Final Words

I know that we’re probably all sick of the same boring, classic baby showers and baby announcements. It’s time to do it a little bit differently in a way that showcases your motherly connection to your baby.

You can be creative and do some arts and crafts that will make your pregnancy announcement unique and different, and show the kind of mom you’re going to be.

Of course, make sure you announce your pregnancy before your baby bump starts showing. That means you should do it in the first trimester, which is probably the most exhausting one for all pregnant women.

I know how exhausting and tiring those first three months can be which is why I shared these fun and interesting pregnancy riddles with you to announce your pregnancy.

You can still be creative and make some decorations or for example, write the riddle on a chalkboard or get it printed on your T-shirts.

Sharing this big news with your family members and the people you love is exciting because they’ll be as happy as you are. Use one of these pregnancy riddles to surprise them big time.
