How to announce?
How did you or how are you going to announce this pregnancy?

We've told family and a couple close friends but that's it. I feel like I should probably tell people ASAP since I'm totally showing, lol, but I'm just not feeling inspired. I've just posted the u/s picture to FB in the past but thought something more creative might be fun this time around.

Re: How to announce?
I'm so boring, I just posted it to FB after I told my mom.. LOL! And even though we were going to wait a while, we ended up spilling the beans only 4 days after we found out. We can never keep it a secret. Here is the exact post taken from FB...


So now that we broke the news to mom and my husbands manhood is still intact, I guess I can share the news w the facebook world. Schmidtlin #6 has taken up residency in my uterus and is due to make his or her appearence sometime in March 2013. Huge unexpected surprise but we are excited!
I sound like a 16 y/o with the mom bit... but she isn't much on big familes. :/ Thankfully she handled it surprisngly well and at least ACTED excited, as opposed to telling me "I have options" like she did with LO5.

I think it's cute when people take pictures of their LO's holding a cute little announcement. :)

Okay.. just had an idea. Pardon me if it's cheesy. LOL!
Have your LO 1 hold a "Thing 1" sign. LO 2 hold a "Thing 2" sign. And then either tape a "Thing 3 ...... coming in March" sign to your belly, or have a shirt made that says it across the belly, have Dh snap a pic and VOILA! ......?

I usually just post a picture of the 12-week ultrasound with a "We're excited to announce that Baby C--- is due on [due date]"

This time I got a little more creative and posted this picture:

The girls are holding signs with their birth order and birth month/year, and the ultrasound says #3 due in March 2013. It took forever to get both of the girls sitting nicely, holding their paper well, and smiling all at the same time, but we had fun! :giggle2:

Re: How to announce?
this is what i put on FB...i probably should have used brighter colors because it was pretty subtle, people had to really pay attention to get it, and a lot of people still didn't get it! But i just hurried and wrote it on a whim right before my kids were supposed to be getting ready for bed. i kind of liked that for weeks after new people were still commenting that they just "got it!"
