So most people I know already know that I am pregnant again, but I haven't "announced" on FB to people I don't see regularly. I have been wanting to do a happy announcement but also include my angel baby we lost last year (as well as my 7 y/o), and didn't really know how to go about it, so I just haven't done it yet. Since I have left it so long, I figure I may as well wait until I know the gender next week and include that as well!
I am lost for ideas! I guess the gender should be easy to include in to most announcements, but I am still not sure how I want to do it. My DP isn't much of a photo guy, so probably can't do a family photo without great difficulty.
For my gender reveal I'm doing a t shirt and having my son put his hands in either pink or blue paint and put them on my belly, then the next photo will be of him taking them off and showing the colour.
You could do the same but have a rainbow over the top of your child's handprints? As it's a rainbow baby?
Pinterest has given me so many ideas lol
One I had seen was with shoes to represent each family member, but I wasn't sure how to include lincoln in that without confusing people. I have some tiny knitted booties that were given to me by the hospital that I was thinking I could use, but not sure how to show that he is an angel, if that makes sense? I was thinking maybe something along the lines of a balloon tied to his booties, but was hoping I'd think of another way!
For my gender reveal, I wanted to do a smoke bomb on Amazon but the shipping took too long. So I settled for the old balloon pop (that we never popped). What I liked is it had three balloons but you didn't know which one had the confetti so you could shake it to find out and build suspense. I just used scratch cards from party city and decor from there and the dollar tree.
For my fb pregnancy reveal I attached. The woman who fostered the dog I adopted had really well trained dogs so she had them all laying in a row. The first had baby sunglasses on, the second had a folded onesie on his paws, and the third had blue baby shoes on his paws and next to them was a sign saying they were expecting. She was also super into photography so production value was crazy good. So I tried to get my dogs to do something similar but they are squirrelly
I wanted one that was more lottery card with the 3x3 array and you have to get like 3 of a sex to be right. So it would have 3 blue, 2 pink, and 4 random/blank squares it the one I went with was cheap and there lol
Excited for you!!!
Also I kept my reveal party to just family. I included friends by posting a status a few hours before for people to cast their votes, and wrote it on a chalkboard. I posted that with a picture of the decor and reveal and it was a nice way to include people without actually having them over lol
