Announcements

Has anyone announced yet? To friends? Family? Facebook? If so, how did you announce?! Post a picture if you have one!

If you haven't told, when and how do you plan to?

Re: Announcements

We have only told our parents. We were all together (me, DH, ILs and my mom) at the end of trick-or-treating, and we told the parents we had a picture to show them. It was our little family holding the positive pregnancy test! Of course, they're all so dense that none of them saw that DS was holding something until we told them to look closer...

Awe I like what you posted FabFour.

We've told DH's parents and brother. And my mom, brother and grandma. My mom and father in law have the same birthday so their birthday presents were about them being grandma/grandpa.

We plan on telling the rest of our family at Thanksgiving. DH is thinking he wants to do the one where you gather everyone for a group picture, say "we're having a baby!", and then capture their reaction.

One of my best friends is going to take an announcement picture for us to put up on Facebook after thanksgiving. Oh yeah so she knows too we haven't decided what yet though.

Some ideas...

Re: Announcements

We haven't announced anything yet. We haven't really told people yet either. Only 2 of my friends know, and my mum. I would like to tell people, it would make it seem a bit more real. (as if the morning(all-day)sickness, headaches,and heartburn don't make it real enough) lol.
Last time I had to announce at 10 week because I had a bump I could not hide any longer. So not sure when we will this time.
When I found out I was I took a "family" pic of our cowboy boots, and added a baby pair next to mine. So this is what we will use to announce it.

I've told one friend so far, and only because she knew we had been trying and she asked how it was going :-) I think we plan to tell family around Thanksgiving, I bought a cute "This Boy is Getting Promoted to Big Brother" tshirt for my DS and we'll probably have him wear it while we FaceTime :-) I also want to get some good picks of him in it for Facebook after we tell our families :-)

Re: Announcements

I love all these ideas!! We told just a few close friends. We are planning on telling the family at Christmas (I'll be 13-14 weeks) and then announcing it on FB after that. I've been scouring Pinterest for ideas for a photo reveal! When we were pregnant with DS, we had DD open a shirt at her 2nd birthday party that said, "Guess whooo's going to be a big sister?!" with an owl on the front. It took everyone awhile, but they got it!

I had a miscarriage at 13 weeks prior to DD, and it makes me VERY hesitant about announcing it too soon. It's so much harder to heal emotionally when you're having to explain to everyone why you're no longer showing.
