Congrats, you’re expecting!! Pregnancy is your first experience through the exciting journey into motherhood and you’re just at the beginning! The best is yet to come!
If you just recently found out that you’re pregnant, you’re probably anxiously wanting to tell family, friends, and coworkers. The timing and way that you announce your pregnancy can be a tough decision for many parents-to-be.
There’s a lot of controversy and personal preference when it comes to when and how to tell close friends and everyone else that you’re expecting. Some women prefer to wait until they are out of the 1st trimester (13 weeks) to spread the news, some wait until the first ultrasound (7-8 weeks), and some can’t help but tell everyone right after they get a positive pregnancy test.
You may want to blast it off on social media to your entire social circle or prefer to just keep it between close friends and family until the baby is born. However you decide, the choice is yours to determine how and when you are most comfortable with telling others.
Either way, the announcement will come soon, so you are in the right place for ideas on how you’ll capture that moment.

Baby Items on a Clothing Line
You can use this pregnancy announcement idea for any season, but to make it Holiday festive, go with Christmas colors or cold weather items, like the buffalo plaid print onesie, a knit hat and booties.
Christmas Pajamas by the Tree
What’s more basic and cliche than family photos in Christmas pajamas in front of the tree? Grab your matching buffalo plaid pajamas with your hubby and take a cute photo to announce your Christmas pregnancy. Don’t forget to include a subtle hint that you’re expecting like cheersing mom and dad mugs, holding an ultrasound, or holding mommy’s belly with a pregnancy reveal shirt.
Festive Floral Flat Lay
Get a festive flat lay from Etsy personalized with your baby’s name and due date, perfect to quickly upload to your social media. Don’t waste time taking photos and buying props that you’ll never use again, just do it the easy way!
Backlit Christmas Tree
I love the look of a backlit Christmas tree to show off your new bump. If you’re announcing your pregnancy a little bit later, you should have a good enough bump to showcase in this type of photo. Otherwise push your belly out or take the photo after a big meal. It’s sure to be big enough for this silhouette photo then!
Holding a Festive Onesie
This is an adorable idea for your Christmas pregnancy announcement this year. Add some simple accessories, like a Santa hat and festive onesie, to your holiday photos with your partner or family and make the baby reveal in a subtle way.
These couples have a beautiful backdrop and announce their pregnancy by holding a onesie for the big reveal. Book a mini session with a local photographer to get a beautiful scene like these and don’t forget your coming soon or personalized onesie.
Holding the Ultrasound
This is a great way to announce your pregnancy on a Christmas card with this saying to welcome your bundle of joy. It’s also a simple way to get a sweet photo of you, your husband, and your baby.
Christmas Pajama Flat Lay
Use this Christmas flat lay for your pregnancy announcement by simply purchasing the digital file on Etsy. Upload it right to your social media account with no photo taking, prop buying, or editing!
Hand on Belly
Here is a very subtle way to announce your pregnancy at Christmastime. At your holiday photo sessions, have your husband place a subtle hand on your belly. You may not be showing yet, but it will certainly get the point across.
Showcase your Christmas pregnancy announcement ornament on a tree for a gorgeous photo. To add some more detail to the picture, I love how the couple above is standing behind the tree in a blurred background with their Baby Bear ornament. Below, this Red Coming Soon Ball ornament hangs next to an ultrasound for the perfect announcement photo.
The gorgeous ornaments above and below make a great announcement by just photographing them on your tree and showing it to family and friends.
A Sweet Belly Kiss
I’m sure dad-to-be can’t stop kissing your belly at this point. Why not show the love between dad and your sweet baby with a kiss on the belly to announce your pregnancy this Christmas? Add some mistletoe over his head while he’s kissing your belly for the sweetest picture ever!
All We Want for Christmas is a Baby
This is a chic Christmas pregnancy announcement, but still ads in some holiday spirit. The couple isn’t decked out in red and green, but they have a Christmas wreathe in the background and a cute saying on the letter board.
Snowy Flat Lay
Flat lays are super easy to use as social media Christmas pregnancy announcements. You simply give the Etsy seller your personalized information and you get this digital flat lay announcement ready fo your big reveal! No messing with taking your own photos!
Mom and Dad Mugs
A sweet at-home photo shoot works great in some flannel pajamas and hot cocoa mugs. Kick it up a notch outdoors in a Christmas tree farm to give a truly cozy holiday feel.
Eating for Two
This flat lay with Christmas cookies and a letter board showing that you’re eating for two is sure to get the point across. Now enjoy all those holiday snacks and desserts while you can!
Pregnancy Shirt Announcement
Wearing a shirt to announce your pregnancy is a cute way to reveal the big news. Merry Christmas *Also, I’m Pregnant is adorable and a great way to catch family and friends of guard (because c’mon, who really reads the fine print?)
So Long Silent Nights
This pregnancy announcement phrase has long been used for the Christmas baby reveals, but it doesn’t get old! After all, it’s true! Kiss those silent nights goodbye!
The script baby balloons are a classic prop for pregnancy announcements no matter the season. However, they look especially beautiful in this snowy, winter scene.
Greatest Gift Will Be Unwrapped
I love this cute saying by the presents under the tree, but they could have done a bit better on the sign creation! Grab one on Etsy to make it look really professional and add the baby shoes and ultrasound with a bow to complete it!
Brushing up on some reading
This photo is similar to the ones at the top: some Christmas buffalo plaid pajamas in front of the tree. However, this couple goes a step further to add a little humor. Break out your What to Expect books and maybe a witty saying on a letter board to make a unique Christmas pregnancy announcement.
I hope you got some great ideas for your Christmas pregnancy announcement. You’ll be giving friends and family the greatest gift of all this holiday season!
