Finding out you are going to be a parent for the first time is an exciting event in a couple’s life. Not only does having a baby brings you closer together, but it’s also a fun time that brings you closer to your extended family and friends. Breaking the news of your pregnancy to your partner for the first time (and everyone else) is a big deal.
A pregnancy announcement is an exciting moment, and it can be hard to keep the good news secret for so long, but it is worth the wait not to tell anyone until you and your partner are ready.
Telling others especially your family is also an emotional moment. To make your announcement memorable, plan a fun, relaxed and surprising reveal. The possibilities are quite simply endless when it comes to announcing it; here are some cool ideas on how to tell those closest to you the happy news.
Have A Baby Shower
A baby is on the way, and it calls for a celebration. Having a baby shower is a fun, great way to bring family and friends together to welcome a newborn. Planning a baby shower means choosing the perfect theme, and there is a variety of baby shower theme ideas for boys and girls. For example, themes like an underwater adventure for boys and modern florals for girls, and classic neutral colours if you have decided to leave the baby’s gender a surprise.
Send A Surprise Card With An Ultrasound Image
An ultrasound image says it all. You can box up a congratulations card with the special picture in between and present it to your family and friends. If you plan to save and savour the moment for a while, take photos or make a video.
This is a truly unique way to surprise your partner! Create a grocery list that includes baby food and nappies, or make sure all the items on the list have the word “baby” in it, for example, baby carrot, baby peas. Tell your partner you are going grocery shopping and show them the list before you go. Make sure to capture the happy expression on their face if you can!
Custom Made T-Shirts
While your partner is in the shower, you could just lay out a custom-made t-shirt on the bed with words like “Dad to be,” or “Keep calm, we’re having a baby.” It is another fun and exciting way of announcing your pregnancy to your partner and family. There is nothing quite as thrilling as choosing the perfect words to let them know you are expecting.
Have A Special Family Get Together
A get together is going to be quite a memorable and funny way to announce a pregnancy. It is similar to having a baby shower but without anyone knowing the purpose of the celebration yet. Have a family get together and afterward take a group photo. When everyone is in position, the photographer announces that you are pregnant! Make sure to capture the resulting reactions.
Announcing the news that you and your partner are going to be parents is an extra surprise occasion and very significant, so you should have fun sharing the news in an equally significant way. Big news deserves a big announcement!
