my husband, I had gotten him a book called "The Expectant Father," along with my own copy of "What to Expect When You're Expecting."  Since he's not so good at taking "look up here and smile!" pictures, we took a photo of us reading the books, close-up with the titles clearly showing and readable, with grins on our faces.  After we had finished calling relatives and such, we posted it to Facebook with the caption "Doing some summer reading...hope we finish by February!"  We got several comments on the uniqueness of it-great choice for people with camera-shy husbands!

I found out we were expecting about a month before Grandparents' day, and wanted to announce by sending happy grandparents day cards out to our parents, but he couldn't wait that long.  We sent the cards out that year, anyway.  I had hoped to be pregnant by father's day, so got a card for the husband.  I kept it in the glovebox so he wouldn't find I before I was ready to give it to him.  So, after taking the positive test, at like six in the morning I ran out to the car to retrieve it.

With my first I just told everybody. With the second I had the "I'm the Big Brother" t-shirt on my oldest and had my mom take off his coat. With the 3rd I decided to be unique. I created a photoalbum for my parents. Starting with my oldest's ultrasound picture followed by his baby/toddler/little boy pictures. I did the same with our second child. The last picture I used was the ultrasound of our newest. It took her a while to figure it out but it was hysterical when she realized what it meant. Even better that we had all family and friends over for are 2 oldest boy's birthday party (they were born a day apart).

I did the same both times with hubby....just blurting it out! ūüėä With our 2nd, I did the "I'm the Big Sister" shirt at Christmas, waiting for all to notice.

I just had a friend this week post a pic of her daughter holding a sign that said "Only Child, expiring March 2014".... Though that was cute!
