Have you made the big announcement? If so, how did you do it? If not, when and how do you plan to share the news?

Need a few creative ideas?

Yes, we shared a lot earlier than we actually planned on sharing. This is my second pregnancy, my first we lost at 6 weeks. So we planned on waiting until closer to 12 or 13 weeks. But for some reason at around 6 or 7 weeks we decided to tell our families. Things just felt better this time and I felt in my heart everything was going to be okay. It was during the day while everyone was at work so we texted them a picture of the positive pregnancy test. I think part of the reason for texting too was even though we have been married for almost three years so it shouldn't come as a surprise us having a baby now, we were still kind of worried how some people would react, so wanted give them a moment to think about it before responding.

I think that is a super cute way to announce your pregnancy! How long did it take before you received responses to your text?

Hi there,

I just got my two lines from the test this weekend and still a little overwhelmed, although it's something we've been hoping and praying for. So we haven't announced it yet, I'm on 4+6 now, if I've counted right. So excited about telling though! This is our first baby. We are probably going to take a photo of our feet in shoes and next to my and my husband's shoes, a pair of tiny little empty shoes and sent those photos out as cards at least to family and some friends :)

We haven't decided when yet, but maybe will try to wait until around Easter, to make sure everything's okay.
