We have gathered some great ideas together to help you offer up your great news to the world in a creative way! Try one of these Pregnancy announcement ideas to share your exciting news!

Creative Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

1. An announcement card. This is similar to a baby announcement card. But instead of sharing that the baby is born, you are sharing that a baby is on it’s way. There are a lot of easy and free software sites you can use. I used a simple HP photo card software that came with my printer. Added a picture of my daughter making the announcement that she is going to be a big sister in September! And then printed it off.

Then place it somewhere fun for the husband or rest of the family to see. Or mail it off to friends and relatives.

2. Bun in the oven. This is a great play on words. Literally put a bun (a roll/bread) in the oven. With a note on the oven saying “arriving in 9 months” or “currently baking..” Or just take a photo of the bun in the oven and share it on social sites with your friends and family.

3. Baby food. For a fun way to let your spouse know, create a special dinner with all baby food. I don’t mean food from baby food jars. But food like baby carrots, baby corn, etc. Have the theme and see if he can figure it out.

4. Spaghetti Sauce! I saw this one on Pinterest. A couple shared that they were pregnancy by taking a selfie of the two of them with a jar of Prego sauce. With a caption saying “We’re Prego!”
Or if this is not your first pregnancy, include the other kids in the photos too like Nicole from For the Love of Food did in their awesome Pregnancy announcement.

5. A box of balloons! Some people don’t like to announce that they are expecting until they know the gender. And then they do a Gender Reveal announcement. One of which is filling up helium balloons in the color that coordinates with the baby’s gender (pink or blue). And hiding them all in the box. Then take a video as the balloons are released from the box revealing the gender of the baby.

6. Use the Ultrasound! And to make it even more fun dress up the Ultrasound to be extra cool like Hearts and Laserbeams did in their announcement.

14. Shirts! If you want something simple but still adorable, another idea is with cute shirts. For our big announcement to the rest of the world, I got Miss Jade this adorable “Keep Calm I’m Going To Be A Big Sister Tee (affiliate link)” We got it off of Amazon for not a lot and it totally was a hit. Since everyone knew Jade is our youngest, her having a shirt talking about being a big sister was quite obvious for us.
