    So we still haven't told anyone (except a few) that we are expecting, thinking of going public next week but I don't know how to do it! :shrug:

    I announced my pregnancy on Christmas Day and wrote "Katy_28 has more than a turkey in her oven this Christmas" I didn't want to do the whole cryptic message thing, as I didn't want to confuse anyone, lol :wacko:

    This time around I put "version 4.0 is scheduled for release 30.05.2011" (cos it's my 4th baby) and a few hours later uploaded my 13 week scan piccy. Everyone cottoned on pretty quickly x

    I wrote something like, "I have a bun in the oven and it will be fully baked in May!" But a lot of people didn't notice or realize what I meant because I got a ton of "I didn't know you were pregs" comments when I announced it was a boy a month later. I think putting up a pic at the same time as the announcement would get more people's attention.

    I was Boring and just put 'is having another baby'. There's a thread over in 1st tri with heaps of different creative facebook posts announcing pregnancies, but I felt silly using any of them so just went fir the boring and simple option!

    I really uhm-ed and ah-ed over this as i didn't want it to be too obvious or too cheesy... So in the end i just put 'mummySS is craving gherkins :) '

    Most people got it! and my good friends knew already so immediately commented with congratulations etc.

    I'm reading some of the more creative ways to release the info on facebook and now Im really wishing I would have said something better but I just said that we were expecting a baby and how far along we were. It caught tons of attention because up until I was pregnant I was one of those people that said I really didnt want kids but as soon as I saw BFP I fell in love already

    I did it after our 20 week scan... we had known it was a boy for 2 months but, figured 9 months is a long time, and didnt want to bore people with it too early..... plus....really my good friends knew already!

    I was so excited I just blurted out "Guess who's pregnant?!" everywhere. Then I found the thread with all the creative messages and wished I had done something like that. No one really payed attention to my status though, and even after creating a new album with a picture of my BFP entitled "Our First Baby" I still got a lot of "Oh, so-and-so just told me you're pregnant!" That was also after I posted random statuses like "I thought pregnancy would mean nine months WITHOUT cramps!"
