7 Hot Tips to Tell Everyone That You Are Pregnant

By Emma Costello

So you're pregnant, its the most exciting time of your life and you can't wait to tell your family, your friends, even your husband... It doesn't matter whether you've just found out or you've waited for a month or two to make certain, you still want to make an impact. You're delirious and you want everyone else to be too.
Telling the Father: Have a candle lit dinner for two.Enjoy your quiet private time. It will be one of the last times before pregnancy chages your life. Give him baby carrots, baby back ribs, baby cauliflower ,even a can of baby food. At the end, a glass of milk instead of wine and hand him a present. Inside you can have a tiny baby bib that says, "I heart My Daddy" or a pair of baby booties or a book on raising your baby and what's going to happen in your pregnancy.If you can't tell the father right away because he's away on business for a while, or in the forces try sending him a care package. Inside the box place a few baby items, everything in blue and pink and a baby naming book in the center. Place a note on top of the book with, "I need a name soon, I'll be here by June." Or whenever the baby is due. Personally I'd recommend trying to wait until the father returns but if you can't make the pregnancy announcement fun.You can also see how long it takes him to work it out. Go to the dollar store and pick up a lot of small baby items, a bib, rattle, bottle, booties, etc. For a week, leave an item laying around the house where he is bound to find them. At the end of the week if he hasn't figured it out yet, and you're going mad at his stupidity, prepare the big gift. Have a large teddy bear sitting at the dinner table in the seat beside him, make sure there is a bib wrapped around him and maybe a sign that says:' Hi Daddy.' If he still doesn't get it then play the tape of a baby crying and he soon will.
Telling Family and Friends Show up to a family gathering wearing a shirt that announces your state. These days there are a ton of shirts out there with clever sayings, "Baby on Board," "A Bun in the Oven," or something related to the pregnancy. The moment you walk in or take off your jacket everyone will figure it out without you ever having to say a word. Now, get ready for the tears and excitement. You'll be answering a ton of questions.If you already have children you may want to call the grandparents up and tell them that the next Christmas they may want to add one more to the list. Your pregnancy is a big deal for them as well.If this is the first grandchild, you may want to get a bracelet link for your mom that reads, " The world's best grandma " or grandparent t-shirts. This will not only be a great present for them but something they will cherish and love forever.No matter when you spread the news it can be a lot of fun, just think creatively and let the pieces fall. You may even want to try catching all of it on video, so think ahead and prepare for the BIG moment, and I don't mean the birth.
