"I am pregnant", "We have a bun in the oven", "We are expecting..." - there are so many expressions to share this most wonderful feeling and event. And there are just as many fun and creative ways to share these great news with your family and friends.

I collected 10 ideas to announce your pregnancy - from traditional to very creative. Get inspired and choose your favorite way to deliver your special news.

1. The traditional greeting card. Let everyone know by sending out greeting cards that present the exciting news or baby's first picture from the sonogram. Unfortunately, you won't be able to see their faces when they read the cards, but you'll surely get a lot of happy phonecalls afterwards.

4. A picture is worth a thousand words. And if you still feel like adding some words, try "Our family is growing by two feet"... or even more?
