Did you know that May is Pregnancy Awareness Month?
It’s true! Around a decade ago May was declared Pregnancy Awareness Month. The organization behind it has since gone bust, but we can still celebrate, right? Let’s talk about how you can celebrate with us and join in on the month dedicated to those of us with bumps.
Join A Pregnancy Community
You can celebrate your pregnancy by joining a group of mamas going through pregnancy right along side you. It’s a great way to connect with others who are feeling and experiencing the same thing as you.
Here’s a few we recommend:
- I Heart Pregnancy on Facebook
- Nub Theory Guesses Facebook Group
Prepare Your Announcement
If you haven’t announced already, now is an amazing time so long as you’re ready. We have found SO many pregnancy announcements we love on Etsy. We also have some amazing Pinterest boards here that are chalked full of great ideas.
Announcing your pregnancy can be as simple as telling family and friends or as fun as leading them on a scavenge hunt. Let’s not forget all of the fun and creative ideas for announcing your pregnancy.
This is still one of my all-time favorites:
Plan Your Party
If you or your family is excited to get your party on, there are so many options.
- Have a gender reveal party.
- Have one (or many) baby showers.
- Host a moms night out.
Find a Photographer
Maternity photographers are SO important. Incase you haven’t noticed, we’re kind of obsessed with maternity photography. We like to share a lot of poses, styles, trends and viral photographers because there are so many creative ideas out there – and they get better every day.
If you’re wondering if you should hire a pro, I’m just sayin’….
Finally, Pregnancy Awareness Month was all about celebrating your pregnancy and that’s what we’re here to do. We only get a chance to experience pregnancy for a limited time in our lives. Let’s make it so amazingly awesome and full of memories that we can cherish them for the rest of our lives.
