Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

LAST UPDATED: May 05, 2021 | PUBLISHED: Sep 27, 2012 | By:

Over the last few years, we’ve had a lot of exciting news to share.  I wanted to share all of our ideas in one place, one post.  Hope you enjoy our pregnancy announcements and gender reveals.

We included Adalyn when announcing our second pregnancy creating a simple little flag for her to wave around.

When we took this gender reveal photo in anticipation of Aniston, I never imagined what a sensation it would be.  After all, this photograph was taken on our way out dinner with my in-laws, by my in-laws.  Since it became a Pinterest sensation, I have seen friends and people worldwide using it.  How exciting, and yet, so simple!

Of course we couldn’t resist having the girls share their excitement in anticipation of a baby brother or sister playing on the “bun in the oven” concept.

We utilized a family photo to create this simple pregnancy announcement, perfect for out of town family!

How did you share your big news?
Earlier this week, Adalyn and Aniston announced that we’re adding one more kiddo to the family.  We couldn’t be more excited!  While Chris’ family is in town, mine live in St. Louis.  I wanted to create a simple and cute way to announce our pregnancy to our out of town family.  A few weeks ago, we had our family photo taken.  I added “and then there were 5” and had it made into a puzzle.

This idea would also translate well into a gender reveal – I’m not so sure I’ll be doing one this time though!  After all, this is our little surprise baby!
