Do you have a creative way to announce an unmarried pregnancy?

Asked by Taciturnu (6037points) January 30th, 2013

I’ve been with my boyfriend for quite a while and we live together but my very large extended family has not met him yet.

We both have trouble with fertility, so this is a huge blessing to us both! My mother and siblings are very excited, as is his Mom. I’m sure my extended family will be, too, but I’d like to tell them in a positive, exciting way to set the tone. Any ideas??? :)

married or not seems irrelevant… everyone should be excited when the announcemnt is made, perhaps a reveal party with baloons, children’s books as props . . . and a blown-up copy of your first ultrasound image as a focal piece.

Check out outfits here as well . . .Bun in the Oven

How about you could get your mom a gift, like a bib that says “I love grandma.”

Congratulations @Taciturnu !!! So excited for you! I think if you just tell people in your excited tone, they will be excited for you.

@Taciturnu Congratulations. I like the idea of a party, with you wearing a “Baby on Board” shirt. Best wishes lady.

Isn’t there a Louisiana Mardi Gras cake with something inside? You could swap out the other thing for a pink or blue pacifier, that may be fun. That’s all I got, sorry.

@ucme, that would work great if I could hand you a megaphone right before I enter a room. Lol

Thanks everyone for the well wishes! I like the short idea, too… Where would someone find a Mardi gras cake???
