I know I want to announce to my paternal grandparents by having them shirts made that say "I'm a great grandma/grandpa." As for my parents, I want to do something special to announce my pregnancy to them since both (they're divorced) were none too happy about the news of their first 2 grandchildren by my brother and step brother. I want them to be happy and excited when I tell them. Mom will probably get a card with one of the first US pics in it the day I get them. She will likely be the only person to know (and my stepdad) until 12 weeks.

Not sure, and it depends on how long it takes. If we conceive too quickly, I think we are gonna not say anything for a while. I know most of our family & friends are gonna be freaked out considering we are both in/getting ready to go back to school. I want it to be something awesome this time, though. When Kira was born, we just announced it on Facebook... that pretty much covered everyone
So in love with our Princess Kira Jean!!!
I haven't put as much thought into the pregnancy announcement as I have the birth announcement. I have had a miscarriage in the past, so am thinking I will wait until about 10-12 weeks to announce. I will probably just call my family on the same day so word can't spread before I get to tell them. The family that is close to me I will probably tell in person.
I haven't thought about it at all. I would really like to do a gender reveal that is hidden from us but I have no idea how we will announce the pregnancy.
My parents were pissed when I got preggo the 1st time. I lost the baby and got preggo (on purpose) 9 months later. I "told" them by scanning a pic of the ultrasound and writing "Hi Grandma and Grandpa" on it and set it on my dining room table for my mom to see because I knew she had to come over to pick up the dog and she would see it while I wasn't home. I was not in the mood to here their comments at the time.
We will probably end up doing the idea where my daughter where's a "BIG SISTER" shirt or something. For her announcement, we did the picture frame at Christmas time thing for DH's parents and for my mom.
We WANTED to put the sonogram in the frames, but our sonogram wasn't until 4 days after Christmas so we couldn't do that idea.
I think I'll get big sister shirts for the girls. When I got pregnant with them I just blutered it out. I'd already had three losses, so I was done with any cute annoucement ideas. I kept it from a lot of people for awhile.
DH suggessted getting two shirts one that says "They had two..." and one that says "...Now they'll have a third!" and sitting the girls side by side.
