Getting pregnant for the first time is overwhelming for a few women and an unexpected surprise for a few. You might not even know where to begin or the rush of emotions might cloud your days. So many changes happen in a body that’s beginning to grow a little human.
A positive pregnancy test is the first sign of an exciting journey ahead for a couple. A few follow the 12 weeks rule and only breakout the news after the first trimester when the chances of a miscarriage are comparatively lower. Some people are excited and some might even need care with all the morning sickness and nausea, so they disclose their status earlier on.
Either way, there will be a time when you will be ready to share your news with family and friends and here we are going to tell you the most exciting ways to share your good news with your close ones.
You can make your announcement whenever you feel ready; you don’t have to spill the beans before you’re comfortable even if other people are pressuring you. It’s your pregnancy so set your own rules.
There might be a million ways to announce your pregnancy; being active on social media means you just post a picture and BOOM! Your account will blow up with congratulatory comments and messages.
There are so many fun ways to make that post, maybe you could hire a photographer and do a little shoot or get a graphic designer on board and make a little image that’s personal to your style.
Here, we have gathered a few ideas to announce your pregnancy and we are sure you’ll find some inspiration that suits your personal style.
1. Show off that bump!
Cradle that bump and get a few pictures clicked, a few close ups of just the bump and a few full length photos of you and your partner cradling the bump together. These can even go in your pregnancy journal and be used in your baby’s keepsakes box.
2. Use a letter-board
Write a quote that resonates with you, use a few props and click a nice flat-lay picture. You could even write a funny quote if that’s your style. You could hold it against yourself and click a few pictures.
3. Involve siblings
Ask the siblings to be a part of the announcement. Get a cute tee or a cap that says, ‘promoted to big sis/bro’ you could even ask the sibling to make a little video that says excited to be the elder sibling.
4. Get your pets involved too
Pets and kids are known to have a very special bond. You could make your pet a part of the picture or the post and get them clicked along with you. This make very special announcement idea for pet parents.
5. Use your ultrasound picture
You should take a picture of your ultrasound and use it to make a post. You could even save all the ultrasounds to see the progress that your little babe is making and how from the size of a grape seed they grow into this beautiful little human with hands and legs!
6. Prop your pregnancy test
Use your pregnancy test as a prop and click a few pictures with it. I know a few moms who have framed their pregnancy tests along with their first ultrasound picture. It makes for a beautiful keepsake.

If any festival or season is close to your date of announcement you can incorporate that for your post.
