Re: Christmas Cards....

My sister had her most recent one on my EDD and she just sent out Christmas type birth announcements...Not sure what we will do quite yet!

Anyone thought of announcing your pregnancy w some type of card? I thought of maki g a Christmas card w the kids holding a present w a tag that says "due dec 18, 2013" and say something like well be too busy for cards this December so getting them out early!

I thought I'd send them to family ad friends and just wait for the calls!

I thought someone else wrote about doing this? Any suggestions on the wording?

that's our plan to announce to our family. I am gonna send out Christmas cards in June and use them as an invitation to our house and sign them from the new baby.

I thought someone else had mentioned doing that! I hope I can get myself organized to do it!

Maybe you are talking about how I said I'd post on FB. I am planning to post something like:
Andy and I are working hard on a special Christmas gift! Should be here around Christmas Eve (my due date), I hope he/she isn't hard to deliver!

I'd have to look back to see exactly how I worded it there but that is the basic idea. We are hoping to hold out until we know the gender but odds are I'll be showing before then.

Re: Christmas Cards....

My EDD (I go tomorrow so then will see what the doc says) is 12-6, so I am hoping I give birth around then, and can get cards out by the 20th! That's my plan.....DS was 10 days late though, so that may throw a wrench in those plans! Why can't this be more predictable? LOL.

Re: Christmas Cards....

I will be a scheduled c-section. From my chart (we go next week to get the dr to confirm) I will have the baby on the 19th. DH just wants to email a Christmas card. That way everyone is in the picture and he doesn't have to look up any addresses.

Re: Christmas Cards....

We don't send out Christmas cards per say, mostly just holiday wishes. We do send out New Year's cards with photo's of the past year in them, and we would probably send a picture and announcement then.
