How to announce pregnancy to grandparents

To break the news to future grandparents you can prepare a family dinner by setting an extra seat, or by giving them a well-packaged baby bottle or by inviting them to an exclusive café in the city and leaving a note hidden under the cup.

Announce the pregnancy to relatives

The parents on both sides and any brothers and sisters are about to become grandparents and uncles: very important roles that will change their lives, especially if it is the first nephew. If we want to play by the rules and make sure no one gets hurt, it's better to privilege them rather than friends.

To break the news to your circle of friends you could organize an evening with happy hour and strictly non-alcoholic drinks!

But beware: publishing the ad on social media could turn out to be a false step: in practice it means announcing it to the world, because all the people who see it (maybe hundreds) could then tell someone else. It is the last step to take, after all the people closest to us have already been informed directly.

How to tell friends who have fertility problems

Let's not avoid them, waiting (or hoping) that they find out from other people. Despite the situation, they will appreciate it.

Original ways to document a pregnancy

Announce pregnancy at work

As for the workplace, rule number 1 is: tell your boss first, then your colleagues. Even if we have colleagues who have become friends, and are now literally dying to say so, it is always best to inform management first, even if it means waiting. Almost always the announcement of a pregnancy in the workplace is a delicate moment in itself, better to manage it with the utmost maturity and fairness.

When to announce a pregnancy

When should pregnancy be announced? In reality there is no rule that applies to everyone. There are those who wait for the infamous three months and those who reveal all day after taking the test. The important thing is not to think out of preconceptions, not to do what we think others expect from, but at least this time let's take our time! In the ninth month everyone will notice it anyway.

Respect some "priorities" that serve more than anything else to not create unnecessary tensions, it is nice to be able to make an announcement to whoever we want: it may be that one morning we want to reveal it to the cashier of the supermarket that we have never seen before, or that instead we don't feel like involving other people who are theoretically closer. Now things are completely in our hands.

What if we are the ones who receive the news of the pregnancy?

Also in this case, the best choice is to stay on the traditional and limit ourselves to congratulations, but expressing all our joy and participation for such beautiful news. Despite what one might think, pregnant women hear a lot of nosy or nosy phrases (we talked about it here). The commonality of almost all the nasty remarks a pregnant woman receives is the violation of her privacy.

Here are some phrases that please a person who has just discovered that they are expecting a baby.

  • The classic "Congratulations."
  • "You will be a wonderful mother."
  • "What a lucky child!"
  • "Can I help you?"
  • "Rest: making another human being is tiring!"
  • "It seems like a walk in the park to see you carry on a pregnancy!"
  • When he eats something "It looks delicious." (Pregnant women feel guilty about almost everything they eat!)
  • And why not focus on physical appearance? Everyone knows that pregnant women are the most beautiful.
  • "Looking from behind you don't look pregnant."
  • "You are even more beautiful now / You are radiant."
  • “Did you do something to your hair? You look great."

For you what were the most beautiful phrases what did they ask you during your pregnancy? And which ones you never wanted to hear?
