Creative Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy Online
by Ellen Schmidt

I think my husband and I would both agree that one of the best parts of pregnancy was announcing the news to our friends and family. Because our families both live in different parts of the country, we shared the news via Skype. I am so thankful for this digital age that we live in, especially being able to see my parents’ smiling faces when we shared our happy news. Click through for some of the most creative and fun ways to share your happy announcement—from rapping to a mini film to creative photography shoots, they’re sure to put a smile on your face!
Andrea and Isaac Reeve put an adorable video together using stop motion and posted it on YouTube
for their friends and family. Particularly fun for all of you Scrabble fans!
While nothing beats announcements/photos/cards in the mail, I notice that on Etsy, more and more shops are offering digital files only (for you to then print yourself). For something like a pregnancy announcement, if you want a more professional/design look, simply then take a digital pdf (like the one above from Studio 29
) and email it around to your friends and family (or share on social media).

Get creative with a chalkboard. Love this photo!
First of all, I challenge you not to cry during this one. This couple shared the news with her parents over Skype
by first alluding to it with a Dr. Seuss book given to her mom. The video
was later posted to YouTube. Her reaction is TOO CUTE!
What a clever idea for a photo announcement, and all it takes is a new pair of (baby) shoes ... or two pairs, in this case!
Rap It Out
Jalene and Lincoln Taylor of Utah struggled with getting pregnant for more than a year, so when the news was finally positive, they decided to share their announcement in a hilarious way. Oh, and the video
has quickly become an Internet sensation. Baby Taylor is going to get a kick out of this one day!
My husband and I did something similar on a photo I shared on Facebook, so I particularly love this one. When in doubt use your resources ... and congrats on your "bump"!
