Have we talked about this yet?

I still haven't announced to the world aka Facebook. Last time I posted a picture of a bun in the oven. I want to do a creative announcement again. A pee stick or ultrasound picture won't cut it

Ideas? If you have already made a cute announcement please share!

In January time I made up a little poem and posted it as my status. It was something like "It's not a surprise to us, but it may be to you. We're expecting another bundle, and we bet it is blue!" That way I was saying that yes it was planned and yes we expected it to be another boy to right away nix all the comments that I was sure to come otherwise. But since we then had to tell everyone about the m/c a few weeks later we're holding off this time for a bit.

I'm not sure until when we will tell this time. I've thought about waiting until 16 weeks when we'll find out the gender then announce it by posting a pic of my 3 wearing "big bro" shirts and holding balloons of blue or pink. Not sure if I can wait 10 more weeks though!

I been trying to think of a cute way also. We are holding off telling anyone (DH, a coworker, and myself are it), but I am looking pregnant (just my luck). Maybe people will just think I've gained weight?

my better half allready put up the status "minion #2 arriving in theaters February" but only a few of our really close friends even got it (ironically none of my family members did lol)

Im going to hold of a picture announcement or anything like that untill after I see the doctor im contemplating simply getting Connor a big brother shirt and takeing a family picture.

my brother did a really cute pic of mens womens and kids shoes and titled it we are proud to announce our home will be growing by 2 whole feet.

We plan on changing our cover photos at the same time to a cute picture. Mommy converse, daddy converse and little baby converse.

I am going to do the bun in the over pic. I am just going to upload the pic itself and not say a word. Many of my close FB friends (in ddg's or what not) already know, but many do not.

I like the idea of the gender reveal with the balloons and big sister/brother shirts! that is awesome!

I don't know what we're going to do yet. I've been saving some cute ideas on Pinterest


Ones like these crack me up!

I'm not big on facebook stuff, but for everybody else I'm going to mail them a card of my DD wearing a t-shirt that says: "Only child, expires Feb 2014". We plan on doing the genetic blood testing, which means we'll probably even know the sex of the baby before we even announce we're pregnant, so on the inside of the card we'll have the 12 week ultrasound picture, and another picture of my DD holding pink or blue balloons with a "Big Sis" t-shirt. I can't wait to get started on it in a few weeks.

Can't wait to meet our new baby GIRL!

We live in a tiny town (population less than 200), so I want to take our picture next to the population sign and hold up a plus one.

Thanks, Sam! Somewhere, there's a picture my sister in law took when DH & I moved last summer and it has a plus 2 by the sign... she was so excited about doing that! It's what gave us the idea! Plus, I think it'll be cute to post in our little post office to let the town know.

I'm not creative, I just posted a pic of the clearblue digital test. Saw lots of funny ideas on Pinterest though.
