How Would You Annouce It To The Family?

This is it!

You got the test out one early morning and HURRAY it is + (positive). Now, how to you announce it to the family. Who do you tell first? Do you do a telephone conference? :) or send an email? Or you simply direct them to your blog :)?

Mmm, this is one of things that I have to consider when the important day is here.

How did you announce it? If you are TTC how will you announce?

Please share with me.


  1. CONGRATS!!!!!!!! I'm so excited for you!!

    I waited until after we had our first ultrasound (which was around 6 weeks), so that I could gather my family up and show them the ultrasound picture. It was such a memorable experience. I'm sure they'll be happy for you regardless of how you break the news. Congrats again!!!

  2. we were so excited that we just called our parents (they both live far away) so we could tell them over the phone.

    we did something more fun when we found out it was a boy: I bought a shirt that said "It's a Boy", took some really good photos and emailed to his family. we were visiting my family the next week....so I wore the shirt off the plane. no one knew that we even found out the sex yet.

  3. We announced to our parents right away and we did it through a framed poem that went:

    I do not have a face to see
    or put inside a frame
    I do not have soft cheeks to kiss
    I don't yet have a name.
    You can't yet hold my tiny hands
    Nor whisper in my ear.
    It's still too soon to sing a song,
    Or cuddle me so near.
    But all will change come ___enter due date month__
    That's when they say I'm due.
    I'm your new grandson or graddaughter.
    I can't wait til I meet you.
    All I ask between now and then
    Is your patience while I grow.
    I promise I'll be worth the wait.
    Because of all the love we'll know.
    So what I have to give you now,
    Is a wish to you from me.
    I cannot wait to be a part
    Of this wonderful family.

    We waited to tell everyone else until around 11 weeks after we had had an ultrasound. We just posted the ultrasound pic of facebook and word spread!

  4. We were a little boring.....We just called the ol' parents up and said "We have news!" It was a few months after the honeymoon, so no surprises.

    However, my friend gave her parents a "Baby's first Christmas" ornament as a little gift. Since it was in July, they had to do some head scratching first. Thought that was cute!

  5. I decided to wait until after I had been to the doctor to confirm that my home pregnancy test wasn't false positive before telling my mom. She came over one night on her way home from visiting my younger sister and I told her that I had a letter for her. Little did she know it was a letter from my doctor with my due date printed on it. She was a little bit surprised at first but eventually came around.

  6. Thanks everyone for sharing.

    Hello Mrs. V, thanks for the congratulations but at the moment I am not 100% sure. I still think is too early, the post is just questioning how to announce to the family. I like the way you did it. I really hope Hubby and I can do that very soon :)!

    Great idea Dana, so fun the way to announced the sex.

    The Bailey Family, the creativity in the announcement is superb. The love the poem :). Thanks so much for sharing.

    All I ask is God to show his way :). I am happy no matter the outcome :)!

  7. Hey there, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I definitely plan to follow you also. We do have some similarities. Good luck on your journey :) BTW...I saw that you were raised in Italy--cool. I studied Italian for 6 years but you wouldn't know that. I can't speak it anymore because I haven't used it in years. We have yet to visit Italy--but someday I hope we do...


Yes, I L*O*V*E them and look forward to receive great advice and encouragement. Let me know you are here, just write hi :)
