my newest idea:

"you know you're living in the 21st century when you spend months trying to figure out how to announce your pregnancy on Facebook"

some others:
"4/29/10: the date that will change our lives"

"...is 12 weeks into this"

"...got pregnant right after we got our dog" (that doesn't sound right now that I type it)

I also wanted to do something about "....has re-written the teachings from 6th grade sex ed" (we used frozen sperm)

A friend of mine put a little muffin/bun in her oven and took a picture of it. She made that her profile picture - so cute.

Another friend wrote, "(husband's name) - is it OK if we tell everyone we're pregnant now?"

I love this thread! So many cute & funny ways to announce the news!

I just outed myself on FB yesterday - I've always loved Walt Whitman, and I'm having twins, so I used a quote from Song of Myself:

"I am large, I contain multitudes."

Plus, I posted an U/S pic of the two babies together. It's lots of fun to get everybody's comments & congrats!

Some of these are hilarious!! I'm not even 10 weeks yet and I want to put something witty in my fb status. Must. hold. off.....

So glad I found this...thinking of outing myself sooner than later (12 weeks now) I like the ones that make people think...see who's paying attention, lol.

So I posted "... has bid adieu to her toes and will see them again in mid-February" (stretching the truth a tad but if I stand the right way my belly does obscure my toes).

One of the first friends who wrote back castigated me for putting my sandals away when it was only labour day. She got it eventually... some other friends gently said "oooh can't wait to see belly pictures" LOL.

I thought of that too.

I joined facebook long after my third and last was born, so didn't get to announce here. But I wouldn't til after 12 weeks.

If it were your third, and you like country music, you could quote Garth Brooks with "two of a kind, workin' on a full house"

Sure, I find this thread the day after I agonized over how to announce it on FB!!

I posted "is unsure of the proper etiquette for announcing a pregnancy on Facebook, but at 14 weeks thinks it is probably about time."
post #72 of 235
I'm LOVING this thread, since if I am PG that's how I will be announcing it to the world!

Here's some of my ideas...
Hey diddle diddle, Trey’s gonna be in the middle… (Trey's my youngest...)

Today’s lucky numbers are: 0, 5, 2, 0, 0 and 9

I also love:
you know you're living in the 21st century when you spend months trying to figure out how to announce your pregnancy on Facebook
and
is so crafty she is making another person (perfect for me because I'm very crafty!)

What did you write?

I thought there was a thread on this a while back, but I can't find it.

Thanks!!!

Haven't done it, but I've had two ideas planned...
There is a Garfield comic in one of my older books, where Garfield shows two clothes hangers and throws them into an empty closet. Then he opens the closet and hangers are pouring out. Yeah... we have a lot of kids

My current plan is thanks to a Huggies ad. It's got a dad with a diaper bag jumping a fence hurdle to chase after a baby crawling off in a diaper. The caption reads: "Have we made babies too fast?" If I am pg again, the youngest two will be around 16 months apart.


SIL announced her current pg with this picture:

Ya'll are a funny bunch of ladies. This thread is cracking me up.

I posted

*****is thinking up baby names
post #77 of 235
When we found out we were having another boy, I posted:

".....is growing a penis. Her second one, in fact. (Translation: [DS] will be the big brother to a little brother!)"

My DH and I always laugh about how I'm growing a penis, I felt like I needed to inflict that image on the world.

Mine kinda worked out well w/ my bday falling right around my 15 week mark, so today I posted "is grateful for the birthday wishes... especially the one that is coming true in March, 2010"

A friend of mine wrote:

"[name] had a fabulous time at Six Flags, except for the fact that she suffers from one of the following conditions:" Then she inserted a picture she'd taken of the sign that has the little stick figures and says "Don't ride if you have heart conditions, back pain or are pregnant". Really cute.

How crazy is it that I'm NOT pg and taking notes off this thread for next time

I'm totally stealing the 'Egyptian Flu' one!!

Hubby and I are headed to Egypt in about 6 more weeks and are holding off on announcing until we return. That should be hillarious!!

Hopefully everyone will just think that I'm gaining weight for the next few weeks (just confirmed we are 12 weeks along yesterday!!!)....
