We Love This Pictionary Pregnancy Announcement
I am a sucker for a good pregnancy announcement. I love the creativity that can go into pregnancy announcements, the excitement swirling around them, and the fact that you never really know what you're going to get. Will everyone be surprised? Will they cry? Will there be champagne for everyone? (Well, except the pregnant woman, obviously.)
True surprise pregnancy announcements are the best because it's just unfiltered emotion. You can't get much better than that. I love watching other people's faces on pregnancy announcement videos because it's just so fun to see the realization dawn and the smiles start. I remember when my sister-in-law and brother-in-law announced their first pregnancy, my first niece, and I had to fight back the urge to cry. I was just so darn happy and to be on the receiving end of a pregnancy announcement (instead of the one usually announcing!) was so special.
Whatever way you choose to announce your pregnancy, it's a special occasion and we just can't help but love how one couple chose to break the news to their friends, who it should be noted, took an especially long time to guess it.
One pregnancy announcement that I definitely haven't seen before is this video announcement, where a couple used my favorite-ever game, Pictionary, to help bring on the clues to lead everyone to their big news.
The pregnant lady in question starts out playing the game pretty legitimately, getting her teammate to guess “crocodile tears,” but then she branches off into one she says that she's “not sure” they will know. The friends are super confused, even when she draws out a clearly pregnant women and emphatically circles her bulging belly several times.
“Circle of life?” they guess. “Day baby?”
The couple who is pregnant, with the mom the one that's drawing and the dad-to-be, who is filming, can't help but crack up at their friends' wild guesses.
“I'm not sure I can make this more obvious!” the pregnant mama exclaims at one point. The guessing goes on for almost an entire minute longer before she finally draws a huge, black arrow pointing from the pregnant woman on the board to herself … and they still don't get it.
“You guys are super smart people!” she laughs, shaking her head. “It's really not that complicated!”
When they finally get it, all four of them break down in tears and one giant group hug. It's a super cute video and it's definitely worth a watch if you're need of a feel-good moment today!
