#1: After we got the results back from the NT scan I posted an ultrasound with the caption "David McK is going to be a daddy, and I'm pretty sure it's mine."
D posted a screen shot from Alien(s?) with the caption: "Attention to All my friends and Family; My wife has a parasite the size of a peach growing inside her womb. The doctors say it will naturally exit the body sometime in early august. Stay tuned."
#2: We waited until after we found at the sex. I posted an ultrasound with a bow on it: "After much debate, Dave and I have decided to get Evan a pink unicorn for Christmas. Apparently the stork did not get the memo that McK's have a long-standing tradition of gracing with world with male children...bring on the pink sparkles!"

1. At 15 weeks - On the day of a big run, I posted that I wouldn't be wearing a race bib but there would be plenty of bibs in our house in October. me and Baby T would be cheering on Daddy who was running.
2. National Sibling Day was when I was about 24 weeks, so I took a pic of DD1 hugging my belly and just said in honor of national sibling day...

I posted a picture of me at 20 weeks with a picture of the ultrasound! I waited a long time to post to facebook.
Actually, funny story.
Someone commented on the picture and said, "Whoa! When did this happen?!?!"
And I replied, "About 20 weeks ago."

With our first, we never did. DH posted a pic of me and DD in the hospital. You could immediately tell which friends were actually in touch with us regularly.
With our second, we posted a family pic when I was about 20 weeks. We were on vacation for the 4th of July and so captioned it, "Happy 4th from the four of us!"

We didn't announce on Facebook until either of our babies were born. Then we just posted a photo and said "look what we made!"

DH posted on both of our accounts after LO was born with the birth announcement. I specifically asked that people not comment about the pregnancy on my Facebook and untagged pics that were too obvious. I just felt weird about it.

For my first I had gifted DH a NFL team onesie for his birthday. So we shared that picture.
With #2, I had a video of DD1 reading a big sister book and saying she was going to be a big sister!

With LO, DH posted a video of the heartbeat on Doppler and tagged me in it. It was at 13 weeks.
Not entirely sure what we will do with this one. I'm 14 weeks, so we're going to wait until we know the sex and then post something. All our close friends know already, so it's not much of a reveal.

With DS, we had a photographer do some announcement pictures for us and I changed my profile and cover photo.
With DD, I made a lil comic strip with DS wearing a Future Big Brother shirt and his numerous facial expressions.

We actually just announced today, after our NT scan yesterday. It was a picture of two big pumpkins and one small pumpkin with a caption that said "We're adding a little pumpkin to our patch!" I'm just over 12 weeks.
@wrkbrk: @MrsLonghorn: Thanks! I love that clip. It's so funny that they couldn't say pregnant on TV back then!

@mrsjazz: I love this so much! made me cry watching it again, so sweet
We got married in Jan.2011 at a hockey game, the Bruins had just won the Stanley Cup for the first time in 39 years - so we announced that 2011 we were expecting our personal 'hat trick'.

We annouced our pregnancy on FB after the NT scan, so around 12 weeks. The first thing my husband bought for the baby was the pedal car (total car geek) so hence the car theme.
For the gender reveal (at about 20 weeks), it was so close to Halloween that we used pumpkins as our props.

We announced after we found out gender, so I put a lil bow on her ultrasound head. and it read "it's a girl! meeting the world winter 2014"
@Charm54: haha I love this for #2 (beside the big sister thing)... B/c that is totally how my dog will think!
