Congratulations! You’re officially expecting a baby. Now comes the fun part of telling everyone your exciting news. How do you want to do it? Not everyone can (or wants to) hire a professional photographer, and that’s totally understandable. So what creative ways can you share you're expecting with the world (Facebook), family, and friends? You may be looking for simple baby announcement ideas if you’re on a budget, but simple doesn’t have to mean boring. There are these handy things called smartphones that have pretty good cameras. And if you trust your amateur photography skills, these simple announcement ideas may just be the way to go.
As far as when you tell everyone your great news, everybody is different. Though many women wait until 12 weeks since the odds for having a miscarriage drop so much by that time, some women may want to have a large support system in place of family and friends who know, just in case the worst case scenario does happen. There are no rules set in stone about when you should tell your exciting news, just make sure that everyone you tell is aware that it’s your news to share since you’re the one that’s pregnant. Plus, you want to be able to tell people in these really cute ways yourself, right?
