Sharing your pregnancy with your friends and family can be a special event. Some people opt for surprise, and others go simple. Even celebrities sometimes get creative: Beyoncé announced her pregnancy by flashing her bump at MTV's Video Music Awards. We asked some of our readers what their pregnancy-announcement strategies were.
1. "We had our parents over for Chinese food. My husband replaced the generic fortunes with ones that read: 'There will be a new addition t your family' and 'Lucky numbers: 10-22-10.' That was our due date!" -Sheryl H., Kew Gardens, NY
2. "My husband and I were at a fundraiser for our local radio station, so I got on the mic and told him we were pregnant on the air. He cried!" -Sue J., via email
3. "When I got pregnant the second time, I made an 'I'm a Big Brother' shirt for my son and had him wear it to a family gathering. Watching everyone read and digest it was hilarious. Now I have to find a clever way of announcing my current pregnancy." -Stephanie D., Cuyahoga Falls, OH
