10) Sentimental Announcement
Jalina announced a subsequent pregnancy with the below picture, which holds a lot of meaning to her. She explains:
Our second son (born May 2018) was conceived after a miscarriage. We announced his pregnancy on our 6-year wedding anniversary in October, so we shared the announcement picture with the caption “6 years later…” .
In the announcement, I am wearing my wedding dress. We originally wanted my husband to wear his Dress Blues but thought that would be disrespectful as the uniform no longer fit well and he did not have the proper haircut, so instead, we included the Dress Blues in the background. We had just moved to Upstate New York from Southern California the week before, which we represented with a scene of beautiful greenery and fall foliage! Also in the background is a small cross, as my husband and I had been newly baptized together earlier that year. Of course, Big Brother was included, wearing his “Big Brother” shirt!
This announcement was symbolic of all the changes that had happened since our wedding day 6 years prior and was a fun 6-year followup kind of picture as well as a pregnancy announcement!
Keep your announcement simple, incorporate your family, and enjoy this special time.
Oh yes, and Congratulations!
