Being pregnant with twins means twice the work but it also means twice the fun. Announcing that you’re pregnant can be really exciting and you can also get creative.
If you already have a child, get a t-shirt with the words ‘I’m going to be a big sister/brother to twins’. Have your little one put it on, take a picture and share it with your family and friends. This is a great way to get other kids involved and is a fun way to announce you are expecting two little bundles of joy.
Announcing your pregnancy on social media is pretty common nowadays. Why not purchase two sets of baby booties, take a picture and upload it to your account. You could caption it ‘four tiny feet will soon be filling these four tiny shoes’.
To share the news with close family and friends, why not take a copy of the ultrasound and pop it in a frame. Write on the frame 'two for one – two babies, one pregnancy’. Wrap it up and wait for their reaction as they unwrap it.
Bun in the oven
Pop two buns in your oven, take a picture, share it with friends and watch how long it takes people to figure it out.
Read a book
Why not take a picture of you reading a book about twins. Just like the bun in the oven, it may take friends a little while to figure it out, but when they do you might want to be around for their reaction.
Line up a pair of shoes belonging to everyone and place an extra two pairs at the end. Take a photo and when sending it to friends and family caption it ‘four extra feet will fill these shoes’
If you know the gender of your babies, why not announce your pregnancy using teddy bears. If you are having a boy and a girl, two girls or two boys use either a pink or blue teddy to represent each child. Take a picture and write ‘two teddies waiting for two little friends’.
Take a picture of your belly with you pointing at it with two fingers. Caption the snap ‘baby number one is here and baby number two is here'.
This is not an exhaustive list of ways to announce your happy news, but it does give you a few ideas to work with. Have some fun making up your own.
