I bought custom pink and blue M&M's that said, "WE'RE PREGNANT" on one side and the due date on the other. I poured them in a bowl to share at a family get together. It took a while before someone read them but when they did, everyone's reaction was priceless! We also sent a bag to our family in Ireland. I wish we could have seen their faces as well, but their reaction online and on the phone was still a lot of fun. ~Chimmy, Pregnancy.org member
Put 'Em on the Spot: Create a situation for self-discovery, sit back and enjoy the responses.
I handed my mom an "important survey." On the front it said, "Please mark your selection and return by August 14" (my due date). On the inside was a list of check-boxes next to 10 different "Grandma" names. She started to fill it out and then tossed the survey and pencil and jumped up to hug me! ~Cindy, Pregnancy.org member
