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?

I told my hubby of course, but no one else knows yet.  I'm thinking it would be fun to announce it on Valentine's Day!!!  I'm thinking of a creative way to do it.  :) :)

I'm not sure when I'm going to announce. I don't really feel ready yet. Only a few select people know. But when I do announce I'm going to use a picture I made. I took a pic of my 2 older kids holding a plain white sheet of paper l, then I made my youngest a t-shirt that says "Oops they did it again. I'm going to be a big sister". With ps I added "I'm the big BIG sister" to my oldest daughter's paper, and "I'm the big BIG brother to my son's. Then I added my youngest into the pic of the older 2. None of the kids know yet, so I plan on showing them the picture to tell them also.

We don't live near family so we'll tell them on skype... not sure how I'm going to do it yet since I had just gotten off the phone with my mom a week or so ago saying how I was going to call my Dr for a tubal consult.  I won't be able to hide it much longer from the people around me since I'm already showing :O 
I'm thinking of putting my kids infront of the oven with a bun in it and trying to ge tthem to give me a shocked face.  That should be a good one for facebook!  But trying to get a 3, 2 and 6 month old to do that may be troublesome... hehehehe

We'll either announce at Easter or we'll tell people when we just can't hide it anymore. This is my second pregnancy and I hate the announcing part for some reason.

We told our kids last night. It was sooner than I wanted, but my dh was anxious. So now we HAVE to tell family very soon. But we're not going fb public for a bit.
