Just wanting opinions.... Planning on telling everyone including my mum I'm pregnant with my 2nd baby by sending out pregnancy announcement cards in the post. Is this to impersonal... Or should I be telling certain people face to face xxx thanks all

Is this some new thing? Just tell or ring who is important. Let word get round.
Cards? Seriously?

Tell them face to face. I've never heard of anyone sending out pregnancy announcement cards.

Do you not like your mum?

I personally would do it face to face, particularly with parents who might see it as being a little distant.

The cards do sound like a lovely alternative to Facebook though!

Congratulations flowers

Call your Mum and your MIL or go and see them. For goodness sake don't send them a card.

Pregnancy announcement cards? That's... er unusual. Why do you need to announce it. Tell your families, your best friends and it will work its way round.

Thanks all, of course I like my mum !! I don't think it's that much of a new thing, I've received a few in the past from family and friends and thought it was a nice alternative to Facebook announcement for those closer to us. But your probably right and telling mum and mil first. I realise now that the fact I was writing this meant I was doubting myself! X

Good decision Watt.

I didn't announce of FB either. I just called immediate family, our three best friends and told my boss.

The grapevine (and my disappearing waistline) did the rest.
