    Default Help on how to announce pregnancy.

    So on Saturday we got our BFP! Yay!

    We decided to send both the grandmas a mothers day card and surprise them with the news.

    The cards both say 'to grandma' so we want it to be from DS to them, but to put it all together somehow.

    I need ideas ladies

    ANY!!! Lol

    Are you on pinterest? Saw some cute ideas on the weekend, one was a photo collage of the toddler holding signs I think there were three somethign like this

    1) Guess What
    2) I'm going to be a big sister
    3) Baby due . . . .


    Or buy some iron on printable fabric and make DS a t-shirt saying I'm going to be a big brother in "Jan 2013", take a pic of him wearing it and turn it into a card

    A picture of DS playing with 1 toy and another lonely toy nearby, with the caption 'waiting for a playmate' then inside only 6months 2 weeks to go

    Lots more on pinterest

    HTH

    Go on madeit.com or etsy and type 'big brother/sister' into the search box. There are some BRILLIANT ideas. We already bought dd a shirt that has a big lioness and a little lion nuzzling, with the words "being a big sister is going to be grrrrrreat!"

    Not even pregnant yet, just couldn't resist!

    I gave my parents a photo frame that had 'baby's first scan' written on it and I printed out our first scan and put that in and gave it to them. You couldn't see anything on the scan, it was so early but they knew straight away what it meant.

    Perhaps you could find one like that and put a note in the frame with an IOU a photo or something?
