Announcing Your Pregnancy: 6 Ways to Make It Memorable


by For Two Fitness February 25, 2015

If you’re like most moms-to-be, you probably found out you were pregnant in the usual way: by peeing on a stick. However, when it comes time to let others in on your secret, you have the opportunity to do something far more creative with your pregnancy announcements. Read on for six suggestions to help you share your exciting news with the world.

PregnancyEveryone loves this kind of math.

1. Oh, Brother (Or Sister)

We’ve all heard the expression, “Out of the mouths of babes.” There’s nothing cuter than letting a proud future big brother or big sister spill the beans. Film the moment you tell your older child the big news and share it with your friends and family members. Not only is this an adorable way to let others know you’re pregnant, but it also gives older kids their very first important role as a big sib.

2 Trick AND Treat

Got a bun in the oven? Fans of Punk’d will enjoy this trick which gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “What’s cooking?” Invite over friends and family members; when they’re all gathered in the kitchen, ask a special guest of honor to check what’s in the oven. They’ll all be confounded by the sight of a solitary bun. See how long it takes everyone to wise up to the joyful joke.

An alternate take on this announcement? Arrange to have your good news shared via fortune cookie, and invite your loved ones over for the most exciting Chinese take-out meal of their lives. 

3. Go Social

If you’re far away from friends and loved ones and can’t tell them in person, here’s your chance to “win” social networking for the day. Share news of your pregnancy via Facebook post and watch the “Likes” pile up. Top it off with a picture of your positive pregnancy test and get ready for an all-time “Likes’ record…at least until that first baby picture appears.

4. That’s A Wrap

If you’ve just found out you’re pregnant, you probably can’t wait to get your hands on some itty bitty baby booties and other gear. Combine your newfound nesting instincts with your announcing duties by picking out a few cute baby items — from an adorable critter hat to a rattle. Wrap them up and bestow upon special people in your life as news of your impending arrival.

5. Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve

Or in this case, wear your words on your shirt. From “Body By Baby” to “Running For Two”, announce the news of the pea in your pod by wearing it on a tee-shirt and wearing it around town.

6. A Surprise of Their Own

For those interested in an “are they or aren’t they” approach, skip the words and keep ’em guessing until you start to show. How far can you make it before the bump makes itself known through your stylish maternity activewear?

There’s nothing more exciting than finding out you’re going to have a baby, but sharing the news with your loved ones and friends is a close second. Borrow one of these six great ideas or come up with one of your very own to share your amazing news in style.
