There's nothing more exciting than telling your friends and family that you're expecting — the buzz of their excitement will give you a natural high for days. You're lucky enough to be giving birth in the age of social media, which means you can announce the good news to your entire network with just a few hashtags and clicks. But before you put your announcement out there in cyberspace, you want to make sure you do it right. Because once it's out there, you can't take it back. To spark some inspo, here are some sample pregnancy announcement Instagram captions to study before you unleash your good news.

You can inject a bit of sarcasm or be as clever, cheesy, or sarcastic as you like, but you should find some relief knowing that you and your partner won't have to bother with licking dozens of stamps or making tons of phone calls — though friends and family on your A-list definitely deserve a ring. With the help of social media apps such as Instagram and Facebook, sharing your news is easy and instant.

Queen Bey took the pregnancy announcement game to the next level when she took to Instagram to share the news of the latest additions to the Carter family. Her post announcing her pregnancy with twins received over 6 million likes and nearly 340,000 comments within the first eight hours, according to People. And even if you're not hitting those numbers, your own pregnancy announcement can go viral throughout your network (and their network's network) pretty quickly.

Anyone who's ever been pregnant can totally relate.

6"Something's brewing in February 2018."

No one, and I mean no one, will be able to resist those tiny little shoes.

The sweet treats in this picture look so delicious that your friends may be distracted by them at first, but give them a minute and they'll realize what you actually mean.

15"The fourth is with us. Our Empire expands in March 2018."


Stars Wars fans will totally appreciate your ability to make Darth Vader a part of your pregnancy announcement, but disclaimer, this only works if your newborn will be the fourth member of your family.
