Finding out you are pregnant is one of the most exciting yet slightly terrifying times of your life.
As you are filled with a huge mixture of emotions as well as morning sickness you will start to plan how to announce your news.
Who will you tell first? In the early weeks you may be so excited you want the world to know or you may want to keep the news a little more low key. You will need to discuss how do you tell family and close friends? Should you gather them all together and tell them at the same time? There’s really no right or wrong way.
You may want to give a special gift or card to your immediate families announcing their going to be a granny, grandad, uncle, aunt ect.
Once you have told family and close friends it’s time to start thinking about how to tell everyone else. Many parents wait till after their 12 weeks scan to make that special announcement.
In the last few years pregnancy announcements have become very creative with lots of thought and planning. There are special photos, videos, t-shirts and much more.
Announcement on social media
There are 38million active social media user in the U.K. alone so announcing the big news on social media is likely to be the quickest way to spread the news no matter where in the world your family and friends are. The most popular ways of doing this is by posting your scan photo or a “we’re very excited to announce…” status. You will soon be receiving many notifications, text and calls as your news spreads.
A photo of a line of family shoes with a tiny super cute pair of baby booties can be simple and effective.
Photos are the perfect way to include siblings in the big news a popular way of doing this is have the sibling hold a sign/chalkboard.
Make it personal
Try to make your announcement personal to you. If your musical then how about a song? Maybe you can involve your hobby or where you met?
