DH decided that since we saw the HB and a lot of people know already that he wanted to announce on facebook. I was content with waiting but I figured I could go either way. So we went ahead and announced. Part of me feels so guilty putting it on facebook because I know there are so many people that try and try to have babies and can't or have a really hard time. But DH pointed out that this is our time and our exciting thing and just don't go posting about the baby constantly and it shouldn't offend people. What are your thoughts on that?
I got this idea from another momma but she was having twins and her photographer was so great! Either way I thought it was just an adorable idea and did a similar thing with mine.
I captioned it (Expect the Unexpected... coming fall 2012!)
Cute! Really like the can idea. I'm trying to come up with something creative for FB, but we won't announce it till sometime in May (once I've had a hb reading in the 2nd tri).
I was one of those people who had a hard time conceiving DS. Took us 3 years. I didn't mind people announcing their pregnancies and such. You should be joyous and share what you want. I knew if a person was bothering me with all their pregnant/baby comments that I could block them on my newsfeed for awhile. Really, it was just the people who complained the entire pregnancy about how much they hate being pregnant that really bothered me. I wanted to yell at them to shut up and be thankful.

A lot of my friends who have kids have this profile picture that says "I'm so crafty, I make people!" I will probably add that or just status "We're thrilled to announce our house will be growing by 2 feet in 8 months!" And see how long it takes people to figure it out. Or just add a photo of my ultrasound and be completely up front about it. I can't decide.

Very cute! Love it! I"m so superstitous so we won't be announcig on fb until after the big scan so May/June. However, Ihad to tell my coworkers since I work with nitrous oxide and cannot be around it, and my boss's wife went to a salon where DH's cousin works and they were talking about me. Anyway Bosses wife brings up, "isn't it so exciting about Tiffany's pregnancy!" DH's cousin's jaw drops! She knew it was a secret! LOL! So I asked her not to tell just yet! But that is my perogative! Didn't have fb with the other kids!
aww- that's so cute
