I love, love, love pregnancy announcements. Even though my husband and I struggled with infertility for a while, I still get so excited when I see another couple announcing their pregnancy, both in person and on social media.

It’s so fun to see the creative photoshoots expecting couples and photographers come up with and to know that their lives are never going to be the same—in the most amazing way possible!

So I’ve become a bit of a pregnancy announcement collector if you will.

Here are our favorite ways we’ve seen others announce their pregnancy. There’s something for everyone, from Hogwarts fans drawing inspiration from Harry Potter for their big announcement, to couples incorporating their fur babies into the announcement of their human baby.

You’ll definitely find a pregnancy announcement you love and can re-create on your own!

When Should you Start Announcing your Pregnancy?

First things first and that is when should you announce your pregnancy? This is a personal decision and completely up to the parents to be!

Many couples like to tell family and close friends early on and then save the social media pregnancy announcement until mom to be is in her second trimester.

Other couples like to reveal the pregnancy and gender all at once after that 20-week ultrasound. Depending on how close you are with your family, you may want to make a pregnancy announcement to your parents sooner rather than later.

It’s totally up to you and when you feel comfortable sharing the news with everyone. Don’t feel pressured to announce it too soon. You’ll learn that a big part of being a parent is doing things your way and going at your own pace!

How Do I Announce My Pregnancy?
