8 Fun Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy ...

Here are 8 fun ways to announce your pregnancy. I hope they inspire you to come up with even more ways to surprise your friends and family and let them know about your bundle on its way!

8. Take Cupcakes to Work

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Decorate them with blue and/or pink frosting with a big โ€˜positiveโ€™ sign on top of each cupcake. The plus sign lets people know you are positively pregnant and everyone gets to enjoy a treat on your behalf. You could also bake a cake and decorate it with a baby theme on top, such as a stork carrying a bundle, a picture of a baby wrapped in a blanket, or stick a pacifier and a baby rattle on top of the cake.

7. Put an Infant Car Seat in the Back of Your Vehicle

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Wonโ€™t you partner be surprised when he opens the back door of the car and finds a car seat strapped in place. You could even put a card in the seat that says something to the tune of โ€˜Congrats, Daddy-to-beโ€™.

6. Position Baby Items around the House

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Set a bottle of baby shampoo in the shower, put a baby toothbrush in the holder alongside the adult toothbrushes, place a sippy cup in the cabinet with the coffee mugs, and add a set of baby towels and wash clothes to the linen closet. If this doesnโ€™t grab his attention, I donโ€™t know what will!

5. Movie Night

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Rent a couple of movies with a baby-theme to watch when you pop the news to your friends. There are plenty of movies that revolve around child birth that are humorous, endearing, or both. You can wait to see if your friends will get the hint from the movie selection or if you need to break the news to them after watching a movie or two.

4. Figure in a College Fund into the Budget

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you and your partner sit down and figure the budget together, then why not toss in a section labeled โ€˜College Fundโ€™ and see if he notices. You could also put a piggy bank on his desk or dresser and label it with the words โ€˜Diaper Fundโ€™ if you think this might catch his eye sooner.

3. Invite Friends and Family over for a Surprise Dinner

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Donโ€™t make it any old dinner, create a baby-themed dinner; baby carrots, baby ears of corn, baby back ribs, etc. Or you might try placing a jar of baby food in the middle of each personโ€™s plate under a fancy cover of some sort. When they each pull off the linen napkin or silver dish, the baby food will be noticed right away. Once everyone has their jar of baby food revealed, Iโ€™m sure theyโ€™ll get the hint!

2. Notify the Family with a Fun Email

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You could put the subject heading as โ€˜Birthdaysโ€™ and let everyone know you are making sure you have a correct list of birthdays in your records. You can then offer a list of your familyโ€™s birthdates for them and list the last birthday as โ€˜Babyโ€™ with your due date out to the side.

1. Make a Shopping List

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Send your man on a grocery run and give him a nice lengthy list. Most guys donโ€™t check the list before they head out the door, so be sure to hide words like โ€˜diapersโ€™ and โ€˜baby shampooโ€™ in the middle of the list. You can always put pickles and ice cream on the list to and make sure they are side-by-side.

Can you think of anything else to add to this list of 8 fun ways to announce your pregnancy?
