Why Make a New-years Pregnancy Announcement

While announcing your pregnancy is exciting any time of year, I cannot think of a more perfect time to announce the arrival of a new life than at the beginning of the new year. New Year’s Eve celebrations are full of new beginnings, New Year’s resolutions, and new mantras to take into the year to come.

You might want to shift the date around a bit so check out Christmas pregnancy announcement ideas and Valentine’s Day pregnancy announcement ideas too!

Letter boards and pregnancy announcement props have been a trendy way to announce pregnancy in recent years. They come in a wide variety of sizes and formats and are an excellent choice if you’re not the artistic type. You could pick up a letterboard and spell out “2024: Adding One More” or “Ready to Pop in 2024,” “No toasting for us tonight! Baby Smith due June 2024,” etc. 

Check out these adorable ideas to use for your New-years pregnancy announcement. Some of them you can even personalize and buy on Etsy if you want to go that route.

Try Featuring Your Ultrasound Images

Whether you want to be featured in your pregnancy announcement or not you can use your ultrasound images. Any time someone sees a blurry black-and-white graphic of something resembling a blob or a dinosaur, they know what that means!

The ultrasound images can either be the main feature of your photo or nestled in the background. Either way gets the point across.

Use New Year’s Props

Set a table full of New Year’s decor. Black, gold, and glitter are perfect. You can use champagne glasses, festive hats, those silly glasses that have the year on them, or anything you can find on the New Year’s aisle of your local party store.
