Creative Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy to Your Parents

One of the most exciting things about being pregnant is sharing the news with your parents and family. Your parents might have never told you but they look forward to becoming grandparents and will get really emotional after the news. Whenever you do decide to share your exciting news, here are 15 insanely fun and creative pregnancy announcement ideas to parents and family they will never forget! 

Pregnancy announcement scratch off cards


These pregnancy announcement scratch-off cards are pretty cool because you can customize them by yourself! All you need to make this unique announcement card is to download this printable file from here and print it at home or in a local print shop. Then you would need to get these scratch-off heart stickers from Amazon to cover your personalized message. The words “we’ve got something to tell you” are printed on the front of the card in adorable calligraphy, and when you open it, there are the revealing words  “You Are Going To Be…”. Below the words, you can write “Daddy/Auntie/Nana/Grandad, etc” or anything you want. Then, you just need to cover your message with a golden heart-shaped scratch-off sticker that you can get from here, and it’s ready to go! 

Download the printable pregnancy announcement card from here. It’s important to note that in this downloadable file there are 2 sides of the print. So after you print the first page of the front of the card, you need to use the same printed paper, and just flip it over to the other side to print on it the inside wording (where the “SCRATCH TO REVEAL” messaging is). 


Another super cute version of this scratchable pregnancy announcement card is this card right here – get it from Amazon.
