Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

First of all, I love what I do and the success Pearl Pear Designs has been so far.  My shop has chalkboard printable files that people use to announce their pregnancy.  I originally designed one to announce and track my pregnancy and now I have a shop filled with over 100 different designs and hundreds of sales.  It's been so fun and I love being a part of everyone's big announcement.

Here are some recent pregnancy announcements/ tracking with my signs from  Pearl Pear Designs.

Pregnancy Week by Week Tracking Pictures

Isn't she darling?  I have a few options for taking bi-weekly/ monthly pregnancy pictures.  This is one of my favorite designs, it's a 16x20 custom last name chalkboard print that tracks the progress of your baby.  

Pennant I'm being Promoted to Big Brother/ Big Sister Chalkboard

Love these cute pregnancy announcements with the colored pennants.  I love seeing how the customers choose to use the announcements.  Some are framed (like the first announcement) or held/put on foamboard (like the one below).  Either way it is so cute!

Guard Dog Pregnancy Announcement

Dogs are definitely a part of the family.  I love these cute pregnancy announcements using their dogs.  The phrase "guard dog" is used for some of these designs and I love how they turned out!

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Baby....

I love the customization for this pregnancy chalkboard announcement.  You can include the important dates of love, marriage, then of course BABY!

We're Expecting Pregnancy Announcement Chalkboard

I love when customers take beautiful pictures.  I'm not even close to a beach or palm trees so it's gorgeous when they take pictures with a beautiful scenery.

Guess what, we're expecting pregnancy announcement

 Some of my most popular designs this month is a set of three signs like the one below.  Customers choose to take one picture (with all three signs) or take separate pictures like this to announce their pregnancy.

Last Name Customized Pregnancy Announcement

I love customized... well pretty much anything.  I love when things are personal and they just are special to me.  Many of my designs display the last name of the baby coming.  So cute!  I also have 

Birthday Chalkboard Stats

I love the cute designs I have up for birthday chalkboard prints. Customers use these for cake smashes, birthday decor, and for pictures.  I love how cute they are!

9 months

I was a little behind with his pictures, but it's finally up and little O is 9 months!  He is still cutest thing around and has the sweetest disposition.  When I pick him up he'll wrap his arms around my neck for hugs and his new thing is to give me kisses on my cheek.  He loves my hair and knows to be gentle with it.  When he nurses or when I hold him he loves to stroke my hair or grab onto it, even when it's pulled back in a ponytail.

He is becoming really active and is a little explorer and loves watching kids.  We'll go to the zoo and he'll just watch kids and see what they are doing.  We went on the plane with him last month and he was sooo good!  We had four plane rides altogether there and back and he was amazing.  He loves being with mom and dad.

I thought this picture was really cute, he gets so excited and happy when we play around, wrestle, or tickle.  

He loves being on his knees and is taking a few knee steps before getting his tummy on the ground, he's been able to cross the room the last few weeks and we call his new crawl "the worm" because that's exactly what it looks like.
