Congratulations! Finding out that you’re expecting is hard to keep to yourself, but before you share the news at your workplace, get inspired by these fun Pregnancy Announcement ideas.
Place a jar full of blue and pink jelly-beans on your desk with a note taped to the side that reads, 'From me and my little jelly bean'.” Send an e-mail out informing them that you have sweets at your desk and watch them slowly start wandering over.
Mix it With a Gender Reveal
Wait until you find out your baby’s gender and make two announcements at once. Armed with the results of your ultrasound, make cupcakes and add a few drops of red or blue food colouring to the batter. Bring in the homemade treats the following day and leave a note beside them.
Play an Old-fashioned Game of Telephone
If you work with a small group of people, tell one or two co-workers and let the gossip spread – a dose of good gossip is good for everyone!
Everyone Loves Bagels!
Arrive at work with a bag of bagels in hand and leave them in the kitchen along with a signed note that reads, 'This is the only food that my baby seems to want me to eat'.”
There’s no 'I' in Team
Announce your pregnancy by writing a memo to your co-workers letting them know that a new member will be joining the team. List the due date as the newest member’s start date and see who catches on – our guess is that co-workers with children will be the first to realise.
Co-workers love to chat about upcoming holiday plans, so during the next travel edition gabfest let it slip that you’re looking for 'babymoon' ideas. In addition to travel advice, you’ll surely get warm embraces and well wishes.
One person’s fun-loving work environment may be another person’s buttoned-up work environment, so before setting one of these Pregnancy Announcement ideas into motion, make sure to suss out your own work situation to decide on what reveal is the most appropriate!
