Special ways to announce pregnancy?
Me and my boyfriend might be expecting... I'm going to be going to the doctors to confirm soon enough! However, I'm trying to think up creative ways I could tell my parents and my friends! This will be an unexpected pregnancy, I was on birth control, though me and my boyfriend have talked about having children a little later on in life. Not what we thought was the perfect timing, but we are happy none the less! I'm not sure how to announce my pregnancy to my loved ones though. I want to be creative, to make sure they all know that we are happy for the unexpected little one. I am worried about how to announce it mostly to my parents. They love my boyfriend, and he's basically already a part of the family. But as the oldest girl, my dad has had a harder time letting go.
For my friends, I was thinking maybe giving each of them a dried out pea, and telling them that this is the size of my baby right now. I'm opened to more creative idea's to tell them as well, though!
For my mother, I am thinking of maybe giving her a tee that says "Noni", as she's already told me thats what she wants me and my boyfriends future kids / her grand kids to call her. I know she will be absolutely thrilled! I'm also still opened to idea's here to! <3 This is the best idea I could come up with yet.
But for my father... I have no idea. I don't want to just give him a "grandpops" tee and expect him to be excited. I know he will be excited after its settled in and he accepts that I'm pregnant, but he will probably be a bit sad at first. I'd really love some idea's here!! <3 I don't want to make him uncomfortable by being to blunt or too happy, but I don't want to make this a sad event.
What do you think? How did you all announce your pregnancies? Or how do you plan to announce your pregnancies once you are? I know I am a little ahead, seeing as I haven't confirmed it with the doctor. And even when I do, I plan to wait until the first trimester is over to announce it. But I am certainly dreaming up idea's already!
Thanks so much!

My sister annouced her current pregnancy at our family reunion by having her daughter wear a t-shirt that said Big Sister. But, if this is your first that won't work. I guess you could wear a shirt that said something about being a mom.
And think this pregnancy announcement is really cute.

Aww, thats cute! I could always wear a tee about being a new mom, that could be fun!
And oh my word, I love that pregnancy announcement! <3 I don't have any other children to add to the bunch, of course. But I know I could definitely do the "bump ahead" and the shoes and eventually I could do the bow over the bump with that, and I love the him plus me/baby = 3! Idea! <3 Thanks so much!! <3

Find someone to create special Scratchies for you and give them out to your family and friends. They could say something along the lines of "We're Pregnant!!" and have everyone scratch to reveal at the same time.
I love the T-shirt idea! So cute. Since you're waiting until the end of your first trimester to tell anyone, you could get a T-shirt made with an ultrasound image on it with "I'm pregnant!!" above it in big letters and the due date underneath.
Just a couple of cute ideas. Hope you like!!

I once read in a magazine that a woman bought herself a new hoodie, then a pair of tiny overalls to signify the new baby. I thought it was really cute.
I have a couple cousins who are pregnant, but because they don't like around here, I don't know if they did it any cute way.
The t-shirt idea would be cute too, or the tiny shoes.
Congratulations and best of luck!
