Help me!

Post by 2BzzOrNot2Bzz on Wed Nov 24, 2010 2:54 pm

So after trying for 3 years for another one...I'm pregnant!!!!! Haven't told the family and friends yet.

We want to surprise them and do it on our Christmas card... Like:

Love,
the family plus baby on the way

I would love to announce tomorrow, but my family isn't in town for Thanksgiving AND it's too early yet to say anything. So Christmas is perfect timing.

How would you sign the card to announce the baby?

I you like photo cards, I think it would be cute to use a sonogram pic. You might even photo shop a little santa hat on the baby or something. Congrats to you & I am sure your family will be happy no matter how your choose to tell them

I found these ideas on a website

•Send a card. If a holiday or birthday is coming up, you can use greeting cards to announce your pregnancy. For example, send your mother a birthday card addressed to "Grandmom". She may be confused at first, until you sign the card "With love from your baby grandchild, due April 21st" (put your own due date on the card). When she receives this special greeting card, then "Grandmom" will understand what is going on!
•Give a gift. You can wrap up a jar of baby food, a baby bib or a pacifier and give it as a gift. The recipient may give you the third degree before it finally sinks it, but rest assured they will figure it out. If it's holiday time, put a clue in a Christmas stocking or a plastic Easter egg.

Another site suggested including a copy of the ultrasound in the card...

My sister sent my mom a pkg and inside were a pair of baby booties..right away mom knew she was going to be a grammy..

I'm sure you'll get all kinds of great ideas from everyone here. If you wanted to just do it in a card..the best one would probably be addressing it to "grandma" or "auntie" etc depending on who the card is for...

btw congrats!

Congrats!
I would probably just sign all the cards with all the current members of the family and the add "and Baby ____" at the end.

I agree with Rebecca, sign it normally, and add Baby2Bzz at the end.

CONGRATS!!

CONGRATS!!!

I'd sign it normal, and then put and baby.

or like for me when I was pregannt I wrote Love, The 5 of us. (baby was #5)

for easter my kids always make eggs with their names, and BR and I's names. When I got preg with Bow, BR and I did one that said "baby" my dad was even here- and NOONE got it. PERIOD.
They even READ the egg. BR and I just shrugged and walked away. gave them a week to try to fiqure it out.

So, for Matts birthday- at his party I took him in another room and told him, then we let him announce it at the party. Since my family is so dang dumb... LOL
