Upon learning that you're expecting a baby — after the tears of joy and happy dance — you may go into planning overdrive. How could you not, with all of the ways you can celebrate this new addition to your life? There's scheming a way to let your loved ones in on your secret, planning an adorable gender reveal party, and shopping for your Pinterest-worthy nursery. So, when you're ready to tell the world (i.e., Instagram), you'll want to pick the perfect pregnancy announcement caption to reveal your bundle of joy.

For some, a witty caption is the way to go. If that sounds like you, go with the cheeky "we took Netflix and chill a little too seriously." Want something more sentimental? Express your feelings with "the best things in life are worth the wait."
