With Ds1 we had just bought a house and the first thing we did before anyone saw it was decorate the nursery. When our parents came to see the house for the first time, we closed the door and said there was a surprise in there for them.

With Ds2, we got Ds1 a shirt that said only child with an x through it and big brother underneath. We too his picture in it and used it for his upcoming birthday party invites. It backfired a bit since my aunt got the mail and figured it out before my moms even got delivered. Oops!

For my last FB anouncement I made a stick family pic with us and my stick person was pregnant. Almost no one noticed and that was AFTER I'd posted my status as "I just put the two big brothers in bed for the night." and the only one who got that prob already knew.

With our first it was mil's birthday and we gave mil a card saying happy birthday "grandma" in lots of ways- nana, memaw, etc. Took her forever to get it even though it was her first grandchild lol

With the next baby (if ever) I want to put a family picture on a puzzle- then send pieces one by one to my folks in TX and last piece be my tummy with a card saying- whats missing? Baby coming soon! Or something like that

Re: The DS Collection for "How To Announce Your Pregnancy" ideas :) (post your idea!)

We told my parents on Thanksgiving. They came to our house and we'd actually just redone the flooring in most of our house. They set their things down in their bedroom and then I went and said "Ooh, do you want to see the floor in here (the nursery) and opened the door. It was all set up for one baby" It was about a week later when we found out it was twins. We had been planning to do the same thing with DH's parents, but after we found out it was twins DH couldn't wait until that weekend when they were coming to visit so he told his mom on the phone that we were pregnant and it was twins.

With DD1 we told our parents over the phone, but we had wallet prints made up of her ultrasound. On the bottom we put Peanut Duncan with her due date on it and sent them out.

With DD2 I got to tell my DH while he was driving back to NJ from CT to work for the week while we were waiting on the movers. He had just left..... not the reaction I wanted "I want proof" this was after 7yrs of trying, we had just given up since we starting a new chapter in our lives. He then called his mom, and she got our insurance all set up so I would not miss one apt when we moved. He was just getting out of the Navy so it was a good new start. We then did the same thing with the pic.

With DS1, I wrapped up a pair of baby booties and gave it to my parents. DH just flat out told his parents on the phone. With DS2, I found a shirt that said Only Child crossed out, and Big Brother underneath. I put it on him when we were going to be seeing them. I wanted to wait and see how long it took people to notice, but DH got too impatient and pointed it out.
