I was pretty creative when announcing our first pregnancy to the Grandparents and wondered what everyone planned to do or do you have ideas?
This is what I used last time. I printed this poem and put it into a frame. (feel free to use if you'd like)
I do not have a face to see,
Or put inside a frame.
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss,
I don't yet have a name.
You can't yet hold my tiny hands,
Nor whisper in my ear.
It's still too soon to sing a song,
Or cuddle me so near.
But all will change come October,
That's when they say I'm due.
I'm your new grandson or granddaughter,
I can't wait till I meet you.
All I ask between now and then,
Is your patience while I grow.
I promise I'll be worth the wait,
Because of all the love we'll know.
So what I have to give you now,
is a wish to you from me.
I cannot wait to be a part
Of this wonderful family.
I was thinking that I'd be 12 weeks right around easter so thinking of hiding somethign in an egg or doing something easter-related maybe something about the real egg will hatch october 2012 orrr idk, I'll have to think about it more when the time comes!!
We're very boring when it comes to announcing, we're not very creative. I just got shirts for the boys, DS2's says "I'm going to be a big brother" and DS1's says "I'm going to be a big brother AGAIN". I had planned to wait until Easter to tell them parents but we'll probably tell them after my 12 week appt as long as I hear the hb again and everything seems fine.
I have told 1 friend and my mom. DH has told his brother, sister and parents. Since ive had a m/c before we like to tell family in case we need that support again. We will tell everyone else at 12 weeks (if we can hold out that long). This will be my 4th pregnancy and I show very early on so sometimes its quite obvious and there is no hidding it so were forced to come out with the news sooner. I saw this pic on Instagram and thought it was such a cute way to share the news via Facebook. He didnt get it so needless to say he doesnt want to share the news that cause he thinks no one else will get it either -___-

We told his parents on Monday because they are leaving forand vacation for 6 weeks and im going to tell my family tomorrow night. I took a picture of all our shoes and a pair of baby shoes and under it wrote baby #2 stepping into our lives oct. 2012. I posted a pic in my intro thread. Some girls off my other birth board came up with the idea and I borrowed it it
This is what we did with our last pregnancy from last summer. I loved our video! Too bad the baby didn't stick around to see it all through.
It had our last names in it at the time, but I made a more online-friendly version.
