Have You Announced Your Pregnancy Yet?

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?

We live over 2,000 miles from our families and are going home for Christmas. We'll tell our families then. We made a Christmas themed shirt for DD that says "I'm going to be a BIG SISTER" and we'll have her wear it and see everyone's reaction. I CANNOT WAIT. I'll be 14 weeks when everyone finally finds out. 

I've attached a picture of the shirt :)

I have told only a select few people, we are waiting for our 7 week ultrasound to make sure there is a heartbeat before we do. I found a lot of cute announcements on pinterest. I love the one were the dad is holding a sign that says were pregnant and the mom is "pretend" puking in the toilet, however we plan on making small signs for our 4yo dd and taking pictures of her holding each one, and making it into a photo booth style picture with them lined up vertically. the signs will say something like "Guess What" .... "I know a secret" ..... "Im gonna be a BIG SISTER" ..... "Due Date" And I am hoping to catch her reaction to the news while taking the pics of the sign.

We haven't announced it and don't plan to until the absolute last second (aka when I have a visible bump). My family and work will not be pleased about another addition so soon (since I have a 3, 2 and 1 year old).  I may spill the beans during my family's annual Thanksgiving trip to Aruba (since I will be in a bathing suit).  The first u/s is 11/6 so we'll see.

we haven't announced yet and weren't planning to tell anyone until around Christmas, but my mom figured it out! lol. she is the only one who knows so far and we have sworn her to secrecy. We may bump up the announcement to Thanksgiving since I will be out of the first trimester by then. We'll see. We are going to put DD in a "big sister" shirt and just see how long it takes someone to notice ;-)
