... has an expanding waistline (or substitute whatever pregnancy symptom/sign you want here, like ... has morning sickness, etc.)

Love these!  I will have to borrow one when we are ready to announce in another couple of months.  :)

Well, I originally planned to use the promotion one but if we get pregnant this cycle, we'll be announcing at Thanksgiving time. I'll use:

 

R is baking more than turkey and pies this Thanksgiving!

 

I don't think it'll take close friends very long to figure it out. It's not a secret that we want a baby pretty badly.

Forgot to mention that Facebook Timeline just came out with a new option last week so that you can announce you are expecting, just like you would with an engagement, etc.  It's under life events.

As soon as my parents get there announcments in the mail. We decided to send a letter from baby. :) Then we'll announce on FB with the below picture. We've changed our minds so much on how to announce figured I'd post an update. Lol.

Thanks! The baby carriage is the answer, and after everyone freaks and goes to guessing I'll post a pic of a baby carriage. :)

I'm due in May, and so I was thinking some sort of play on the phrase, "April Showers bring May Flowers" but I don't quite know what, yet. Maybe something about August relations bring May babies? Or something like that?

We were expecting DD not long after Knocked Up the movie came out. We photoshopped our heads on the poster and posted the picture and our due date. I want to do a Knocked Up 2 poster for our new little one.

We're the first of our siblings to get pregnant, so I'm thinking of doing something like:

1 new baby due in May
2 new parents
3 new aunts and uncle
4 new grandparents

though I'd love it to be a bit more clever, that's all I can think of right now!

All of you ladies are very creative!!

All of my family knows, waiting until 14 week to announce on fb.
Thinking of:

(Hubby's name) and I have defied the logic of all our math teachers.
1+1 actually = 3!!

It's our third so hopefully not cryptic??

If we have another baby after this one, and I announce at my usual eight-ish weeks, I might do an announcement like this.

On 56 of 280.

I don't think anyone would get it, though. lol

I always thought it would be fun to post a pregnancy announcement on April Fool's day, just to keep people guessing.

I posted this photo with the caption "Jackson giving Tobias advice on how to be a big brother."

Obviously, I announced around Christmastime for our end-of-may baby

I had a friend do that, and then continue to post vague statuses for another month without acknowledging that she was in fact pregnant.

 

It was super annoying.

We don't even have a BFP yet, but at whatever point we decide to announce it to FB I've decided to say "@nephew's name, are you ready for a cousin?"

I know it's hard to watch other people having fun being pregnant when you're struggling with infertility yourself but that was kind of unnecessarily harsh. I don't think anybody is trying to be smug. I think they're just trying to have fun with the announcement. Facebook is always a little attention whorish by definition, but I'd rather somebody use it to announce a major life event than for a constant stream of minutiae. I'm not a fan of some of the suggestions in this thread either, but if somebody else wants to post that, it's no skin off my nose. 

 

Enjoy the 135 likes and comments when you get them. :)

I was thinking of saying something like "I'm thankful for small miracles. Ours is currently the size of a lime and due in January!"

 

We tried for two years, gave up, and got pregnant out of the blue a year later so it feels like a miracle to me. I'm only about 5 weeks though and planning to wait til 13 to make the official announcement, but my poker face totally sucks so I'm just hoping I can really keep it a secret that long from the local friends. I also think your comment was a bit harsh, wow345. I've waited a long time for this and plan to milk it for all its cheesy goodness ;)

I have a graphic that says "I like the tern 'we're expecting' when talking about pregnancy, because it makes it sound like there's more than one outcome. Yeah, we're expecting a baby. But it could be a velociraptor."- with a picture of a velociraptor on the bottom. I will be posting this to fb in the next week or so, once we're sure that all family members and close friends have been told in person. My friends are mostly nerds, and they will likely find it hilarious. 😜
