Creative facebook announcements?


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"
"[oven]bun[/oven]"
".…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?

EDIT:
Adding suggestions from the pages.. let me know if I miss any good ones:
"think she ate a baby"
"Yummy yummy yummy I got love in my tummy!!!"
"There is a pea in the pod... a bun in the oven... I Have Been... IMPREGNATED!"
"awaiting a special delivery"
"we have decided to expand our house by two feet... "
"Boy or girl, what will it be? We'll have to wait till June 2011 to see!"
"...Has a little something in the oven....and it ain't Christmas cookies!"
"What bounces but should never be dropped?"
"Honey, we need a bigger vehicle!"
just say "HB 147" see who gets it
we are renovating our home "............&.............have found a use for the spare room!"
"is carrying precious cargo"
"…is creating life, because that’s how I roll. Should be done the beginning to middle of May!"
"I hope two is easier than one!"
"…is growing brains and kidneys. Hard work."
"(Partners Name), is it ok if we tell everyone we are pregnant now?"
"has bid adieu to her toes and will see them again on (Due Date)"
"can count to 4 but is not sure how to wangle them"
"First came Love, second came Marriage, third comes a baby in a baby carriage!"
"It's official, I am no longer on a diet for at LEAST another 6 months"
"I never thought I would be so happy to be gaining weight!"
"Feeling nauseous these days, and smiling about it."
"(Partner's name) 'somehow' managed to put a baby in my belly!"
"can't wait till (due date)"
(for someone with several kids already) "Yes i do have a TV but it only shows PORN!"
"What can have a shower but not get wet?"
"we thought a family of 5 was an odd number.....so we changed it!"
"I'm growing a human! What's your super power?"
"What has dimples and a nose,
ten fingers and ten toes,
sweet fat little cheeks,
and in __ months you will meet? =) "
"Merry Christmas from (You), (Partner) and Baby **** No. 1!"
"...hasnt eaten all the (mince) pies, she's PREGNANT"
". . . is making dinner for the three of us" (for first child)
"wishes she could have that pint that i've been countin. down for, but doesn't think my little resident would appreciate it!'"
"more than just a turkey in the oven this xmas"




Scan pic caption ideas:
"...........has 190 days to go..."
"Baby under construction"
"Think there's an alien in my stomach"
"first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes. . . . . "
"due for release __/__/__"

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??
