Ok o even though I am what 15 weeks we haven't told anyone really yet.

 I am starting to show so telling people if they ask. BUT we need to tell our family(mine 6 hours away, his 2 days drive). 

 

Ideas, and yes this is our 9th his 11th(2step-sons) so creative is hard and might have been down L?

I just blurted it out but that was the 1st one.

The big sister shirt with #2. 

I have sent save the date type things for the edd. #3

 

I have sent flowers and a note at mothers day(when we found out). #4

I sent all three grandmothers new birth month charms(they all have various grandkid necklaces). #5

I sent the u/s photo(had bleeding issue and it was right after a m/c). #8

Told them when they called to wish us happy annivseary that Tim's gift was going to be 9 months late when they asked what he gave me(MIL didn't get it). #7

 #6 inlaws found out when he was 3 months old cause I posted halloween photos(they never called us for the entire preg or we would have told them) my family when they called that easter the oldest 2 got on together and told them(. We had just moved to Korea(Had Vonage so US number) and they both told my family that they weren't getting a puppy in Korea but a new baby-hubby promised a puppy cause we couldn't take ours so my sister took our dog.

 

Think that is pretty much al the ways.

Maybe do an early holiday card from each of you "and a baby coming EDD"?  I know it's similar to #4, but seasonally appropriate!  And I bet they'd be curious as to why they were getting a holiday card in June!

 

How about a belly picture with all the kids and your and DHs hands on the belly?  I thought about doing that for this one, but went with a photo of my kids lined up, then my belly, with "2004 Model" "2006 Model" "2009 Model" "2012 Model coming Nov/Dec!" on our shirts (just put the letters in in a photo editing program, didn't actually get shirts.)  This was for my FB announcement.

 

Maybe send them 9 (or 11) of something?

I can't do photos with all the kids, half them are visiting family for the summer.
