Pregnancy Announcements

Hi everyone!  With Christmas around the corner DH and I are planning to announce within the next 2 weeks and figured it would be fun to share stories!

1. How far along are you/due date?
2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends?
3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how?

Feel free to post any picture announcements too!

Re: Pregnancy Announcements

  • 1. 7+1, EDD 7/23
    2. We will be telling close friends this weekend at our annual wine tasting party (obviously because I wont be able to partake and everyone knows I am a huge wine drinker- so they'll be suspicious!) and telling our families on Christmas day
    3. We will probably announce on social media either on Christmas after telling our family or the day after Christmas because I'll be 10 weeks and we are sending extended family and other friends Christmas Cards with some type of announcement.  (waiting for our ultra sound picture on Friday and then will take our Christmas card photo)  Plus our families will probably blab so we want to get the word out before them haha.

    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends? Parents already know, and a couple of friends. The rest of the families are being told on Christmas.

    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how? We will probably post to FB either on Christmas or New Year. Still undecided. Still thinking about ideas for this yet.

    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends? On Christmas day is the plan so far! I'm hoping I get an ultrasound at my doctor's appointment& then we are going to take a picture with the ultrasound& buy a cute picture frame that says family(or something like that)& give one to my parents& one to his! And that's all it will take for everybody else to find out! Lol

    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how?
    No social media!

  • I still don't know how or when I will announce it. As excited as I am about the pregnancy, it's almost like I don't want to tell anyone at all.  I told my mom, sister, and boss, but that's it.

    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends?   I have my first u/s tomorrow so we may tell our parents soon after that.  I think we will tell extended family at Christmas if all looks fine.  I would actually be fine waiting to tell our parents at Christmas as well.  It's been nice just keeping it to ourselves.  We've told our close friends already.  I don't know if that's weird or not but we always tell close friends before family.  

    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how?   I think we will announce on social media at Christmas also.  I took some pictures of the kids at the Christmas tree farm over the weekend with a chalkboard sign that said "Adding another stocking next year...Baby #5 due July 2018" so if I don't post it before/on Christmas it's kind of lame to use the stocking line, right?  Didn't really think that through lol.  I'll be 10 weeks at that point.  It's a little earlier than we typically announce on social media but I think I'll be fine with that.

  • 1. How far along are you/due date?  9w 2d

    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends?  we already told both immediate families, a few close friends, and both sets of bosses. We are planning to tell the second tier of family/friends after our u/s on the 11th or maybe after the NT scan on the 18th if everything is ok. 

    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how?  Not sure we will do something on social media...if we do it’ll probably after we know the genders and are much closer to the end. Might just wait til the babies are born and post something then

  • Announcement related question... I’m 9w4d today. We told my parents over the weekend and plan to tell our families on Christmas.

    My mom just told me she’s making ornaments with my ultrasound picture for everyone who will be at Christmas... it makes me uncomfortable because I’m not super close with my extended family and the idea of my US hanging on their trees weirds me out. I told her it makes me uncomfortable and she won’t relent.

    Are my pregnant hormones overreacting?? Or is this weird to anyone else?
    acunamatada
  • @samjjorgensen yeah that's weird. I could see doing it for the grandparents and very close family members but the idea of like my second cousin having my US hanging on their tree would weird me out.

  • 1. How far along are you/due date?
    8 weeks, EDD July 15

    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends?
    Have only told two of my best friends and my immediate family. I will tell a few more as I see them in the next coming weeks. Christmas Eve we will most likely reveal to the big party we go to! 

