Pregnancy Announcement Ideas | Mother Rising

To tell some of our family and friends that we were expecting (back in 2008), I decided to do a fun little photo collage. I dragged my husband/daddy-to-be on our front porch and snapped some pictures. Later, I used some editing software and made a pregnancy announcement.

Pregnancy Announcement Problems

I think this is one of many really cute pregnancy announcement ideas, but only if you change one thing.
If there was a full body shot of me I think this would have made more sense. I realized this when we were taking the pictures, but there was no timer on the camera so the only thing we could do was selfies.

Awkward Pregnancy Announcement

When we showed this to Matt’s dad he didn’t really get it… which was a little bit awkward. It went a little something like this:
Father-In-Law – Staring at photo…
Matt and Lindsey – Staring at father-in-law waiting for him to say congratulations…
Father-In-Law – Staring at photo…
Matt and Lindsey – Staring at father-in-law waiting for him to say congratulations…
Father-In-Law – Staring at photo… and says. “Thanks! I’ll put it in my office.”
Matt and Lindsey – Start explaining that we are pregnant and that’s why we gave him this random photo collage.
Father-In-Law – “Ooohhh! Congratulations!”

Did you create a pregnancy announcement?

So, now that we’ve giggled at my cheesy way of announcing our pregnancy, how did you do it?
Did you tell certain people at different times?
How far along were you when you announced it on facebook?
Leave a comment and let me know!

More Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

If you’re looking for more pregnancy announcement ideas for our second pregnancy announcement we took another picture. This time it made a little more sense.
For our our third baby pregnancy announcement I didn’t want to deal with photographing people so I chose safety pins.

Cute collage! And we had a similar announcement experience. For my first pregnancy, we bought our parents photo frames that said "#1 Grandparents" or something corny like that and put a photo of us in it. When we gave it to my mom, she looked at it, told us it was nice picture of us and she would put it on her bedroom dresser. My husband and I just started laughing and told her to read the frame. Even after doing that, my mom still seemed a little bit confused. Finally we just came out and told her - you are going to be a Grandma!!! : ) Oh well, the best intentions...
