In the old days, pregnancy announcements were unheard of. In fact, women went to great lengths to hide the news, even going so far as to stay in the house for a “confinement” period. Even in more modern times, pregnancy was considered a bit of a dirty word. For example, on “I Love Lucy,” network censors would not let the cast use the word “pregnant” at all—even as the character was rushing to the hospital to give birth!
Thankfully, those days are far behind us. Now, we can be proud of our baby bumps and revel in our pregnancy bliss. So, if you are ready to announce your pregnancy, check out some of these funny, sweet and adorable ideas!
