"I'm pregnant."

There are few other phrases in the English language that create such a whirlwind of feelings -- joy, fear, elation, excitement, anxiety, worry. Sharing those words with loved ones, especially your partner, is a moment you'll remember the rest of your life.

My first pregnancy was hard won, so that was news that was especially fun to share. I remember my mom staring at me hard; I think she was trying to figure out if she'd really heard what she thought she'd heard. It's so much fun to have a thrilling secret and then to share it with the people you love.

If you're the creative type, Babies Online has 10 fun ways to share your pregnancy news with your loved ones. You could stick a sonogram in a stack of photos before you share them, wrap up a photo frame with a note inside that has your due date on it, or give your parents a book especially for grandparents.
