Pregnancy announcements: How to say you’re expecting

Whether you spill the beans as soon as you see that BFP, hold out for the recommended 12 weeks or wait until you’re showing, how you share the special news that you’re expecting is something your family and friends won’t soon forget. Five Chicago area moms told us how they told the world that a new baby was on the way.

Marie-Edmonde Parisien apparently takes “bun in the oven” literally.

Laura Earle couldn’t wait to share her great news after several attempts with IVF. Her mom made the sweet booties and Earle and her husband paired them with their wedding shoes to tell friends.

Nicole Levine got a furry member of her family to share the big news.

Courtney Goodman announces baby #2. Big brother couldn’t be happier.

It’s a boy for the Wichmanowski family! (finally!)
