5 Ways You Should NOT Announce a Pregnancy

Written by Devan McGuinness for

I am starting to get a bit discouraged about this whole getting pregnant thing. Well, more specifically staying pregnant -- which is our struggle. I am trying not to dwell too much on the cycle after cycle of not-the-best-news, so I have been focusing my energy on the more positive things, including how we will announce the pregnancy of our last child when that happens.

There are some totally cute ways and it's even more fun now that there is the whole social media aspect. When I was pregnant with my other children social media wasn't a huge part of my life, but now with all these ideas all over the internet on fun ways to announce, it has me excited.

With all the ideas and choices come some of the tackiest and cheesiest ideas too. I totally get that there is this whole "to each their own" thing when it comes to this stuff, but some of the announcements out there are just tacky!
