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...

Quote:
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.

Re: How to announce?

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! ......?

Re: How to announce?

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!

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!"
