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:
