I'm getting close to being able to shout our pregnancy from the rooftops Very excited. Any brilliant ideas of how to announce it on Facebook? We'll be calling all the important people first, of course. What did you put as your status update to let people know?

i didn't use facebook much then....but on myspace, i had just gotten married so i changed my name to Mrs. Paez. Then we got pregnant a month later and changed it to Pregnant Mrs. Paez.
not sure on facebook though as they want you to use your real name. how about a pic of the pregnancy test lines? or digital "pregnant"?

We have told those closest to us but I am waiting to tell the public until I am really far along. There is an Application that allows you create a stick family. You could do that and use the pregnant woman for yourself to see how many catch on.

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!

Funny you posted this - I was starting to think about it myself (though I am only 5 weeks along ... much longer wait for me!)

I was thinking of:

...is confirming the rumors.
...is pregnant (not fat).
...is 12 weeks.

I probably will also post a pic of DD in the onesie we made her that says "big sister", so people will be able to figure it out quick

haha, I wrote "Erin is trying to find a cold medication that is safe during pregnancy!"

Of course this would only work if you're sick...lol.

Very timely thread... I'm planning on announcing on FB this weekend - have to tell ILs and my parents first.

My family: me jog.gif, dh geek.gif, ds reading.gif (11), dd1 hearts.gif (9), and dd2 energy.gif(3).

Tout va s'arranger à la fin. Si elle ne fonctionne pas; ce n'est pas la fin.

I was pretty bitter when I announced my pregnancy on Myspace, because I have been getting mostly negative reactions from people. Not sure why all the sudden having three kids is just unimaginable?

But I did something like, "Yes, I know how it happens. No, it wasn't intentional. YES we're excited to be adding to our family, again."

I announced my pg on facebook in the 25 random things note -- somewhere in the middle was "I've had 2 homebirths and am planning a 3rd in July". People actually caught on (or else figured it out from the congrats messages).

I love profile pictures of positive tests -- or siblings in big sister/brother shirts!

I said "is pregnant with anticipation for May 25, 2009!" which was subtle enough that not everyone got it, but I thought it was witty.

This is cute! Any ideas for how to announce a birth/new baby? I've been thinking about this for my Myspace. I don't want to just say "Luna's daughter is born!" or "is a new Mommy!" or "had her baby!" Boring!

I changed my profile pic to one of the baby and my status to "Becks and Rory are proud to introduce little Oliver <3.

Simple & sweet

My friend send out a email about how they were adding on two feet to their house in 2009! I thought that was cute and took me a little while to catch on! Could definately be used for FB though.
