Creative ways to announce your pregnancy
1. Wearing Custom Apparel
With our first pregnancy, we ordered custom t-shirts to help make our announcement. My t-shirt had the word "Baby" across the chest and a big arrow pointing down toward my belly. My husbands shirt said "I love my pregnant wife". We had our families over for dinner and wore the t-shirts under an outer zip up sweatshirt. As the evening progressed, we nonchalantly to our sweatshirts off and waited for someone to notice. It didn't take long and was a huge success.
*Another thought- If you already have children you can purchase custom "Big Sister" or "Big Brother" shirts and do the same thing.
2. Creative Pregnancy Announcement Video
For our second pregnancy, we had our daughter make this announcement and we blasted it on Facebook so all our friends could see it. We got a lot of positive feedback about this idea. It made for an incredible keepsake too.
3. Positive Pregnancy Test
If the timing of your announcement falls around a family birthday or holiday, you could wrap your positive pregnancy test in a box and have the unknowing family member open the gift... just make sure they open it in front of everyone.
