I'm going to be announcing after my scan on Thursday. I want something cute but not too cute or obscure etc...
I'm googling around and found these so far:
"has something in the oven and she's not talking about tonight's dinner"
"is barefoot and..."
"needs to borrow your old baby clothes" (or "will need to borrow your old baby clothes come May!")
"you know you're living in the 21st century when you spend months trying to figure out how to announce your pregnancy on Facebook"
"....has a good excuse as to why her pants don't fit! "
"has the Egyptian flu" (I didn't get this one at first so I had to look it up... its a play on words hinting that you are 'becoming a mummy')
"apparently has two heartbeats right now"
".…is pregnant…….what’s your excuse?!"
"is nurturing her inner child…literally"
"twinkle twinkle little star,
how i wonder what you are,
we hoped and preyed it would happen one day,
OH IM PREGNANT BY THE WAY!"
What do you guys think? Have any of your own to suggest?
Adding suggestions from the pages.. let me know if I miss any good ones:

Other picture ideas:
change your profile pic to a jar of Prego spaghetti sauce
change your profile pic to a "baby on board" sign
post a picture of your child wearing a 'big brother/sister' themed shirt
post up a picture of the kids holding the scan picture and saying "look what mummy and daddy made for us"
take a picture with my husband. Make a little post under it that says: Dinner: $60, New clothes: $120, Ice cream: $6, knowing there is three people in the picture.... priceless
I'm hoping to tell my daughter (who is 3) and film her saying that she is going to be a big sis. Just a few seconds worth, nothing major. That's my big plan. If she doesn't co-operate then I'm going to have to go to Plan B, which is along the lines of Hey Y'all, I'm pregnant! LOL Not real original, right??
