Everyone knows that Facebook is where your friends and family want to learn that you're pregnant, but you need to break the baby news in a creative way if you want people to really take notice. If you're pregnant and you are still looking for a new and exciting way to make your announcement, look no further.


1. Draw a Picture

Posting your sonogram or a picture of baby shoes with your due date is okay, but it lacks a personal touch. If you have a knack for the fine arts, put those skills to use to make your big future-baby announcement.

5. Delay the Announcement

Surprising everyone with a pregnancy announcement on Facebook is good, but REALLY surprising them down the road is obviously much better. After getting pregnant, move somewhere off the grid and cut off contact with everyone you know. Discreetly give birth to a healthy son, raise it until he reaches sexual maturity, and then mate him with the young woman whom you have kidnapped from a nearby tribe.

Once a pregnancy has been achieved, get the whole family together for a nice portrait and make your big announcement on Facebook!
