One of the most exciting things about seeing those two parallel lines staring back at you on that pregnancy test aside from, well finding out you’re pregnant, is getting to tell your partner, family and close friends. Heck, even telling the cashier at your local bodega while you’re running an errand for body wash is exciting. There are tons of creative ways to spill the beans about your expecting status, but one of the easiest is by purchasing a set of pregnancy announcement cards to mail out to those who mean the most to you. You can purchase them easily online and have them sent right to your doorstep within a few business days.
Here are some of the funniest, most clever and entertaining pregnancy announcement cards we’re loving in 2021:
If one of your very first thoughts, after you let the idea of your pregnancy sink in, was the fact that you have to give up wine for the next 9+ months, no judgment here! We’re living in stressful times, and if your glass of vino was holding you together, you might be wondering how you’ll go without it. Share the humor with your family (but, of course, stay off the wine until baby arrives).
Have a sister who loves scratch-off cards? There’s no better way to tell her she’s going to be an auntie than with this card clad with a gold scratch-off heart that, when removed, tells her the exciting news! Each card is smaller than a typical greeting card (5.5 x 4.25 inches) and comes on premium white card stock with a pink envelope—all packaged in a waterproof clear sleeve.
Make the most of the humorous parts of pregnancy with this announcement card that just says it how it is, and maybe clues some of your friends and family into the unexpected perks of pregnancy (like your amazing, albeit ginormous, boobs).
If you’re looking for a simple way to tell your partner they’re going to be a parent, this pretty much spells it out as simply as possible with a side of humor, because why not? The outside says “What is a dad?” and the inside reveals, “you are a dad!”
If you’re looking for a sweet way to share the news with your family and friends, this card accomplishes that goal. It includes a spot for you to include a photo, be it if you and your partner or simply a snapshot of your ultrasound, along with some words describing “baby” along with the one who matters most: ours.
If you and your partner have a keen sense of humor, you can’t go wrong with this card which pretty much puts it all out there. You can custom design the inside to say whatever you want (in case you don’t feel like revealing your baby’s sex —or if you don’t yet know!).
Everyone can relate to the old avocado pregnancy joke—especially moms-to-be in their second and third trimesters who feel pretty darn close to the green fruit (yes, fruit). This simple, but adorably sweet card says it all in a way that your friends and family will appreciate. It’s definitely fridge-worthy.
For all the friends, family members and perfect strangers who’ve asked you through the months (or years) when you’re going to start trying for a baby (like it’s any of their business anyway) can officially shut up after receiving this sweet and funny card.
Now that you’re pregnant, stock up on these pregnancy essentials.
