When to Announce Your Pregnancy

Before you plan out your pregnancy announcement, there are a few things you should consider. 

  • Is it the right time to announce my pregnancy? Some experts advise waiting to announce your pregnancy until after the first trimester (around 13 weeks along). Your risk of miscarriage drops dramatically at that point. However, some people ignore this advice because if they DO miscarry they want the support of friends and family. Don’t feel pressured to announce at the holidays if you want to wait a little longer into your pregnancy. 
  • Could our news cause sadness for someone going through infertility or a recent loss? The holidays are hard enough for people going through a rough time… if your announcement might cause more pain for someone in your friend or family group consider waiting or gently tell them the news prior to the holiday celebration. 
  • Do we want to announce the gender at the same time? Thanks to high-tech blood tests, you can find out the gender of your baby quite early. If you can and want to announce your baby’s gender at the same time you announce their impending arrival, make arrangements for the blood test and/or wait to announce until you know. 
  • The overall rule for announcing your pregnancy should be “you do you!” If you want to announce at Christmas and are only 7 weeks along, go for it! If you want to wait until you are 13 weeks along and that doesn’t correspond with a holiday, it will still be exciting and special!

13 Cute Christmas Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

Christmas offers the perfect stage for announcing a pregnancy because you can do it with presents or decor. Since it is Christmas, no one will think twice about receiving a gift and it will make an extra fun surprise. 

1) Personalized Christmas Ornament

This ornament can be personalized with your ultrasound picture and due date. You can hang it on your tree and see if anyone notices OR give it as a gift. Adorable!

2) Keepsake Christmas Bauble as a gift

This keepsake ornament is the perfect way to tell parents they’ve been promoted to grandparents. You can personalize it with your favorite Grandparent nickname (Nanny? Nana? Papa? Pops?) and add the year when baby is due. Don’t forget to  record their reaction and put it on YouTube for all of us to watch! 🙂 

3) With a T-Shirt (or a sweater)

Wearing these hilarious tongue-in-cheek pregnancy shirts will result in laughter and tears of joy! Tons of different colors and sizes to choose from. Just take off your winter coat and wait for the realization to set in. 

4) Sibling T-shirts

Let your kids break the news with a “Promoted to Big Sister/Brother” t-shirt. Is there anything cuter than a little one being a big sibling? I think not!

5) Personalized Puzzle

If your family has a holiday puzzle tradition these custom pregnancy reveal puzzles are perfection. You can choose a smaller 15 piece puzzle or this 48 piece color puzzle that includes a picture of your ultrasound. One benefit of  this pregnancy announcement is that you can re-use it to tell lots of different family members.

6) Mini Stocking for Baby

Hang a mini stocking and see who notices first! Let your mantle do the talking and hang a small stocking. You could even get one customized to say “Baby.” 

7) Decorated Cookies

Say it with decorated cookies: If you are hosting a party or tasked with bringing refreshments, you could have typical holiday cookie shapes and then throw in one that says, “Baby coming 2021.”

8) Decorate a Cake

Or say it with a decorated cake: Same idea, different dessert. A cake might be a little easier to fit the whole message on!

9) Break the News With a Beautiful Card 

“Merry Christmas, We’re getting you a Grandchild” card. This handmade card will break the news to your family in a colorful way. You can also mail it to far away friends and relatives.

12) Pregnancy Announcement for Grandparents Wine Label
