Best Facebook pregnancy status update? - Page 12
I have really been wondering about how I was going to come out to those who are less close to me this pregnancy, and just came up with my “Facebook official” status today. I plan to get DH to take some pics of me and our daughter this weekend, because I was 17 weeks pregnant Thursday and she will be 17 months old tomorrow. It just clicked in my head today how kind of cool that was. So I’ll take a good pic where maybe my bump will be at least a little obvious, and add text – 17 weeks for my belly, and 17 months for our daughter. Will also be fun for baby’s scrapbook and memories, too.
I bobbled the announcement this time. I posted the cliche picture of my husband and daughter and she was wearing a "Big Sister" T-shirt that we got her. however, then I posted 2 other pics on the same day so they all got kind of lumped into one "[my name] uploaded 3 pictures" announcement on everybody else's page, and unless they clicked through they wouldn't see the detail of her shirt. So a lot of people missed it and figured it out based on later stuff I posted.
My husband and I made our pregnancy announcement to our family at 8 weeks. We tried to be creative with the announcement so we did it two different ways:
1. We bought a few albums (for each family member) and on the first page we added the ultrasound photo along with the announcement "Baby Salazar arriving October 2014"
2. We printed the ultra sound photo and the announcement (double-sided) and rolled it up into a scroll and stuffed it into a balloon for family members to pop it and see the surprise inside.
Lastly, we recorded everyone's reaction and made a compilation video to share with friends and family on Facebook. It was a lot of work, but SOOOO worth it. Here is the link below for our final result!
