Letting your friends, family and the land of social media know that you are expecting gives you a chance to get creative.
But many of us simply don’t have the time to put on an elaborate song and dance to announce our big news. So here are some easy ways to stage the perfect photo that allows you to share your joy without spending big bucks or wasting too much time.
One cute idea is to simply use standard white socks hanging on the line. Adding an extra pair of baby socks with the clever caption, “Our house is growing by two feet” is the perfect way to get your message across with minimal effort and no Photoshop required.

Foodies everywhere will love this delicious way to share the news. And, again, so simple! All you need is a Sharpie, a big white bowl and some pleasing penmanship.
Get your partner involved by enjoying a meal and adding a bit of text at the top of the photo. Nothing says “We’re pregnant” quite like a pint of beer and a plate of chicken wings.
More into board games? Then how about announcing the pregnancy via Scrabble?
Another simple and elegant way to announce your pregnancy is to take a photo with a bump ahead sign.
Lots of people use the “morning sickness” photo but this one has to be our favourite. The juxtaposition between the poor mum-to-be and the smiling dad and daughter is just too cute!
Or, you could always instil the help of a celebrity to make your big news. Both Will Smith and Emily look pretty excited about the news.
How about staging a photo shoot like this adorable couple did? If you have a talent for drawing (especially with chalk), a tripod and a bit of time on your hands, then why not draw your own pregnancy?
Or, you could always simply add a bit of cute text to one of your photos to get the message across.
