 Pregnancy Announcement Posts and Captions

We know social media can be a big deal these days, and your pregnancy might not feel real until you post about it.

You can never go wrong with a letter board post. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. We have also seen the trending newspaper announcements if you want a more modern look! A simple yet modern twist on announcing your new baby to be.

 If you plan on keeping it simple, you can always opt for a photo of your ultrasound. Surround it with photo accessories like flowers, a cake, sweet treats, your dog or another animal in the household holding the photo with its mouth, or something that represents you and your partner!

 Picture this: an empty wine glass, the beach, a picnic, and your ultrasound photo with the caption “Do not refill until (Month)(Year)” 

If you're an avid coffee drinker… “It’s time to spill the beans… baby (last name) (#__) is brewing!”

For funny captions, here are some of our faves: “New roommate expected (month) (year),” “Looking forward to a new tax deduction in (year)!,” “I like big bumps, and I can not lie,” "We're going to need a bigger car," & "No, really... this is the last one."

For more than one kiddo we love these ideas: “Soon to be family of (number),” “ ‘Big Brother’ – they say it’s a promotion, but all I see is no pay raise & more responsibility,” “Only child expires (month) (year),” “We figured that since the kids are sleeping through the night, all heading off to school in the fall, and we got rid of absolutely every baby thing we own for the 2nd time… we might as well start all over again! Baby #4 coming in (month),” “Pink or blue, either will do – we’re expecting – baby #2.”

Other sneaky ways to announce pregnancy are leading a scavenger hunt for your family (works great with littles), dropping settle hints on social media, or in-person, or plan a surprise photoshoot! Let's see you get clever, Mama! 😉

Fun Ways to Tell Older Siblings about Your Pregnancy

Before you can post on your social media, the best part is telling your other littles and/or family members in person! Don’t feel like you need to rush it, Mama. Some kiddos aren’t too familiar with the concept of time (just yet), and waiting until the second trimester or late first trimester can help your little one visualize.

Depending on their age(s), some fun ways to tell older siblings about pregnancy is having them read a "Big Sister" book, or giving them a cute shirt to wear. 

Telling them with a baby doll, or other toy they are interested in may help them understand, too.

Creating a custom Big Sister/Brother book together and showing them how awesome it is to be an older sibling! Reading it as a family can gather excitement (and lots of questions)!

You can take them to your ultrasound appointment or show them the photo and have them try to depict what the photo represents. 

Watching a movie about babies like, Storks, Boss Baby and so many more. 

A more engaging way can be filling out what is called, a 'Baby Order' form. It is a fun way to get your kiddo more involved, have a better understanding, and to enhance that excitement! It's a free download too.
