To announce my pregnancy to my little sister I gave her a box of tampons. She gave me a look like I was stupid and said: "What are these for?" I said, "I won't be needing these for the next 9 months so I thought you could use them!" She was so caught off guard!

When I was pregnant with my son Liam, my husband and I had a T-shirt made for our Pomeranian, Ginger, that said "I'm going to be a big sister." She wore it to Mother's Day brunch to tell our moms that they were going to be grandmas.
When we were announcing our current pregnancy, we had a T-shirt made for our son that said "Big Brother in Training" on the front and "February '08" on the back. Of course we couldn't leave our little fur baby out so she got a tee that said "Not Again" -- which we thought suited her opinion on the matter. This time, Liam walked Ginger out during a Father's Day BBQ to tell the family.

I found out I was pregnant while my husband was on business and I didn't want to tell him over the phone. I saw some really funny onesies at Target that said things like "Party at My Crib" and "Tax Deduction." I decided I had to get the "Tax Deduction" onesie for my husband because he carefully manages our money. I wrapped it up and brought it with me when I went to pick him up at the airport. He was so shocked and kept asking if I was joking.
