Which of these cute and funny pregnancy announcement ideas will you try out?
Break the News: You’re Expecting!
When it comes time to break the news about your newest family member, there are tons of adorable and creative ideas to pick from. You want your announcements to represent your family, sense of humor, personality, and a little bit of personal style.
These are some of our top picks for stand-out pregnancy announcements the whole family is sure to love:
Announce Your Big News with Baby Clothes
Baby clothes are a fun and useful way to announce the big news. After all, they’re immediately recognizable, and you’ll be able to use them for more than a photo when baby arrives.
Let’s discuss our fav ways to show off those little onesies.
One simple but cute and effective way to present the clothes is to wrap a onesie up as a gift. When it comes to sharing the news with your partner for the very first time, present them with the wrapped clothes and let them unwrap the surprise. Consider recording the moment, so you can look back on the day your family began to grow.
Once your partner knows about the new baby, you can wrap the clothes and share the gift with your parents. It’s a cute way to let grandma and grandpa know about the exciting news to come.
Stroller blankets are another fantastic option when it comes to sharing the big secret. Find matching blankets in colors or patterns you love and present them to your family as a big reveal.
Have the Older Sibling Make the Announcement
If you’re presenting news about a second baby, it can be fun to include the older sibling in the announcement. They can wear t-shirts that mention how they’re the older child or how they can’t wait for their new sibling to arrive. Maybe even add in the family pets for something with a touch of whimsy.
For the next sibling pregnancy announcement, consider dressing up your little one in a cute suit and sharing how they’ve received a “promotion.” There are many adorable ways to engage your child or children in the announcement so that they feel included and get as excited about the coming baby as you are.
Make a Funny Announcement Video
What’s better than a funny video? It can be an engaging way to share the news about your new baby. With so many editing programs to check out right from the comfort of home, you can create a video that’s truly unique, like a superhero and sidekick rescuing a baby or bandits on a runaway train in the wild west.
You can make this silly video all on your own, and you’ll be able to look back on the event for many years to come.
Share the News on Social Media With a Funny Photo
And when it comes to humor, a picture really does say a thousand words. Especially when one of those words is “pickle,” are we right? There are so many ways to play around with the classic pregnancy stories, like a craving for pickles and ice cream, and you can fit the announcement to your family’s personality and styles.
Do you love baking? Show a bun in the oven! Are you movie buffs? Make an announcement in the style of a movie poster from your favorite era, complete with a baby doll in the cutest doll clothes. There’s no shortage of creative ideas or designs to try, and you can frame the photo for your home or the nursery.
Put a Positive Pregnancy Test by the Bed
When it comes to telling your partner the big news, sometimes a private moment is the best. Rather than creating a buildup, simply leave the positive pregnancy test by the bedside where you know they will find it.
It’s an intimate and loving way to share the occasion with the person you love before the next step in your wild journey together.
What Should You Wear When You’re Expecting?
Expectant moms have a lot on their minds. They’re figuring out home and work needs, setting up the nursery, visiting doctors, and planning showers. And with all that, they’re also expected to take care of their own physical and emotional needs.
The right clothes can ensure you’re comfortable throughout your pregnancy and provide as much mobility as possible as the pregnancy progresses.
Here are some of our top picks for maternity clothes and characteristics:
Of course, it is all about comfort. You want to make sure your clothes are loose so that you can continue to wear them through several months of your pregnancy. You don’t want your clothes to be constricting or too tight.
Additionally, pick out pieces made with breathable material. Pregnant women often experience fluctuations in body temperature, and you want to know your clothes will keep you cool on even the hottest days. Some of our beloved comfy clothes are leggings, joggers, loungewear, and more.
You also want to make sure that you can move easily, which is why flexible apparel is a great addition to any maternity wardrobe. It allows for stretching and activities like yoga or walking while still remaining in place and keeping the new mom comfortable.
Find flexible apparel in your favorite colors and styles to represent your personality all pregnancy long. And after you give birth, slip into your favorite loungewear for the picture-perfect “leaving the hospital” outfit.
