Any fun announcements?

I finally made a social media announcement because my mom posted on my wall about picking a stocking for her to make for the new baby and I got a lot of people saying, "new baby?" And such... so, I decided I would announce! I sewed up and vinyled an outfit today and posted it! A friend who loves Harry Potter as much as I do also made an announcement I could post, so I did both

I did make sure to include words that said "actually, probably November" but it felt a bit heavy on the pic, so I just put October.

Anybody else do or have anything fun planned?

Too cute!

I have no idea what to do for a facebook announcement. I have a lot of friends/family that have struggled with infertility and I don't want to hurt them with an announcement. But then again... there are lotsa people who I don't see everyday or even very often and a facebook announcement is a wuick, easy way to let people know.

I may just make a post on mother's day about it. Mother's day is a hard day anyway for my family members who have suffered a loss and I know of at least one who just avoids facebook that day unless she thinks she can handle it.

Not yet. Waiting for the results of genetic testing before announcing. I took some photos last weekend as future announcement photos, it they Didn't quite come out as I thought they autos, so not sure whether to think of something else

I love your announcement pictures!

Honestly, I'm tempted to just post Christmas pictures with a random baby in them, lol.

I haven't decided what to do yet. Part of me really wants to announce after our next ultrasound next week (which is also the day before my birthday) when we'll be able to confirm both babies are sticky. Another part knows once I do announce it's going to get back to my parents and that's going to start up their harassment again. I guess I'll decide sometime this week.

I'm not always so keen on FB announcements but being far away from all our friends I wanted a fun way to let people know as it won't spread by people seeing the obvious belly I'm growing

I love this idea! Such a creative announcement.

Since we are Star Wars fans, and May 4 is coming up, I'm thinking of saying "May the fourth (baby) be with us." But not sure. I'd love something cute, but I'm not creative that way. I've been searching Pinterest, however, I don't see anything that really catches my eye there.

Thanks! We had lots of rainy days in a row so I had the kids painting rocks with lady bugs and things and that made me think of this. It was hilarious how long it took for the first person to respond though. Everyone was afraid they were misunderstanding something. I thought it was pretty obvious

I'm not usually into fancy stuff like that myself, but there happens to be a robin's nest with four eggs in it in our yard, so I took a pic and posted it, since we are now going to be a family of four

Very cool. I love how creative you were.

We love Star Wars also, but I went with the corny one I mentioned earlier, and we received lots of happy responses. I was worried I'd get the "oh, not another one" or your kind of old type responses. I did get a ton of "maybe this is your boy!" Since we have three girls.
