Creative Ways to Announce Pregnancy on Facebook.

So I'm only 5 weeks along and I'm not planning on announcing my pregnancy on Facebook until I'm around 13 weeks, maybe even a little longer. But I've already been thinking how to do it. I've seen the picture of the bun in the oven, the ultrasound pic, the prego jar, the kids with big sister, big brother shirts etc. So I want to do something new, cute and creative. I've been looking online and I found a couple that might be cute. One was, "today's lucky numbers are....and then add my due date." See how long it takes people to get it. Or maybe say "i'm growing a tiny human. What are you doing today?" Or take a picture of everyone's shoes lined up and then add some new infant shoes at the end. Or have my oldest hold up a sign that says 1st, my next one says 2nd and my 3rd little girl holds up a sign that says Last, but the Last is crossed out and 3rd is writen above it. So do you guys like these? Or can you think of another cute way to announce? Thanks Ladies.

What can I do next?

My friend and I both were pregnant at the same time - she did the cutest thing which was on Halloween she dressed up as a chef with a chef hat and apron and a t-shirt that said bun with an arrow pointing to her belly. I was jealous of her cute idea! Halloween may be too far along for you - you'd be 20 or so weeks by then but you could dress up and take a pic and then save the costume for halloween. :-)

When I get pregnant, I want to post a picture of my DD wearing a big sister shirt... Not really original, but I like it.

I LOVE some of the things I have seen on pinterest. (I will post the link to all the prego announcements...)

I really liked 2 in particular... One where the mom is holding a jar of Prego (pasta sauce) at the camera...

the other is a picture of Dad holding the daughter (plus sign) then a picture of Mom (Equals) 4. :) (although, yours would have to be equals 6... lol.)

You could combine a couple of ideas... (This one is Katie's, plus one I saw on pinterest...) like line up a pair of each child's shoes, and put a pair of baby shoes at the end, and make the caption "We are adding to our house by 2 feet!"

One of my kids did it by opening the oven door, taking a very large roll, placing it inside on the rack, and taking a picture... so what the viewers got was "a bun in the oven."

My sister in law, took a pic of each family members shoes all lined up in order biggest to smallest, with a new baby pair at the end. The caption said "Our family is growing by two feet" I think that I like Family better then House.
good luck!

What about a variation of the 1, 2, 3...have them hold the signs w/ 1st, 2nd, and 3 but then have someone else hold a sign (so just the sign is visible in the picture) that says "debuting April 2013" (or whenever your due date is). Another saying could be "See you in April 2013".
