Hi mamas! I have pretty much told most people that I'm pregnant for the most part. However, I really want a fun way of making a facebook announcement! I know it may sound silly...but I am super excited to do something fun like that since we didn't really get to do something "fun" when announcing it to people.

Any ideas!? What are you doing?

I just changed my photo to a t-shirt that says "Baby on Board" and didn't mention it in my status. It was kind of annoying though because few people commented on it. I thought it would be highly noticeable. I don't FB that much though.

I did not come across this until it was too late for an announcement. Was going to do it for birth announcement but that ended up being DH sending a cell photo of her to facebook lol

I just said something along the lines of, "Had two separate places get my order wrong in the past two days. You don't mess with a pregnant woman's food." And I waited to see if anyone caught on.

DH wanted to post, "Guess who I knocked up?" but decided it might offend some people, so he just said, "I can't think of anything clever to say. We're pregnant!"

I feel like I want to wait until I know the gender! A lot more people know than I wanted to know at only 8 weeks. This is going to be a LONG pregnancy now that all my relatives.

I already had one post congrats mama on my wall. I don't think anyone saw it before I deleted it.

Well, we call my 15 month old son "Meatball", and I refer to him as that often on FB. I'm going to put up there "has got another meatball in the sauce". If people don't get it, I'll clear it up for them lol.

I like the idea of a picture of an I'm Going to Be a Big Sister shirt for our youngest in my profile pict. But I was also thinking of something along the lines of, "Grand Finale debuting May 2011." See who figures it out. Or maybe I should put up both so I don't have to clarify for anyone.

I think I'll post the ultrasound picture with a text saying that it's what DD is getting for her birthday. My EDD is her birthday.

DDC I announced that I was pg on facebook with a status update, but we did a gender reveal by videotaping the kids opening a present that told them it was a girl and posting it to facebook. It was very, very cute.

This is number three for us, so I put as my status that I and my husband would be "outnumbered by the small people in the spring."

Christian wife, busy happy mama to 4yo DS, 3yo DD, 15mo DS, and #4, expected next spring!

Baby gaga has a thing where you can post where you're at on facebook. Go to the number of weeks you are and click "like" at the bottom and it'll show up on your wall. I think I'm going to do that.

Either that or I'm just going to write "baby is now the size of a prune" or something like that.
