Re: How to tell the family? Help!

We did the shirt thing .... and it took a while before everyone got it! LOL! My sister got it right away, but my mother, we had to actually sit her down and tell her..... lol...was so funny!

Re: How to tell the family? Help!

I had a friend of mine send one of those digital art things where it's of a pencil drawing something out. (I want to say it's a doodle pad- does this make sense?) So she had it draw stick figures of her DH, then her, then her three girls, then the dog, then a belly on her with an arrow pointing to it saying "due to arrive in early Oct 06!"

Good luck! We always emailed everyone but our parents. They got a phone call. And the last baby we didn't tell anyone until my brother calls everyone telling them him and his wife are pregnant and because I busted out laughing, we had to tell everyone before he spilled the beans. (our kids are 8 days apart)

Congrats!!!

The back of DS #1 said== member since 2004
The back of DS #2 said== member since 2006

We announced it at my DS's birthday party and I was 16 weeks. The family LOVED it

Re: How to tell the family? Help!

We did the "Guess What? I'm a big brother!" when pg with DS2. We sent the email out a few days after we found I was pg.

I like option 1, though, because it is very original/different.
