Pregnancy is an exciting time for moms-to-be, so it’s natural to want to share that excitement with the whole world. Finding out that you’re expecting a baby is certainly one of life’s most thrilling moments, and half the fun is delivering the news. So, after you tell your partner the wonderful news, you get to announce it to the rest of your family and friends. However, announcing your pregnancy to your loved ones can be nerve-wracking sometimes, so you may find yourself anxious over how you’ll tell them and how they’ll react. Some people may prefer finding out the old-fashioned way – via phone call or a visit, but if you want to make your pregnancy announcement memorable, you can always try out some of these unique pregnancy announcement ideas.
So, if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to break the news, check out this list of five really fun and creative ways to announce your pregnancy to your family and friends!
This is a classic way of breaking the good news to your family members. Invite your family and close friends over for dinner, but before they arrive, put a hamburger bun inside of the oven. Once they arrive, call your parents or a few people into the kitchen to help you out with dinner and ask them to take the meal out of the oven. Don’t forget to photograph the big reveal and their reaction!
This works best when your pregnancy is completely unexpected by your family. Set up a group photo for all of your family members and friends to be in. Then instead of them yelling “Cheese” have them yell ” Sophie (insert your name) is pregnant!” Your friends and relatives will be in a complete shock and you will have their incredible reaction captured forever.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so you can take a pic of your positive pregnancy test and let your partner or family know that you’re pregnant. You can also get creative and set up a photo shoot with your home pregnancy test, which is also a cute and fun way to share the good news with everyone.
Countless pregnancy announcements often include ultrasound photos posted to social media. However, instead of simply sharing the ultrasound picture, think of a creative and unique way to reveal the image of your growing baby. Take a picture of your baby’s first ultrasound photo with a frame – this is simple but yet really cute idea for sharing the excitement with your friends and family.
This is another creative way to announce your pregnancy to friends and family. Prepare a baby-themed meal using foods like baby corn, baby carrots, baby back ribs, baby brussels sprouts… Get creative in the kitchen and bake sweet treats and desserts shaped like nursery items. If you’ve been trying for a baby, your partner and family will probably catch on pretty fast.
