6.  Balloons

Colorful balloons are also a great idea on how to announce a pregnancy. You can customize balloons with your baby’s due date or write other great captions like “knocked out,” “about to pop,” “new addition on the way.”

Many couples are using this theme as a great way to announce the baby’s birth. Either it’s your first scan, when the baby was pretty small, or a full-colored scan where the baby’s face is shown.

Facing towards each other, probably with your baby bump protruding, you both can hold the scan together and have a great photoshoot.


8.  A Bun In The Oven

This seems to be a popular way of how to announce pregnancy. I do not grasp the concept, but you can try it anyway. Since it is a commonly used way to announce pregnancy, you will pass the message “I am pregnant” clearly.

I like this pregnancy announcement idea. It is so hilarious. So, say you have a little one that still sleeps on the crib or acts baby and clingy around you, you can write hilarious signs like “you are evicted,” “notice of eviction,” “new tenant on board.”


10.  Announce With Food

Say you crave a lot of food, like me, while pregnant. You can have a photoshoot with the different foods you crave.

I saw one hilarious photoshoot on Facebook, where the woman took photos of her eating different meals.

And she pic mixed all of them. In the end, she snapped with all food surrounding her, and she fell asleep. You can find other great ways to snap with the food you love, and one who is intelligent will decode.


11.  Use Math Equations

This one is both fun and fantastic. I know not everyone likes math, but no one will miss the message with a simple math equation. For example, on a chalkboard or you make a poster, you can write 1+1~? Or 1+1+1+?~4. It will get people thinking.

Grab a pair of your pink sneakers or red heels and grab a pair of your partner’s boot or red sneakers, and in the middle, place baby shoes (boys or girl) and click away.

15.  With T-shirts

T-shirts are one of the commonest and simple ways to announce anything these days, and your partner can use this idea to announce your pregnancy.

Create great logos and designs with canvas or any other designing app on your system and print them out.

A simple, creative, and obvious way to announce your pregnancy, is with a test strip showing the two blue lines. You can share the good news to the world.


17.  Clothes On The Clothesline

Peg dad clothes, your clothes, and other kids’ clothes on the line and snap. Below you can write the sign. More laundry is expected.


18.  Announce With Scrabble

I love this pregnancy announcement idea. You can use it as a greeting to announce pregnancy to your husband if you both are scrabbling fans. All you need to do is convince him to play scrabble while on the game, shuffle up the board.

He would be shocked but give him a wait sign. Then build up the words “we are pregnant” or “we are expecting” I bet you would want to capture the look on his face when reading the caption.


19.  Fortune Cookie

Get a box of fortune cookies, tell the seller to slip in the news “we are pregnant” into the cookie, and use it as a great way to burst the information to your partner.


20.  Fruits Idea

Use fruits to pass the message across. You can get two big apples and one small apple and draw smiley faces on them. This should pass the message, or you can stick it in papers and write dad, mom, and baby.

Dad and mom can wear a jersey of their favorite sports ball club and snap holding a small jersey for the little one on board.

Get a cake and write baby on board or we are expecting and serve it at a family dinner. This would be a great way on how to announce your pregnancy to your parents who live far away.


23.  Puzzle

Make a customized puzzle with a great caption like “we are pregnant” or “we have a baby” of course, make sure that some missing pieces are left unfilled.

This should pass the message. You can use this as a great way to announce pregnancy on Facebook or to announce pregnancy on social media.


24.  Baby Onesies

A great way to announce the pregnancy and an outline favorite of mine. Get a customized baby onesie and write a unique caption, telling the world of the good news.


25.  Use Drinking Cups Of Different Sizes

You can get plastic or other cups and write “Dad,” “mom,” “Jane,” “Jan,” and for the baby on the way, put a baby bottle, and write the proposed name.

Snapping a photoshoot where the baby bump is showing with your partner gives the clearest indication that you are pregnant.


27.  Use A Mug To Say It

If you are good at photo shoot, you can get your favorite movie and design a logo that hints that you are having a baby.

Your pet can help you pass the message in a fun and cool photoshoot. Create fun posters with captions like “baby guard dog, I resume December” or “I am going to be a big sister” or “dad and mom are expecting a baby” or “baby on the way.” The captions are endless.


30.  Say It With Socks

Creatively send the message across that you are pregnant. You can get an old shoebox and stuff it with some decorations. Then write a beautiful note like “you are going to be a dad soon,” “proof that you are going to be the best dad in the world,” “or we have a baby.”

Complete the box with ribbon designs and drop it at a corner where your partner will go. This is a great way to pass the message and how to announce pregnancy.


32.  Light Box

To twist things up is similar to the idea of a gift box. You can get a light box, write a beautiful note or attach an ultrasound picture to pass the message.


33.  Letterboard Message

I love a particular one I saw on the internet termed aerial simplicity. Beautiful colored balloons were drawn with ribbons, and the caption big sister was written on the balloons. Cool right?
