Whether it’s a surprise or the next step in the plan right on schedule, finding out that you’re expecting a baby is always a big deal … and half the fun is sharing the news!

But how? What’s the best way to tell the world you’re going to expand your family? To help get your creative juices flowing, check out these pregnancy announcement stories from other moms:

1. Metaphorically speaking…

“I told my husband we were pregnant by having him hold out his hand. I placed a dried pea in it and said, “Want to hear something amazing? This is how small your baby is right now.” His face went from confusion to joy and tears. It was wonderful. We can’t wait to tell our families.” —Karen

2. Do I need to spell it out for you?

“When I found out I was pregnant with our first, I gave my husband a puzzle to put together that said, ‘Congratulations on your new arrival!’ As he held the last piece in place, he dropped it and started crying. With our second, I bought orange construction sign scrapbook stickers and wrote ‘Baby on Board.’ I placed two of them on my belly, then had our 3-year-old lift up my shirt for Daddy to see.” —Cyndee

3. You’ve got mail

“I took a digital picture of the pregnancy test and emailed it to my friends. The picture is great because the test was a digital test and it says PREGNANT. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on my presentation of our exciting news. This is definitely a different, modern way of sharing the results with friends and family who are not close by.” —Katrina S