    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how?
    honestly- I am so not into announcing via social. I think I would like to keep it to close family and friends. I’m a neurotic FTM and I just am not comfortable sharing this news with people I don’t see on a regular basis. (Or family) 

    @samjjorgensen you poor thing! It sounds like it’s a nice idea- but I completely understand your wanting to keep your sonogram picture private- perhaps she can use another graphic- that will help the point across...? If she insists on doing it lol
  • @samjjorgensen yeah that is kind of awkward I wouldnt know what to do with it if I was given one. I would ask if there is something else she can dk instead

    2. When will you be announcing to close friends/family? We told both of our parents already and are waiting to tell siblings at Christmas, close friends will be after that 

    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how? We’re going to wait til 12 weeks. We have a Disney trip planned for the middle of January so we might take some sort of photo reveal when we’re there
  • @rocky092 we are headed to Disney mid January as well and thinking the same thing! @comealongponds
    So Canadian I love the Tims announcement

    How far far along are you/due date?
     7 weeks due July 24

    When will you be announcing to close friends and family? 
    Most know. I’m a wineo and have been trying for a while. When I said no to wine it was a dead give away. I also had some spotting while my mom and sister were visiting so I had to tell them. 

    When will you be announcing on social media and how? 
    Well originally before my complications I had our family Xmas  photo shoot planned and so I got a custom ornament that said each of our family members name on it Mommy, daddy, DD name and then baby with Xmas 2017 written on the bottom and I was going to gift it to him during the photos and capture his reaction and the photos of us and the ornament would have been given to close family and possibly posted on social media. But now that’s a no go so we will either announce on our vacation in January or post a photo on Christmas of the ornament on the tree. With our dd we were at our favourite ball teams game and we had someone take a pic of us holding up a baby Jersey with our last name on it with the year of babies due date. People loved it. So no decision yet but I’ve been thinking of a few different things.

    LOL I'm right there with ya! I'm a bartender and my coworkers/friends know my love of whiskey runs deep. I was clever with denying drinks for a few days and now it's just too suspicious. I'm like a little kid trying to hide peas under the table. I accept drinks and then dump them/hand them off when no one is looking. It's really heartbreaking.

  • @lavillard whiskey is my jam too!! It’s actially pretty much all I drink. I miss it!

    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends?
    Family will find out at Christmas. My husbands parents already have 8 grandchildren so we got a onesie for the youngest that says “I’ve been promoted to big cousin”. My parents don’t have any grandchildren so we got an ornament with a little snowman family and there’s a little heart and the word baby on the belly of the wife  :)


    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how? I have no clue. Definitely not until after 12 weeks. Hopefully I can keep our families from putting anything out there.

    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends? 
    So far no one knows besides H and I...except my work husband, who I had to tell because I needed a wing man at work for when I was feeling really sick. I ordered my toddler a big brother shirt, and myself a Christmas shirt that says something like "extra merry this year" with baby footprints on the belly. I guess my plan is for my son and I to wear our shirts to Christmas and just wait for family to notice. We have three Christmases to attend, on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday of Christmas weekend (for my in laws, my dad, and my mom - divorced parents), so hopefully it will still be a surprise by the time we get to Christmas day. 

    Has anyone used the big brother shirt to announce before, and if so, how did you execute it? Just wait for people to notice? 


    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how? Not sure yet...was thinking about posting something on New Years Day, but my 12 week scan is the following day and I'm oddly afraid of posting and then getting bad news the very next day.

  • 1. 7 weeks EDD 07/26 
    2. I have told my mom (she lives with us), and a sister-in-law (Bc I work with her). We are always pregnant within six months of another sister-in-law. The day we found out I was pregnant with #4 was the day she announced they are expecting #4 in June. So I bought their baby a onsie that says "Big Cousin" and we are exchanging gifts tomorrow. 
    My kids have no clue. My daughter has been begging me for a baby sibling. I told her to ask Santa. So she wrote a sweet letter to Santa about her wanting a baby sibling. So for Christmas she will open a big sister shirt, her brother will open big brother, then current baby of the family will open his big brother shirt with a big brother book. The whole family will be there and I am taping it to share online.

  • 1. How far along are you/due date?
    I'm 9+3, due date 7/9/18.
    2. When will you be announcing to close family/friends?
    We told all our close family right around Thanksgiving (with the exception of my DH's father because we haven't seen him in person yet). We put my son in a big brother shirt. No one noticed at either gathering so we had to call it out, so it failed miserably, hah. I told close friends right away, even before family. 
    3. When are you announcing on social media (if applicable) and how?
    I think we're going to send out Christmas cards to announce it even though it's before the second trimester. Social media will probably come well after that.
