A Pinterest guide to the Top Christmas Pregnancy Announcement Ideas 2019

Letterboard with Naughty Checked 

We can’t help but smile at @ruthannecantrelle’s cheeky reference to how the baby came to be. The simple black and white of the letterboard and ultrasound photo are framed by a gorgeous pallet of colorful holiday imagery. We love how many pieces from nature are incorporated into the background, amplifying the overall beauty and adding texture.

Simple Joy

We cannot peel our eyes away from this one from @pnwpregnancy. An expecting mother sits with her hand resting on her baby bump. The background is completely white except for an out-of-focus Christmas tree filling up the left third of the image. And it is absolutely breathtaking!

Oops I Did It Again T-Shirt


The more the merrir! Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Baby #2 is due in May 2018.

In another witty announcement, this post by @theorlandomama features a family photo with Dad in a shirt that reads “Oops I did it again”. Mom’s top reads, “Oh deer!” and baby #1 is snuggled between the two in cozy Christmas plaid. We love how this family photo is so simple but tells such big news!

The Ultrasound Speaks for Itself


The secret is out! So excited for you guys!

This stunning shot captured by @barryblessedphotography requires no caption. An ultrasound sits in the foreground, while the expecting couple embraces in the out of focus background. The Christmas imagery is absolutely breathtaking and the simple pallet of dark green and white is just perfect. 

Silent Nights Are About To End

We can’t get enough of letterboards. In this post, @alifeinlabor references the classic Christmas carol, Silent Night, spelling out, “Our Silent Nights End July 2019”. The letterboard sits within a wreath and an ultrasound photo rests subtly to the left.

Get a festive wreathhere.

There is so much to be merry about at Christmastime. If you’re lucky enough to be expecting the world’s best present, take advantage of the lights, snow, pine needles, and bright red bows when you share your Season’s Greetings!
