As I indicated in my title, I am pg with my third. I am looking for creative ways to tell the family (grandmas and such). With my first, we were living in Boston and flew in for a surprise visit over memorial weekend to make the announcement. For my second, we were living in Spokane (with all the family) so we make dd a t-shirt announcing her "big sister" status. Now, for #3 I have a couple ideas but want more. We will be waiting a couple weeks before announcing it. I tend to show quickly though, but if I can keep it hidden, I will use my mom's birthday and wrap a present signed by all three kids.

I will post my intro in the next message so this doesn't get too long.


Mom to three very active girls Anna (14), Kayla (11), Maya (8).

For DH's parents, we played hangman, with the phrase being "We are pregnant." That was cool, because FIL guessed it and was proud he guessed, but MIL actually "got it."

For my mom, we gave her a frame that said "I love grandma" with a piece of paper instead of a photo that said "photo coming 12/28/05." She thought that was cool

Good luck with announcing, and have fun!
