What did you do to announce your pregnancy to your partner, family and friends?
I am thinking when it happens that I get a shoe box and buy a pair of baby shoes and ask DH to look at the pair of shoes I found. I love shoes so it fits! I also like the idea of placing a bun in the oven and see if he gets it. For our family and friends I want to put our other two children in t-shirts with some sort of saying and see how long it takes for them to notice. We didn't do anything for the other two but just say we were expecting I think it will be fun to do something funny or special!

My husband knew as soon as I did. It was an IVF pregnancy and he was there when I POAS.
A couple of friends that I don't see often, I sent a pic of my son in this t-shirt to them. Also, we are having DH family over for a BBQ next week and will put DS in the same t-shirt. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1457685792.553076.jpg

DH knew as soon as I had POAS as I was shocked to see 2 lines!
We announced to our parents by tying a dummy to a helium balloon and putting it in a box so that when they opened it the balloon floated up and the dummy was at eye level and they had to figure it out!
For everyone else we announced in December on FB by me simply changing my cover photo to some Xmas stockings over a fireplace with our names on them and an extra stocking saying "Due June 2015" and again waited for people to pick up on it!

I told DH straight away. I pretty well knew I was, and had already said as much to him.
For family, we made up Easter baskets and added a dummy, pair of socks, singlet and a spoon to each one.
My BFF guessed pretty early on, because I had stayed at her place when we went to Strictly Ballroom, and I had HG.
Extended family all got phone calls.
Friends were told as we saw them, or phone calls/texts if they were far away.
