While there are probably a dozen or so people who know about my pregnancy, we still haven't 'announced' it to extended family, most friends, and work. People at work are starting to ask me if I am, and I'm bad at lying.
I'm a teacher and need to wait until after Thursday to tell my coworkers, because of Back to School Night. I don't want to deal with the parents hounding me for an hour about my leave. My staff is all women (40-50), and I want to think of a fun way to announce, but am totally drawing a blank! There are typically at least 3 pregnancies a year, and no one has announced yet. Anyone have any thoughts?
It looks like we'll be having an elective scan this weekend (MIL offered to pay for it!) and finding out the gender, so if I wait until Monday, I'll most likely know!
In the past, people have just put a note on the board, or written a cute poem, or brought in pink/blue cupcakes, or just blurted it out at a staff meeting. I'm not very creative, so any thoughts are appreciated! Thanks!
