Pregnancy announcement planning is an incredibly individual experience for every expectant parent. You might want to make yours moving and emotional, or perhaps you’d rather showcase your sense of humour. Whatever pregnancy announcement style is right for you, we’ve got some ideas that can help you figure it out.
There’s no right answer to the question of when to announce your pregnancy. Some people make the announcement to close friends and family almost immediately, while others prefer to wait until the three-month mark. Choose what you’re most comfortable with.
When you’re thinking about how you want to make your pregnancy announcement, there are some questions you may want to ask yourself first. Think about who you’re planning to announce the pregnancy to. You may, for example, want a different announcement for your parents compared to one for your friends.
You should also think about where you’re going to make your announcement. Elaborate announcements might be more appropriate for private areas where you have more space, and your family members can process the information in a way that is most comfortable for all involved.
Making your pregnancy announcement on social media can be as low key or as over the top as you want to make it.
Make a poster of your favourite movie, or pick one where pregnancy is the main plot point. Replace the characters on the poster with images of yourself and your partner.
This one can be funny, and it won’t actually cost you anything.
This onesie idea is so cute, and it’s a really fun way to post your social media pregnancy announcement.
If either of you are sports fans, then this idea might be the one for you. Use the kit for your favourite team, or club, and let all sports fans know your joyous news.
You can put together a cute gift as a way of making your pregnancy announcement. Make each gift personal for the recipient. For example, perhaps grandma would like a t-shirt, or the uncle would like a ‘new uncle’ hoody.
