Pregnancy Announcement Ideas
Try the different and unique pregnancy announcement ideas if you’re interested or the simple ones would do too. In either case, your aim is just to tell about your pregnancy and the message would be delivered perfectly.
Telling your Partner
Your partner is the first person to know about your pregnancy, after all, he’s the person that made it possible for you to have the kid. Telling him is the first step and probably the easiest one as he’s also smart enough to know that you may be pregnant, he just needs a confirmation from you.
Some women who did this in the most unique way shared their experiences:
“I told my husband in a fortune cookie,” says one mom. “I ordered take-out, then swapped my custom fortune cookie for the one from the restaurant. He loved it!” Another says, “We were at a restaurant and I had the waiter put a pacifier on our dessert plate. My husband’s reaction was classic.”
Don’t feel like putting in a ton of extra effort? No problem – simple announcements can be every bit as momentous as elaborate ones. “I just left the digital test on the bathroom counter, and when my husband went in, he saw it,” says one mom. “He was speechless.”
Step One done! Now time to move ahead.
Telling The Family
He/She might be your kid but he’s also gonna have a grandfather, grandmother, nephews, and nieces and many other infinite relatives who are gonna love him/her too.
First, let’s discuss some of the unique and awesome ideas that can make you pregnancy more exciting for your family. Some couples who did this share their pregnancy announcement ideas below:
“I set up a lunch date with my mom, and when we met at the restaurant, I said, ‘We’re so glad to see you!’ She was confused and said, ‘We, who?’ All I had to do was smile and put my hand on my belly. She got it immediately.”
“I sent six blue and five pink carnations to my parents and my in-laws with a note attached that said, ‘Some are pink and some are blue. The color there’s more of is your clue.’ His parents got it right away, but I had to explain it to mine.”
“I plan to create a holiday card saying, ‘Happy holidays from us, dog, and a baby on the way.’ Then I’ll nonchalantly ask my parents to proofread it,” says one mom. “I have a feeling they’ll have to read it a few times!”
Have an older child? Get her in on the act. “I taught my 2-year-old to respond to the question ‘Where’s the baby?’ by pointing to my belly. I recorded it on video and sent it to all the family. I got so many excited calls and texts back, it was great!” says one mom.
Don’t want these kinds of blushy methods? Simply arrange a dinner for everyone and tell them about the pregnancy directly by making them eat something that signifies happiness. Or if your family is sort of tech-savvy just tell them over a video chat, you can save a lot of hard work by that too.
Telling Your Friends
Many women like to tell their friends on the phone or in person so that they can witness the reaction firsthand. Telling your best friend isn’t a hard job to do as they are the person who knows your darkest secrets so this would be just like a normal talk. “Hey, I’m pregnant” Best Friend: “Cool, congrats”. That’s it! no formalities nothing.
For normal friends some different types of pregnancy announcement ideas shared by other women are mentioned below:
If your friends live far away or you’d rather tell people en masse, you have lots of options.
“I wrote a poem and mailed it to my friends,” one mom says. Explains another, “My husband and I designed an announcement and posted it on the web. We then sent our friends an email with a link to the announcement. They loved it!”
Or maybe just posting a status update on any of the social media would do! One thing to watch out for: Make sure you’ve told all the super-important people in your life before putting it out on the web. Otherwise, some may be hurt that they found out at the same time as 800 of your closest “friends.”
Telling Your Co-workers
Work is the one place where creative announcing is probably not the way to go. It’s best to err on the side of professionalism. So save the cute announcements for friends and family, and be as straight up at work as possible.
The best pregnancy announcement ideas? Make an appointment with your supervisor and tell her first, then tell everyone else at once. “I know an attorney who emailed all the co-workers together, immediately after telling her boss,” says Greenfield. “This worked great because no one felt left out.”
To insert a little fun into the process, you can send them an email containing an element of surprise. For example, the subject line might say something about wanting to fill them in on your latest project, and inside you can attach ultrasound photos and mention your due date as the project’s estimated completion date.
Your Supervisor, HR might not be that interested in your life and also would have a tension for the maternity leave you would take in future. Don’t think wrong of him/her, they aren’t wrong. Put yourself in their shoes, they need to run the company/business, they can’t afford wasting of time and a holiday from your side.
In the worst case remember, if your boss and co-workers are somewhat lukewarm in their reaction, it’s no biggie. After all, you’ll have plenty of other people to celebrate with.
