One of the most exciting moments of your life is finding out you’re pregnant.
Here are some ideas to announce your exciting news........
Baby shoes are just the cutest!
Share a picture of those stylish tiny shoes to let the secret out, a simple picture of you and your partner holding a little pair of shoes is a sure give away.
If you have other children or pets already, you could also take a picture with all of your shoes/feet lined up together with the little baby shoes in the mix.
USE YOUR PETS:
If you are also an animal lover, chances are you became a pet parent first. Why not use your 'first baby' in your announcements?
If you have an inside pet, invite your closet friends and family around, place a bandana on your pet that says "mum and dad are getting me a human" and see how long it takes for someone to pick up on it!!
You could also just take a super cute photo of your pet wearing glasses reading a how to be a big brother/sister book.
BABY GIFT BOX:
Get an old shoe box or something similar, fill it with your positive pregnancy test, a onesie that says hello daddy, some baby shoes or blankie?
Wrap it up and tell your partner that you have brought them a gift.
Film their reaction as they open it up and see how long it takes them to catch on.
Get a few of your scan photos printed out, buy some stylish frames to put them in, wrap them up and gift them to your parents. Pair with a card saying " the first picture of your grandchild"
Get a professional to take some photos (or do with the timer on your camera) of you and your partner holding your scan photos and send to friends and family
INVOLVE OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS:
If you have other children then get them involved in announcing their soon to be sibling, they will love it!!!
Have an older sibling hold the scan photos, get them to wear a t-shirt with a message saying big brother/sister, hold up a sign or a book about becoming an older brother or sister.
