Creative ways to say “I’m Pregnant”

May 9, 2008 at 9:51 am 9 comments

Creative ways to tell your partner that you’re pregnant:

  • Make a meal of baby corn, baby carrots, baby back ribs, a salad of baby greens, etc. and see if he understands the hint. If not, ask him what the common theme of the meal is and if he sees any significance.
  • Use a photo editing program like (free with registration online) to morph your face and your partner’s. Give him the photo and label it as “Our future-due in 9 months”
  • Wrap up a baby name book and give it to your partner saying that you bought him a great book about his future.
  • If you have a dog that runs to greet people who come to the door, tie a note around the dog’s collar saying “Jenny’s pregnant” for your partner to find.

Creative ways to tell you family/friends that you’re pregnant:

  • Mail birth announcements with your due date and a question mark for the name, sex, and weight.
  • Give them a framed photo of your ultrasound.
  • Have your older child wear a shirt that says “I’m going to be a big sister(or brother)”
  • Gather everyone for an impromptu family photo. Have your partner take the photo and say “Ok everyone, say Lucy’s pregnant!” instead of “cheese.” You’ll get a great photo of everyone’s reaction.
  • Invite everyone over for a dinner and when your guests come to the door, answer it with a pillow stuffed under your shirt to look pregnant. It is best if you can do it with a straight face. When they ask what’s going on, just tell them you’re practicing for what’s coming up in the next few months.
  • Before your partner gets home from work, decorate the living room with balloons and streamers and a sign that says “Welcome home DADDY!”
  • And of course, a picture can say a thousand words. Try this one on for size:

Many women wait until the end of their first trimester to tell friends and family (other than their partner) that they are pregnant. The chance of miscarriage is highest during the first trimester and it would be quite disappointing to tell everyone you’re pregnant and then have to tell them that you miscarried. Once you find out that you are pregnant you should start taking a prenatal vitamin if you haven’t already.

    This will be my 3rd, and we had been trying for awhile. We went to the craft store and bought iron on letters and numbers. Each child got a shirt that said “Third time’s a charm” on the front, and then the oldest had a #1 on the back, and a #2 for the second. On the front of my shirt on my belly was the #3. They waited at the top of the stairs to show off their two shirts. Once they were read, they turned around, and I came around the corner. He almost fell back out of the door!

    I recently found out I am pregnant with my first. My mom’s birthday was the day after I found out the news. I went out and bought her a grandma card. At first she thought the “grandma” part was a kick at her getting older and then she asked if it was true. Then she freaked!! It was perfect!!

    I am expecting my 3rd child, we told our parents by having our older two daughters wear T-shirts that said “I am going to be a BIG SISTER!” and “I am going to be a BIG SISTER AGAIN!” for the older one. It was funny because at first my father-in-law saw the younger ones T-shirt that said “I am going to be a BIG SISTER” and he said to her, “you can’t wear that shirt, you’re not a big sister” thinking it was the older one’s shirt from when she was born. Until he saw the older daughters shirt that said “BIG SISTER AGAIN!”. Then everyone FREAKED OUT!!!

      Where did you get the shirt that read “Big sister again’?
      I have looked at several websites and can’t find much.

    My husband and I made our pregnancy announcement to our family at 8 weeks. We tried to be creative with the announcement so we did it two different ways:

    1. We bought a few albums (for each family member) and on the first page we added the ultrasound photo along with the announcement “Baby Salazar arriving October 2014”

    2. We printed the ultra sound photo and the announcement (double-sided) and rolled it up into a scroll and stuffed it into a balloon for family members to pop it and see the surprise inside.

    Lastly, we recorded everyone’s reaction and made a compilation video to share with friends and family on Facebook. It was a lot of work, but SOOOO worth it. Here is the link below for our final result!
