Best Facebook pregnancy status update? - Page 8

post #141 of 235

I know this thread is old, but since it has been revived...for my 2nd dd I posted:

 

"To the tune of "Chapel of Love": Going to the midwife and we're gonna have a ba-a-aby, going to the midwife and we're gonna have a ba-a-aby. Ooh, I really love him and we're gonna have a ba-a-aby. Going to the midwife in MARCH!"

 

I announced my current pregnancy on Thanksgiving day, after a particularly rough baking spell in our new house. Our oven was off by 20+ degrees, but I didn't know it yet - just enough to cause some serious baking drama, lol. I don't remember the exact words, but it was something like:

I forgot to rinse my turkey after I brined it, I ruined my pumpkin pies, and I ruined 2 batches of cookies, but I did not ruin the bun in my oven.

This one gets bounced around sometimes: (Name) is working on a new addition ... we're expanding by two feet! (sometimes accompanied by pics of everybody's feet smile.gif )

Or, if you're political, maybe something about "Occupy Uterus" smile.gif

I think I may go the stock-photo of a bun in the oven, though!

This is what I wrote, letting everyone on FB know that I am now prego.

 

SO, last night I was asleep, dreaming of unicorns, lolly pops and rainbows. Just then I was awoken by a loud crash on top of my trailer....... =O ......I (being half asleep) go outside to investigate and am tackled by little pink fuzzy aliens who some how are absorbed into my skin. While in there they injected me with pink and blue swirled mushroom venom. I then passed out from the strong nature of these goings on. When I woke up this morning, it turns out..the venom that they injected me with formed into a little baby. ♥

I think I'm going to ask for ideas for newborn Halloween costume ideas ( due mid Oct) and see who gets it, I think it'll be pretty obvious :)

post #146 of 235

such great ideas, thanks everyone for sharing!

This time around i think I'll announce with "We are headed back down the rabbit hole, new bunny emerging mid to late September." Not sure how many people will get it but this baby is hopefully our rainbow baby.

Finally a good use for Facebook's Timeline feature... I found my post very easily. I wrote "[last name] 2.0 is currently under development and due for release on or around June 21, 2011. Insiders expect the first release in this product line to be a very cute one. The parents-to-be are already preparing psychologically for the experience of parenthood, as every two hours or so Mama needs to be fed RIGHT NOW." (We called the baby 2.0 for short before she was born.)

My partner has an 11 year old, and I have a 7 year old, so I just posted "Yours, Mine, and Ours- coming to our household November 2012!"

Haven't announced on fb yet, but we told our family on valentine's day by sending them this picture of Dh, ds and me.  We put text around it that said, Happy Valentine's Day from all the "last name"s.  It was fun to hear who got it right away and who was too distracted by the candy we sent with it, hehe.

Mine was: has BIG news!! Are you ready? I'm pregnant!!!! Andrew and I are having a little one, due to arrive mid-December!

 

I had to go back and look, I didn't remember what I wrote. A few weeks later we got an ultrasound and that one says "Heeerrreee's Blobby!!" DD wanted to see the picture and I told her it didn't look like a baby yet, it's that blob in the middle there and she said "Awwww!!! Hi Blobby!" and the name stuck.

My facebook status update said, "Loves (my best friend who I tagged) and wants to go with her to Pride Night on September 9th.... "Are you too pregnant to go to an amusement park?" Is the text I got this morning. Well, let's ask the midwife. ;)"

So that is how we informed our friends and family. I had told only a few close friends at that point and that text just made me have to tell people, it was too good to pass up. I did go to the amusement park and the only thing I rode was the carousel. But my wonderful best friend won my DSS three of the minions from Despicable Me, so it was a great time.

I am curious what kind of cute photos people have used besides POAS and sonograms (which DH and I would rather not post for the world to see when we get pregnant).  Love some of the ideas on here though for when the time comes.

post #155 of 235

Love this thread. I'm not pregnant yet but when I am and ready to announce it, I think I'll use, "In ___ weeks, I'm getting a promotion and a title I've wanted for a long time: mommy"

If I have a next time, I think I'll be super cryptic and just say, "I see a rainbow!"  People who know the reference to a pregnancy after a loss might get it right away.  Then after another few hours/days/weeks (however long until a few people get it, lol) I'll post a picture of an actual rainbow and then explain the meaning of a rainbow pregnancy and give a clearer announcement. 

post #157 of 235

For my 2nd pregnancy I wrote:

 

"POAS a while ago and got a BFP. EDD late august. heard a wonderful 130 BPM yesterday for the first time... ♥"
 
..and then I told my MDC-friends not to blab :)
people figured it out rather quickly - I think some just loved the challenge of a little riddle and did some googling and the rest got it from the comments below.

One of my friends from high school just posted a picture of her four children, lined up by age on the couch, all holding signs. The signs read "I'm first!," "I'm second!," "I'm third!" and "I'm LAST fourth!" She titled the picture "Baby #5 joining our family September 1st"

(In case that isn't clear, her youngest sons sign said, I'm LAST! but LAST was crossed out and fourth was written below it. Her son also had this priceless surprised expression.)

It was SO cute, I think I might have to steal that idea, with our surprise fourth on the way, after everyone was told we were done at three.

I like your idea, library girl!

post #160 of 235

I like a lot of these. I've been thinking about this. Our baby is due Halloween, so I was going to post Jessica has BIG plans for Halloween! And go from there. But I really like a lot of these others too. Maybe I will serial update with a few and see who figures it out.
