10 Unique ways to announce your pregnancy 

10 Unique ways to announce your pregnancy 

How did you announce yours?

Did you find out together or surprise your other half?  A new craze seems to be announcing a pregnancy in the most creative way possible and then sharing with friends.  Here are ten of the best examples I’ve found:

1. Order a Chinese (or make chinese food), then give him or your intended a personalised fortune cookie

You can either tease out the existing fortune with tweezers and replace it with your own message, or buy some to make yourself.


2. If you’ve struggled to conceive and used IVF, incorporate your needles and medication for a triumphant announcement.


3. Involve siblings if you have them – usually a fun outfit or get them to hold an announcement! Bonus points if they look extra happy or extra miserable.

4. If you’re announcing around a special event like Christmas or Easter, wrap up a framed sonogram or pregnancy test and leave that present until last. Get the camera ready!

5. Arrange yourselves for a family or couples photo shoot and put the camera on self timer and set to take a sequence of photos. After the first one, tell him you’re pregnant and the camera will record his reaction! Better still get a friend to take the pictures for you.

6. Try using  some photo props and have a play around with coloured backgrounds, baby outfits and little shoes to create a fun picture.

7. Give the Grandparents-to-be a customised wine bottle to surprise them!

8. The coffee cup surprise reveal, make them a brew and when they finish there’s a little message inside for them.

9. Use a creative onesie or baby vest to create your own flatlay photo with your sonogram picture or a calendar with the due date circled.

10. This Etsy shop sells pre made social media templates that you can customise with your special date!

    Such creative ideas. I was just way too excited and probably just shouted it in everyone’s faces as soon as I saw them. Maybe next time I can hold it in long enough to be more creative. #TheList

      It’s my last so I can’t do it either!

      Hope it’s given you some ideas!

  6. August 8, 2015 / 3:09 pm

    What fun ideas! Not sure about the Barbie doll one but the ones with kids in are seriously cute!

  7. August 25, 2015 / 10:12 am

    I love these ideas! I’ve seen one or two people announce their pregnancies creatively, i.e. a pic on Facebook of a bun in an oven, and I’d love to be able to do something imaginative, but I’m yet to get pregnant!

      Hope it’s given you some ideas!

    Love these! We put a big brother tshirt on my son when we announced our second pregnancy andnt took a while for the penny to drop haha

    I love these ideas. When we announced the arrival of my youngest to my in laws we put a balloon in a box with the scan photo attached. Unfortunately they didn’t quite get the hint and thought we had put a photo of our 18 month old on instead.
